  • Beautiful location to stop and visit

    "We had a wonderful time during our visit to Neil's Harbour. The cottage was clean, spacious, and had everything we needed for a relaxed stay. With three large bedrooms and extra sofa beds in the living room, there was plenty of room for our family. The private deck was nice for a quiet morning coffee or just a place to take a break with a book. The owners, Greg and Jackie, live right next door and were helpful pointing out all the best things to see during our stay. Neil's Harbour is a beautiful place to stop over in Cape Breton and we would highly recommend staying at this cottage."

  • A Sweetheart of a Place

    "Far Far Away Guesthouse is comfortable, cozy and uniquely styled- we enjoyed the decor and artwork. Jay was sweet to leave us a card and bottle of wine as I mentioned it was our anniversary. He was easy to communicate with, very laid back, and overall the perfect host. The cottage is well stocked with extras and some basic food supplies- coffee, sugar, etc, so there is very little one would need to run to the store to get. Close to Mahone Bay (Mug & Anchor restaurant, Jennifer's Bakery are MUSTS) and Chester Basin, (The Galley was wonderful/romantic). The Chester Connector trail goes over the Gold River and along the old train route- we found the area breathtaking. The beauty of this spot is it's out-of-the-way location, while being close to everything one comes to Nova Scotia to see. Caveats: The bathroom is quite cramped, but we managed. The water pump was so loud I didn't wish to flush the toilet or take an early morning shower because I didn't wish to awaken my partner. But I wouldn't hestitate to come back to visit again- I'd just bring earplugs for my honey. It fit with our style of traveling- a base camp for our explorations. It's less than an hour from Ross Farm Museum up Route 12, Martock (OnTree Park) up route 14 and Halifax, up highway 103."

  • Lovely Nova Scotia Escape

    "My family spent a week in this lovely home during the summer. The house is very charming. It is large, spacious and was beautifully furnished with a keen eye to detail. It felt like a family home - not a vacation rental property. The kitchen was new and I loved cooking in it. We enjoyed sitting on the deck looking out over the bay. The property is large and provided plenty of space for my children to run and play - they particularly enjoyed hunting for sea life along the shoreline. Each bedroom had its own character and the house is very close to the towns of Mahone Bay and Lunenburg so getting around was quick and easy. I would highly recommend this house as a place to stay with your family. We had a terrific time."
