Our stay was awful, "deluxe cottage" was a crappy building broke into 5 run down filthy rooms. So close to.the highway that you are woken everytime someone drive by. Bathroom floor peeling up, "playground" was a rusted old swing set that I wouldn't let my kids near. The view from the deck was nice but to stay in a cottage... More

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. These reviews are extremely important to us. When problems are not addressed during your stay, there is nothing we can do. We have an area where you can have a bonfire so we are not sure why that statement was made. We apologise that your vacation was ruined. If there... More

A nice clean cottage with an awsome view right from your deck! It is a few miles from town but because of that it is very quiet at night. The cottages are fully equipped and in good condition,the only shortcoming was the bathroom,a bit small and could use a little redo. We found the service excellent and friendly! Would stay... More

I am seriously puzzled by the negative reviews. I am very familiar with the Ingonish area and Knotty Pines is my absolute favourite place to stay. We checked in this afternoon and, once again, I was not disappointed. We have perhaps the most beautiful view in the world from our deck, which is well equipped with chairs and even a... More

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...

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
