Did you know that the west side of Cape Breton Island is known as The Sunset Side? As the saying goes the sun rises in the East and sets in the West! What does that mean for our guests? You get the best of both worlds. Watch the sun rise over Robert’s Mountain with your morning coffee or tea and watch it set into the Gulf of St. Lawrence from your private hot tub or viewing deck! The entire west side of Cape Breton Island offers spectacular sunsets, that’s one thing all of our communities have in common! The west side runs from the Canso Causeway, up route 19, 219 and The Cabot Trail until you head towards Dingwall. Meat Cove, the most northern community on the west side has amazing sunsets as well! We would like to share with you an image from The Inverness County Activity Guide that highlights the sunset side communities of the Island! To give you a taste of these beautiful sunsets please enjoy these pictures taken in The Cape Breton Highlands National Park and Pleasant Bay, captured through the lens of talented artist Michel Soucy.
