About the property

Islandview Cottage

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.

Magical place

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful, quiet and peaceful place! It proved to be more than i could hope for. The view is spectacular, with the tides coming in to your footsteps. You feel right at home the minute you walk in. And the property owners are super friendly. Wish i could stay a whole month there. I made fires daily, kayaked at full moon and wrote a full script in 6 days. Stayed there for two weeks. Town of Guysborough nearby has all you need food-wise and a beautiful provincial park that i highly recommend to walk through. So, if you're looking for a place to recharge your batteries - this is the one, dfinitely.

Absolute Erholung im gemütlichen Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im August 2015 im kleinen Cottage und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Cottage ist sehr gemütlich und sauber und es ist absolut alles vorhanden, was man evtl. brauchen könnte. Das Haus ist 5 Schritte vom Wasser entfernt und das Wasser war recht warm.Unsere netten Vermieter haben sich wunderbar um uns gekümmert und waren immer verfügbar. Wir fühlten uns fast wie auf Familienbesuch. Die Lage und Aussicht sind traumschön, die Tierwelt hat uns begeistert. Wir haben viele Weißkopf-Seeadler, Kolibris und viele andere Tiere gesehen und sogar 2 Robben in unserer Bucht. Wir haben einige Ausflüge gemacht, sind mit dem Kanu rausgefahren zum Angeln und nach Guysborough, oder ans Meer zum Baden, da das Wetter superschön war. Zwei Tage waren wir auf Cape Breton Island zum Wandern und Whale-watching, aber man sollte sich eigentlich mehr Zeit für die schöne Insel nehmen. Wir werden wieder nach Nova Scotia kommen und bedanken uns noch einmal bei Irmi und Michael für die schöne Bootstour im Abendrot, LG Ute und Chris
