  • Comfortable house with plenty of space and everything you need! Beautiful view across the water.

    "This is a very comfortable house with a lot of space to spread out. Fully equipped kitchen and a gorgeous view across the water. The owner is very friendly and gave us lots of information about the area. Easy driving to beaches, towns, and all the sites. Couldn't have been better!"

  • Peaceful Retreat

    "We stayed here in early April for a geocaching getaway to explore Nova Scotia. Knowing the weather could be iffy this time of year, I wanted a peaceful place on the ocean with a fireplace for cozy evenings even if the wind was howling outside. This place fit the bill perfectly and Bill provided us with ample logs. Thankfully the fireplace was easy to use. It is a beautiful home in a peaceful location and even though neighbours aren't that far away (if needed) you'd never know it - perfect for what we were looking for. To get to this secluded location in a gated community, you need to travel approx 4 km down gravel roads. We especially enjoyed returning around dusk because there was lots of wildlife we encountered on these quiet country roads. We saw deer, porcupine and even a ruffed grouse showing off in hopes of attracting a mate. We also enjoyed evening walks along the quiet country road. Bill was great to deal with and even when we encountered a misunderstanding, he was quick to make it right. He is trusting, welcoming and helpful and we appreciated the special touch of flowers, chocolate and wine welcoming us upon arrival. Kudos to his cleaning staff (he told us who does his cleaning but that's our little secret :)) who make sure the place is spic and span. We really enjoyed our time here and wouldn't hesitate to return."

  • Outstanding Home - Highly Recommended

    "In four years living in the United States we have been fortunate enough to stay in a number of great holiday rentals across North America. However, this house was, by a very long way, the best. What made it so special? Firstly, the location. It sits on a small hill, away from the minor access road, with magnificent views over the river and out to sea. It is a short drive from Mahone Bay shops. You therefore have the convenience of the (really interesting and charming) town without any of the traffic. Secondly, the house. It has real character. You feel as though you are living in history. It is extremely clean and very well equipped. You will not want for anything. The beds are super comfortable and, combined with the silence, you will sleep really well. Thirdly, the things to do. There is a canoe and rowing boat on a quay just down from the house. If you don’t want to go out on the boats you can sit on the quay and toes the sun going down with a glass of wine. There is a very large garden and a great walking trail next door. Finally, the people. Meg and Paul are very generous and very interesting hosts. They will make you feel very welcome. In summary, this is an extraordinary holiday home located in a beautiful part of the world. It is highly recommended. We certainly cannot wait to go back."

  • Soul-nurturing home and location

    "While the remoteness and quietness may not be for all, for aging campers who remember and crave what it's like to be immersed in a life of stars, moonrises, sunrises, and sparkling water views, almost (not quite) off grid and with lots of hiking nearby...well, Top of the World takes it up a notch and gives you all the comforts of home as well. My only warning for my age cohorts is the bedrooms are upstairs and the bathroom is downstairs. Good lighting (the owners have all the details covered), but not the easiest stairs...you have to fully wake up for them. And to the discerning city-dwelling cook...while you'll be happy with the kitchen, you may not be happy with the grocery stores (or prices) of Northern Cape Breton. Do all the grocery shopping you can before you hit the Cabot Trail. Bring a big cooler...it's a good 3 + hrs to Capstick after the last big stores. As it must be for a place this special!"
