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

We stayed at the Knotty Pine Cottages while on vacation this year. And I tried to write a review on bookings.com, but there were not enough reviews for them. Which should tell you something about the Knotty Pine. When we first arrived I was surprised that they are charging $145 for a basement "deluxe" cottage. We just dropped our things... 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

Stayed here during a trip round the Cabot Trail. I did accomodations search on the net before we left Halifax. 2 nights in Cheticamp, 1 night in Dingwall, 2 nights in Ingonish. I was looking for places that allowed a dog, so the choices were limited. My first choice for the 2 nights in Ingonish was INGONISH CHALETS. They only... More

Do not stay at Knotty Pine Cottages! The cottage was dark and run down looking and very close to the road. There is a lovely view, but the window in the bedroom is the size of a postage stamp so you can't see it. There is deck on the back overlooking the lovely view, but you can't get to it... More
