This motel is a beautiful facility that is clean, comfortable and placed in the midst of a picture perfect setting.
The owners Greg and Cathy are exemplary in their approach to their business and attention to their guests.
From the moment we arrived we felt that we were in a well managed and cared for property.
Cathy suggested and even reserved a dinner table at a local establishment that was fantastic.
A beautiful property but an even better experience provided by the owners!

Hi Donna and Dave,
We truly appreciate the kind words and are so happy that you guys were so comfortable at the Cornerstone Motel!
We treat all of our guests with great care and always take the required time to share our local knowledge on restaurants and places to see so you will experience the best we have to offer in Cheticamp! We figure that when you come here, you come to experience everything and your not just here for a bed. Just ask, we will always help set up a great meal, tips on places to see and travel on the trail!
You guys were great to have here and we can’t wait to have you back sometime soon!

Perfect base location for all your Highlands National Park excursions!

The cornerstone motel is in an ideal location. The trails and benches along the river were an incredible spot to enjoy our morning coffee and prepare for our daily activities. The room was very comfortable and very economical. Next time we visit we plan to stay a week as it is a perfect home base to so many incredible hiking trails.
Cathy and Greg were very friendly and accommodating! We look forward to visiting again.

We really appreciate you guys taking the time to share your experience with other travelers so they too can enjoy the same experience you had at the Cornerstone Motel!
We are idealy situated to many of the best trails, 15 min to the SKYLINE Trail, 2 min to the ACADIAN Trail and the closest Motel to the Cape Breton Highlands National Park since we share the boarder of the park on 2 sides of the property!! As well the most famous part of the Cabot Trail is only 8 min away (as it winds into the mountains) and sunsets are spectacular from the Grande Falaise lookout only 3 min away by car!!
We so enjoyed having you here and we hope to see you back soon!

We accidentally booked for the previous night online but we wanted the next night. The owner called us to confirm our reservation and then graciously changed it with no issues. The accommodations were clean, modern, newly updated, the owners were polite, friendly and very accommodating and we loved our stay; we will definitely be coming back! (Aug 2021 – Google Reviews)

We stopped in on our way back to Ottawa. The place was beautiful, the owners worked hard and it shows. The rooms were comfortable. I would stay here again anytime.

We are constantly improving the property and we take great pride in having it look like it does. We want our guests to know that we want them to feel they are staying at a place where small details count!
Hope to see you back soon Guy!

We had a nice night in a colorful, clean, quaint, welcoming rest stop. We took a little hike to the river, made a little campfire, nice owners. Just wish there was a small ice machine but the gas station was a mile or so down the road so don’t sweat the small stuff! It was a very nice stay in a trustworthy environment and I appreciate that.

Thanks Shelley, we are thrilled knowing we made you feel at home at the Cornerstone Motel and that you were able to relax here!
We wish we had known you needed ice, as we have FREE ice at the office for drinks and small bag coolers. Our bad for not mentioning it when you registered, but sometimes we too forget some finer points, but next time you will know and others that read this will as well.
We are looking forward to hosting you next time you are out this way!
