                                                          Comfy family cottage!

                                                          Kelly M.Oakville, Ontario, CANADA

                                                          We enjoyed our stay very much, appreciating the peaceful views off the back deck and comfortable accommodation. There was not one household item that we were in need of that was not available at the home. The cottage was in reasonable proximity to the downtown, the beach, Cabot Cliffs, Cabot Trail and Highlands National Park- all enjoyed by our family of four. The home was roomy enough for our two teens to carve out their own space and allowed for a comfortable reprieve after busy days out enjoying Cape Breton. Comfy, clean and relaxing. For Canadians: Note that fees are in US on this site. It does not covert like Airbnb so that caught us a bit off guard.

                                                          Loved it!

                                                          Brenda B.

                                                          The property & house was beautiful! Secluded but close enough to town. We had a wonderful time!

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves and you will come back to Cape Breton soon:)

                                                          Great property

                                                          Wonderful Location, great house.

                                                          Beautiful location comfortable and spacious house

                                                          steve b.

                                                          We had a wonderful stay.

                                                          It is a very comfortable spacious house. Very private and yes beautiful sunsets over the water from the large wrap around deck, or through the wall of windows and the glass door. Conveniently located near the town of Inverness and some of the finest beaches. loved it

                                                          Great Location

                                                          Scott S.

                                                          We enjoyed our stay at Paul's Perch. The house is well built and and very clean. We had plenty of towels and just enough room for 4 golfers (3 bedrooms so 2 have to share a bedroom). The location (8 min) from Cabot was the main reason we chose this property. The owners respond promptly to text/email and were a pleasure to deal with. The only knock would be that there is no TV, but that did enable us to tell old stories to pass the time. I would definitely recommend Paul's Perch.

                                                          Great spot, accommodating and clean

                                                          Derek B.

                                                          We would have hoped for bigger beds and closer to the water but other than that it was great.
