Stayed here with my daughter while touring Cape Breton. The cabin was very clean and comfortable with a nice view overlooking the water. A short walk down the trail leads to an awesome beach that was almost deserted and had very warm water. Would stay here again for the view, beach and great location.

We rented the cottage for 4 nights... very clean, well maintained, easy walk to the private beach. The kitchen was well stocked with all of the gadgets one would need. The staff at the office was very friendly, informative and provided us great recommendations.

Wish we could have stayed longer! The cabin had everything we needed to be comfortable. The beach was a stroll across the lawn. The staff gave a recommendation to a fab place for dinner. We would stay here again!

We booked a cabin for 3 nights after a long drive. Such a lovely view of water with walking trails right down to beach. It was 2 bedroom cabin with kitchenette and outdoor grill on the patio. Great location to explore Cape Breton. We just loved the quiet here, walking trails, beach...was hard to leave. There is Coop grocery store,...

These are siimple but adequate and comfortable cottages on the edge of the shore on Cape Breton. We stayed three nights in June, and enjoyed sunsets, sky, and peacefulness. They provided us with a gas barbeque for our stay, and we used it every night for dinner. The cottages are basic, but the price reflects that. Ten km further down...

We drove into Nova Scotia without reservations and happened on a "vacancy" sign at these cottages. What a great choice! The cottage feels like home (we even extended our stay), Rachel in the office is warm and welcoming, and the view is absolutely incredible! The décor is totally in keeping with a comfortable, home-y, family atmosphere.

Thank you for your review. We are a great place for a family week at the beach! We have been opened 28 years and we used to allow pets. Some pet owners are outstanding but for several reasons we no longer allow them.
