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.
Located on the Cabot Trail, south of Cape Smokey. Close to the only road into the Highlands from the eastern side of the Island. For the golf enthusiast, the Sleeping Moose is located between the Bell Bay Golf Course in Baddeck (Best Value Course in Canada 2001) and The Highland Links in Ingonish Beach (#1 Golf Course in Canada 2000). We're less than a half hour from some of the finest fresh and salt water fishing in Eastern Canada. Cape Breton Highlands National Park is just a scenic 25-km drive away, and hiking trails are plenty. Cape Breton is a beautiful island in all seasons of the year, and the Sleeping Moose is available year-round, fully insulated and equipped with electric heat and your own wood stove.
