Neil’s Harbour Cottage on 1.5 Acres of Private Oceanfront Property - Spectacular Views!
Enjoy amazing views, roaring waves, wildlife sightings, and shooting stars while you stay at this lovely, meticulously maintained cottage on over an acre of private oceanfront property. From the cottage, walk the short path lined by windswept grasses and wild flowers to the stunning water’s edge. Marvel at panoramic views of the rocky Atlantic shoreline from the upper deck.
From the master bedroom deck, listen to the waves, spot whales, eagles, gannets, and seals. The beautiful master bedroom includes a futon and a half-bath and is located on the second floor. On the first floor, enjoy the spacious and bright eat-in kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with a large table and new appliances. The lower deck is equipped with a gas grill and overlooks a beautiful lawn and the natural landscape of the shoreline.
Relax in the living room in front of the large screen TV while viewing the ocean through the sliding glass doors. The spacious living room features a full Simmon’s pull out sofa bed and a gas fireplace. The front bedroom includes a comfortable day bed with detachable twin trundle bed that reaches full bed height and can be rolled away from the day bed. Full bath and laundry room are also located on the first floor. We have also added high-speed internet.
In the distance, view the light house and quaint working fishing village of Neil’s Harbour. You will appreciate the convenience of the short walk to the grocery store. The restaurant, hospital, and post office are all located within two miles. The Cottage by the Mighty Blue is on the east coast of Cape Breton Island and only minutes off of the Cabot trail’s beautiful hiking and vistas.

I am the owner of the property you are interested in. I can't figure out why there aren't more comments posted on this site. We have a guest book on the property and it is filled cover to cover with glowing comments. Maybe that's all the guests think they should do or maybe they have had trouble getting on the site. I have had some problems with this myself. I hope you will stay with us. I'm sure you will have a great time. And while you are there take a look at the guest book.
The Mighty Blue has everything you need to make your stay comfortable plus, it was spotless. The trees surrounding it make it private and cozy. There is a grocery store within walking distance for supplies. We were fortunate to have stayed there 11 days in July. The view of the sparkling blue seas and listening to the ocean crash on the rocks is priceless. Satellite TV, wifi, dvd, fireplace, barbecue grill and more. Kathy was a valuable source for activities, restaurants, and points of interest. I can't recommend it enough. It will make your vacation unforgettable too.
The house was very well located and we liked that we had our own privacy in the back yard and as close as next door to the coop for the grocery. The cottage is not far away to different trails.We even spent an afternoon at the beach in Neil's Harbour. I would recommend the cottage because with the kitchen that had different pots and plates we could cook everything.Thanks to Ron and Kathy for the feedbacks and concerns that we had before arriving at the cottage.The restaurant and the ice cream parlor is a most in Neil's Harbour.
I don't know why there aren't more reviews of this place as it is wonderful. We stayed in August 2013. It would have been perfect for a week, but unfortunately we could only have it for 4 days. The house is very private and quiet, you can see and hear the ocean from every window in the back of the house. Ventilation is great so the house was never hot. The ocean waves will lull you to sleep at night, and watching the stars from the upstairs balcony was magical.
Everything is spotlessly clean, the kitchen is very well stocked with everything that might be needed. Best for us was the washer and dryer as this was a mid way stopover on a two week stay.
Neil's Harbor well situated for a stay along the Cabot trail. It's an easy drive to Ingonish - the beaches and hiking in the park. White Point is not to be missed and it's an easy hike. Have ice cream at the Neil's Harbor light house, and snow crab at the Chowder House.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
Another great review...
We were delighted to find such a wonderfully well-maintained and private home for us to stay during the first few days of our honeymoon.
We would go back in heartbeat.
What can we say? Beautiful views, comfortable, clean, and well equipped! Private and yet next to grocery and amenities. We loved it! Great location from which to explore Cape Breton. Darryl and Kathy were friendly, accessible, and helpful.
I just came back from a week-long family vacation in Neil's Harbour where I stayed at the Mighty Blue Cottage. We all had a wonderful time.
The cottage is clean, comfortable and very well-equiped. It has everything one needs, from barbecue to binoculars to watch the ocean! It is both central (a few steps from the co-op and the harbour, with its restaurants and even a whale watching cruise tour) and private, which was very important to us since we went there to take a break from the noise of the city. The cottage is right in front of the ocean: incredible view and sunsets!
It is perfectly located, which allowed us to fully visit Cape Breton Island, from Ingonish to Cheticamp and of course, the national park.
Kathy and Darryl are very nice and helpful. Always available for us.
I highly recommend it, especially for family gatherings or romantic gateways! And I will definitely come back.
