This chalet was beautiful. Spotless with all the amenities of home. Loved the little town and were close to whale watching cruises and the National Park for Hiking. The only complaint is the towels and the pillows need to be replaced. Otherwise loved this place and the beautiful spot.

I thought the Pilot Whale Chalets were great. My husband and I stayed for a night with our 4 year-old in the Deluxe 2-Bedroom cabin. It's apparently newer - I haven't seen the others. In any case, it had two bedrooms, both with king beds and was very comfortable and clean. It also had a kitchen with a 4-person table,... More

We stayed 3 nights (me, husband, 2yo, 5yo). The location was great. It was an easy drive to restaurants in Cheticamp, and the hiking trails we wanted (Skyline, MacIntosh) were also an easy (and beautiful) drive. Their little beach was fun for the family, they had a nice selection of Dvds and they had laundry service for a fee. We... More

We had originally wanted to book at the Pilot Whale B&B but it wasn't available, but we weren't disappointed. The cabins are roomy and clean with a kitchen with all of the basics and two large rooms. The location is terrific for exploring the Cabot Trail, and it's a quick ride into Cheticamp proper for dinner. If you don't want... More

We rented a 2 bedroom chalet this time. The bathroom was large, the kitchen had everything we needed . The common area was very spacious. The view was excellent. We have stayed in the one bedroom and the three bedroom house in the past. All have exceeded expectations.

Nice clean property. Cottages are modern and pleasant. Would have liked to have been informed we were staying in a basement room with a family over head. Our view from the room was a driveway and a mound of earth, not the ocean like the pictures depict.

We booked 2 nights at the Pilot Whale Chalets in Cheticamp. We had Chalet #7, which is a 2 bedroom chalet close to the water, which provided a lot of privacy! The chalet was well laid out. Proper kitchen with fridge, stove and microwave. 2 large bedrooms with king size beds. Whirlpool bath and shower. Small bbq on the front... More

Our family of four adults enjoyed two serene days in the cabin closest to the water. It was nice to be able to walk down to a little beach to enjoy our cocktail hour. The cabin's wood interior was cozy and enhanced by a fireplace that we used on the chilly evenings. It had great amenities also like a modern... 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.
