Welcome to Sally’s Brook Wilderness Cabins!

Sally’s Brook is located in Unama’ki, within the unceded ancestral territory of the Mikmaq.

Sally’s Brook is an Eco-friendly property in the heart of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada. We have three wilderness cabins currently available for rent. We opened in fall 2020 and are excited to be in operation for many years ahead.

The rugged natural landscape with off-grid luxury amenities is a perfect spot for a group retreat, family reunion, vacation getaway, or the start or end of your trip around the Cabot Trail.

Our accommodations are nestled in the trees overlooking St. Ann’s Bay and the mountains of the Highlands, about 5 minutes walk up a forest path from the parking area.

Davey and Sky, local influencers in Nova Scotia, made a video about their stay!

Hear what some of our guests have to say:

Stayed one night in the Raven’s Roost cabin in January , great place, very clean and easy to heat with the wood stove. The cook house is well organized with everything you could need, washrooms with showers are great too. Also beautiful view from the cabin, we would definitely stay there again.

WOW this is an incredible addition Cape Breton!! My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights in Hummingbird pod with our 2 dogs and every morning we woke up and said “wow, we are SO lucky we get to be here”. It was very cozy inside, and there was enough room for all of us. The pod was very clean, as was the bathroom and cookhouse. The views are spectacular, and the trail down to the brook was magical. You can tell that thought and care was put into every part of the construction and guest experience. This is exactly the type of place we seek out and was totally up our ally. It is a unique stay, and definitely not for everyone, but if you are looking for an eco-conscious stay that’s a little offgrid, this is perfect. Note that the trail up to the pods and cabin is a little steep, which would make it difficult to access if you are not able bodied. Also, the bathroom is about 300m from the pod. Overall I would highly recommend Sally’s Brook Cabins!


Everything about this place is spectacular. We had the place to ourselves and really got a chance to experience what this place had to offer. It’s a 5 minute incline hike but the views are definitely worth every huff and puff to get there. Lisa was very helpful taking out luggage and cooler up to the cabin on her side by side, and also at check out to help bring out back down… We stayed in the Ravens Roost cabin which is the biggest cabin and loved every minute of it. The spectacular views in the fall was the best part. The wood burning stove was very easy to use and it took no time to heat up the cabin if needed. It also makes for a romantic night playing cards with the one you love, or just snuggling to watch the flames… This place is great for groups, family gatherings, couples as long as you don’t mind sharing the facilities with the others. We are frequent travelers and absolutely loved these luxury cabins in the wilderness and recommend to anyone that is looking for a unique place to disconnect from it all.
