BETA - Welcome to Ridge on the Chimney

A place for visitors, a pace for locals.

On the west coast of Cape Breton island, set in a quiet cove nestled between the famous Margaree river and Inverness, sits Chimney Corner Beach. The sandy shores and calm waters of the beach are only 5 minutes off the Cabot Trail.

Atop the cliffside of the beach is Ridge on the Chimney; our newest destination where you can enjoy the area to the fullest. Thoughtfully designed luxury accommodations reflecting the vernacular of Cape Breton.

With the only private walkway down to the beach, Ridge on the Chimney's exclusive location is sure to provide you with one of the most unique experiences on the island.

Grounded in Place, Partnerships, and Purpose

The location and the experiences are designed with authenticity and simplicity at the core, representing the Place in which we are.

Our Partnerships are with local artisans and much as possible, using regional and handcrafted product before mass manufactured products and services. We are proud of our partners and the work we do with them. 

Underpinned by Purpose. We give back to the community and to the planet. Our property is in the consideration phase for use as carbon credits, and we are currently contributors to 1% for the Planet.
