Guysborough Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Quiet location, water views, private pebble beach, boat launch, canoe, internet

The cottage (2 bedrooms, 4-5 persons) and the studio (bedroom loft, 2-3 persons) are located on the waterfront at the mouth to Chedabucto Bay, halfway from International Airport Halifax at the Cape Breton Highlands. Cottage and Studio can individually, or be rented together with friends, for family reunions, weddings or other celebrations. It's an ideal place to relax. Breakfast on the beach, watching bald eagles, take a ride in a canoe and enjoy the sunset at the campfire at night. The golf course is accessible by a boat in 5 minutes. Fishing in front of the cottage and deep sea fishing can be arranged by appointment. It is highly recommended to make day trips to explore the beautiful surroundings with its many lakes, rivers, forests and breathtaking bays and beaches.

A wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults, two early teens) recently spent 2 nights at Irmi and Michael's cottage, what a treat! The property is extremely comfortable and welcoming, with all the amenities we needed. The location is stunning: 10 meters from the water, a 3 minute drive into Guysborough and close to Tor Bay Provincial Park. We even got out in the canoe for a quick paddle. We loved our time here, and recommend it unreservedly.

Perfect Spot to unwind and relax!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every minute, perfect weather, full moon by the fire pit, swimming, fishing, canoeing to Bird Island, exploring Guysborough, Tor Bay and the coast. The cottage is perfect, with wonderful water views. Irmi and Michael, thank you so much for sharing your special place and for your warm hospitality, we enjoyed Cape Breton travel but were happy to be back at the cottage. Faye and Matt

Beautiful, peaceful, scenic. Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Michael and Irmi were very friendly, and we cannot say enough about how wonderful the 2 bedroom cottage is! We enjoyed the private beachfront, the dock and the beautiful firepit and deck - even in the rain. This cottage was perfect for a best friend getaway trip, but would also be great for families and romantic getaways! The fireplace was wonderful, and the kitchen was equipped so that we could cook for ourselves throughout our 3 night stay. We will most certainly be back! -Lisa, Courtney and Ellie the great dane!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at the cottage for several nights in late September and enjoyed every bit of it.

Cottage was clean, warm and well equipped. Stars were great at night and wildlife during the day. We even saw a bald eagle flying overhead.

We would recommend it with question to those that enjoy quiet.
