We chose a unit closest to the water for the view. Because of price we chose a lower unit... Based on some previous Trip Advisor reviews, we were nervous because of the possible noise from the upper unit but the sound insulation is pretty good. The unit was furnished with a kitchenette and full bath. Basic kitchenware available to use.... More

We stayed in Cabin #1 -- we had two bedrooms, kitchen, and bathroom. We had a great view of the National Park, and although we couldn't see the water, it was fairly close by. The cabin was clean and comfortable. All the necessities were provided, which was very convenient. We were on top of the communal laundry suite, so we... More

We had a lovely stay here. Folks at the office were very helpful in pointing us in the direction of restaurants with live music and other places of interest in Chetticamp. The porch was a delight in the evenings and all the appliances in bath and kitchen worked well. Morning walks on quiet roads on the edge of town lined... More

Booking Pilot Whale was a late decision but one which we don't regret. It was right on the Cabot Trail, in Cheticamp, and a short drive to where we wanted to be: the Highlands National Park and Pleasant Bay Whale Watch. We were also close to the community and gave us the chance to interact with them at the nearby... More

We shared their 3 bedroom, two bathroom home with friends. The house is nicely furnished, with a full kitchen and screened windows. But there is NO A/C. We experienced very warm and very rainy/humid weather. Even with the ceiling fans twirling, we felt sticky most of the time. We made good use of the washer and dryer. Only one of... More

Spent 2 nights in these wonderful chalets for an end of summer getaway. There were 5 couples and we rented a 2 bedroom and a 3 bedroom chalet. Wonderful, quiet spot! Very clean with all the luxuries of home! Close to a beach and could not have asked for anything better. Will definitely return. Great spot for a family getaway!

Small private pebble beach just out front of our chalet and down a path with a set of wooden stairs.Staff are very friendly and helpful.Can be very windy.

We made a reservation to join other family members also staying here. The day after making our reservation with a lovely lady, I was contacted by a very rude lady telling me that the lady I spoke to the night before basically didn't know what she was doing and booked my family of four in a suite that couldn't accommodate...

This chalet was beautiful. Spotless with all the amenities of home. Loved the little town and were close to whale watching cruises and the National Park for Hiking. The only complaint is the towels and the pillows need to be replaced. Otherwise loved this place and the beautiful spot.
