About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1+ 1/2 Bath, (Sleeps 6-10)

Ocean View Cottage has a new name “Hill Top Haven.”

Between the sea and sky on the world famous Cabot Trail there is a slice of paradise waiting for you!

Hill Top Haven vacation rental is a three bedroom, one and a half bathroom, fully equipped house keeping cottage in the quaint fishing village of Neil’s Harbour

Whether you like to hike, bike, swim or relax, Neil’s Harbour has this and so much more to offer.
Hill Top Haven is within a short walking distance to a sand beach that offers both salt and fresh water swimming. A great place to chase the surf in and out looking for beach glass, a sunset walk or sitting with your toes in the sand relaxing. On your way to our 100+ year old working lighthouse you can stop at the wharf to watch the men unload their catch of the day or have a chat with some of the locals. If a quiet place for a morning coffee is needed you can sit out on your private back patio and plan your day.

The Cape Breton Highlands National Park which borders Neil’s Harbour boast beautiful hiking trails, look offs, beaches, picnic areas, and of course wild life. If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of a moose or a deer. (Park pass provided during your stay)

If you like to golf, the Highland Links the number 1 rated public golf course in Canada is only a 20 minute drive away.

COME ON ABOARD! We offer all our guest an outing on our 34ft fishing boat the” Little Miss Meghan”.(conditions permitting). Your captain (Greg) will let you experience the thrill of catching mackerel for your supper, showing you our coastline and filling you in on our history of Neil’s Harbour and the fishing industry. Enjoy the fresh salt water breeze and listen to the gulls cry over head. Maybe you will spy whales, seals, sunfish or leather back turtles.
