This was our 2nd time renting this house. We rented it again for location, decor, cleanliness and the space we wanted.
The house is right on the harbor with a great deck including 4 Adirondack chairs for relaxing. Locals are so friendly that anyone taking a walk will say or wave hello. The road the house is on is great for a long walk along the ocean. I also walked 10-15 minutes to a small grocery store to pick up breakfast essentials. Remember to bring a nylon bag for groceries if you decide to walk.
The bedrooms all have numerous extra pillows and comfortable mattresses. I honestly didn’t need to buy anything for the house. All essentials well stocked (paper towels, bathroom tissue, detergent, shampoo, soap, etc...).
A nice touch is that the owner dropped off some home made caramels.
In the games living room cabinet, there are some great books about Cape Breton. I relied on the Cape Breton hiking trails book heavily to decide our hikes.
I hope to be back again in the next 2 years. I adore this quaint home on Grand Etang Harbor!
This lovely house has it all. Beautifully decorated rooms for everyone in your party with the most comfortable beds, a living rooms that feels like home, a full kitchen with everything needed to cook any meals you like including tea kettles, coffee makers and so much more! There are multiple bathrooms and one bedroom is on the ground floor - perfect for the in-laws or someone who doesn't like to climb stairs. Wake up in the morning to have coffee on the deck and watch the fishing boats come in while eating your pastries from the local bakery! We couldn't have had a more comfortable and relaxing stay! There were many shops to explore nearby and it's only minutes from amazing views and hiking trails on the Cabot Trail! Disclosure: I stayed at the inn during a writers retreat for free however all opinions in this post are my own!
Every little detail of this oceanside home is just perfect! The comfiest of beds, the decor and the well-equipped kitchen - just everything! So enjoyed our stay and look forward to going again!
We stayed one week in August at this quintessential maritime home. The house is very clean and decorated with lovely antiques and Cheticamp photos. We loved sitting on the deck every morning with our coffee and a beer in the evening. The street is quiet and there is enough action in view across the Grand Etang harbor. You can view the fisherman from afar or the buses at the museum. The local grocery store is a short walk away. My favorite part of this house is the view! The house was spacious enough for a few couples to stay.
This is a quaint maritime home with loads of character. This is one of our favorite rental experiences! I hope to be back next year!
Great picturesque location in the harbor. Perfect starting point for driving the Cabot trail. Very clean, beautifully maintained home with all the amenities. The owner Paula is very knowledgeable about the area and its history and responds quickly to enquiries by email. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend this home.
This home was absolutely beautiful and a perfect place to stay. We were running the Canot Trail Relay Race and it was exactly what we needed after a long day.
Can’t wait to stay again!
Host was awesome too!
I'm glad I booked this holiday rental it met all our expectations. My friends were happy with my choice it is in a great location, recently renovated, very clean and has everything you would need for your vacation. The owner was very prompt to reply to any questions I had would highly recommend La Belle Brise to anyone looking to vacation in Cape Breton.
