Driving through Cape Breton coastal villages and rural countryside does not prepare the innocent traveller for the sophistication and comfort of Cabot Links. Built on reclaimed land on a spectacular oceanfront site, the Cabot Links Inn offers views of the beautiful, first-class golf course and the ocean beyond. The rooms are wonderfully comfortable, spacious, with excellent bathrooms and the most comfortable bed we experienced on our three week trip to Maine and Nova Scotia. Our second floor room opened through sliding glass doors onto a small balcony with the course a few yards away. The management staff here were outstanding, making our three night stay a perfect long weekend and the Nova Scotia-made soft sheeps wool blankets are incomparable. This is a unique and special place, adjoining a first-rate restaurant with superb cuisine. We are planning to return as soon as possible.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Cabot Links features 36 holes of exhilarating links golf and one of the best experiences in the country. With two acclaimed courses, 72 rooms of award-winning accommodation at Cabot Links Lodge, 14 Golf Villas and exquisite dining in our three on-site restaurants, Cabot is designed to excite and inspire at every turn. Located on over a mile of sandy beach along the coast of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Cabot Links is Canada's first and only authentic links golf resort. Lauded as a golfer's paradise, the Rod Whitman designed Cabot Links course incorporates the rugged Nova Scotia landscape - dramatic seaside vistas with undulating terrain - and sandy soil. Our newest addition, Cabot Cliffs, is designed by the legendary team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw. The official opening is slated for June of 2016 and promises to provide an incredible golf experience, through coastal dunes and high atop the ocean-side Cliffs. ... more less
