Shangri-La in Baddeck, NS

5 of 5
I have been renting homes through Homeaway and VRBO for at least 7 or 8 years now. This may be the best place I've ever rented. The home, its furnishings and its location on the shore of Bras d'Or Lake all combine to deliver a sense of peace and tranquility. In my aunt's words, staying in this home added "a whole new dimension to our experience" at the Celtic Colours festival of 2016. It is a premium property. The pictures are good, but don't really do full justice when it comes to conveying the ambiance of the home and property. The level of attention to detail, all for the convenience of a guest, is remarkable. As an example, there were three small pocket size flashlights hanging on a small rack in the kitchen, in case anyone needed them. The furniture, linens and kitchen fittings were not as good as home - they were often better! The kitchen is huge and has pretty much anything you could possibly want in it. There is a half bath off the kitchen. We were a party of five. Two people stayed in the guesthouse, which includes a king size bed and a full bathroom with a huge walk in shower. Two ( I was one of the two) stayed in the master suite in the main house, which also has a full bath off of it with a tub and shower combination. It also has a small walk in closet with lots of hangers, which was really appreciated! Finally, there is an attic that has been nicely converted to a sleeping loft above the main house, running the entire length of the house. It's accessed via an outdoor staircase. My niece had that space to herself, though there are 3 or four beds in the space; one in an area right by the entrance and the others at the farther end, with a half bath between the two areas. Jan, the property owner, was very accommodating, providing excellent instructions for reaching the property, tips for shopping ahead of arrival and she was available for any questions. She's also done a wonderful job of putting together information on the house, the town and Cape Breton. It is clear that she takes great pride in this property (as well she should), works hard to maintain it and wants her guests to enjoy it as much as she does. This is a wonderful property for a small group of adult friends, family or extended family group, especially with children who are a little older and who can sleep in the attic on their own (or have an older child or adult to sleep up there with them).

Great Vacation Spot

5 of 5
I have been meaning to write this review for some time to let others know about this wonderful vacation spot. My husband and I spent a week here in August, 2016 with two other couples and we found it the perfect base for exploring Cape Breton Island. The setting is very private and peaceful, with spectacular views of the lake. The cottages are beautiful and really comfortable; everything you need and more. The main cottage was a terrific gathering space with a well stocked kitchen and comfortable living room and dining room. It was also ideal for us to be able to spread out among the three cottages for a little privacy at nighttime or whenever. The deck is another great space to enjoy meals and relaxation, although we did have some problems with biting insects. The owners, Katie and Jamie, were great to work with, both during the booking process and while we were on Cape Breton. They were there the same week we were, in a separate cottage down the hill. They were friendly and had helpful suggestions on restaurants, puffin tours, etc., but were never intrusive. The town of Baddeck is a great base for exploring Cape Breton Island, with nice restaurants and shops and easy access to the rest of Cape Breton Island. We can recommend this property without hesitation!

Cute little cottage in a terrific location

4 of 5
This house was a great base camp for exploring Baddeck. The location is unbeatable--you can walk to the grocery store, local restaurants, pubs, etc. The bed was extremely comfortable, the shower has wonderful water pressure, and the cottage itself is more than adequate for two adults. There aren't many frills or indulgences (cooking can be a bit of a trick), but the location and overall comfort can't be beat. An easy recommendation.
