"We stayed here while some work was being done on our house. The house is near downtown and right around the corner from the Propeller Brewery which is convenient! The house is an older home but has a lot of charm with old floors, high ceilings, and moldings which was cool especially if you live in a more modern place. The house is across the street from the huge skating Oval for winter use (with free skates), and the Halifax Common, although not very green in the winter. Even though it was winter we used the BBQ in the backyard a lot... it would be amazing in summer as it is sheltered and private. We used only two bedrooms but all were well equipped. I saw a note about beds... the beds were fine and it appears that the one my wife and I used appeared brand new (plastic on box spring). The washer and dryer worked great and there is a great ice cream/burrito/coffee spot call DeeDee's around the corner. We had friends drop in a fair bit and this place is great for entertaining by itself and because it's right by all the restos/bars/events downtown. We parked mainly on the street and used the owners driveway next door and had no problem at all. The owners were available on phone/text all the time and helped with any questions or anything we needed. Overall, a great time, and while we were glad to get home, I would recommend to anyone, especially groups and those in town for weddings/events."

"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."

"We had a wonderful time at the Cottage. It was a perfect jumping off point for exploring the South Shore. Having the ferry and the bakery so close was really nice too. The cottage was as expected--clean, comfortable, and perfect for our family of 3. No complaints at all. Thanks for a wonderful stay. To future guests--hit Rhubarb restaurant near Peggy's cove--very yummy and the best chowder around. Risser's beach and crescent beach were both really nice. We found a very off the beaten path hike not too far from Peggy's Cove--can't remember the name though. But, it was a great hike along the coast and we avoided the masses at Peggy's Cove."

"The WIllow is a WOW!!!! It's been our home away from home for so many months and we absolutely loved it!!! Would definitely recommend this house for anyone visiting Cape Breton. It was a pleasure living here and meeting the most awesome people we have ever met in all our travels over Canada. Moira, part owner of the Willow, what can I say about this awesome lady??? She went up and beyond for us as our landlord!!!! She took it upon herself to find places for us and our workers to stay when we had to move out because off bookings made from months before we even arrived here. We wished we could still be living at the Willow but we are very happy also with the place she found for us especially in this very busy peak season. What a beautiful home, beautiful lady and beautiful Cape Breton!!
Blanda & Paul"
