Lighthouse Road

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this house, both as a point to launch from for our trips to Cape Breton, Halifax, and St. Francis Xavier University, and as a place of rest after long days of hiking, fishing, bird watching, and exploring. The views are spectacular and ever-changing. We began and ended our days at the lighthouse; coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. The house itself was clean, well appointed, and provided both an accommodating gathering space and private spaces. We also used the outside fire pit and gazed at the stars. Thank you for sharing your house!

Fresh, clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful at this cozy cottage situated with a view of the ocean in the distance and a stone's throw to Cape George's lighthouse. The property was very clean and everything inside was new. We loved it and will recommend to friends and family. Many thanks Nigel and Rhonda.

Lightjhouse Cottage - wonderful gem

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent a very pleasant week. with the Lighthouse Cottage our base for daily visits to nearby scenic sites. From the spacious living room we were always aware of the Atlantic Ocean. The drive to Antigonish provided many opportunities for spectacular photography. Your lovely furnished Cottage became our sanctuary after a busy day sight-seeing. Thanks for shareing your property.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Just came back from Antigonish, NS.

We had a fabulous vacation.

My husband and I stayed at this home with my sister and brother-in-law.

Two bedrooms. Two bathrooms. We never got in each other's way.

All basics provided.

As stated in description, 2 minute walk from lighthouse.

You do need to arrive at this home with all the staples you require including gas in your car.

The home is 30-40 minutes from town. No gas station or convenience store between house and town.

I recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice quiet vacation and anyone who likes to take rides and enjoy scenery.

Loved Nova Scotia!

breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing and enjoyable stay at the cottage. Not being familiar with the area, it was more remote than expected. We were glad to have taken some groceries with us for our first day.

The view from the deck is amazing and peaceful. We bundled up and sat there as much as possible though it was extremely windy and chilly.

We enjoyed the Cape Breton area and the town of Antigonish, which was a good30-40 minute drive.

Would love kayak info mentioned in review above as that was something we searched for.

Would love to return one day.
