We were in a 2 bedroom that had king size beds. Everything was clean and the bed was very comfortable . We were in #7 Chalet right beside the water.... More

You will not be disappointed at these chalets. They are very clean and comfortable, with a beautiful ocean view. There is no restaurant here, but there are some just a few minutes away in Chetticamp. There are bbq's at each chalet. There is a food store close by.

They maybe will put some barbecues outside, but when we stayed, there were no barbecues. Good value for money. Strong wi fi... More

Every October we take a family trip around the trail. We booked a three bedroom cottage almost two months ago. We have stayed at Pilot Whale for the past 4 years, not anymore! Upon arrival we were told our reservation was no longer available. We were left to hunt around a small community of "No Vacancy" postings. Our biggest disappointment... More

Although there are no meals included; you could stay there forever. The little basement apartment that we had was fabulous. Very clean!! Everything that you would need. Small appliances, fridge stove, bar b q etc. The girl at the front desk was very pleasant and bubbly. I would certainly recommend this place and definitely stay there again.
