Property Setting

Situated on the site of a former coal mine, Cabot Links is Canada’s first authentic links course. Cabot Links is located in Inverness, on the west coast of Cape Breton Island. The course sprawls along the rugged shorelines of the St. Lawrence, surrounded by sandy dunes, rolling hills and wide green spaces.

Cape Breton and Inverness

Inverness is a rural community on the coast of glorious Cape Breton Island. Surrounded by grassy hills and bordering the ocean, the town is known for its rich culture, history and hometown hospitality. Trail hiking, deep sea fishing, swimming at Inverness Beach and golfing are just some of the outdoor recreational activities located nearby.

Guest Accommodations

The Cabot Links Lodge was designed by award‐winning, Halifax based architect, Susan Fitzgerald. The Lodge features well‐appointed guest rooms, each offering floor‐to‐ceiling views overlooking the entire golf course and out to the sea.
The suite interiors were designed by Alexandra Angle, giving the Cabot Links Lodge a combination of traditional and contemporary elements to create a truly luxurious and visually original place to unwind after a round of world‐class golf. With furnishings by Ralph Lauren and linens from Beltrami, guests will find a hotel that is striking, contemporary and nuanced, yet still a very welcome place to work or relax.
