"We loved the setting - right on the cove - very scenic and oh so quiet - yet near to town for food shopping, gas, hiking trails, highway access, etc. House is very nice - fully stocked kitchen, big windows, deck, comfy beds, lots to read -- everything we needed!"

"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!"

"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!"
