Keltic Lodge Resort & Spa

World-renowned golf and spa resort

The Keltic Lodge rises majestically from Nova Scotia’s verdant pine forest in a spectacular setting overlooking the ocean. Dating from 1940, this resort is perhaps best known for being the home of Stanley Thomspon’s famed 18-hole Highlands Links Golf Course, which has been rated by Score Golf as one of the best in Canada. However, there’s much more to enjoy besides just golf thanks to the 5,000 square foot AVEDA spa, outdoor heated swimming pool and superb fishing opportunities. And after a busy day you can look forward to a meal at one of the award-winning restaurants before heading off to your luxurious and homely guest room.

Please note:

This property is located within a state park which requiers a park entry fee of $7 per person (not charged by the hotel).

Needs updating

South West England, United Kingdom

The hotel is in a lovely place. The staff are helpful. We had a problem with our room being cold and they helped us quickly moving us to another room. It does need some TLC. The restaurants were expensive. We didn't eat at any of them as there were other more reasonable places to eat in the area.

Cape Breton Island, Canada

This is the one of the peacefull place I have ever experienced in my Life. The price of this lodge is affordable for every one. The main hilight of this lodge is sea at the back. The employees are friendly to the customers.
