"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."

"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."

"ditto on all other good reviews and then some.
the weather was perfect. the property charming. the wonderful breezes coming off ocean soothed the soul. the birds overhead, the deer in the yard, the chipmunk on the deck and the precious baby frog trying to get up the front stairs were delightful.
the layout of the house was so accommodating. 3 BR and 3 bath - perfect for 3 individuals. the bonus of doing laundry and hanging out on line.
never mind the relaxing walks to nearby beaches!
wonderful memory. and if you can. do not miss a cruise on the bluenose II in nearby Lunenburg. OUTSTANDING."

"Great place! The location is amazing, overlooking the water and very private. Beautiful view from inside the cottage, lots of windows, and from the deck due to the clear glass panels. My kids loved the loft upstairs, and there was lots of room for 6 of us, could have easily accommodated more. The kids also paddled out in the canoe one morning. Easy drive to Peggy's cove, Lunenburg, Halifax etc...A great place for all! Would have loved to stay all summer!!"
