The Lighthouse on Cape d'Or

Cape d'Or, Nova Scotia, B0M 1A0, Canada

Before automation, two lighthouse keepers manned the light on rocky Cape d'Or, and their cottages have been transformed into a small inn with unparalleled views of the Minas Basin. Guest rooms are basic and only one has an en suite bath, but there's a welcoming common area with a breakfast bar, books, games, and a small refrigerator, and there's an excellent restaurant on-site (closed Wednesday). Although getting here is challenging—follow the road (locally known as the Cape Road) off Highway 209 from Advocate Harbour, then park and walk down a steep gravel path (locally known as the Road to Whistle)—the wild beauty repays your effort.
