You will not be disappointed. Even if you were the pickiest person in the world you would have trouble finding a bad thing to say about this place. An absolute gem for sure! Beautiful location! Cottages were stunning! Clean, very well equipped and maintained! The minute I got there I was sad I would have to leave! The lodge was... More

This was a wonderful place to stay! The owners were very friendly and helpful! It is lakefront with the most spectacular views of sunsets, eagles, hills, etc. The cottages are very well kept and very clean. We will definitely be going back there when we get to Nova Scotia again! An added bonus was they had garage storage for our... More

Yes, I did say "By the Sea" because being perched on the shores of the massive Bras D' Or Lake which is some 60 miles long feels just like being on the ocean. Each of the wonderful cottages here have occupancy for two families, one on the second floor and one on the first. They are wonderfully furnished and have... More

Sometimes you see a place advertised on the web and it looks good, only to get there and be bitterly disappointed. Well... this time it was exactly how it was described and if possible... even better. The welcome by Renie was warm and very Canadian. The quality of the two bedroomed suite was superb and fully equipped; the location of... More

If you enjoy a coffee in the morning on the porch just a few steps from the lake watching the loons fish for breakfast you'll love this facility. There are 12 beautifully appointed 2 bedroom cottages perfectly equipped so you can enjoy cooking up some local mussels. The Lodge is managed by a true gem-Renie who couldn't have made you... More

I stayed here with a large group of family members and it was just perfect! The cottages sleep 8 people downstairs and 6 people upstairs with separate kitchens and bathrooms for each unit. There is also a washer and dryer in each unit. The cottages are completely self contained, modern and very well maintained. Each cottage has the most incredible... More

Stayed here for one night, and couldn't of had a better night away!! Renie is probably the friendliest host you could ever have. She is very welcoming and sweet! She even gave us bug spray to keep the night time mosquitoes at bay as we were travelling with our newborn. The one bedroom suite itself had everything you need and... More

We stayed here 4 nights and found it to be an excellent, central location for our activities on Cape Breton such as the Glenora Distillery, Fortress of Louisbourg, Bras D'Or lakes region, and the Cabot Trail . Besides the location we simply loved the clean and modern apartment we had. A full kitchen, living room with gas fireplace, and porch... More

Although still about 1 hour south of the Cape Breton National Park East entrance, we situated ourselves just below the Cabot Trail loop that connects to the east and west entrances to the park. There was a lot of road construction on the east side so we were using the west entrance. The cottages are right on the water in... More
