“Great house and location with the best sunsets ever.”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014
people found this review helpful

What a great place to stay. If you want peace and quiet, this is it, but close enough to pretty much anything you want to do. Clean and spacious, with many beautiful examples of local arts and crafts. Great views of Cheticamp and Cheticamp Island and unbelievable sunsets. We did a lot of traveling around the island from here, but I could easily spend a week right in this area. I would say the best thing we did all week was http://www.birdisland.net/ and the best meal and entertainment was at http://www.redshoepub.com/. LOVED Cape Breton and can't wait to go back. Don't miss a whale watch with http://www.whalecruisers.com/. Lots of great trails in the park. Go see Meat Cove and Cabot's Landing too. I would definitely recommend this rental. It is well kept by the owner's cousin Germaine. She was very helpful and informative, but never intrusive. In short. Go, and rent this house.
