A waterside cottage with two bedrooms, two canoes and an airy screen porch.

We live in Washington DC, a mile from the Capitol and 20 hours drive from South Harbour. But we fell in love with Cape Breton, and this house, on our first visit. So the rest is history.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Owner chose Victoria Subd. A
Friends invited us up in August of 2015 and this house was available for rent. It was also for sale. After four days we realized it had to be a part of every summer, and the entire family, so we took the leap. South Harbour and Aspy Bay are pretty far from the rest of the world, which is precisely what makes the setting so potent. All distance is paid back in equal wonder.
What makes this Cottage unique
For unspoiled beauty and sheer diversity of activities, there are few spots on earth that can rival the outer end of Cape Breton and Aspy Bay in particular. We're located at the heart of all that.

A wonderful retreat
This property is one of my favourites. It was comfortable, well equipped and and excellent location for hiking the trails. It is situated so the view of the bay is stunning. I was able to watch the sun come up and the sun go down as I had my meal. It was an inviting and relaxing spot to return to at the end of my day.
Great place, with personality!
Quiet, beautiful spot! Friendly area. We enjoyed sunrises, canoeing, and puzzles. We really appreciated the home feeling, with lots of books, games, and everything one would need. Bed was a little hard, could use a foam topper. We had a small problem with a doorknob malfunction, but Neil got it taken care of right away. We'll do this one again!
We loved the quiet location on South Harbor, the cottage was cozy and the views out every window were inspiring!
What a wonderful place!
We had a great stay at this beautiful cottage. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer! The cottage is clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. We appreciated having the canoes available and the harbor is a lovely place to paddle around. The views from the home are just amazing. There are many wonderful hiking trails within a short drive and spectacular scenery everywhere. We loved Cape Breton and can't wait to return. Neil was a great host and responded quickly to any questions that we had.
Another Wonderful Week in Dingwall Cottage
Second annual week at Cottage was just as I remembered from 2018. Blueberries, Great Blue Heron, Eagles and Mergansers in a beautiful setting. Cottage itself is very well organized and relaxing especially the Outdoor Shower. We hiked Skyline, The Bog, Middle Head and Cabot Landing Provincial Park with its 3.5 km of beach! A minor unexpected glitch when we arrived, was handled quickly by Property Manager. Already considering a return visit in 2020!
