Embraced by 200 verdant acres and the Bras d'Or Lakes, Castle Moffett on Cape Breton Island is a regal retreat for a castle wedding or honeymoon hideaway.

What special touches does Castle Moffett provide for the bride and groom on their wedding day?

What local elements can a bride add to her wedding at Castle Moffett to give the ceremony a regional flavor?

Since Castle Moffett is located at the beginning of the Highlands of Cape Breton, a lot of couples request a Highland Piper, Harpist, or Fiddler for their wedding. Others also wear their clan tartans.

What sites on the property are available for wedding ceremonies?

Castle Moffett offers couples our Great Hall with a long staircase from the upstairs for the Bride to descend to her awaiting Groom and a Grand Piano for the ceremonial music. Other couples choose to be married outside by our fountained pond.

One way for the bridal party to relax before the wedding day is with a trip to Castle Moffett's spa. What should guests expect from a day of pampering at your spa facilities?

Castle Moffett offers a very relaxing massage and sauna as well as fitness facilities.

Castle Moffett also offers cooking lessons from an internationally-renowned chef. What can guests expect from one of the cooking school's culinary classes?

Upon completing a cooking lesson, each person will be able to prepare and beautifully plate a four-course meal from the school menus, including the use of fresh flowers and herbs, for their next dinner party.

What nearby activities or attractions can you recommend to your guests who would like to take a romantic day trip?
