Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Kevin,

We really had a great stay at your cottage the past 5 days. We thoroughly enjoyed the privacy and scenery - the views from the cottage were amazing! I had a chat with your neighbor yesterday, he said he mows the lawn. He was very friendly and I enjoyed our conversation. Today before we left we made certain all the sheets were washed and left the cottage neat and tidy like it was when we arrived. The keys were left on the table and the door was open. If there is availability next year summer, you'll be hearing from us again. :) Thanks again!

Peace & Comfort

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at the cottage and the view was spectacular from the deck. A very relaxing place and central to many of Cape Breton's tourist sites. We spent lots of time on the beach picking and skipping stones and also went to the sandy beach in Iona which was only 5 minutes down the road.

The cottage was fully equipped and very comfortable. We particularly liked the Celtic fire pot on the outside patio.

Peace and Comfort in Iona

  • 5 of 5

What I liked the most was the Incredible view that took our breath away when we arrived.

The name describes it the best "peace and comfort"

It was easy to find the cottage thanks to detailed instructions.

Relaxation at its best!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage for a week the end of September. Very relaxing and beautiful views. This cottage was located in the center of Cape Breton. Bras d'ors Lake is beautiful and beach access is a short distance to get to to walk the beach and collect unusual rocks. We enjoyed the Cabot Trail, Heritage Village, the Gaelic College, Gaelic music and just driving around the area.

Tranquility at it's best!

  • 5 of 5

Peace and Comfort other words could best describe it! Such a beautiful setting on Bras d'ors Lake...and the cottage was everything we could have asked for. Clean, well appointed! The views were to die for. Definitely a place we recommend, and hope to return someday!

a Pleasure

  • 5 of 5

Everything was great,

we missed nothing.

Peace an Harmonie!

Es war ein traumhafter Urlaub einfach toll,

der Blick, die Ruhe, einfach alles!

Leider waren wir im Mai ein wenig ausserhalb der Saison,

deshalb waren noch viele AKtivitäten nicht möglich!

Bell Museum, oder Restaurants!

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here in August 2014 and it is everything it looks like in the pictures. HEAVEN. This beautifully appointed property is so secluded and private, it's the perfect getaway if you want some serenity, while getting to appreciate the beautiful landscape and mountains that surround you in the heart of Cape Breton. We sat on the covered veranda everyday, even if it was raining and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet, overlooking the beautiful Bras D'or Lakes. The lakes are crystal clear and super for not only swimming but for the skin as they are salt water. Simply pristine! The beach we used is a short walk from the property with a path that leads you directly to waterfront. The cottage has everything you need and more. It's beautifully decorated with all amenities needed and it sits on 8 cleared acres, all for your enjoyment (our dog loved it also). We cannot wait to go back this August! It truly is one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had and are looking forward to our next visit. Kevin is extremely accommodating and a joy to deal with. You can't go wrong with this place if you're looking for something truly special.
