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!

You guys were great to have here and we can’t wait to have you back sometime soon!

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)

BEST Fall Colors!

What a great place to stay, fall colors right outside your window. View of the river flowing behind the motel . Lots of places to roam on the large property with some nice trails and benches to allowing you to get away and watch the world go by. Room was excellent with all the things you need to enjoy your stay. The room was super clean and this might be strange to review but the picture window that has the view of the river was so clean you would swear you were outside not looking through a window . Not many places you can say that about. We were travelling with another couple and we were both impressed on how clean rooms and well equipped the rooms were.

We meet the owners Greg and Cathy at check-in who gave us the low down on what was around to visit, Cabot trail, where to eat in town, how to get to places off the beaten path. What could be better beautiful views, free info, free coffee. Greg even set us up with firewood for a great campfire while we enjoyed the great fall weather. Would be back to stay here in a heart beat. Great place and great owners.

Two amazing days in a perfect location to be ready to enjoy the hiking and swimming. The front desk host Cathy is amazing! She is so knowledgeable and kind. Her morning coffee make you feel right at home. Refreshing river. Cannot wait to go again and see the restaurant next year!
