For those who feel that life gets better when the snow gets deeper...

Welcome to Iron Mountain Wilderness Cabins - your trailside off-grid home base to snowmobiling in the Cape Breton Highlands. At 270 meters elevation our 5 heated  cabins and fully serviced main lodge are situated up where the snow lives! You can be off the highway and on the trail in no time. We are conveniently located just 35 minutes from the Canso Causeway. Our facility is 4.25 km off the TransCanada Highway 105 at 901 Whycocomagh Mountain Road.

Iron Mountain Wilderness Cabin in Winter

Groomed trails run through it

When we realized that two snowmobile trails connect on our 200 acre property, we instantly saw the potential to develop our business to specifically accommodate winter tourism.

In addition to our fully equipped cabins with premium Weber Pro Series BBQ Grills, our main lodge offers hot showers, a toasty woodstove, a wash up and water station, a licensed pub with four premium Nova Scotia craft beer on tap and a nice selection of Scotch, Vodka, Rum, Whiskey, Gin, Bourbon and Wine. Sign up for our newsletter to learn about dining, music and other special offerings we are planning.

Whether you are coming equipped to cook and relax in the privacy of your sheltered cabin, or care to join us for social gatherings in our main lodge - we invite you to enjoy the great outdoors on the mountain from our comfortable facility - and in the morning you can hit the trail right from your cabin. You can explore a lot of terrain from our central Cape Breton Island location on the 104 Cape Clear SANS snowmobile trail.

Trail Map

The Snowmobile Association of Nova Scotia has developed an interactive map, where you can find all snowmobile trails in Nova Scotia, learn about their status and find services close to the trails. We've added a few icons to our location on the image below showing the services we are planning to offer snowmobile guests this season.
