MILLION DOLLAR VIEW。 Ocean front cottages. Nestled between two mountains, the view is magnificent with cottages overlooking the harbour and ocean! Only minutes from the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, our location is perfect to enjoy all the activities that the Ingonish area is famous for. In the summer enjoy sandy beaches, swimming, golfing at the award-winning Highlands Links, hiking and tennis. Guided hiking is available for an approximately one hour hike on a private hiking trail directly across from our property. There are also whale watching tours nearby. In the winter months experience some amazing back-country skiing, wilderness snowshoeing or cross-country skiing on miles of scenic groomed trails in the highlands. Knotty Pine consists of 10 pine cottages, 4 with fireplaces, with a fabulous view overlooking Ingonish Harbour and the Atlantic ocean.

Our cottage was clean, neat and well equipped. We had a beautiful view of the harbor looking out of the windows.The people at the check-in desk were friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable and we had a good night of sleep and rest.

Our initial feeling was disappointment. There is lots of construction on the go and the views include this construction (this will eventually be a non-issue, but it would’ve been nice to have been informed of the construction). The location is great, it’s literally next to the highway and the view is beautiful. Cabins 8, 9, 9A are all one building that are segregated into different entrances. We didn’t realize this, so we ended up with loud people in 9 (kids) above our cabin. Pros: kitchen / small bbq outdoor, views from windows in kitchen, less than 10 min access to Ingonish Beach. Cons: very firm beds, bathroom door wouldn’t fully close, construction without notifying customers. We had a great time, we just felt that it wasn’t what we had expected based on their website and other reviews.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Apologies on the construction of our new to be cottages. When the landscaping is done, it will be Beautiful. We try as hard as we can to keep guests staying above our lower level cottages to be considerate of other guests. Our quiet time is at 11 and it's posted in the cottage. Unless reported we can't solve the problem. Sorry you had to experience this:(:( Kind regards.

I picked the Knotty Pines for the view and I was not disappointed ! We spent 3 nights in cottage #1, a two bedroom/3 bed cottage. The cottage is close to the road, and traffic could be heard, but I was not bothered. The cottage was clean and comfortable and had all we needed. Special thanks to the lovely lady in the office ( wish I had gotten her name) for her friendly, helpful manner

Our last-minute booking here was fantastic. The newly updated Cottage #9 sleeps 6 comfortably in the 2 rooms. The kitchen is fully stocked and the view from the balcony is gorgeous. It was an awesome base camp for our 1-night stay in Cape Breton. I wish we had more time here because the location is so handy for the Cabot Trail. The host and hostess were pleasant and accommodating. We would highly recommend staying at the Knotty Pine Cottages.
