Our family had not had downtime in over 2 years - this cottage offered us a quiet retreat from our hectic schedule. It was as described - bright, clean and comfortable. Clean being the most important aspect! We were a little disappointed by the fact a relatively new cottage has so many inoperable windows - a cool ocean breeze would have done wonders on those days when it hit 25C. My husband missed TV with only CBC being available through an antenna, but to me that was minor. The directions were slightly misleading - the cottage before it is yellow not white! But that was only an issue the first time. If we ever travel to Cape Breton again - we would definitely try to rent this cottage!
