Immaculate and comfortable
The house is spacious, immaculate, comfortable and well outfitted to accommodate living needs. It is perfectly located for the Margaree River fisherman. It has truly become my home away from home.
Great house, great location, more than great hosts
With the experience of more than 15 holiday-stays in rented houses we - a group of four seniors - expected a comfortable stay in the "Hilton-House". What we got is really more than this! Great location at the Margree River, stylish furnishings, complete equipment (even more than complete). And , most importantly, excellent and warmheartly hosts Ilka and Mike. We had a great stay in Margree Forks and look back gladly on our first holiday week in Nova Scotia. Thank you very much Ilka and Mike being your guests in the "HILTON".
Unser Aufenthalt im Hause von Ilka und Mike am Margree River bleibt uns als exzellenter Start in unseren Nova Scotia Urlaub 2017 fest im Gedaechtnis. Nicht nur das Haus ist grossartigt, seine Besitzer sind es noch in groesserem Masse. Herzlichen Dank an Ilka und Mike, dass wir eure Gaeste sein durften.
It is a wonderful house furnished with love. Great host, very kind and helpful. Very close to the Margaree river, great location for walking with a breathtaking nature and view. As soon as possible we will come back.
Very special home base for salmon fisherman, or for anyone looking for a home base for day trips around the Cabot or Celtic trais... Michael is a peach, and the house perfect... spectacular back deck, and an easy to fish, beautiful salmon pool in your back yard to boot! You'll lack for nothing....
A Castle for the price of a Mansion!!
Perfect place to stay for golfers.
30 min drive to the best golf course in CANADA ( Cabot Cliffs and Cabot Links) and two other close by as well.
As for the house, it is simply perfect. Very clean and well equiped with everything you might need for cooking.
And finally, the owner Michael is simply a scholar and a gentlemen!!
Fun week at Margaree Forks Home!
We really enjoyed Michael's house. It was very comfortable and a well stocked kitchen was great. The outdoor patio was nice and enjoyed the backyard along with the trail out to the river with the chairs and serene sound of the water was so relaxing! We had a relaxing and fun week there, Thanks Michael
Designated as the top island in North America to visit, this is the perfect vacation home from which to explore the unspoiled and protected wilderness and rocky bluffs on one of the world's most scenic drives. At home, in the Margarees, either fish for salmon or trout, bathe in the warm waters of the Gulf stream ocean, or just relax. The Celtic and Acadian music and hospitality will warm your heart. The fresh lobster & crab dinners will nourish your body and the countless magical moments during fossil hunting or beachcombing or just puttering about will allow your spirit to soar with the eagles. Other Activities: live harness racing, ocean fishing & cruises, celtic music, eagle spotting, fossil hunting
