Thoroughly enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

The property location was wonderfully quiet and the view was fabulous. The interior was comfortable and lovely and it had all the amenities that we needed. We did have a bit of trouble running the dishwasher at first and I would suggest packing your own sharp knives but other than that the kitchen was well outfitted. We were very sad to leave and would definitely rent this property again.

Listing description was accurate and pictures were true. Property was clean and request taken care of promptly. Beautiful setting and very quiet. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property. A nice surprise when we got there was the addition of WIFI.

We just came home (I wanted to stay) from our trip to Cape Breton NS. We stayed for 3 nights in this beautiful home by the sea. We loved the home and the time to unwind. The views were spectacular! We went down to the beach, but it was too cool to swim. Had a couple of rainy days, but this is a great place to be in the middle of everything. Drove the Cabot Trail one day, and the next day went to Sydney and Port Morien to see where my Grandmother was born & where my G Grandparents are buried. Also went to the Fortress of Louisbourg the same day.

Woke on our last day to a beautiful sunrise coming in the windows!

The house was clean, well stocked, and even has a washing machine which we didn't take advantage of because it was raining and couldn't hang the clothes out to dry.

The owner stopped by on our first night to make sure we were settled and if we needed anything.

My only "complaint" (and it does not reflect on this place), is that there aren't any gas stations close by. My advise is to make sure you have a full tank before you get there!

Great place for 2 couples as we were, as well as families with kids.

We would definitely come back here in the future!

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.
