Cosy nook in beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

We were really comfortable at Deborah and Gary's beautifully secluded cottage by the lake. The bedrooms are a good size, the kitchen/diner large and well equipped, the living room very spacious and cosy. The cottage was immaculately clean.

A small raft ferry allowed access to a small beach which we were sadly unable to use due to blustery autumn weather conditions but on sunny days idyllic. A car is a must as the cottage is out of town and village and there is no wifi or washing machine so you must be prepared to wash by hand and use wifi in the local cafes There is a TV and DVD player.

All in all it was a lovely space to spend an autumn break close to many of the Celtic Colours folk music venues which was our main focus on Cape Breton Island. I'd have no hesitation in recommending the cottage to families and friends

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We very much appreciate your taking the time to provide us with a review, and were very happy to have you stay with us. We are so pleased you enjoyed the Celtic Colours Festival events, an exciting time to visit the Island for sure! The cottage is situated in a rural setting, located 20 minutes from the local towns and the city- so having a vehicle is good advice! Being centrally located, it is only a short drive form many of the the Island's main attractions. As advertised there is no washer/dryer on site for personal laundry , however we are pleased to provide all of our guests with laundry service for all bathroom, bedroom and kitchen linens mid week during their stay. We are also happy to report that Wi-Fi will be available to our guests in the upcoming 2017 season. Again it was a pleasure to meet you, and we hope you come and stay again, perhaps in the summer months when you can take full advantage of the beautiful beaches and sunny ,warm days!

Quiet cottage in the heart of Cape Breton Island

  • 5 of 5

A comfortable, quiet cottage in a lovely setting on Lake Bras D'Or and near North Sydney. It's central location means it is easy to visit different places on Cape Breton, such as Baddeck and the Cabot Trail.

The facilities available matched the description on the website and the directions about getting to the cottage were accurate and detailed.

The owners were really friendly and helpful.

We would happily visit it again and recommend this cottage.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I entered the cottage and both said wow! Very evident the pride Gary and Deborah have in this gem. This is truly your home away from home, immaculate and fully stocked with absolutely everything. We enjoyed a two week very relaxing stay and would happily return in future.

Wonderful Cape Breton Cottage, the perfect place for a fall visit.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was wonderful. It had everything one could want or need for a vacation place. (It was very clean and spacious!) It was also centrally located for the Celtic Colours Music Festival events we attended and was wonderful to come back to after a day of sightseeing and music. We felt very at home there. Fall in Cape Breton is a sight to behold. For us, we found beautiful fall colors everywhere, wonderful people, amazing music, a great cottage and very kind, helpful hosts. We loved it!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review.We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us and got to enjoy many of the Celtic Colour Events while here. We couldn't agree with you more, Cape Breton Island is simply magnificent in the fall. Hard to beat the beautiful colours and scenery! We hope you decide to visit again, perhaps in the summer when there are many cultural events taking place and you can enjoy many warm beach days frolicking in the crystal clear waters of the Bras'Dor Lake. It was our pleasure to meet you, we hope you return some day, you are always welcome!

Idyllic cottage

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with the cottage and its tranquil location. Boisdale is centrally located for exploring Cape Breton Island. The cottage was well equipped and nicely furnished - excellent value for money. The hosts are wonderful people and gave us plenty of great suggestions for site-seeing and activities (including kayaking, hiking, whale-watching, and sail-boating). Their small ferry across the inlet to beach was great fun, even in the rain! Overall, a fabulous and memorable holiday. Thanks very much.
