  • Awesome vacation! Perfect cottage

    "My husband and I took 5 kids to this beautiful cottage (ages 6 mths to 18) and we truly had an amazing time. The cottage was perfect and the pics do not do it justice. Very cozy clean and beautiful views. Steps to the beach where the kids explored for days. Highly recommend! Great distance from pei ferry and cape Breton. Loved it thanks Debbie!"

  • Home away from home in Antigonish

    "We found the perfect spot for family reunion at the Artist's Beach House. The house and setting reminded us of home with a great porch overlooking the bay on beautiful grounds that were private and even remote, yet only 10 minutes from Antigonish. The house was clean and well kept - so comfortable whether dining together, relaxing or enjoying cocktails in the sun room or on the deck. The kitchen was well equipped, beds were comfortable and there were lots of activities on the grounds as well as kayaking on the bay. The location was well situated for daytrips exploring the coast and Cape Breton Island. Tiiu, the owner, was a gracious hostess - welcoming, friendly and very helpful in suggesting things to do and paces to eat. We felt like we made a friend and we certainly made ourselves at home at our new friend's home."

  • Just What We Were Hoping For

    "Xanadu By the Sea was exactly what we had hoped for. The house was beautiful and the location can't be beat. What's not to love when you can get your coffee, step out the front door, and watch/listen to the waves crashing on the shore...an absolutely beautiful setting. Thanks, Paul and Heidi, for including us in your Thanksgiving celebration. What a special time that was. We enjoyed getting to know your family very much. Oh, be sure and give Bella an extra treat for us! We're dog lovers too, so it was nice to have her pop over for a visit. Thanks again for making your piece of paradise available so others can enjoy it too. God bless."

  • Wonderful Family Retreat

    "We stayed there with another couple in October, 2914 during the peak of foliage season. The house is isolated and has a spectacular water view. A kayak and canoe are provided for use in the pond behind the house. There are many walking trails on the property with lot of room for the kids and dogs to play outside. For those that want to travel, The Writer's Retreat is centrally located in Nova Scotia with easy access to Cape Breton, the Cabot Trail and the Ceildh Trail. It is also possible to do day trips to Halifax and PEI. Antigonish is just 20 minutes away. The house is nicely decorated and has 5 deck with great views. The upper level with the master bedroom, bathroom and a sitting area with a desk is especially attractive. The owner is extremely accommodating and friendly and has caregivers nearby if needed in her absence. Staying at The Writer's Retreat was a great decision. It provided a home away from home for a fabulous vacation!"
