The ZzzzMoose Camping Cabins are 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 cabin 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.
We are an all-season accommodation!
The Guests have access to our private (rock) beach. A perfect place to make a small camp fire in the evenings.
And off course access to The Dancing Moose cafe where we serve breakfast & lunch, home baked treats and on request we can provide simple but good evening meals.
Interaction with Guests
The ZzzzMoose Camping Cabins are part off and on the property of the Dancing Moose Cafe (3.7 acres with (rock) beach access). We the owners live under the Cafe and are "part of the property". The Cabins are build in a way that they have the most possible privacy.
We love to interact with our guests but that is totally up to the guests themselves.
There is no public transit on the Cabot trail.
Car or Bike are necessary to be able to "get around"
We have our own parking lot and parking is free.
Other Things to Note
The basic rate for the Cabins is $70.00 but we have to charge HST 15% that makes the total for 1 night, up to 4 people $80.50.
The Cabins are fully insulated and there is a small electrical stove in them that makes them nice an comfortable, even in harsh winter conditions.
Smoking is only allowed outside and we ask our guests to clean up the buts. (we have free range Chickens and they might eat those)
We had a wonderful stay at the ZzzMoose cabin. The cabin itself was clean and had adequate heat. Even though the washroom was separate, it was just ~40ft away, very clean and we had our own private 3 pc washroom which could be locked. You should definitely take a walk down to the beach if you get a chance, we saw a few seals bobbing up and down in the ocean. Also, do try the pannekoek at the Dancing Moose Cafe. Overall a great experience and would be quite a bit of fun if you had little kids.
The cabin was great, clean and compact. Was the perfect place to rest our heads after our long journey. Even though the weather wasn't always co-operating, we managed to make the best of it.
Great place! Even though it wasn't great weather it was great to spend our last night in Nova Scotia sitting on a porch by the ocean, completely protected from the rain. Ton and co. were very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast at the cafe was one of the best meals of the trip!
Nice place on the Cabot trail. Basic cabine with nice view on the ocean. Very friendly owners. Ton gave us really good advice to discover the neighborhood! Little gem in Nova Scotia.
Thanks door the great stay!
Exactly as described. Ton was very helpful and his small cafe provided great breakfast choices. Clean, nice, private bathroom with limited hot water but enough for more than adequate showers. Great rocky beach. We asked for linens/towels and Ton provided them.
We were very impressed by Ton and the ZzzzMoose Luxury Camping. The 'wooden tents' are very nicely constructed cabins. They are clean as are the nearby private bathrooms. The Dancing Moose cafe is convenient and has great food. Ton and his family are very accommodating.
Ton was a great host! We made our booking at the last minute, and he communicated promptly and was flexible about the check in time. The cabin was perfect - very clean, cosy with the heater and had plenty of space. The views can't be beat! On an island with beautiful coastal views, the private beach about two minutes from the cabins takes the cake.
