"Everything about this location is outstanding! The house itself is gorgeous, with incredible views. Some of the best sunsets we have seen anywhere. The area is also beautiful with beaches, lookouts, coves, and scenic drives. We didn't want to leave! While staying here we did the drive around the Cabot Trail which is a definite must do if you are in the area and perfect for a day trip. We stopped for lunch and at one store as well as a few of the scenic lookouts and were back in 10 hours. If we are ever lucky enough to travel back to this area I wouldn't hesitate to book Kelly's retreat again."

"The Bella Vista Cottage was awesome. As soon as we walked into this home, we knew we would love our time here. The cottage had upscale furnishings, including a nice size flat screen TV, a very comfortable sofa, fast internet service, and most importantly, a magnificent view. That view was the best place we have ever stayed and came with a large sail boat anchored right out in front of the cottage. We felt very comfortable and safe in this little community of homes. The Cottage had excellent linens and appliances. The showers were a delight to use…very roomy and easy to maintain. Needless to say, there was more than enough space since there were only 2 of us. But it would be very comfortable for 6 people, including teens or two couples. We enjoyed exploring Chester and found the Fo’c’sle restaurant food very good. We also used the gas grill at the Cottage. If you rent this place, you will not be disappointed."

"My family of five stayed here and loved every minute. The location is so beautiful that the pictures do not do it justice. Jitka is as warm and welcoming as the reviews said she would be. The house is comfortable and everyone had their own space. It was a wonderful vacation. There is so much to do on Cape Breton Island that we could have easily spent another week. My only advice would be to fly into Sydney rather than Halifax. The drive from Halifax is very long."

"What a magical place
I first must say how gracious Bill is. We made the long journey from Michigan and arrived at 330 am!! Bill was waiting for us and greeted us warmly. There was a bouquet of flowers chocolate and wine waiting for us. How lovely !!
The house is warm and comfortable and inviting. Perfect really. The location is stunning and a short drive to many beautiful locations. If R and R is what is needed then the deck is an ideal spot. We saw bald Eagles flying around us butterflies and humming birds.
The kitchen was great everything we needed and the sleeping accommodations very nice and peaceful. Peggy's cove is stunning Halifax a fun and beautiful city and cape Breton is a must see. Nova Scotia and Bills house will be visited again. Thank you again Bill!!"
