Welcome to Cape Breton and the HI-Cabot Trail Hostel
Cape Breton Island is the ideal vacation destination for all ages and cultures. Cape Breton Island has so many breath taking views, with a surprise around every corner. It is home of the world famous Cabot Trail which has been voted one of the “world’s best road trips” by The Lonely Planet and other publications. The “jewel in the crown” of Cape Breton is the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, this 1000 square kilometer reserve is home to various wildlife such as Moose, Bear, Eagles and many more, it boasts over 20 hikes for people of all activity levels. From these hikes you have the opportunity to see beautiful waterfalls, amazing scenery, lots of wildlife and even spot whales playing in the water.
The HI-Cabot Trail Hostel is under new ownership with Shane Pizzariello who took over the property in July, 2013. Last year there were some little fixes done to the hostel with the deck and railings being refinished. This year we will be putting new roof on the hostel, adding a horse-shoe pit and a fire pit for our guests to enjoy. 2014 will be my first full season and I am looking forward to meeting all the unique hostelers and travelers that will be passing through. I am always good for a coffee, a chat and some tunes on the guitar………see ya soon!!!!
