Top Answers To Nova Scotia Travel Questions
Answer this2 AnswersBeing from Nova Scotia I would recommend summer or fall. Weather is really unpredictable year round but much more likely to hit good weather in summer or fall. It is beautiful any time of year but its at its best at these 2 times. July is also usually better than August. In recent years though with global warming temps are all over the board. You won't find a prettier place or nicer people with the possible exception of PEI.
Alistair answered:The Nova Scotia tourism website has a nifty tool that allows you to search for accommodation in regions including Cape Breton based on trip timing and whether properties are pet-friendly. Here's a link: http://www.novascotia.com/en/home/accommodations/default.aspx. From a quick search, I can see that Wreck Cove's Wilderness Cabins or the Margaree Harbour View Inn B&B are open year-round and welcome pets. You should probably call the property just to confirm details about their pet policy, as there may be extra fees involved. Have a great trip. Have just added Cape Breton to my bucket list after having researched this answer, so thanks!
