Live in the sky among the treetops in our beautiful apple Orchard. We call it Treetop Village. You will call it amazing. Each dome rests on an elevated deck that gives you a view of the water and Kelly's Mountain. We have the LunaDome and the larger Apple Dome, which is new for 2016. Book one now while there is still some availability.
A geodesic dream getaway. The first and only of its kind in Cape Breton. It’s glamping at its best. Close to showers and washrooms. And, of course, a fabulous view to the ocean.
