A Very Special Cape Breton Home

5 of 5
Maggie’s is a charming and historical farmhouse located on the Cabot Trail near Cape Breton Highlands National Park. On arrival we were made to feel very comfortable and welcome by Uli and Cathy, quickly noting the warmth, cleanliness, and rustic beauty of the house and area. We particularly liked the wood-burning fireplace in the kitchen which heated the whole house and produced a cosy feeling throughout. But Maggie’s is also equipped with modern conveniences such as fast WiFi, a washer and dryer, a dishwasher, and a coffee-maker. Throughout the house are books and magazines with both current and historical information about Maggie’s and the local area, not to mention period photographs on some of the walls. It is obvious that much care, good taste, and love were given to produce a special place for visitors to Cape Breton, a home away from home. We arrived at Maggie’s in mid-October during the highly popular Celtic Colours festival amidst brilliant autumn foliage and unseasonably warm temperatures, ideal for hiking as well as exploring the Cabot Trail. On a rare rainy afternoon, we drove to Baddeck and visited the Alexander Graham Bell museum which is highly recommended. Uli took us for a walk to a nearby beach area known as the gill with his friendly dog Tomo, and also provided information about other local walks/hikes from Maggie’s and along the Cabot Trail. Both he and Cathy are very knowledgeable about the area and obviously enjoy sharing information when asked. The local seafood was delicious, especially lobster rolls and various types of seafood chowder. It was late in the season, but we managed to have chowder at Neil’s Chowder House at Neil’s Harbour on the last day it was open. It was so good we bought two more portions to take away for another meal. Otherwise, there are grocery stores in Baddeck and Ingonish providing everything needed for home cooking. We are already looking forward to returning to Maggie’s and Cape Breton in future and are very appreciative of the helpfulness and generosity provided by Cathy and Uli.

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.
