Great Cottage Week

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for just under a week. Great set up and much larger than advertised. Easily accomodated our group of 4 adults and 3 kids. Fantastic views from all the rooms and very close to Baddeck. Good fishing off the dock where we caught striped Bass every night. This is an easy referral to give.

Brilliant week away

  • 5 of 5

Great location just out of Baddeck. Kids first impression as drove done track was ' Brilliant' and within 5 minutes they were swimming off deck. For them the swimming included seeing starfish, crabs and fish and catching a few before throwing them back. Property lovely inside and well maintained. Setting was such that there was little need to head out in the evenings rather we sat and watched the sunset over the lake. Great location to travel throughout the Cape. Fortress of Luisburg, Skytrail and Ingenosh were all within 90 minutes. Luisburg was fantastic as was the trip to Bird Island from Englishtown. Another highlight was the bald eagles being fed from the boat! Baddeck was easily accessible and while we didn't venture out much in evenings the Bell Buoy restaurant was good and there is a nightly Ceilidh. Caretaker was easy to access and wifi great. Would recommend this cottage as a great central location to roam far and wide across Cape Breton.

Wonderful cottage, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this cottage in late June and it was wonderful. Everything was as promised in the description. The cottage was clean and spacious and the location was great. It was wonderful to be on the lake for fishing and to be centrally located for all of the interesting sights to be enjoyed on Cape Breton. Highly recommended!

Beautiful spot - quintessential Cape Breton

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time @ the cottage. Beautiful views, rustic charm and great location. Close to all sightseeing, boat tours, Baddeck and AGB Museum. Kids loved the bunks and the loft - like a tree house, also swimming was great. So lucky to be able to enjoy this gorgeous spot in Cape Breton.

Rustic cottage where you can see the generations of happy times.

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of my family stayed here for Canada Day and July 4th. If you are looking for a rustic cottage to use as a base, this is it. We explored water falls, hiking trails, saw moose and bald eagles, and went sailing.

Jan and Barb go out of their way to be good hosts. Everything you need for a wonderful stay is provided.

Idyllic setting in the center of Cape Breton

  • 5 of 5

This rustic lake front cottage - right down the same road where Alexander Graham Bell lived for many years - has a spectacular view and all the privacy you could want. It is only about a five minute drive into Baddeck, arguably the best location for touring Cape Breton. Even with a couple of short hikes and other stops in the National Park, the Cabot Trail can easily be done from Baddeck in a day, and the impressively reconstructed Fortress of Louisbourg is only an hour and a half drive. Baddeck itself has considerable charm, with a number of good and fun restaurants. A notebook in the cottage of things to do and see prepared by the owners was most helpful. For golfers the Bell Bay Golf Club was set beautifully and in great condition.

The cottage itself was very homey with family pictures and other memorabilia. The kitchen was very well equipped. We vacationed in early September, so the pot belly stove in the master was welcome and fun to use. We were three couples; however, the house could easily hold several more (especially children). All in all, a memorable vacation made even better by our stay at the Lake Cottage.
