  • Stumbled across this place while exploring Nova Scotia and was blown away. Great place to visit to be alone with your thoughts and take in the view of the bay. It takes a couple of hours worth of driv...  more »
  • Probably one of the prettiest look offs in Nova Scotia. Fantastic area and wonderful spot for not only a lighthouse but a bed and breakfast. Definitely worth the trip. 
  • On our way from New Brunswick we took the advice of the Lonely Planet and headed for what turned out to be a 4 hour detour to Cap D'or and what a great decision that was. Despite being a little diffic...  more »

  • It's a long, windy and sometimes rough path towards the Cape d'Or Lighthouse but the trip is well worth it. You end up at a quiet lighthouse with spectacular views of the Bay of Fundy and the unique landscape. The weather was nice but windy when we arrived and there were very few other tourists. You are able to explore fairly freely here so long as you are careful.
  • I 'Grew up' here over many years, due to my Father's Brother-In-Law (My Uncle, Phil Morris) was one of the Lighthouse Keepers here for many years. The views, the 'pulse' of the ocean, are always invigorating, to say the least. Always check ahead to see when the Cafe is open, as that is a newfound treat as well. Having many a 4x4 myself over the years, and my family before that, traversing the steep hill up and down was never an issue; but if you have never attempted it before, DON'T! LOL! Better err on the side of caution, especially if you are not a trained & experienced 4x4 steep hill climbing driver.
  • This is Nova Scotia at its best. Truly stunning views, and a strong sense of ruggedness. It's a little off the beaten path, and the road in is unpaved and narrow, but it's totally worth the drive. There is a small café, though it wasn't open during my visit (early November).
  • It was quite and experience staying at the cape. It is worth it for the food and views alone, but the people we met were just wonderful. We had the pleasure of running into our fellow B&Bers as well as our inn-keeper many times during our short stay in the area. Recommended for adventurous B&Bers.
  • Wonderful. Lovely. Beautiful. A unique place to stay. And the dinner & breakfast prepared just for us were exquisite. Definitely a favorite of our road trip. PS: do not drive down the last 100 meters unless you have 4wd.
