Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Rene and Annett



My goodness, I kept telling Chris to remind me to write to you guys to thank you but we forgot as we continued our road trip around Cape Breton.

Thank you so much for letting us stay at your cottage!



I want to say, that I really really appreciated how clean it was. That's the #1 most important thing to me and you guys had everything clean (not just tidy, but actually clean).

What a pleasure to stay in such a cute little cottage that still had everything you need. We never got around to using the BBQ but had we stayed longer we would have!

We really enjoyed out stay, and hope you didn't find anything out of order (to be honest.. the recycling was a bit stressful haha.. I had to read that paper every time I needed to throw something out!).



If ever we come back to Nova Scotia, we will definitely look you up. Too bad we couldn't meet in person, but it was a pleasure dealing with you anyway. Thank you for everything and I hope the two of you had a really nice summer!

Charming house in an idyllic location

  • 4 of 5

The charming house lies idyllic and absolutely quiet, pure nature. It is very convenient, in which it is very good to make a few days vacation. In summer ideal for water sports such as swimming, kayaking etc. Shops and restaurants are a bit further away.

Beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

I really loved being at this cottage on this spot and could hardly believe how quiet Bras d'Or itself was, or how beautiful. Having never been to Cape Breton before I was often gone during the day, but the cottage was such a nice place to come home to at the end of each one. It was extremely clean, simply furnished, and thoughtfully equipped. The internet connection at night was a little iffy, but, living as I do in a place where internet connections are fickle, I appreciate the likely fact that the cottage owners may have no control over that aspect of the place. If time and money ever again collide in my life I would love to stay at this cottage again.

Owner's Response: Dear Kathryn, thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about our cottage. We really appreciate it! Thank you also for the praise. We always try our best to make it as perfect as possible. Unfortunately, we - indeed - have no control over the internet since the rural places have not much of a choice... We just got informed though that the provider will install upgrades within the next two weeks and it should run much better. We shall see... We hope to see you again someday. All the best! Annett & Rene

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
