“Wonderful, Very Peaceful”
Reviewed 20 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013
people found this review helpful

I stayed for 2 weeks and found Big Hill Retreat and the cabin just what I was looking for. It's off the main road and it's very peaceful. The cabins are solid, spotless, and very well equipped. The covered porch, with its gorgeous view of Cape Breton hills, is a treat. The trails on the 200-acre property are great for exploring and enjoying the forest, brooks, waterfalls, and birds, with benches scattered throughout. For anyone who loves the outdoors but also enjoys the comforts of home, Big Hill Retreat is perfect. Linda, Terry, and Richard are helpful, friendly, and generous. I sure hope I can return to Cape Breton, and when I do, I will definitely stay at Big Hill again.
