“Relaxing”
Reviewed August 26, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at the 'boathouse' a cottage on the water where we could paddle for miles on Bras D'or was perfect for us. Not fancy but clean and roomy enough to be comfortable for a week. No TV, no internet and maybe the furniture was a little uncomfortable. Or maybe I just missed my recliner. If it wasn't a two day trip to get here I would visit every year.

“Great Stay and great host”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our stay with Eberhard was perfect! the cottage we stayed in was very clean and well equipped and we had only a few meters to walk to get to the lake where you can go swimming, kayaking or just relax at the beach. the nature is beautiful and there is nobody to disturb you in your peace and tranquility. Eberhard was very welcoming and helpful and always with a smile in his face.
We would totally recommend this place for couples that love nature and like to spend a few days without that usual hectic pace that you know from big cities. Thanks Eberhard, we will come back!

“Perfect family vacation!!!!”
Reviewed July 19, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

If you enjoy the sounds of nature, then this is the place for you!! The log cabins are the perfect spot for a quiet retreat and place to get away from it all. From the cozy cottage to the very private beach, it's a little piece of heaven!! Mr. Witt is a very friendly and helpful man. The cottages are very well equipped. Everything you need to enjoy your stay is provided for you. We spent a week in cottage 2, with our children ages 7 and 9. It truly was a wonderful family holiday!! We were sad to have to leave. Looking forward to returning next year!!

“A Wonderful Retreat!”
Reviewed July 13, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We really enjoyed staying in one of Eberhard's lovely cottages at Bras d'Or Lake. Especially we loved the peaceful surroundings when canoeing or kayaking on this lake with its clear water - and quite often we even could watch eagles flying by....
Eberhard, our host, was extremely friendly and helpful when we had a request.
The cabin was very clean and everything we needed was provided.
We had such a wonderful and relaxing time! That's why we plan to go there again - but next time for a longer period!

“Nice cabin awesome kayaking”
Reviewed June 29, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a great time. The cabin was very comfortable and homey, a full kitchen with all the pots and pans made staying so much easier. It was reasonable to bring the kayaks down to the lake and onto the beach. Make sure to tie the kayaks at night it gets windy. We had an awesome paddle. Eberhard was fun and helpful during our stay. A great stop on our vacation.

“Great little cottage”

great little cottage with a great host... everything you need is already there. the ocean is your backyard, there is nobody around, it is entirely private and Eberhard is very helpful in many ways. we were already talking about going back next year! my parents are also asking me about the place.

“Zen Retreat”
Reviewed January 27, 2015 for a stay in August 2014

Eberhard built this fair tale like wood cottage in the woods and about 50 yards from the private beach. We had dinners, wines and tea on the porch with the full view of the Bras d'Or Lake; and hamming birds zipping over the dining table. The everything in the cottage is spotless clean. All kitchen and bathroom supplies are well-stocked, and water and electronic equipment is perfectly functioning. Each room is fitted and decorated with comfort and taste in mind.

The view around the cottage is beautiful beyond words ( see a few samples of my pictures).

The host Eberhard always responses our emails within a day. He is extremely kind and friendly. Eberhard is very knowledgable about the areas and provides guidances when consulted. Like other guests said, Eberhard is always there when he is needed and absent when you enjoy the Lake and Island. He is an expert of Kayaking. Eberhard took my family kayaking in the Lake while eagles soaring above the blue sky. Eberhard has zen-like approach toward the material side of everything, and we feel totally relaxed just being around him.

We had best summer vacation ever. Thank you, Eberhard, for everything! We definitely will come back!
