"The cottage is absolutely beautiful and the pictures truly don't do it justice. We had our annual family weekend here and everyone was comfortable and we were never bored! Between beach combing, fishing, going into Arisaig for lobster, and ping pong in the basement, we had full days each day! You literally have your own personal ocean beach, it's amazing! Cozy inside and tons of space outside, you won't be disappointed. Debbie is more than helpful with anything you need and will answer any questions you have. A great weekend!!"

"My husband and I selected this home for its Inverness location and because it was dog-friendly. We were not disappointed. The house is wonderful, photos don't do it justice. The first thing I noticed was the wonderful windows and the bright and open floor plan. The house was clean and in good condition and fully equipped. There are so many wonderful places to sit, relax and enjoy the sunset and see the view of the water. The nearby Inverness Beach was wonderful for taking our dog to play in the surf. We drove the Cabot Trail, hiked Skyline Trail, took a tour and dined at the distillery and enjoyed nearby restaurants (The Red Shoe Pub and The Dancing Goat Café & Bakery to mention a couple.) Vicki was so easy to work with and it was great to have George to show us all we needed to know about the property and we knew he was nearby in case we needed him. We appreciated the new Weber gas grill and used it when we didn't go out to eat, and we loved the house's artsy charm and reclaimed furnishings. We're so glad we got to stay here for our visit to Cape Breton. Thanks to you Vicki and your family for sharing this special place with us."

"A beautiful drive, spanning nearly 2000 kilometers, is fantastically capped as our family of four pull in to the Mainsail and its perfect view of the Atlantic ocean. Before we can draw a breath of the salty air our amazing hosts are greeting us.
We get the welcoming tour and what a great place it is!
A very clean space with ample linens and stocked full of all the little things you don't want to have to get while away. Small extras provided by our hosts made going swimming, having a campfire or enjoying the Hubbard's parade even more amazing.
The photos are unable to capture the beauty of the setting or the surprising amount of space afforded within the cottage.
Hubbard's was full of amazing sites and activities. Our lucky timing coordinated with fireworks, a parade, and live performances on the cove. Everyone we met was welcoming and helpful when needed. If you have the pleasure of being in Hubbard's for the farmer's market it is an essential stop.
I would be remiss if I did not mention the ceilidh we experienced as our hosts, at the Trellis Cafe, gave us a memorable performance that is a highlight of our visit.
Every moment of our stay could be described like the music of that night.
"And the songs get louder,
Each one better than before"
We would be back in a heartbeat."

"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!!"
