The Salmon Pool Inn.

An inviting inn featuring real Cape Breton Hospitality.

Spend some time relaxing amidst the peaceful and lush greenery of Cape Breton at the Salmon Pool Inn. 

Located on Cape Breton Island, just minutes from the world famous Cabot Trail, the Salmon Pool Inn sits on the peaceful Margaree River, the most prosperous Atlantic salmon river in Nova Scotia.  

Bob Shortt welcomes you to get away and relax at the Salmon Pool Inn.  Stay in our luxurious Lodge or Annex or, for the utmost in privacy, stay in our self-contained house-keeping cottage.  Spend time meeting other guests in our lounge, have an authentic down home kitchen party in our fully-equipped kitchen or sit on our veranda watching the sunset and listening to the river rolling by.

Our location makes it ideal, not only for the perfect fishing vacation, but for sampling the true Cape Breton lifestyle.  The crisp, fresh, East Coast air is alive with rich heritage and culture.  Spend a day on the golf course or the beach, spend time in the great outdoors hiking or bird-watching and be sure to take in the ultimate scenic drive; the Cabot Trail.

We offer traditional charm and East Coast hospitality at its finest.  The Salmon Pool Inn is the perfect stop for fishing trips with family and friends or for a romantic getaway to see the leaves change along the Cabot Trail.  Stay with us at the Salmon Pool Inn and we promise an experience you will never forget.
