These are siimple but adequate and comfortable cottages on the edge of the shore on Cape Breton. We stayed three nights in June, and enjoyed sunsets, sky, and peacefulness. They provided us with a gas barbeque for our stay, and we used it every night for dinner. The cottages are basic, but the price reflects that. Ten km further down... More

We drove into Nova Scotia without reservations and happened on a "vacancy" sign at these cottages. What a great choice! The cottage feels like home (we even extended our stay), Rachel in the office is warm and welcoming, and the view is absolutely incredible! The décor is totally in keeping with a comfortable, home-y, family atmosphere.

These cottages are very basic but would be great for a family week at the beach.Their no pet policy seemed ridiculous as there was nothing in the cottage a dog could harm and besides people who travel with their dogs are used to paying a pet fee and in most cases take better care of their dogs than a lot...

The location was amazing with a view over the Gulf of St. Lawrence. The cottages are very plain and simple. This place seems lost in a time warp. The water is warm, clear, and only a few steps from the door!

Delightful location and simple but comfortable cottage (2 bedrooms, 1 queen and 1 double). Cottage has everything - including a large can of coffee - and if you it's not here they have it at the front desk. View is incredible and location is perfect for spending a couple of days (or more) riding or hiking the Celtic Shores Trail... More

We stayed at Lighthouse Cottages for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay very much. The cottages were clean and comfortable, the picnic table and outside chairs were a nice touch too! The beach at our finger tips and the incredible sunsets set the backdrop for the view from the cottages. Porthood and Mabou were a short drive away where there... More

What a find! We stayed at cottage #10 - very clean and comfortable. Great big deck overlooking the dunes, Port Hood Island and the sea - and sunsets. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Beautiful sandy beach a 5 min. walk from cottage - swimmable, weather permitting. We would definitely stay there again if we come back to NS. The... More

We have stayed at Lighthouse Cottages on multiple occasions, while attending the Celtic Colours International Music Festival. The accommodations are well equipped and clean and the staff couldn't be more friendly and helpful. The cottages are located right on water with a sandy beach and the sunsets can be spectacular. We can highly recommend Lighthouse Cottages for your stay in... More

Serene setting with spectacular views and unbelievable sunsets. Cottage (we stayed in #9) was clean and well appointed. Any extras required were quickly seen to by owner Rachel. Less than 1 hour from the causeway - approximately 1 hour to Baddeck. Groceries, restaurants and liquor store all very close by. Beautiful beach - water was still warm enough to swim... More

We have stayed all over Cape Breton Island. This is by far my most favourite place. The only disappointment I have is that I didn't know about this place only for the sign on the side of the road. I had searched the internet for 3 weeks for accommodations in Cape Breton, and not once did I see this listed.... More
