Welcome to Bear on the Lake. We are perfectly located near the start of the Cabot Trail and offer the best view of the lakes on the island.

A LONELY PLANET 'Top Choice' Accommodation
BEAR ON THE LAKE GUESTHOUSE is at the heart of CANADA'S best kept secret!
Our central location on CAPE BRETON ISLAND makes our loved guesthouse a place to rest your backpack as you drive the breathtaking CABOT TRAIL and explore CAPE BRETON HIGHLANDS NATIONAL PARK.

We invite you to stay with us on the banks of the Bras D'Or Lakes, so you will have the best position to explore every nook and cranny of our enchanting island! Purposely forget your map on the kitchen table; this is a place to relax and lose yourself in your surroundings. As they say here on the island, 'There is no wrong turn!'.

While the Cabot Trail is likely your main attraction, be sure to budget extra time for discovering unexpected charms. Plan to spend extra days exploring the other lesser known, equally beautiful drives Cape Breton offers!

If en-route to/from the Newfoundland Ferry drop in and spend a day (or two!) with us before/after catching the boat! Our accommodation is less than an hour's drive to the North Sydney ferry terminal.

Lace up your hikers , grab your swimsuits, bring your musical instruments and your appetite! There is a little something here for everyone, of all ages! Amazing hiking, sandy beaches, world class sailing, kayaking, whale watching, international music and tasty seafood! Here at Bear on the Lake Guesthouse, you are in the midst of it all!

Sit back & grab a hammock, your bed is made for your arrival, so drop your bags and relax! Look for the eagles soaring over the lake and the wildlife walking in the backyard!

BBQ while taking in a 180 degree view of the lake, and later roast marshmallows over the campfire! As the moon rises over the lake, make a wish on one of the countless stars above!

Our dorm rooms sleep 3 to 5 people and our private rooms come with their own private lounge and balcony! If traveling is a family affair, we do offer special rooms for families on the road. Contact us to determine what type of room set-up will work best for you!

For further information or to make a booking, give us a call! We cannot wait to introduce you to our beautiful part of the world!

*IMPORTANT* If the dates you are looking to book appear unavailable - don't worry! We always keep a few beds open to prevent overbooking!

There are several local shuttle companies that drive by the hostel daily from Sydney/North Sydney and the Halifax/ Halifax Airport area. The price of a shuttle is LESS expensive than the the bus.

We have a \'Drive Share\' board at the hostel to help link travelers together. If you find yourself without wheels need a lift, try your luck posting a note. If you have a car & feel like company, take a peak at the board and feel welcome to offering a lift to a fellow traveler. Explore Cape Breton, connect with other travelers and make life long friends! It works!
