Beautiful home perfect for relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the property and scenery so much. Monica was a wonderful host. The only thing "negative" is the bumpy road getting to and from the home. Our family was on the road everyday so it got tiresome but if your desire is to stay close and utilize the property and lake...its wonderful! We would certainly stay their again given the opportunity. Thanks Candace!

Beautiful, comfortable central Cape Breton location!

  • 5 of 5

We totally loved our stay in this beautiful home. For us the location was perfect. It is centrally located and having brought our motorcycles made it possible to explore all of Cape Breton on day trips. Monica next door was extremely helpful and she provided us a wealth of information. We rode the Cabot Trail on our bikes as well as rode out to Fort Louisburg. We golfed Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs and returned home to enjoy the beautiful view from this home. The waterside dock was also an enjoyable extra. We would highly recommend this home. The driveway is very steep so had difficulty pulling our large bike trailer up to the house but we were able to park it down by the road. We would definitely stay there again!

Overall, a wonderful experience. The home is beautifully kept with all of the amenities needed for a home away from home. Beautiful view of Bras d'or Lake. Owner was very attentive to all of our questions.

A well furnished, clean and bright cottage in a quiet, secluded setting - which we loved but may not be to everyone's taste. However an iron and ironing board is required.

Monica, who is the owners mother was very helpful and friendly.

Anyone wishing to dine out of an evening will need to be prepared to travel many kilometres.
