Quiet Family Retreat

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 28, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
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!
Owner's Response: Hello, the owner here. Just to say that the house next door use to be white but the owners recently changed the colour, so thanks for the heads up. I will make the changes to the directions. Also, the two windows have been repaired finally by the company, they are all under a life time warranty.

So glad you enjoyed your stay and glad you will book us again in the future. Thank you

Perfect place to relax or enjoy day trips

We really enjoyed our stay at your cottage. It’s a beautiful place, and a perfect location for day trips to discover all that Cape Breton has to offer. We are pleased that we found your cottage.

For others renting the property - tips:
The add does not promise a pool and hot tub - but they are there. If your really want it working, I would suggest working it out with the owner prior to the rental.

A Little Piece of Heaven

Spectacular sun sets, the view is beautiful. The cottage was bright, spacious and super clean. Very private and quite a spot for a family gathering. It is centrally located, close to North Sydney for shopping. During a shopping trip we decided to stop at a restaurant called Captain Ron's Restaurant; we recommend that you try it, best "home cooked" food we've tasted.

My only suggestions for improvement are:
Hot tub working
Swimming pool working
Dryer

I cannot wait for my next vacation to the Island as I would love to stay here again is was quite a treat.

Beautiful property

We arrived after a long drive from Halifax and the place was immaculate. Beautiful design and inviting rooms. Close enough to Baddeck but far enough away...

Remember to bring all staples you will need if cooking. Including salt!

Solitude

I've stayed in this lovely home, on the last week of September, 2006. It was a place not to be forgotten. It was peaceful and relaxing.

The location was central to all sorts of day trips. Across the bay was a great little restaurant/bakery where the staff was friendly, the meals were great and the price was right.

The house was clean and spacious. The view was incredible and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

The only problem we had, was that the twin beds were actually bunks. It's okay for kids, but adults would have a hard time with it.

One bedroom is a loft with a sofa and a bed. It's bright and offers a full view of the water. A 2 piece washroom is on the same floor which is really convenient when it's dark.

Four adult women were sharing and everyone of us loved it. We will go back there some day.
