  • Can't say enough good things about this place!

    "This is a beautiful, spacious cottage with an amazing view. Peaceful, practical, and comfortable. It had everything we needed/wanted and nothing that we didn't. Close to the fishing village of Cheticamp and Cape Breton Highlands National Park. John (owner) was a great resource. WiFi worked great. We want to go back!"

  • Wonderful place to stay

    "We spent 5 nights at this beautiful condo. It is exactly as described. The condo is situated very close to all amenities and right across from a very large active municipal park, close to grocery stores and quaint restaurants. The condo is fully equipped and it's like bring at home. Would definitely recommend this rental. It's perfect for two couples."

  • Wonderful Family Retreat

    "We stayed there with another couple in October, 2914 during the peak of foliage season. The house is isolated and has a spectacular water view. A kayak and canoe are provided for use in the pond behind the house. There are many walking trails on the property with lot of room for the kids and dogs to play outside. For those that want to travel, The Writer's Retreat is centrally located in Nova Scotia with easy access to Cape Breton, the Cabot Trail and the Ceildh Trail. It is also possible to do day trips to Halifax and PEI. Antigonish is just 20 minutes away. The house is nicely decorated and has 5 deck with great views. The upper level with the master bedroom, bathroom and a sitting area with a desk is especially attractive. The owner is extremely accommodating and friendly and has caregivers nearby if needed in her absence. Staying at The Writer's Retreat was a great decision. It provided a home away from home for a fabulous vacation!"
