It has been MANY years since we were here but I have such fond memories. We loved having breakfast with Pat & her husband. My husband enjoyed the fishing. I'm sorry to hear Pat is retired but I'm sure retirement is well deserved. I remember...More

Every year we are rewarded with a beautiful visit to Margaree. This year we revisited The Trout Farm. We were rewarded with all the beauty this place holds. The cottage tucked away, hidden from the sounds of traffic. Always welcomed by the homey touches and...More

The hosts were friendly and our kids enjoyed their time fishing but overall we felt taken in. The accommodations were dated, decorated with a cornucopia of person effects such that it felt like staying as house guests of the owners. There was a musty smell...More

Oh, Cindy. We are so sorry to read this.....although, to be honest, we are really not terribly surprised to see this review since, with the amount of furniture and other things that, after you left, we found you had moved around in the Guest House,...More

Map
About the neighbourhood
Margaree Forks is where the N.E. and the S.W. Margaree join to flow into the Gulf of St. Lawwrence, 16 km to the north. The NE Margaree is a world famous Salmon fishing river and fly fishermen congregate there through the summer and fall in an attempt to catch this King of Fishes.
The Valley itself is an attraction with farms and fields nestling between the mountains at the edge of the Highlands.
There are four ocean beaches within a short drive of the farm as well as numerous swimming holes along the river.
For the duffers, Cabot Links and Cabot Trail are within 25 kms, La Portage is only 40 km away in Cheticamp and Bell bay, (Baddeck), is about 50 km.
The Margaree is an excellent base for day tripping all the Island attractions!
Getting around

We normally send a map and directions to people that rent. GPS works well on the main roads but be CAREFUL, (very!), if you are directed on a gravel one. Cell service is iffy in Inverness County. We do NOT have cell service at farm, although have Internet).
