Peace and quiet
Very pleasant break in a lovely quiet location. Only downside was the mosquitoes.

Beautiful Spot
We had a fabulous stay! The cottage was immaculate and had everything one could need. The back deck is beautiful and we enjoyed our morning coffee listening to the water and the birds. We even spotted an eagle one evening. Our 2 boys loved the loft and the foosball table! We explored cape breton and antigonish during our stay with some fishing and swimming in between! The only drawback were the millions of mosquitos around making it difficult to fully enjoy outdoor activities on the property. However, this is completely out of control of the property owners and we very much appreciated the bug spray and anti-itch cream! Overall a great experience. We highly recommend.

Outstanding. Everything you could possibly need was provided.
The whole family including the dogs enjoyed their stay. The owner's relatives were extremely helpful with launching and removing our boat from the water. They built a dock before we arrived! The property is situated on a protected inlet. Neighbors are very friendly. The property is close to a malor town fir shopping and mesls out. Cl9se to the Cabot Trail which is an incredible venture. Couldn't be happier about our stay. Great value and totally enjoyable.
