Serene and secluded

  • 5 of 5

This was one of my favorite vacations. Off the beaten path. A perfect place to relax and rejuvinate. The house is beautiful and well taken care of. We throughly enjoyed our stay as did our dogs. I plan to re-visit this on my next trip to Cape Breton.

October 2015-Tour

  • 5 of 5

The house was bright, spacious, great view, (especially for sunrises) comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen. Quiet out of the way but not that far. Held 6 adults comfortably. Will recommend to friends.

Will go again

Only thing was missing was the TV remote.

Lovely Home with Great View

  • 5 of 5

We were there the first week in Oct. and the first three days were overcast and windy, but we were able to enjoy the beautiful view of the ocean from inside. The final days were sunny and perfect as we explored Cabot Trail and traveled on the other trails to enjoy the Celtic music, gorgeous scenery, wonderfully friendly people, and good food at the Cedar House restaurant nearby. We also loved the Lobster Supper restaurant in Baddeck. My sister has Multiple Chemical Sensitivities and was so impressed with the fact that the house was clean and free of any chemical fragrances. We slept like babies and enjoyed a vacation free from the noise of TV. We were very pleased with the property and would highly recommend it to others.

Quiet Family Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Our family had not had downtime in over 2 years - this cottage offered us a quiet retreat from our hectic schedule. It was as described - bright, clean and comfortable. Clean being the most important aspect! We were a little disappointed by the fact a relatively new cottage has so many inoperable windows - a cool ocean breeze would have done wonders on those days when it hit 25C. My husband missed TV with only CBC being available through an antenna, but to me that was minor. The directions were slightly misleading - the cottage before it is yellow not white! But that was only an issue the first time. If we ever travel to Cape Breton again - we would definitely try to rent this cottage!

Owner's Response: Hello, the owner here. Just to say that the house next door use to be white but the owners recently changed the colour, so thanks for the heads up. I will make the changes to the directions. Also, the two windows have been repaired finally by the company, they are all under a life time warranty. So glad you enjoyed your stay and glad you will book us again in the future. Thank you

Perfect place to relax or enjoy day trips

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your cottage. It’s a beautiful place, and a perfect location for day trips to discover all that Cape Breton has to offer. We are pleased that we found your cottage.

For others renting the property - tips:

The add does not promise a pool and hot tub - but they are there. If your really want it working, I would suggest working it out with the owner prior to the rental.

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular sun sets, the view is beautiful. The cottage was bright, spacious and super clean. Very private and quite a spot for a family gathering. It is centrally located, close to North Sydney for shopping. During a shopping trip we decided to stop at a restaurant called Captain Ron's Restaurant; we recommend that you try it, best "home cooked" food we've tasted.

My only suggestions for improvement are:

Hot tub working

Swimming pool working


I cannot wait for my next vacation to the Island as I would love to stay here again is was quite a treat.
