MidTrail Motel & Inn

Traveller (116)
Room & Suite (43)
Dining (3)


Nestled in between the mountains of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and overlooking the sea, Pleasant Bay & the Midtrail showcase some of the best scenery that the Cabot Trail has to offer. All rooms are fully renovated and the restaurant serves a great selection of tasty dishes including Lobster, Mussels, Snow Crab & Scallops as well as a variety of other choices to accommodate most preferences. World class whale watching is just a short walk away and the hill behind the restaurant or the private beach below serve as amazing places to take in the incredible sunsets as they dip into the sea each night.

The person checking in my husband was rude and yelling at him asking if he was a construction worker. The wifi was so slow you can’t really say it even worked. The food was ok. The view and area here are what you are paying for. My husband could barely move in the morning his
