Campers Ocean Experience
Murphys Camping on the Ocean in Murphys Cove has a number of new packages for 2013, including a 'gather your own mussels' and mussel boil with overnight, and an 'island drop-off' for the adventurous.

Marquis of Dufferin Seaside Inn
A tradition in the Bay of Islands region, the Marquis of Dufferin offers spectacular views of Beaver Harbour from its deck! Friendly Eastern Shore hospitality and and "park at your door" CAA/AAA approved accommodations. Just east of Sheet Harbour in Port Dufferin.

Guysborough's 'Authentic Seacoast' group of companies has transformed this delightful coastal town on the way to Cape Breton. If it's the comfort of a resort you seek, enjoy a relaxed stay at Desbarres Manor, take in a few rounds of golf the Osprey Shores Golf Resort, hike the trails, kayak, canoe, sun and swim (ocean or poolside), shop at the Skipping Stone Crafts and Gallery, then unwind at the Rare Bird Pub. Not all under one roof, but within a stone's throw of each other.
