Beautiful, Clean, well equipped and very comfortable. We recently stayed at the cottages, and we're treated to much more than we were expecting. A quiet area along the Bra'dor Lakes, known for cottage country, boating, scenic drives, and of course Celtic music! We were attending a wedding in the area and the location seemed to be the best. We hit... More

The cabins are very, very nice with all amenities. Much nicer than a lot of 4-5 star resorts I have stayed at and they were cheaper! We were very pleased to have found the cottages and were very surprised at how nice they were when we arrived. When we checked in and paid we were not told very much other... More

We stayed here for a family function this summer and the cabin was pretty nice. We stayed in cabin #5 it had a full kitchen, couch, gas fireplace, full bath, and two bedrooms (three beds). There was a tv and satellite service so there were options. Also, there were washing machines and dryers as well, no additional cost; nice touch.... More

At the end of our trip to Cape Breton, we decided to stay at Big Pond Housekeeping Cottages despite the lousy name and the unappealing website. The only thing we knew about Big Pond is that Rita McNeil was born here and that it was on Bras D'Or Lake, which we wanted to explore. It ended up being the best... More
