The Ocean View Motel & Chalets is located to the north of the Acadian village of Cheticamp, across from the entrance to Le Portage Golf Club on the ocean side of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The smell of the sea and rumble of the surf as it pounds the beach lulls you into a tranquil sleep and leaves you well rested to enjoy a walk along the boardwalk, a day of whale watching or a round of challenging golf on your doorstep. We are ideally located for the day tripper, being 88 Km or 1 hour drive from Baddeck, or a leisurely 2 hour excursion or 115 Km from Ingonish and the Highland Links.
As you enter Cape Breton at Port Hastings it is a mere 150 Km or 2 hour 15 minute drive along the Ceilidh and Cabot Trails to our location. Marvel at the view of the Cabot Trail and enjoy the flight of the bald eagles and other nesting birds along the coast of the St. Lawrence, Bras d’Or or Lake Ainslie.
If you wish to fly into Sydney airport, we’re only 180 Km or a 2 hour 15 minute drive through spectacular scenery and friendly folks. The International Airport in Halifax is 4 hours 30 minutes away but you will have plenty of time to rest and take advantage of the Golf Club or stroll within the village along the boardwalk before the sun sets.
Come visit the Ocean View where Acadian hospitality and red hot sunsets viewed from your lawn as the red disk slides into the Gulf or experience the thrill of a King salmon on your fly, fighting for hours before being landed.
