Great to have washer & dryer in the cottage. Very clean, comfortable and very nicely furnished. Sectional couch makes lots of room for seating in the livingroom and is so comfy. Found it to be a very homey place to stay!

a great 'home away from home'

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week at Bayview Cottage and having a 'home' to come to with our fridge stocked and everything we needed, we had a great vacation. The cottage is well equipped with everything you need, right down to the lobster utensils! Being able to cook our own meals and take our time in the morning was a luxury.

The view is great, the beach just down the street is lovely and the village of Port Hood is very quaint.

Perfect little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience during the Celtic Colours week in October. The cottage had everything we needed to relax and enjoy the area. Super clean, very cozy, has the feel of visiting your family at the seashore. One of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had. Really a great value, for less than the cost of a typical hotel room, we enjoyed a full kitchen, comfortable living room, two bedrooms & a bath. Large HDTV with DVD player was nice to come home to after a long day of sight-seeing. Highly recommend!

Relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Bayview. The cottage is very neat and clean. The kitchen was very well stocked with all you would need to prepare meals. There was a nice patio ,bbq and lawn chairs at the side of the cottage. The beds were very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this cottage.
