Spent 8 nights in the cozy "A" cabin down its own lovely, twisty drive and loved every minute of my stay. The cabin is perfectly designed with big windows letting in the light and view that stretches forever over the forests to the north. The porch a perfect place for a glass of wine and pondering...the little loft and comfortable... More

Excellent romantic weekend! Quiet, pristine and beautifully crafted log cabins - especially the Spruce cabin. Only recommendations? You need an SUV or some type of 4 wheel drive... More

We were so happy to find a nice quite place to stay for a week after having some terrible weeks. The way to the Retreat is very long and the road is filled with potholes. Good we had an SUV. The Retreat didn't looked like the pictures, but first I thought, well its October. The host was not super friendly,... 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
