Directions to the Hostel
There are 3 main ways that you can access the Cabot Trail, after you cross the Canso Causeway.
  1. Follow the rotary just after the causeway, towards Inverness and Cheticamp, route 19, Ceilidh Trail
  2. Take the Trans-Canada-Highway #105, turn left onto the Cabot Trail, at the Red Barn Restaurant and Gift Shop, in Nyanza. (approximately 77kms from the Canso Causeway)
  3. Take the Trans-Canada-Highway #105 through to St Ann’s, here you can travel by road past the Gaelic college or stay on the highway a few more minutes and cross by the English Town Ferry. Route 312 (approximately 110kms from the Canso Causeway)

Thanks Dawn for making us feel so welcome and comfortable. The Hostel is set up very well, but your personal efforts and interest have made our time here very special. Thanks for the Herbs (great idea!!) and all the tips/info re local area. Pleased we confirmed that ‘Muskrat picture’. This was our first experience in hostelling after 30 years of travelling. But now we will definitely do it again sooner.
