  • Simply the best!

    "This place is a slice of paradise, a gem so beautiful, precious and rare. We are extremely lucky to have stumbled upon it from the other end of the globe! If we could get married again anywhere in the world we would still choose your surreal little spot and go through all the stress, difficulty and added expense of having a wedding far far away from where we are both based. It was so worth it! There wasn't a single guest at the wedding who didn't compliment us on our choice of venue and ask how we managed to find it. I am sure there are many young lads and ladies who attended our wedding already dreaming of having their big day at the same venue. In fact, our sweet photographer from Sambino's photography told us she would love to do the same! That says it all, doesn't it? Photographers recognise beauty best and she was beyond ecstatic when she first saw the place! The house itself was so homey and had just the right amount of space for the 10 of us, there were no squabbles over showers and toilet space. The beds were gloriously comfortable, we all got our beauty sleep. ;-) We even got our 83 year old Nana to play basketball with us (for the very first time), that's how relaxed and at home she was. The kitchen was incredible and had every gadget we could possibly want, we managed to cook two Indian hors d'oeuvres, two big pots of curry and rice, two massive roasts, spuds and vegetables and generous amounts of banana cake for the 70 odd guests at our wedding; all of the above with around 15 mini chefs involved in the process, need we say more? Now coming to our next favourite part, a part so special to everyone who experienced it (No prizes for guessing!). Thank you Paul, for that wonderful evening you shared with us and for the most incredibly delicious lobster dinner you cooked for us. You are a most hospitable and warm host and a fantastic chef. Those who had lobster for the first time, were at a loss for words (All that they could say was mmmm and yessummmm :-) ). The Haligonians themselves couldn't believe how good the lobster was! Enough said. Thank you again for your warmth and hospitality. Thank you for putting up with our music/noise so graciously. Thank you for rescuing us from our toilet paper crisis at 2 am during our wedding reception. Thank you for the most memorable lobster dinner. Thanks for giving us the most perfect wedding! Thanks for everything! Wishing you both and everyone else involved with the house the best, always!"

  • Family bonding time

    "The "Willow Cottage" was the best house for us with three families bonding together for a great weekend in Cape Breton. We were able to eat and play together. The accommodations within the house was perfect for our particular needs. In addition, we want to rent again next year for the reasonable off season rate. Also, family members have given the idea to their friends for when they go to hunt and fish on the Island."

  • Fabulous place to stay

    "This house was everything we wanted for a great vacation lots of room inside and out. Very clean, comfortable, great fireplace, big comfy living room and kitchen to mention a few, a porch in front and great private side deck plus a wonderful stream in the woods with a deck and fire pit to enjoy, picnic, BBQ or just relax and read a book (there was a nice selection). Oh and the beds were really comfy. Right off a main road but with a long driveway so you were not bothered by road noise, lovely grounds to enjoy and play. Also just a mile from Chester and easy to get to all places from there whether Lunenberg or Halifax, very accessible to great restaurants, stores and fun. The owners (really nice people) gave us great info on things to do with lots of pamphlets from all over, whale watching, farmers markets, beaches, coves nearby and far, light houses and Bay of Fundy, museums and all. We really enjoyed our stay and would come back again at any time. Great place for a family or a group of friends lots of privacy but very accessible to all of the beauty of NS."
