For those who enjoy the great outdoors

Stay at Iron Mountain Wilderness Cabins

Centrally located in the southern highlands of Cape Breton Island, half way between Inverness and Baddeck, we are 30 minutes from the Causeway, just 5km from the TransCanada Highway, and yet, we're a world apart up here on the mountainside!

Unplug, relax, reconnect. Jena'si. 

Settle in for a rejuvenating evening in the woods, nestled on the top of an ancient mountain. You will be surrounded by the woods and wildlife, restored by the fresh mountain air, and free to enjoy an evening out here in the great outdoors.  Our cabins are ideal for people who enjoy camping out - on your own, or with friends and family.


The Iron Mountain Wilderness Cabins are our own custom designed steel cabins with an integrated porch. We had them prefabricated for us here in Nova Scotia from 60% recycled steel. We are proud of our unique steel cabins. They have been built to serve our guests for a long time to come in all four seasons and to withstand our mountain environment while being comfortable, practical and cozy to spend time and rest in.

All of the 4 mattresses are encased in 2 layers of breathable, waterproof, protective coverings. Simply cover with your favourite sleeping bag and linens. We thank you in advance for covering the beds with your own bedding as soon as you arrive to help reduce wear and tear to the protective covers.
