Though the setting is tranquil, the activities are always on at Dundee Resort & Golf Club on Cape Breton in Louisdale, Nova Scotia.
“We have an active recreation department that offers many water sports for our guests to explore the serene lake our property sits on: kayaking, canoeing, pedal boating, stand-up paddle boarding—you name it,” says Krista Luddington, a marketing consultant for the property. “Our golf is a main attraction due to the breathtaking backdrop that is the panoramic view of the Bras D’or Lakes from nearly every hole, and the course being carved into the richly forested South Mountain. It really is second to none.”
The resort is also alive with new projects. The guest rooms, dining room, and pub are undergoing renovations; new golf carts have been added; the guest laundry area and cottages have been updated; and a state-of-the-art pavilion was recently built to accommodate weddings, conferences, and other special events.
Guests can also enjoy the indoor and outdoor pools, lawn games, and bonfires during their stay.
“We believe in delivering the full Cape Breton experience—from our Maritime hospitality and delicious East Coast menu full of tasty Nova Scotia dishes to offering live music on-site three nights a week,” Luddington says.
Those events include the popular Wing Night, held in the clubhouse on Wednesday nights, as well as two themed nights in Chanter’s Pub. The resort is an industry partner with two Cape Breton music festivals—Kitchenfest! and Celtic Colours International Festival—and is home to the annual Folk Music Festival.
