Lovely spot, peaceful and convenient!

  • 4 of 5

My sister and I stayed at Captains Cottage for 3 nights. We were warmly welcomed by the owner Annett. The cottage was well equipped, very comfortable and cozy. The interior was tastefully done and had a great sound system. The kitchen had everything we could wish for, and, lots of hummingbirds on the little feeder on the window.The scenery outside was gorgeous with a deck at the same level as the cottage and another deck with the BBQ on the lakeside with a beautiful view of the lake to watch the spectacular sunsets! The bedrooms were roomy and the beds comfy, tastefully done up with IKEA furniture and lighting. We would certainly return to Captains Cottage in the future! P.S. Stay away from the Cameron Mountain Road unless you have 4wheel drive! Lidwien and Lida.

A beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I decided to take a trip through Cape Breton and this cottage was definitely our favorite! It was very clean and everything we needed was provided. Every morning we would wake up to a beautiful view and watch the Bald Eagles fly by. The cottage gave us the feeling of a home away from home. Thank you to Annett for making us feel so welcome. We are sure to come back!

Great cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Cottage and grounds were lovely. Walking to the beach - not for the elderly. Also - no sheets on the beds.

Owner's Response: Dear Alicia, thank you for taking the time to review our cottage. We are happy to hear that you liked our place. We are sorry to hear that you missed the sheets, but since we have duvet bedding which is completely washed after each check out, there is no need of putting sheets. I guess that this is European Style and fairly new in North America. We find it way more hygienic though. The mowed path that leads to the beach is gently sloped and unless somebody has problems to walk in general, it should be any trouble to go there. We are very sorry if this has caused you problems! We would be happy to welcome you again! Warm regards, Annett & Rene

Very nice place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. The property and owners were nice and it was very clean. Beds could be updated but most places we find this a problem. Best of luck to the owners and we would stay again.

Owner's Response: Dear Ken & Katie, thank you for taking the time to review our cottage. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our place. We are sorry to hear that you had problems with the beds, but cannot understand why, since they were newly bought in 2010 and are not of cheap quality. Maybe you are just used to a different mattress at home. We are looking forward to welcome you again in the near future! Best regards, Annett & Rene

Awesome

  • 3 of 5

5 star place.We had a great stay. 4 days of rain didn't stop us from exploring the island. The first night of star gazing and counting shooting stars was great. We golfed at Dundee and also ate in dining room. Cottage was great. Explored the beach both ways and found treasures. Also went surfing. Thank you sooooo much. We will return again.

Property owner met us and showed us around and answered all of our questions. Cottage was very cute, clean and the property was well kept. The view from the deck was breathtaking. I would highly recommend this property!
