“Perfect Vacation Home...second stay”
Reviewed October 11, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Our second stay at La Belle Brise was as perfect as last year's. The home is immaculate and beautiful with wonderful views from all rooms. Located on the Old Cabot Trail on the harbour in Grand Etang, there is great walking, bicycling and kaying right out the door. The views along the Old Cabot Trail are amazing.

Also, the home is a short and pretty drive to Cheticamp for restaurants and shopping. Cheticamp is a very pretty town at the southern entrance to the National Park. After our days of hiking or biking, we coooked fish chowder (the kitchen meets all your needs), then relaxed on the deck, stargazed (we saw a bunch of shooting stars) and listened to the waves. La Belle Brise is just perfect for a wonderful vacation!

Thanks Paula!

“Best vacation home ever rented”
Reviewed June 20, 2016 for a stay in May 2016
1
person found this review helpful

From the first initial contact with Paula, the home owner, we knew we had made the best decision in renting her property. The client service was outstanding, extremely patient in answering many questions and showed extreme flexibility we required with dates as this trip was primarily scheduled due to family illness. My parents and I got to meet her in person as well and she made us feel very welcomed. The newly renovated property is so beautiful. The home is equipped with everything you need and more. We were able to cook full course meals in the kitchen, have several guests over to visit, it felt like a home away from home. Paula's decorative touches can be found in every room and bring you back in time to a fishing village, the sea etc. In fact the property faces the fishing wharf where you can see and hear one fishing boat after another leave for their catch of lobster, crab and other. When weather permits, the deck is a wonderful place to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the area along with beautiful sunsets. The beds, mattresses, pillows and beddings were as luxurious as high end Resorts. What we loved the most of this property other than having everything we needed, a beautiful picturesque location is the combination of old and new in this home. After a 10 night stay, we have absolutely NO negatives to say about the owners nor property.

“PERFECT VACATION HOME”
Reviewed October 23, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

La Belle Brise is the perfect house and location for a Cape Breton vacation. The house has been beautifully renovated. It's bright and roomy with a different, wonderful view from every window. It's well equipped with all that we needed. The colors, layout and decor make the house feel very relaxing and comfortable.
Great location, too. Biking, kayaking, hiking or just walking right out the door. Nearby Cheticamp is a pretty town with stores and restaurants to meet all needs, too. The people in the area are kind and helpful.
It was a great stay in every way. We had a wonderful time and will definitely go back!
Thanks Paula!

“Nicely renovated home in harbour side location.”
Reviewed September 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This home has been recently renovated top to bottom with wonderful results. Potentially the home has 5 bedrooms and is much roomier inside that what it may appear. Fine attention to details and lovely decorating. Beds very comfortable and multiple windows afford a nice cross breeze. Walking distance to Co-op Grocery store with extended summertime hours. Walk the old Cabot Trail from the front door. It extends along the ocean and summer fields full of wild flowers. Beautiful views of Cheticamp Island. Also, walk the old road across from the Co-op that goes up the hill for some beautiful vistas and old cow pastures. Home offers lovely sunsets and a large wrap around deck to enjoy them from.

“Perfect combination of contemporary comfort and old world charm.”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

For sheer beauty and fun, nothing beats a Cape Breton holiday, something our extended family enjoyed recently at La Belle Brise in Grand Etang. Situated on the Old Cabot Trail facing the Grand Etang harbor, this exquisitely renovated, 4-bedroom saltbox, with all the mod cons, is close to beaches, hiking, biking, music and golf, and enjoys some of the most spectacular sunsets anywhere on earth.

“Home Away from Home”
Reviewed August 25, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

It was an absolute delight to call La Belle Brise our home during our 11 day vacation in July and August. Thanks to Paula our family of 5 adults had everything we needed and lots of space to make our stay comfortable.

The owners have used their impeccable taste and skills to restore and upgrade this house to today's standards. Located in a quiet working fishing bay this impeccably clean home has 5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, laundry room, living room, a wrap around deck, bbq, satellite tv and wifi.

The breathtaking view can be seen from every window and side of the house. Beautiful beaches, villages, restaurants and shopping can be reached within a 10 minute drive.

Paula has used her artist's eye to decorate the house and furnished it with everything that we needed for our vacation from food wrap to extra towels and a kuerig coffee maker.

Don't miss out on visiting Seasonal Treasures gift shop in Cheticamp to taste some of Paula's delicious home made fudge and take home one of her beautiful paintings and other island crafted souvenirs.

I give this vacation home 6 stars out of 5!
