#1 island in Canada

Updated: Jul 15, 2020

Come see for yourself!

Cape Breton has been voted #1 island in Canada for the third year by Travel + Leisure Magazine.

Explore the trails, lounge at the beaches, and experience Cape Breton hospitality!

As some of you may know, my husband is from the island, but I am not. My first trip to Cape Breton was back in 2008 and from the first welcoming hug, the first kind smile and the first invite to a kitchen party, I knew I was home. This place has a way of stealing your heart and convincing you this is where you truly belong.

I want each person that visits us at Riverside Retreat to feel welcome and at home. I want you to find out why they say "your heart will never leave". I want you to start planning your next trip back before you even leave.

My hope that Riverside Retreat will be in your travel plans every time you visit Cape Breton.

Check out and find your next adventure! Be sure to book your stay with us the next time you come to visit. See you soon!
