Stayed here only 1 night instead of two because it was pouring but the cottage was cute, had a wonderful view of the bay and the lady at the front was very nice and accomodating. It was a big 2 bedroom cottage with tons of room 5-6 people could sleep comfortably in there!

This is charming and just as the pictures show, the beds were good not great, and the room was clean. The Wi-Fi was week, the TV did not work. I wish they had better windows or a glass door out to the water view, what a waste not to be able to enjoy this view. Walls between rooms were thin... More

These cabins are so charming! The view from the deck was absolutely incredible and can with a BBQ! They had a fire pit area and a swing set for kids! For 4 adults no problem. The rooms were comfortable and clean. I highly recommend Knotty Pines cottages!

The view was gorgeous, the kitchen was well equipped and overall the cabin was quite comfortable. The beds however, were not very good and we were disappointed that our cabin was so close to the highway.

Our family booked multiple cottages for a family gathering in July 2015. All the cottages were very clean & comfortable. It's nice to have a kitchen & Gas BBQ for the option to eat-in, and living rooms & back decks to entertain family. The owners and staff were very helpful, their convenience store is handy : ) Excellent view of... More

I had read other reviews and thought that it couldn't be true, you make a reservation and the owner/keeper changes the reservation by giving it to someone else. This happened to me for the upcoming Oct long weekend. I cancelled and fortunately was able to secure a new reservation. When I questioned the owner/keeper, they said well at least we... More

Probably the best location in the Ingonish area, these well-managed, well-kept cottages make one's vacation pleasant and unforgettable. The owners/managers are what owners and managers of tourist accommodations should be; efficient and pleasant. Jan V

We rented cottage #1 since the needed two bedrooms. It is right next to the road and traffic starts early. The kitchen is tiny and the living room furniture is old, ugly and uncomfortable. The beds and bedding were fabulous. The cabin in general needs updating. I think a ceiling of plywood screams "update me!" The patio is what saves... More
