we arrived late in the evening so retired to bed straight away. Rising in the morning we were greeted by the amazing view, chalet 8, is awesome. The setting is fantastic, the chalet is small but perfect and has everything you need. Can only hope that I am lucky enough to return.

Smallish cottage right on the edge of Ingonish Beach. In very good condition and clean. Had a small fridge with sink and micro. The bathroom was large and everything worked well. You are able to walk down to the beach but it is very rocky. If you stay up at the cottage and sit on the deck there is a... More

Nice, neat little cottages on a cliff overlooking Ingonish Beach, Nova Scotia. Stayed 3 nights while touring the Cabot Trail. Excellent breakfast included and outstanding dinners on the nights when dinner is available. Free canapes delivered to your cottage every afternoon around the cocktail hour.

Just spent a great couple of days at Seascape. We loved our cottage, it had everything you might need and was set on the coast with breathtaking views of the ocean and just a stroll to the beach. Breakfast and dinner were excellent - really recommend dining in, the food was unbelievably good. Best of all was the warm welcome... More

We spent five nights here and it was not long enough! The cottages are very comfortable, with a lovely view over the bay to Middle Head and Cape Smoky. A short walk over the rocky beach in front of the cottages takes you to a sandy beach, perfect for swimming. The water is not too cold, but cold enough that... More

We were very happy with our cottage here, which was updated and crisp, clean, and had the amenities that we needed. The view is fantastic. Breakfast is very good, and don't miss the opportunity to order a dinner -- ours was wonderful. The location is just a few minutes south of Cape Breton National Park.

The beautiful country of Nova Scotia is enhanced greatly by places like the Seascape Coastal Retreat. We were so happy to be here for two nights as it was so very down to earth and the cottages were immaculate and the bed extremely comfortable. The hosts were incredibly friendly and very very helpful. We loved the fantastic views, the friendly... More

We were looking to sample a little taste of Canada and Seascapes certainly provided us with a wonderful place from which to explore. The staff were extremely helpful with useful tips on places to visit which truly helped to make the most of our stay. Spectacular coast line to beautiful wilderness walks, private picnics and swimming in a lake. What... More

Seascape is a bit pricey but not as pricey as the much acclaimed Keltic lodge. Seascape is a much more personalized experience, every cabin is right on the water with views.....We would recommend trying to book the cabins that are further from the road as the first two can be a bit noisy....Otherwise, wonderful place to stay, breakfast was delicious...

The views were incredible at this beach cottage. The hosts could not do enough for you. The breakfast and dinner were lovely! Great location...convenient to the park, and quaint shops. The rooms were a bit dated, but cozy. The AC didn't work very well.
