"The Margaree River"
A Poem by: John Skotynski

There is a grand old river
on Cape Breton Isle
That's blessed with nature's
beautiful smile
From its birth in the Highlands
to its end at the sea
It's a wonderful river
The Margaree

In the deep dark pools
the salmon rest
Anxiously awaiting your
flies to test
Anglers' fondest dreams
become reality
In the sparkling pools of
The Margaree

An excellent location for day trips to all points of interest on Cape Breton Island

In Margaree Centre, 2.4 miles off the Cabot Trail, our cottages are ideal for a stress-free relaxing holiday. Walk across the field and salmon fish the beautiful, world-famous Margaree River, or go hunting, hiking or bird watching (a bald eagle is not an uncommon sight) and a twenty minute drive to an ocean beach. Winter is a time of invigorating outdoor activities! Snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and more, right from your door!
