Why Allison Barron chose Nova Scotia

This property was family owned by my grandparents and aunt. She then gave the property to myself and family to keep going for generations to come. The property is in a peaceful, tranquil area with the sounds of birds chirping with views of the water. Short driving distances to the beaches, basketball play ground and hiking trails.

Peaceful and relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

My family (2 adults, two early teens) recently spent 3 days at MacIntosh Cottage. The property is immaculate, and well-stocked with everything we needed. The enclosed deck was great for breakfast, over-looking the ocean, while our evenings were spent watching movies and the Olympics in the comfortable living room space. The cottage is well situated for explorations of the Cabot Trail in both directions. I would definitely recommend MacIntosh Cottage to anyone looking to spend a few relaxing days in this area.

beautiful seaview

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was very cozy and homelike, much better than a hotel, with nice touches like a water cooler, soap for the laundry and dishes available. The downstairs living area was tastefully painted and furnished. Games and tv were available as well.

The location was perfect for the hikes off the Cabot Trail, as well as finding several good restaurants. One comment: the bedrooms were upstairs, and since the eaves were steep, you had to duck your head at the top of the stairs-and we aren't very tall! There is a house below this one, but the neighbors were quiet and the views of the bay were still quite fine.

Peaceful Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Cape Breton. Nice cozy place by the ocean on a quiet road and with quiet neighbours. Close to the best parts of the Cabot Trail. There's also a small food store nearby for essentials as well as restaurants. We loved having breakfast in the gazebo each morning. We would definately go back to this cottage! Thanks again Allison!

Wonderful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I experienced such a deep peace at the MacIntosh Cottage. Waking up looking out over the ocean and mountains, and with a gentle quiet of the protective mountains behind. I experienced the full moon with a perfectly clear sky and spent time wandering nearby beaches and coves and communing with eagles at the magical White Point. The MacIntosh Cottage gives you a place aside from the "tourist hubs" and ever popular trailheads, and yet is an easy drive to reach them. Spectacular drives over North Mountain and Smokey Mountain in either direction, and also out to Meat Cove. No words can describe the grandeur of these places. I will be returning every year for my own personal retreat and time out, and for much longer next time. Thank you to Allison and Greg for making this available.
