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

Welcome to Iron Mountain Wilderness Cabins - a comfortable, trailside, off-grid, home base for snowmobiling in Cape Breton. At 270 meters elevation our 5 heated camping cabins and fully serviced main lodge are situated up where the snow lives ~ in the Cape Breton's highlands! Less than 5km off the TransCanada Highway 105, we are trailside on the 104 Cape Clear SANS groomed snowmobile trail. We are centrally located, just 35 minutes from the Canso Causeway at 901 Whycocomagh Mountain Road, Whycocomagh, Nova Scotia.

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 snowmobilers, ATVs and other outdoor adventure.

In addition to our comfortable heated cabins, each with Weber Pro Series BBQ Grills, firepits and picnic tables, guests have access to Iron Mountain Lodge for hot showers, a wash up and water station, and Canada's 1st off-grid licensed pub with four premium Nova Scotia craft beer on tap and a nice selection of Scotch, Vodka, Rum, Whiskey, Gin, Bourbon and Wine. We also sell organic french press Laughing Whale coffee, organic tea, soft drinks and snacks. Snowhoes are available for rent as well.

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.
