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.

Our commitment to sustainability

Our commitment to 1% for the Planet underscores our dedication to environmental stewardship and sustainability. By pledging to donate at least 1% of our annual revenue to environmental causes, we are taking tangible steps to support organizations that work tirelessly to protect and preserve our planet. This commitment is crucial because it allows us to actively contribute to the conservation of natural resources, the preservation of biodiversity, and the mitigation of climate change impacts. By investing in initiatives focused on sustainability, reforestation, clean water, and renewable energy, we are not only reducing our ecological footprint but also fostering a healthier and more resilient planet for future generations. Through our partnership with 1% for the Planet, we are proud to be part of a global network of businesses committed to making a positive difference in the world.
