Capestone Cottage is Cape Breton’s Home-away-from-Home! This beautiful traditional-style house with a partial wrap around veranda features panoramic views of the Bras d’Or Lakes.

While staying here, guests can relax in quiet comfort and enjoy the pristine beauty and peaceful atmosphere. We are located in the heart of Cape Breton as we are just minutes from the town of Baddeck, which is the beginning and end of the infamous Cabot Trail.

Accommodations close to Baddeck are not just convenient for local activities such as golfing, fishing, hiking, sailboat tours and attending ceilidhs, but also for exploring the entire nearby area.

Situated on the St. Patrick’s Channel, this waterfront property neighbors Castle Moffett and is the prime getaway, central to all the fun and adventure that awaits you on the island.

Capestone offers comfy accommodations and is available for minimum 1 week rentals. As the calendar fills up, there may be some weeks where 7 nights are not available. If this happens to be the case, it will be open to partial week rentals with minimum 4 nights stays. Please note that partial weeks are only offered if cleaner is available.

This 3-bedroom cottage sleeps 6 comfortably, but can provide lodging for up to 8 people if required. It has a one 4-piece bath and one 3-piece bath, laundry facilities, living room, dining room, fully equipped kitchen with propane stove top, wall oven, microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker, barbecue, patio set and covered veranda with deck chairs.

About Sheri & Scott MacPhee

My husband grew up in Baddeck so we travel to Cape Breton every year to visit with family and friends. We currently live in Alberta and recently had a child in May 2012, so this property will be used more and more as we travel to the east coast with our son!

Sheri & Scott MacPhee purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Sheri & Scott MacPhee chose Bras D'or Lake

We decided to purchase this vacation home in Bucklaw since it is just minutes from Baddeck and we absolutely love the location! It is so close to amenities and the scenery is breathtaking!

What makes this cottage unique

The spectacular views overlook the Bras d'Or Lake and since our property reaches right down to the water's edge, we have a private road to access our very own pebble beach!

Celtic colors with friends in a glorious setting!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location and very well equipped house. Lovely grounds going down to the lake. Close to Baddeck and close to the highway for access but not too noisy. Perfect for family or friends....very comfortable beds and a lovely bright sitting room. We had a great time!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback regarding your stay for Celtic colors! We are happy to hear you were comfortable in our cottage and enjoyed your time in Cape Breton during the fall season! It is definitely a perfect location for the festival, as you can drive in either direction to take in the festivities going on around the island! Hope to have you back again in the near future! :)

We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at Capestone. We were delighted to see the welcome basket full of goodies awaiting us along with other treats and surprises. The cottage was beautiful with a lovely view of the lake. The roomy kitchen was well equipped and the washer and dryer was an added bonus to us travelers. Every room was tastefully decorated. The location was perfect for sightseeing around Cape Breton and we enjoyed the privacy of the cottage. There were many good restaurants and shops close by to enjoy. I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking a few minutes to write a review of your stay! It's great to hear you had a wonderful time and enjoyed all the amenities! Definitely beats staying in a small hotel room with little to no space to move around! Thank you for your comments about the decorating as well... We want our guests to feel right at home in a modern setting, rather than feeling outdated and old. Although this cottage was built many years ago, it has been renovated and has some character still left in it! We hope to have you visit us again some day and wish you all the best with your future travels!

A Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Entering Capestone cottage was like being right at home. Spacious and comfortable, clean, a personal welcome basket and a beautiful view. We found this to be a perfect area as our home base to do our sightseeing. I have and will recommend to friends that this is the place to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments! We are happy to hear that you enjoyed yourselves at the cottage and felt comfortable in your home away from home! It's nice to know that you took advantage of our location and got to see a lot, as we are set up in a very central part of the island allowing you to travel and explore in all directions! Glad you had a wonderful family getaway and would love to have you come back again...

Peaceful and charming!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I stayed at the Capestone Cottage with friends (8 in total) and our stay was fantastic! Apart from being a very well maintained cottage and well located, the view is absolutely beautiful! We enjoyed swimming and having a fire by the beach. The owners are amazing and we highly recommend staying at the Capestone Cottage :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We loved having you at the Capestone and were glad you had a fun time! It is definitely a great spot and even better having the privacy of your own beach for swimming and spending relaxing evenings by the fire. The smoke and heat sure help too to keep the bugs away! Thanks for recommending us to future travellers... We know that people like to get feedback from other guests, so your comments about your experience will help them with their travel plans!

Recommend: lovely home, good for kids, gracious hosts; a bit far from Baddeck and water, no wireless

  • 4 of 5

We recommend this home and the hosts without a doubt. It's important to note that there is no wireless internet, which was limiting because we wanted to research activities. That said, the hosts did a great job providing activity recommendations. In fact, they were professional from beginning to end and went out of their way to make the stay cozy. It felt like a B&B, but we had privacy. The view is lovely, but it's a long walk to the lake and then there isn't much of a beach - it was also really buggy when were there in the summer. Otherwise,the kitchen, baths, shared spaces and bedrooms were all in great condition. The hosts made it really easy to travel with our toddler since they had a toddler themselves. It's a good 20 minute drive to Baddeck, which is the closest place to find any amenities...which is no big deal, but just be sure you know you'll be driving.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review... We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and felt taken care of! We apologize for not offering free wifi as we know a lot of travellers appreciate that in this day and age. We are located though where you can get signal for the use of the internet, but it is not free wifi. There are many places in Baddeck such as the Tourist Info Center, library or various cafe's that do offer free wifi for your convenience. Also, it is true that we are about 15-20 minutes in either direction to Whycocomagh or Baddeck for groceries, etc. so you will need to drive to town. We are not within walking distance to a town's vicinity, so people need to plan ahead. We also have a long path to the pebble beach (about 10 minute walk), but if you prefer you can drive your vehicle down the road as well! It's great to hear your overall stay with your toddler was pleasant and we hope to have you back again some day! :)

Our stay at Capestone Cottage

  • 4 of 5

My family and I recently enjoyed a lovely vacation at Capestone Cottage. The home is very spacious and immaculate. The owners go out of their way to ensure the house is equipped to meet the needs of their guests.

The beach is a bit of a walk but the water is clear with nice sand.

The owners were very professional and quick to respond. We only had positive experiences and would recommend Capestone Cottage to anyone looking for a quiet location with a breathtaking view.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your post... We appreciate your feedback and are glad to hear your trip went well! As most guests know, we are situated on a channel of the Bras d'Or Lakes, which is a body of salt water that feeds into the Atlantic Ocean. So you will find all sorts of sea life, such as jellyfish, crabs, shells, etc. The water levels do change with the tide, but for the most part it is quite clear and shallow. Most people find the water even more clear to the right, so feel free to walk along the shore line and explore. We do equip the cottage with everything you need and if there is anything missing, we are sure to purchase it for the next set of guests! Our home is your home... so we are happy that you make yourselves at home while you are on vacation! We love to hear that our guests had a comfortable stay and appreciated the personal touches that we provide... so thank you! All the best to you with your future travels...
