Keltic Lodge at The Highlands
Keltic Lodge at The Highlands is regarded as one of Atlantic Canada’s premier resorts, and sits on the dramatic Middle Head Peninsula on the north shore of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.
Built in 1904, The Keltic Lodge was the former summer home of Henry and Julia Corson until the land was purchased by the Province of Nova Scotia for tourism purposes. In 1939, Stanley Thompson was commissioned to design The Highlands golf course, which he later called ‘the mountains and ocean’ course, often ranked one of the best courses in Canada.
The resort offers 120 rooms, suites and cottages of multiple styles including rooms in the 1950’s Main Lodge featuring original hardwood floors or modernised rooms in The Corson House, formerly known as the Keltic Inn. A series of two and four-bedroom cottages offer a home-away-from home experience for families and groups of friends.
The lodge offers a variety of dining options including the upscale Purple Thistle Dining Room, surrounded by views of the Atlantic Ocean and Highlands and serving breakfast buffets and a succulent menu of fresh lobster, seafood and meats for dinner.
The Spa at Keltic is positioned in a serene setting on Middle Head Peninsula, surrounded by panoramic views of Ingonish Beach and Cape Smokey. The spa features indoor and outdoor hot tubs, saunas and a team of beauty therapists offering a comprehensive range of treatments.
