Bill's cottage is spotless and well equipped, located off the beaten track in a gorgeous bay. Everything went smoothly, and we had no complaints!
Location was great and was just as described. We used this as a base for day outings and unfortunately didn't get to fully appreciate all that the site offered as far as it own relaxing and serene qualities. It fit the our accommodation budget perfectly as part of a larger trip.
The view from Bill's cottage was fabulous. It was so pretty that we almost hesitated not doing the scenic drive along the Cabot Trail. The cottage was very clean and had all the things that we need to cook and relax. I would love to come to this cottage again for my next Cape Breton visit.
We really enjoyed our time at the cottage. Spectacular views of the Bras d'Or Lakes from a cute, cozy little cottage. The house was just as advertised and more--everything we needed to have a relaxing vacation was provided for. Bill was an excellent host, very easy and prompt to communicate with, and was quite flexible to our changing schedule/needs. We're looking forward to staying here again when we're back up this way again.
This was my second stay here and it was great. The cottage is very private, in a beautiful location, and Bill was very easy to communicate with. Would definitely recommend.
We were five guys (two men and three teens) who were looking for a convenient place to explore eastern Cape Breton - Sydney, Glace Bay, and Louisbourg. The place was perfect for us with two bedrooms and room in the living room for sleeping bags. The home is an older one, but it was clean and comfortable. The lakeside location was beautiful and we enjoyed having a fire pit.
Great deal in a beautiful part of Nova Scotia. Yard is massive and runs down toward lake just like in the photo. The house is simple but functional. Two queen beds and a pull-out sofa. Stereo set-up if you'd like to plug in your music. Highly recommend!
