“Beautiful location & friendly host”
Reviewed September 3, 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We really enjoyed our stay here! The log cabin was exactly what we were looking for and we would have considered an extension of our stay if other plans had not already existed. We were even able to do our laundry here, something we needed desperately after being on the road for three weeks, and the hostess actually folded our clothes for us! As for activities, Cape Breton Highlands National Park is stunningly beautiful. We also went on a cruise to see whales.

“Peace and quiet after a day on Motorcycling”
Reviewed September 13, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

well maintained, Quiet cabins located close to the Canso Causeway. The driveway can be tricky for an inexperienced motorcyclist as it is all gravel with a long winding driveway. I would recommend parking at the check in area and walking up to cabins as they are close.

“Very Clean - Well outfitted”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed in August with 14, 16 year old boys and a 19 year old daughter. We found our host very gracious and accommodating. The cabin was very clean and had all of the amenities we needed. We rent a cottage every year in Ontario and we always take our own items as what they provide is less then clean. We called Cajun Cedar ahead and were assured everything we needed would be there. We were not disappointed. Lots of clean towels for the week. Bedding was very nice. Kitchen utensils clean and newer. Very enjoyable. Only knock would be it was really hot the week we stayed and there wasn't air-conditioning. However the host made sure our fans were working. She mentioned they would be getting air in the near future. Would book here again for sure!

“Loved our stay here.”
Reviewed September 21, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

These cabins are great. So clean and inviting. Sometimes it is hard to find a place so great that will accomodate our dog. Great location, we did some fly fishing along the river they are very close to some great pools. We will definitely stay here again for our next fishing trip. Super friendly and helpful owner. Thanks!!

I was just going through my reviews and noticed i hadn't responded to yours. Thank you for the wonderful review. We have since made changes to the cottages. We have all new queen size beds, new windows and doors, air conditioning, flat screen tv on the wall. Hope to see you all again some time.

person found this review helpful

Our family of four stayed in two of the single cottages for most of a week and it was a great choice: a lovely setting right on the Cabot Trail. The cottages are cozy, clean, and equipped with all the necessities, and the owners are very helpful. There is access to the Margaree River for kayakers etc. Note: wifi is available only in the double cottages.

Thank you to your wonderful family for the nice review. It was a pleasure to have you as our guests and hope to see you again. Unfortunately wifi doesn't reach the single cottages because of the trees but you are always more than welcome to sit on our porch at the office.
