  • A newer, very clean cabin, scenic & very quiet location.

    "We traveled from Michigan & spent a week in Sept 2016: the listing was very accurate and the log cabin was just as nice as described. It seemed huge compared to the usual B & B or hotel room and the cost was more than reasonable; we saved some money by eating breakfast there and cooked a few dinners but there is also a good restaurant / bakery fairly close by with the usual polite & friendly Nova Scotian service. You have to drive about 6 miles up a dirt road to get to the cabin but the ride is scenic; need to drive slowly around the curves but there is very little traffic ( the road dead-ends ) and the other drivers are extremely polite, as they are throughout Nova Scotia & Prince Edward Island. The owner's father lives just across the road, is very personable and friendly and came over right away to answer our questions; he built this modern cabin and it is very well-constructed and tight. It's a very safe, quiet and peaceful location. There is a beach across the road - not a " white sand " beach as we have in Michigan or Florida but we did not expect it. Well this may sound like an advertisement or that I'm related to the owner but no, I was just pleasantly surprised to see that the cabin was as good or better than described and thought I should post a review. ( Actually I should not have been surprised because the residents of Nova Scotia are still as honest, polite and genuinely friendly as they were on our first trip 13 years ago).

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay

    "The property location was wonderfully quiet and the view was fabulous. The interior was comfortable and lovely and it had all the amenities that we needed. We did have a bit of trouble running the dishwasher at first and I would suggest packing your own sharp knives but other than that the kitchen was well outfitted. We were very sad to leave and would definitely rent this property again."

  • Great stay at the Kelly's Mountain cottage!

    "Had a wonderful stay at the cottage on Kelly's mountain. The cottage was clean, comfortable and very well equipped. The owner was so helpful and informative and we enjoyed her beautiful wildlife pictures. Was only 20mins from Baddeck and great for doing day trips to the Cabot Trail and other areas of Cape Breton. Also loved the view and the beautiful fall colors. Enjoyed the baked goods and meals from the Cedar House restaurant and Fitzgeralds had very good food as well. Would definitely stay here again!"

  • Beautiful suite with a great view

    "My young family stayed at this property for 5 nights. We really enjoyed ourselves. The pictires don't do the place justice (and they are nice pictures). 10 foot ceilings, amazing view and a little kitchen that almost had everything we do at home. We were quite impressed by how well it was stocked. Richard was very friendly and helpful. Another review mentioned hearing footsteps, bugs and smoke, yes you can hear footsteps but you can't smell any smoke and there were hardly any bugs at all when we were there. The door was open for most of the time with no issues. We built a little firepit on the water and had quite a few fires. All of the firewood was provided. My kids had fun in the water and enjoyed hunting for seashells. The tides made some evenings even better when you could hear the waves crashing on the shore from the house. If you have young kids like us with an early bedtimes, you might find yourself on the pull out sofa so you can still enjoy your evening. It's as comfortable as any other pull out but I felt the waves more than made up for it. It was a very nice stay and we enjoyed it very much. Thank you!"
