Beautiful spot - quintessential Cape Breton

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time @ the cottage. Beautiful views, rustic charm and great location. Close to all sightseeing, boat tours, Baddeck and AGB Museum. Kids loved the bunks and the loft - like a tree house, also swimming was great. So lucky to be able to enjoy this gorgeous spot in Cape Breton.

Rustic cottage where you can see the generations of happy times.

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of my family stayed here for Canada Day and July 4th. If you are looking for a rustic cottage to use as a base, this is it. We explored water falls, hiking trails, saw moose and bald eagles, and went sailing.

Jan and Barb go out of their way to be good hosts. Everything you need for a wonderful stay is provided.

Idyllic setting in the center of Cape Breton

  • 5 of 5

This rustic lake front cottage - right down the same road where Alexander Graham Bell lived for many years - has a spectacular view and all the privacy you could want. It is only about a five minute drive into Baddeck, arguably the best location for touring Cape Breton. Even with a couple of short hikes and other stops in the National Park, the Cabot Trail can easily be done from Baddeck in a day, and the impressively reconstructed Fortress of Louisbourg is only an hour and a half drive. Baddeck itself has considerable charm, with a number of good and fun restaurants. A notebook in the cottage of things to do and see prepared by the owners was most helpful. For golfers the Bell Bay Golf Club was set beautifully and in great condition.

The cottage itself was very homey with family pictures and other memorabilia. The kitchen was very well equipped. We vacationed in early September, so the pot belly stove in the master was welcome and fun to use. We were three couples; however, the house could easily hold several more (especially children). All in all, a memorable vacation made even better by our stay at the Lake Cottage.

Excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

Great "homey" cabin, good central location for seeing other parts of Cape Breton, bigger than it appears, photos don't do it justice. Kids loved a small loft bedroom for playing. Some distant highway noise which may bother you if you are seeking perfect quiet outdoors. Very private. Very well stocked with everything that you may have forgotten. Owners were very helpful and attentive and caretakers were very responsive. Could easily fit two families. Two water heaters in two baths, which was nice after a few cool June days spent hiking. Easy travel distance to Mabou, hiking in Cape Breton Highlands, Ft. Louisburg, Iona, St. Anne's Gaelic College. Seems like most tourist activities (e.g., Ceilidhs) happen in July and August, but June was very nice time of year for visiting, although know that it may be challenging to keep the uninsulated house warm. Baddeck was very friendly town.

Family Reunion - A great time in Baddeck

  • 5 of 5

Our family reunion was absolutely wonderful - we loved this house on the lake with it's lovely views, well-stocked kitchen, comfy and well-furnished bedrooms, books, games, lamps everywhere for readers, nooks and crannies, ample space, and general ambiance. I would recommend it highly. The house is much bigger than it looks in the pictures.

Ideal Place

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples (close retired friends) who took the Baadeck plung into the beauty and majesty of Nova Scotia's Cape Breton. The Bras D'or Lake Waterfront Vacation Home was perfect for us. Two bathrooms! It was extreemly clean with spectacular views of the lake. Everything was there that you could possibly need in the kitchen for meals in, if you desired. Grounds and porch were great for relaxing.

This home is situated in an ideal location for launching all kinds of adventures: Fort Louisburg, hiking the Cabot Trail, shopping for great Nova Scotia art, local theather, and just excursions to see the beautiful landscapes of the Cape. Good places to eat abound. Great seafood.

We would go back in a heartbeat!
