We had a very unfortunate experience here. We were very pleased when we checked into our one-bedroom suite with an ocean view. It was clean and spacious. We went to dinner and when we returned, we noticed a few (apparently) dead insects on the floor. We disposed of them without a lot of concern. The next morning however, there were... More

While the Chalets were wonderful (and the one we were in was absolutely beautiful), I was really disappointed that we were not on the ocean. I was told that the first 6 Chalets were reserved for website bookings and that if we wanted a view on the ocean we needed to call Pilot Whale directly. (Units 1 through 6 are... More

This B & B was ideally located very near the town of Cheticamp. Our room was large and very comfortable. Owners were very friendly, knowledgeable about the area, and made us feel very comfortable. They also suggested several places for us to visit that we would not have know about otherwise. Breakfast was simply delicious. If you are in the... More

We stayed in a two-bedroomed chalet, which was clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The kitchen was fully equipped for anyone who wished to cook with a dishwasher also. It is a good location/base for doing the nearby sky trail. Would highly recommend.

The property has several chalets and the three-bedroom house. The house is sized for a large group or family. It is located a short walking distance from the ocean. The rooms are very clean and airy. Fallon, the receptionist, is helpful and friendly.

This was just perfect for our needs. We were 2 couples who needed a place with a full kitchen, located on the Cabot Trail. These chalets fit the bill: clean, comfortable, well equipped and just a stroll to the water. Wish we could have stayed longer to make use of all the amenities, like the wood-burning stove and bbq.

I called to reserve a chalet based on the photos on the Pilot Whale Chalet website. Although they did mention we would be the chalet by the road, what they didn't tell us is that we weren't renting the chalet. When we arrive we found out there is a basement room under the chalet and that is where our accommodations... More

Our 2-bedroom chalet is very spacious and clean. There's nothing to complain except for the unstable internet signal. The location is also very convenient, close to the township from where we took the whale watching cruise and visited the restaurant/gas station. From here to skyline trail is about 20 minutes driving which perfect for us to do it on early... More
