Nestled in a secluded valley at the end of Doyle's Road, just 2 km from the Cabot Trail and the Hamlet of Margaree Forks, The OLD MILLER GUEST HOUSE is an excellent location for exploring beautiful Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia or serving as a base for travelers to "get lost in the Margarees".

We have converted our former B&B into a Four Star Canada Select Guest House. This Guest House is located across the driveway from the main home. (You can see this building in the pictures on this page). The kitchen, fully equipped, contains a dishwasher, stove, fridge, microwave and small convection oven as well as all the cooking and dinner utensils, towels and cleaning supplies one would need. A BBQ and laundry facilities are also supplied.

Contact Info for Old Miller Trout Farm Guest House :

The two bedrooms, each with a four piece bathroom, ('ensuite'), are upstairs. One bedroom contains a Queen sized bed, the other twin beds and a double futon/couch. The facility can sleep a maximum of six. Although not wheelchair accessible, the stairs leading to the second floor have hand rails on each side and are accessible for people with some ambulatory difficulties. All bed linens and towels are supplied as are beach towels.

There is an exit to a small deck on the second floor and an external staircase. Besides the kitchen, the main floor has a large sitting room that is excellent for relaxing, reading or watching Satellite T.V., (Star Choice). A computer offering high speed Internet access is available at no charge to our guests as is high speed wireless connectivity for those bringing their own laptops! Free long distance telephone service to the US and Canada makes it easy to keep in touch with friends and family back home!

Our property is an excellent location to come and go as one pleases, accessing the numerous beaches and whale excursions along the Gulf Coast, kayaking, day tripping to hiking trails locally and in the Highlands, visiting the Alexander Graham Bell Museum in Baddeck or the Highland Village in Iona as well as the Puffin Tours out of Englishtown or Seal Island or the “Fab 4 Golf Courses’!
Of course, there is still the mandatory circumnavigation of the Trail, (which can take one or several days). Even Fortress Louisburg can be visited on a scenic day trip.

A wonderful resource for the traveller is to obtain a free copy of Doers and Dreamers, Nova Scotia's Travel Guide, which may be obtained by surfing to and checking the link. In North America one can also obtain by calling 1-800-565-0000. Ask for extra information on Cape Breton Island when you do so!

For those planning summer travel, please be aware that there is a lot to do and see on Cape Breton. We have only highlighted a few of the numerous attractions. The biggest complaint guests make is that they left too little time to really see what is available! Roads are twisty with a view around every turn, hiking trails abound, waterfalls call, beaches, fresh water and ocean, beckon. And one does get lost in the Margarees!

For more information, check out, especially THINGS TO DO, ARTS & CRAFTS, PICTURE GALLERY and so on!

And remember, music, particularly Celtic Style music, is very much a part of Cape Breton culture, especially here in Inverness County. Indeed, during the summer, there is a music venue somewhere in the County virtually every day, be it a Ceilidh, dance or concert! However, in my opinion, the Three Fiddlers Ceilidh at the Barn is a must see! It is on Friday nights in June, September and October and Wednesday nights in July and August. Should you only be able to spend one night in Margaree area, make it a night when you can get to the Ceilidh! Check out the article on the "Magic of the Margarees" by clicking on the "Paradise Lost" article shown on the Macleans Icon on the THINGS TO DO section of the margareens web page.

Although our Guest House is well suited for families or two couples travelling together, when available we do offer one bedroom rental with the kitchen being shared.

Please note, we have a two day minimum policy for booking.
