We stayed at Lighthouse Cottages for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The cottages were clean and comfortable, the picnic table and outside chairs were a nice touch too! The beach at our finger tips and the incredible sunsets set the backdrop for the view from the cottages. Porthood and Mabou were a short drive away where there... More

What a find! We stayed at cottage #10 - very clean and comfortable. Great big deck overlooking the dunes, Port Hood Island and the sea - and sunsets. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Beautiful sandy beach a 5 min. walk from cottage - swimmable, weather permitting. We would definitely stay there again if we come back to NS. The... More

We have stayed at Lighthouse Cottages on multiple occasions, while attending the Celtic Colours International Music Festival. The accommodations are well equipped and clean and the staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. The cottages are located right on water with a sandy beach and the sunsets can be spectacular. We can highly recommend Lighthouse Cottages for your stay in... More

Serene setting with spectacular views and unbelievable sunsets. Cottage (we stayed in #9) was clean and well appointed. Any extras required were quickly seen to by owner Rachel. Less than 1 hour from the causeway - approximately 1 hour to Baddeck. Groceries, restaurants and liquor store all very close by. Beautiful beach - water was still warm enough to swim... More

We have stayed all over Cape Breton Island. This is by far my most favourite place. The only disappointment I have is that I didn't know about this place only for the sign on the side of the road. I had searched the internet for 3 weeks for accommodations in Cape Breton, and not once did I see this listed.... More

We have stayed at the Lighthouse Cottages for a week during the last few years. We love the serenity, and the view from the front stoop is amazing. The cottages are clean and equipped with everything necessary for a stay at a cottage, and if by chance anything is missing, the owners are very happy to correct the situation. My... More

My wife and I have stayed at the "lighthouse cottages" in Port Hood, Cape Breton on several separate occasions. We wished we could have spent more time there. The grounds were very well maintained and staff very kind. The cottages were well looked after with 2 bedrooms, bathroom and a good sized kitchen-living area. All the cottages faced the sea,...

I travelled to Port Hood in Sept of this year for my good friends wedding. I travelled with my boyfriend, my cousin her husband and their 3 year old and 3 week old. Needless to say we were very dissatisfied with this accommodation. Cottages: very small and basic. It was more like a hotel than a cottage. We fit the... More

We stayed in one of the Lighthouse Cottages in early October. Our cottage was extremely clean and the view of the bay and sunset was great. The rooms were so clean they looked freshly painted. The woman at the front desk--the owner I believe--was pleasant and very helpful. As it was near the end of the season and we were... More
