My husband and I drove the Cape Breton trail for our anniversary. It was a long drive, the bulk of which we did in a day. So it was nice to come to these little cottages for a night. Check in was easy and they provided us with bacon wrapped scallops as a little welcoming treat. They were delicious! Also,... More

5 star plus! What a fabulous weekend getaway! The cottage was warm, cozy and incredibly comfortable . The fireplace in the corner was a nice touch on a chilly afternoon . The view was spectacular! Our hosts Julie and Rod were so accommodating and welcoming. We felt at home! We had the most amazing gourmet dinner that was prepared by... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in October. The wheelchair accommodations were absolutely the best - beautifully decorated and very clean. Our five course meal was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The host and hostess were extremely accommodating. Upon arrival, our cottage had a bouquet of fresh flowers and champagne chilling in the fridge. Each night before... More

Stayed one night in September. Great location right on the water. Modern cabins, very nicely decorated and appointed. Small kitchen. Nice porch. Would have loved to stay a week and do the Cabot Trail from there. Wonderful garden, sheltered outdoor hot tub. Now the food: Breakfast was very good. Dinner was excellent, very special. Food quality one of the best... More

On our recent trip to Cape Breton in Nova Scotia, we had the great pleasure to stay at the Seascape Coastal Retreat. My wife and I were looking for a place that we could call our own for the 5 days we were staying in northern Cape Breton and the perfectly situated cabins of this retreat met our expectations and...

This is a gorgeous little cabin, well appointed. Great deck for sitting on overlooking the bay with a glass of wine. Hearty breakfast is provided. Also do evening meals but you have to book in advance as they only cater for a few guests. Five minute walk from a sandy beach. A bald eagle flew past the window when we... More

We had the pleasure of staying here for two nights. Location makes a great base for visiting the several Cape Breton hiking trails availalbe nearby. What a delightful, cozy cottage. Very nice to be able to use the fireplace on the cooler nights. Our host was very informative in providing information on things to do and see, and also making... More

Based on previous reviews on Trip Advisor, we chose to stay at Seascape for three nights early in October 2015. We were very pleased with our sojourn, finding Seascape an excellent base to explore Cape Breton Highland NP. Location - Seascape is conveniently located on the Cabot trail. While its ground is not as beautiful as the ground of Keltic... More

We stayed at Seascape for 4 nights, visiting Ingonish from Ontario to explore Cape Breton. First, I can't say enough about CB, I recommend it to everyone! Beautiful scenery, friendly people...a wonderful experience. The cottage was small but exactly as advertised. We stayed in #9, great ocean view, very quiet and private (per other reviews, agree totally that #8 has... More

We spent four enjoyable nights here and it turned out to be one of the highlights of our visit to Nova Scotia. We had Cabin No3, a lovely uninterrupted view of the bay, a small deck with adirondack chairs to relax on, and inside, all you need for a comfortable stay. The owners and staff could not be friendlier, and... More
