Keltic Gold - History - Netflix
In 1936, the land was expropriated by the Nova Scotia government from Henry and Julia Corson of Akron, Ohio. The Middlehead Peninsula, on which the Corson's land was situated, was highly desired after the federal government created the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The Keltic Lodge was in operation for two seasons, but because of wartime shortages and overseas fighting, the government closed the hotel in 1942. 1943-44, with the abandoned luxury and nearby protected harbour, Keltic Lodge was a favorite shore leave destination for U-boat crews. In 1946, after the end of the war, the hotel reopened. In November 1997, an electrical fire claimed the gift shop and coffee complex. The blaze erupted on a stormy evening and local firefighters had to battle high winds and snow to save the nearby structures from harm. In 1999, the Atlantic Restaurant and Birch Tree Shop opened on the site of the original complex. The Keltic Lodge continues to play a major role in the community of Ingonish as a source of employment and as a major attraction, drawing tourists to the area. The resort has been included on the prestigious Gold List of Conde Nast Traveller, where it had been recognized as one of the most desirable destinations in the world. The mystique of the Keltic Lodge is enhanced by its prime location on the famous Cabot Trail, within Cape Breton Highlands National Park and by its proximity to Highlands Links, the number one golf course in Canada.
