Interaction with Guests
I am always willing to help you with local info for hiking trails, whale watching and dinning, while also giving you privacy you desire.
Near laundry service; 15 minutes from the Skyline hiking trail, only steps away from whale watching tours, conveniently located close to some good restaurants, the house is also within walking distance to harbour and beach.
This place is great, it's literally at the edge of the continent and provides a breathtaking atmosphere of the mountains rolling into the sea, sounds of buoys, a short drive to trails in the National Park, and most importantly few other people. Jeff's cottage was a great place to stay near the tip of Cape Breton. He was a great host and had tons of great local info for exploring the NP and surrounding trails. Personally I preferred to visit after the summer ended, but I can imagine this to be a great stay in any season.
We felt very welcome at Jeff's lovely abode in Cape Breton this Thanksgiving weekend. Jeff was helpful with lots of local tips and information on where to go, places to eat. We appreciated being able to use the fridge to store some things and the kitchen facilities. It is a great location, too, within walking distance to a restaurant and being able to see whales in the distant water!
Jeff was a great host. He made me feel comfortable right away. He's very knowledgeable about the area, and about Cape Breton in general, and his advice about the trails was so helpful. Accommodations were as described, but it was especially nice having a living room area off the kitchen to sit in and meet the other guests. So much nicer than a hotel or traditional B&B.
Jeff couldn't have been more welcoming to us. He answered all our questions about the area and gave us useful tips that only a local can offer. I recommend staying at his place to anyone planning to spend time in Cape Breton.
Jeff was a great host, offering advice before we even arrived! He was happy to sit with us and offer advice on trails and offered us his sticks to take on our hikes with us! The house is clean, comfortable and completely as described. A fantastic location we with amazing views. Would definitely recommend and would stay again if visiting the area!
My mom and I stayed in Jeff's cottage as we made our way along the Cabot Trail. We were able to get into his place without an issue, even though he was at work when we arrived. I would recommend to others staying here to make the drive in the daylight - we ended up driving through in the pitch black from Cheticamp to Pleasant Bay, and the roads twist and turn. We drove past the cottage a few times, but in the daylight it is easy to find. The bed was SO comfy, I sank right into it and slept like a baby. The view of the ocean is also a plus. Jeff was very welcoming and a real pleasure to chat with. Pleasant Bay itself is a very charming town, probably my favourite stop along the Cabot Trail. We ended up whale watching and hiking on the Skyling Trail. We would stay here again!
Jeff was very welcoming and knowledgeable. The location and view is outstanding. The room and bathroom can be improved in terms of the carpet, linens etc..
