I was looking for an inexpensive place to stay in Ingonish a few weekends ago and came across Knotty Pines Cottages online. Although they were further away from the center of Ingonish than I would have liked, it was still a very nice area and still only about 7 or 8 minutes away from Ingonish Beach. On the way to... More

Silverfish in the beds, toaster didn't work, tv didn't work, had to sit sideways on toilet because there's a cabinet in the way, bbq on deck shouldn't be used by humans! one chair only on deck, neighbours drunk and shouting all night. Absolutely NOT worth the money! Had to go to private home across the street to get someone to... More

My fiance and I recently returned from the Knotty Pines. After travelling the Cabot Trail all day we were referred to the Knotty Pines by locals. Upon arriving and touring the various cottages we fell in love instantly. After a short trip to pick up supplies (everything you need is within a 10 minute ride through beautiful scenery) we returned... More

When we drove up to the Knotty Pine Cottages, we were already excited about the location. Having been on the winding road that went up to peaks and down to valleys, we only hoped that our cottage was not down where we would only see trees. We were not disappointed as the view was outstanding. Although it is not a... More

I just recently stayed at these cottages in July 2013. Before booking I read the reviews to ensure it was a reputable place. Unfortunately the reviews were very negative and I almost cancelled my booking. Very happy I made the decision to stick with it. It's a cottage... Not sure what folks are expecting but I was very pleased. The... More

I am not sure why there are any bad reviews on these cottages. We recently spent two nights in one and I have no complaints whatsoever. It was clean, well kept and the staff was friendly. There was a decent sized bedroom, small kitchen table, a futon as well as satellite tv. The bathroom was a little small, but we... More

The cabin we stayed in should not even be allowed to be rented but it was and cost $129.oo per night. The cabin is so tiny without any amenities. It advertises as housekeeping and yet there is no sink except the little one in the bathroom. The deck is falling apart and the wood is rotten. The barbeque is antique.... More

We are a family of four. We stayed here for one night during a trip around the Cabot Trail. We were in the cottage literally right beside the road. We slept extremely well. It was very quiet. Very little traffic. There was two separate bedrooms. Comfy beds. The kids had there own bedroom which was lovely. The fireplace was wonderful.... More

Before booking out cootage, I called and asked what cottages were avaliable/ if any were newer or updated. I was told that the cottage I was booking was a 2 bedroom with spa tub, fireplace and cable. Spa tub ? No. A single person couldn't even soak in that tub if they wanted to. It was the summer so we... More
