Our time in Michael's Guest house was too short. The Margaree Valley was incredibly beautiful and Michael's
hospitality equal to the location. Made to feel right at home and everything you could possibly want or need
in this wonderful home. Fishing at the Salmon pool at the bottom of the property was the highlight of my trip
and Michael's generous help with us less experienced fly fisherman made our day. Wonderful spot and host!

What a wonderful vacation we had in Nova Scotia. One of the great highlights was staying at Michael Hilton's guest home. The home is beautiful inside and out and the property is gorgeous. Walking to the river and watching a pair of bald eagles in flight was a thrill. So much beautiful countryside to see, wonderful seafood to eat and fiddlers to enjoy that we wished we could have stayed at the guest house another week. We can't thank Michael and Ilke enough for their wonderful hospitality. We felt like we were saying goodbye to friends when we left. We hope to return to Margaree Forks and this beautiful home again soon.
My family and I flew from Chicago and then took a long drive from Boston to the Margaree Valley--and the trip was well worth the effort. The home is in beautiful condition, as is the extensive property along the Margaree River--and Michael and Ilke are very, very cordial and helpful owners. We spent days wading and fishing in the river, nights along the river at a fireside family gathering, afternoons playing soccer on the yard. Each day we also spent hours at beaches nearby or on hikes on the Broad Cove and Skyline Trail in the provincial park. Cape Breton offers both sublime cliffs and surprisingly warm beach waters. We all would very gladly return.
We were fortunate to stay at this beautiful home with a group of friends. The owner Michael was very hospitable when we arrived and joined us for dinner one night. He made us scallops that were out of this world. We highly recommend this house to anyone and will definitely stay here again!
Thank you for helping to make our vacation amazing!
I have been staying here for one or two weeks a year since 2009 during salmon season on the Margaree River. The owner became an immediate friend to our little group and was welcoming, informative and straight forward from the start. The house is clean, very comfortable and complete with all of the conveniences the modern traveler might expect. Nova Scotians are friendly to a fault and some of the local eateries are superb. I cannot wait for my next trip and I just arrived back home from my most recent trip there yesterday!
Many things make a good holiday-- The people,the area, the weather and not least the accommodation. Michael's house was a pleasure to stay in. It is well presented , very well equipped and exceedingly comfortable. Michael is very welcoming. We used it as a base to explore the beautiful area and it was always lovely to return to such superb accommodation after a day out. We can only recommend it highly. Thanks Michael for providing such a great retreat.

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.
