Harbour House in Cape Breton
We spent a few days at Harbour House and very much enjoyed our time there! Very peaceful and beautiful scenery!
Great base for exploring Cape Breton
As a party of four couples, we thoroughly enjoyed our week at this property. The owner was very responsive to questions ahead of our stay, and there was someone available locally to check that we had everything we needed. Most days we managed to balance heading out to see local attractions while still having time to swim, kayak, or explore the property itself. If you’re looking to visit Cape Breton, this is an ideal base and the cottage itself is comfortable and well equipped. Highly recommended!
The Otter Harbour home was exactly as described in the listing... Spacious, beautiful setting, secluded, etc. We loved using the kayaks to explore the various lagoons and islands. We also loved being able to sit on the deck overlooking the water in the evening. At night, our teens played ping pong and watched movies in the home theater while I (mom) took a bath in the soaking tub w/jets. So relaxing!
The home itself is lovely. It is perfectly appointed with everything you need - including wifi, media options, etc. The decor is a bit dated, but don't let that stop you. Beds are comfortable. The place is super clean. And it has clearly been well cared for. (Plus, the owners of the property have an extensive book collection spanning an impressive range of topics that we thoroughly enjoyed!)
This was our first visit to Nova Scotia. We were excited about touring Cape Breton, specifically the Cabot Trail and the Highlands Nat'l Park. So, we weren't quite sure where we should stay. This property is within driving distance for sure - the Cabot Trail is just 10-15 min away. However, it is important to know that the home is about 1.5-2 hours away from the national park and highlands. We did wonder if we should consider staying further north during our next visit since we loved hiking in the highlands... That said, groceries and restaurants were plentiful w/in a 20-30 min drive and we were happy w/our choice of Otter Harbour overall.
Great place Very private
Quick and easy
Great weekend at Otter Harbour
Lovely home. Beautiful, peaceful location. My family spent a long weekend here. Private, very quiet. Very attentive and helpful property owner and caretaker. Very comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen. Hope to stay for a longer vacation in the future.
Perfect base to relax, explore, and play - family-friendly
We loved our stay at Otter Harbour. Clean and well appointed property with amenities that exceeded our expectations (games, books, in-home movie theatre, kayaks, trails nearby. We enjoyed the privacy of the house but found the location to be ideal for exploring other parts of Cape Bretton Island. The owners were responsive to our needs. Good choice for a family trip.
