The Sleeping Moose, modern & cosy

Cabin - Entire home/apt · Cabot Trail, Ingonish Beach, NS B0C 1L0, Canada

The Space

The Sleeping Moose Cottage: 2 bedrooms (sleeps 5), modern bath, wood stove, private beach access"

The Sleeping Moose Cottage is located on the North Shore of Cape Breton Island, 8 km south of Cape Smokey, between the Cape Breton Highlands National Park (25 km) and the town of Baddeck (65 km) on the Bras d'Or Lakes.

The North Shore, originally settled by Scots in the early 1800s, is now home to lots of moose, a crab and lobster fishery (May - July), as well as many fine artisans and crafters.

From the deck of the Sleeping Moose Cottage you might see whales and seals, for sure ocean birds, and 'our' Bald Eagle who does a 'fly-by' a couple of times a day. Walk to our pebble beach and enjoy the beautiful view and sometimes-loud silence of the waves hitting the pebbles.

There are lots of hiking and snowshoeing trails in and outside the National Park, and if you like golf... Highland Links is a beautiful 25-minute drive away.

The Sleeping Moose is a housekeeping cottage with a full kitchen, but it is conveniently located on the same property as the Dancing Moose Cafe. It serves unusual breakfasts and lunches bilt around Dutch Pannekoeken (stuffed pancakes), Belgian waffles, a daily soup, and baked treats, all made from scratch in our own kitchen.

We are an all-season accommodation. Start your day watching the sun rise over the ocean. Then, spend a lazy summer's eve on your private deck watching the stars come out. Light a cosy fire in your wood stove on chilly evenings, or in winter when snow has changed the landscape. On rainy days, enjoy a free movie or a bit of surfing with our free wireless Internet.

  • Ton was an excellent host! He is very knowledgeable about about Cape Breton and gave us some useful tips for places to hike that we would not have found in a guidebook.
    The cabin was totally different to anywhere we have stayed before. It was very peaceful and cosy even in freezing temperatures. I would recommend these cabins to anyone.

  • Ton was a great host and the cabin was great. No frills, but the cabin was clean and exactly as advertised. Ton and his wife did a great job of clearing a path through the snow for us from our car to the cabin. Would definitely recommend and would try to book again if I came back to the area. The food at the dancing moose cafe was also delicious. The Pannekonen (sp??) while not Canadian, were definitely the best meal I had during my stay in Canada.
