"We spent a week in this spacious home while we were visiting Halifax and attending our sons wedding. It comfortably housed all ten of us and was centrally located to many attractions and the wedding events. We were able to host the reception party and have a home away from our home for this special event. It was great to have all the comforts of home: washer and dryer, kitchen space, outdoor yard space. The only frustration we had during our stay was totally out of the owners control - construction around the area made it difficult to access the house but by now this will be complete. This is a large space that can accommodate a large group comfortable. I would definitely rent this house again if I was coming to the area."

"The lodging was very nice, modern, comfortable setting. The King and Queen bed were very comfortable. The double trundle bed was acceptable. The pullout upstairs was very uncomfortable for the couple that slept on it. Should be upgraded so that all enjoy a good nights sleep or change the advertisement to sleeps 3 couples comfortably. It is very close to Baddeck, just 1 minute away from the town, which made it convenient for picking up groceries and getting ice cream at the Blue Heron. The golf package was as advertised and enjoyable."

"Peggy's Cottage is the essence of charm, calm and comfort. I fell in love with the upper bedroom -- its light, the views and the library -- and ended each touring day reading by one its four front windows. Thoughtful attention to detail is evident: the kitchen is well-equipped; brochures/maps to local spots are available; directions to bay access and instructions for recycling are clear; even laundry detergent is provided! The cottage grounds are also charming -- there's a beautiful moss-covered path in the back that takes you by a creek, a favourite spot for my terrier to cool off. (And a good old clothesline, so your wash can dry in the glorious sun I was treated to for several days)!
As others before me have said, the hosts are incredibly welcoming and helpful. During the booking process, Peggy was particularly quick to respond to my frequent and numerous questions.
The traffic roaring by the front of the cottage was a bit overwhelming at times, but perhaps that was due to the fact that it was a busy time of year (the Digby Wharf Rat motorcycle festival was on). Be careful backing your car out onto the highway.
And be cautioned: this is most definitely an unplugged experience! There is no cell reception nor is there a landline. The fact that I was on my own and couldn't make a call made me feel a little unsettled and is why I cannot give this otherwise delightful property 5 stars.
But I will be back. I want to experience this beautiful part of the world in fall, winter, and spring."

"Had a great vacation at this lovely cottage. The beach was steps away and the deck was amazing with beautiful sunsets every night. The cottage is equipped with all the kitchen essentials for cooking and is very clean and spacious. The outdoor shower is very nice to rinse off after a day at the beach, and there's a washer, dryer and dishwasher also. It was so nice to find a place as nice as this cottage that allowed our dog to enjoy our vacation with us. Would definitely stay again and hope to next summer."
