Overview

Ingonish Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4

If you are looking for something off the beaten path, you have found it! Out at the northern tip of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, the cottage is located at St. Margaret's village, in Bay St. Lawrence. From the 8x28 foot front deck you have a panoramic, unobstructed, undeveloped view as the sun sets into the ocean. In season, you can enjoy the local lobster or snow crab caught in the bay in front of you.

Not far off the Cabot Trail, the cottage is a good base for golf at Highland Links in Ingonish (one of the top-rated courses in the world), whale watching or deep sea fishing from the nearby fisherman's wharf or the Hike the Highlands Festival. Cape Breton Highlands National Park is just 10 miles away where there are hiking trails and other activities in the summer. Our family spots at least one moose and one bear at this park every year! It is a thrill for the kids!

Right in the village is a friendly community center with internet access (as well as ping pong for the kids and a basketball hoop). There is a local grocery with all the basics. Right near the community center is an ice cream stand that is great for a quick dinner as well.

It is a birdwatchers paradise. Watch the eagles soar, the guillemots fly in and out of the cliffs below, or the gannets dive into the ocean from the cottage. You might even see the occasional pod of whales in the bay while you sit relaxing or reading on the deck.

See the links at the bottom of this page for more tourist information on Cape Breton.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A very comfortable cottage, well equipped and beautifully situated beside the ocean (and closer to the sea than is apparent from the photo). A wonderful place both to relax and to enjoy the mix of easy and more challenging walks in the vicinity; and the weather was warmer and drier here than in England! Very grateful to the most helpful owner, prompt and obliging in every respect.

Beautiful setting!!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The mountains, ocean, sunrises, and sunsets...breathtaking as the light changed throughout the day!!! We would absolutely consider staying again-

Couple of suggestions: not sure how often the housekeeper comes by, but we had to do some vacuuming upon arrival. We had to clean out the vacuum cleaner as well. It was clogged with debris.

We stayed at the end of the summer season so many things were closed or closing up while we were there including dining options like The Hut. We picked up food at a co-op but the frig was too small and did not have a freezer option for meat. Meal planning and access became a little bit of a challenge.

These circumstances were not huge impacts on our stay but might be helpful for future renters.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful cottage and extraordinary surroundings! We made awesome memories!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! We truly apologize for any vacuuming issues - that's highly unusual, as we have housekeeping done right before every renter arrives. And the refrigerator does have a small freezer at the top, contained within the fridge. It is a small, under-counter unit, but we find it suits our needs for a week's stay.

Wonderful retreat in a unique part of Cape Breton!

  • 5 of 5
Bay St. Lawrence is a bit off the Cabot Trail and a worthwhile detour... all of Cape North is spectacular - beaches, vistas, whale-watching, a reprieve from the bugs, beautiful sunsets. The cottage was better than we expected - quite spacious, adequately appointed, clean and comfortable. But the inside pales in comparison to the exterior -- this cabin has THE BEST view in BSL. The entire bay is at your feet. We saw pods of pilot whales from the deck (with the cabin binoculars)! Surrounded by wild blueberries and wild flowers. There's no wifi, or cable, but you'll never be bored - it's a true getaway. Easy access to the co-op grocery/liquor store, the Hut is down the road for hotdogs, and the docks are nearby for crab and lobster in the summer. There is no laundry at the cabin (or the local community center), so pack for your stay or be prepared to travel farther. Our favorite beach was Cabot Landing. And Meat Cove is not to be missed.

We stayed a week and loved every minute. The house is small but well-appointed. We loved the deck and just starring at the ocean. We biked to Meat Cove, to Cape North and Dingwall, hiked to St. Lawrence lighthouse out of Meat Cove, hiked the Coastal trail, Skyline trail, and Whites point, saw about 100 whales (no exaggeration), seals, and took some fish home to cook/eat with Oshan, intended to kayak at Meat Cove but it was too windy ($15 hr + $5/hr after first). Can't beat fresh crab for $3/lb. We did all that "relaxing" and then left a week later and cycled the 300 kilometers around the Cabot Trail.

Cape Breton - Bay St Lawrence Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful location where you have the whole spectacular view to yourself. Cozy, comfortable and secure cottage situated on owners unique private land lot that is away from it all, it is truly a great getaway. Most Cape Breton highlights within 30 min to 1 hour drive away and nearby restaurants and groceries make this an ideal location. Bay St. Lawrence whale watching boats just 2 minutes away. Having morning coffee on the deck to start the day was spectacular. Weather was perfect!

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
My family thoroughly enjoyed staying at this cottage. It is very quiet with beautiful, scenic views of the mountains and ocean. Lots of wildflowers and birds everywhere. You can take a short walk into the village and buy fresh seafood from the fishermen and even take a whale watching tour. The cottage is located about 20 minutes off of the Cabot Trail which offers more scenic views and many hiking trails with wildlife. There is also a park with a nice beach just 10 minutes away. The owners are very helpful with any information/recommendations you might need about the area. Every night we ate dinner out on the deck and watched the sunset over the water. It really truly was getting away from it all.
