We planned to stay here one night and ended up staying three nights. The hostess is wonderful and full of suggestions. We loved the active osprey nest and the eagles. Balcony overlooking the lake. Spacious, clean cottage. We appreciated being able to use the laundry facilities for free. Fun to follow the dog Hank in his journeys through the water.

From the moment we drove onto the property, being welcomed by "Hank the Tank", I knew this was going to be a great weekend. The main lodge itself is fantastic. The high ceilings, exposed beams and large stone fireplace make it so cozy and inviting! (The large table-sized crib board also helps). We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom... More

This was a wonderful place to stay! The owners were very friendly and helpful! It is lakefront with the most spectacular views of sunsets, eagles, hills, etc. The cottages are very well kept and very clean. We will definitely be going back there when we get to Nova Scotia again! An added bonus was they had garage storage for our... More

Yes, I did say "By the Sea" because being perched on the shores of the massive Bras D' Or Lake which is some 60 miles long feels just like being on the ocean. Each of the wonderful cottages here have occupancy for two families, one on the second floor and one on the first. They are wonderfully furnished and have... More

Sometimes you see a place advertised on the web and it looks good, only to get there and be bitterly disappointed. Well... this time it was exactly how it was described and if possible... even better. The welcome by Renie was warm and very Canadian. The quality of the two bedroomed suite was superb and fully equipped; the location of... More

If you enjoy a coffee in the morning on the porch just a few steps from the lake watching the loons fish for breakfast you'll love this facility. There are 12 beautifully appointed 2 bedroom cottages perfectly equipped so you can enjoy cooking up some local mussels. The Lodge is managed by a true gem-Renie who couldn't have made you... More

I stayed here with a large group of family members and it was just perfect! The cottages sleep 8 people downstairs and 6 people upstairs with separate kitchens and bathrooms for each unit. There is also a washer and dryer in each unit. The cottages are completely self contained, modern and very well maintained. Each cottage has the most incredible... More

Stayed here for one night, and couldn't of had a better night away!! Renie is probably the friendliest host you could ever have. She is very welcoming and sweet! She even gave us bug spray to keep the night time mosquitoes at bay as we were travelling with our newborn. The one bedroom suite itself had everything you need and... More
