“Peace, quiet and fun in beautiful Cape Breton”

I spent a long weekend at Old Miller Trout Farm this spring. My hosts, Pat and John, were charming, knowledgeable and very helpful. They are well versed in “what to do in Cape Breton” and when to do it! And they love to chat.

The guest cottage is very well equipped, spacious comfortable and clean. The trout interested me the most when I was not relaxing or discovering Cape Breton, because Old Miller is an active fish farm. When you walk the ponds with John at feeding time you can watch the water simply come alive. Even in between, those trout are happy to see a human who might be ready to feed them. Then there are the delighted faces of the fishers who stop. One eleven-year-old boy raced past me letting me know he caught a big one, but, oops, it got away.

The trails are lovely too. I especially enjoyed the high trail at sunset. There’s a view of the Margaree hills. Very beautiful. All I all, I highly recommend Old Miller Trout Farm as a Cape Breton destination.

“Perfect Cape Breton Cottage”
Reviewed 12 August 2013 for a stay in June 2013

person found this review helpful

If you want a perfect place to stay while visiting Cape Breton - Old Miller Trout Farm is the place to stay. The location is not too far from the Cabot Trail and Margaree Forks, where there is everything you need in a small town. Guests stay in a converted barn - which were perfect accommodations – comfortable, spotlessly clean, and fully equipped. We took advantage of the fact that this is a trout farm - having great success fishing and then enjoying barbequed trout for dinner. There is a short hiking trail on their property, where you can take in the breathtaking view of the farm and Cape Breton. In the evenings we sat on the balcony of the barn, enjoying a glass of wine, listening to the bull frog and the quiet, simply basking in the peacefulness.

Pat and John are wonderful hosts! Gracious and very generous - lovely people to get to know. They are very knowledgeable about Cape Breton, recommending many wonderful little gems to visit.

The 4 days we spent at the Old Miller Trout Farm have left us with memories that we will have forever.

“In touch with nature”
Reviewed 20 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

The first thing you notice as you arrive are the sounds and feel of nature. The hosts were welcoming, as if we were family arriving for a visit. The place was very clean and comfortable, with a fully equipped kitchen. It shows that the hosts, Pat and John have paid a lot of attention to small details to make the guests' say homelike. I recommend this place to anyone wanting to get away from the "fast life" and get back in touch with nature. Cap Breton is a picturesque place, a must see.

We spent one week at the Old Miller Trout Farm and Pat and John were amazing, warm and lovely hosts. Our kids adopted them as on-site grandparents, and they were generous with their time, advice, and home. The rental was spacious, private and had everything one would need. The location was great both for staying put relaxing and fishing as well as for exploring Cape Breton. Quick drives to some of the beautiful beaches nearby, live music, and the Cabot trail.
