The location is perfect, the cottages are gorgeous. But... there was an infestation of houseflies, probably drawn in through poorly sealed windows or floors, that made sleeping impossible. After killing hundreds on my first morning (having spent the night sleeping under a sheet because they were crawling all over my face) I went up mid afternoon to discover that there... More

We stayed at the Spruce Cottage for 5 days with our little Silky/Maltese dog, and loved every minute. So peaceful from all the hustle and bustle of every day life. I actually had tears in my eyes when we left. We will definitely be back to this beautiful place next year for at least 2 weeks. Would highly recommend this... More

It was exactly what we needed - a quiet, picturesque break from the hustle and bustle of everyday living. The Big Hill Retreat is located about 10km from Baddeck and is a great place to... More

It never dawned on me to write a review here until today when my memories were taking me back. I stayed for a month in the "A-Cabin" the smallest of the three cabins at Big Hill Retreat from July 8 to August 8, 2011. It was perfect for a retreat for myself on Cape Breton while I researched my roots,... More

We stayed 4 nights at Big Hill Retreat in the “Log Cabin” from September 11 to September 15, 2011. Big Hill Retreat is a pet friendly accommodation. We had our cats with us and they both enjoyed the view of the highlands and couldn’t get enough of chasing each other up and down the stairs. There is enough space to... More
