          Like coming home

          5 of 5
          Immediately on arriving, my friend and I felt right at home. We avoided a B&B as did not want to feel like we were someone's visitors or limited to where we could wander. Like Goldilocks, we came in and tried out all the beds, choosing the beds according to our preferences. There was a firm bed, soft bed and medium bed. Most times we sat like families do at the kitchen table, other times upstairs in the sitting area looking out the picture window at the mountains. No sooner had we settled in than A moose came up to the edge of the yard to graze on something delectable. A resident chipmunk came up on the porch in the mornings for breakfast. We were charmed. The cut logs and kindling were welcomed on one evening that turned cool after we had gotten wet on a hike. Maggie's felt like coming home. Uli is full of information and stories. His enthusiasm for the house and area are infectious. We were glad to meet his family and share a wonderful morning. There were so many special touches like fresh flowers in the house.The people in the area are friendly, inviting and happy to answer questions. I was warned a week would not be enough time, and it wasn't. A few details: we had a good supply of dishes, pans , cups etc that we needed and baked several meals on the gas stove. Even herbs were provided. We appreciated the handmade soaps, laundry soap, dishwasher soap, Kleenex and toilet paper that kept us from having to haul a lot from the grocery store. The local water has a high mineral content. But Uli and Cathy provide the gallon jugs of bottled water. The coffee pot makes good coffee! It is an older home with its own creaks, but part of what makes it feel like a home. Uli really wanted us to find something to suggest they do to improve the experience, but we didn't need or want anything different. We did suggest a more complete list of things provided in the house like the laundry soap, But if you have a question just email them. Enjoy the natural wonders found here. Don't be so busy going to all the sites on the map to miss the beauty right here at Maggie's.

          Outstanding Cottage in Beautiful Location

          5 of 5
          I have found that 5 stars are too often given so that the rating starts to lose its meaning. This truly is a 5 star property. It is beautifully designed and built with pine- planked inside walls that lend such charm and interest. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, a rarity and yet so helpful with a larger family or couples traveling together. There's plenty of space for privacy and also for interaction. The furniture is very nice and actually comfortable...as is the King bed (didn't try the others.) We ate all breakfasts and dinners there so really appreciated the high-end appliances (especially the Jenn-Aire duel fuel stove/oven) and the gas grill. And then there's the magnificent view from the house, from the porch, and from the firepit with chairs area right by the water. And the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep. And then there's the porch. since the photos on this site were taken, beautiful, high quality couch, chairs and tables are now present...we practically lived on that porch. This truly is one listing that is even better then its photos and write-up. As for the practical matters, Tonia was so easy to work with and very responsive. She provides lots of information about what to do, best places to eat, shop, etc. ahead of time and kindly and quickly answered some additional questions we thought of. The house was immaculate and the linens were of excellent quality. Nothing was missing. And our refundable security deposit check was waiting for us when we got home.

          Very nice house with a great view

          5 of 5
          My wife and I enjoyed the house for a week in July 2014. House is clean and the view is very nice. The caretaker and his wife were very helpful. House includes everything you need for the stay. Cape Breton was beautiful. Be prepared for a lot of driving to sites and activities. The only negatives about the house were the driveway is very rough gravel. Make sure you have a car that is high off the ground. In addition, the beach is right there by the house but difficult to access. There is a very steep drop off and you need to walk through tall grass to get there. Overall loved the house and would stay again.
