A place we found and loved instantly. We go there for peace and tranquility, to enjoy nature, kajaking and long beach walks.
We love to listen to the call of the loons.
We love to explore and find new wonderful places as we hope you will too!
Declared "2nd in the world as a travel destination" by National Geographic and the "world’s most scenic island" by Conde Nast, visit us in Nova Scotia’s Cape Breton masterpiece where our house sits in the middle of all the beauty..
Our cottage has 4 bedrooms, all with lake view and with a private bathroom. Two living rooms and a open kitchen dining living area are completing the setting. A deck is facing the lake.
Our cottage is embedded in nature where you can watch wildlife, swim in the lake (during the summer). Kayaking or walking the nearby beaches is also possible.
You can visit Sydney or the Fortress of Louisbourg (1/2 hour drive) go to Baddeck and sail with an old sail ship or you take a trip to the Highlands. Be prepared to be awed by the spectacular beauty of this region as you travel the northern tip of Cape Breton . Keep an eye out for marine life frolicking in the water (wale watching), and land wildlife such as Moose, bear, bobcat, coyote and fox. The possibilities are endless.
The licensed Riverbank Restaurant offers Canadian-& European Cuisine and is only a 20 minute drive away as is the little village Marion Bridge where you can do your grocery shopping.
If you are looking for a peaceful and tasteful setting to relax we have the place you have to go to.

The house was stunning- far exceeded our expectations! Klaus was charming and welcomed us into his gorgeous home. I would love to return and stay again. We had a marvelous time.
Angela’s cottage was amazing! It is one of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed – the cottage is new, roomy, beautiful and in the most quiet, peaceful and tranquil location you can imagine. Angela’s husband Klaus was our host and graciously greeted us with a glass of wine on our arrival; he provided me with some of the most enjoyable philosophical conversations I’ve had for a while. He was also a great resource for trip and attraction information.
Each bedroom in the cottage has its own bathroom, and our kids enjoyed the privacy of the two huge upstairs bedrooms. We had access to kayaks on nearby MacIntyre Lake (which the cabin overlooks), a roomy deck for morning coffees and evening glasses of wine, and were only a short drive (1/2 an hour) from Sydney and Louisbourg.
Overall, a wonderful place to stay – I wouldn’t hesitate to visit Angela’s cottage again.
This is a breath-taking property set back far off any paved road. Klaus helped get me there once my GPS stopped recognizing the gravel roads which lead to this home. I loved that I could not hear cars or any type of civilization! If you too have come to PEI to 'get away from it all', this is for you.
Klaus showed me around the house and then he retreated to a small trailer (visible on the left in the second photo) next to the house to leave me to enjoy this great space. He offered to make me an espresso in the mornings and that turned out to include a fruit salad and conversation as well.
Honestly, I didn't expect anyone but me to be around during my stay but it was nice to have the company in the end. For your stay, be sure to clarify this with the hosts. Towards the end of the description it states: "Once in a while my husband and I are staying at the cottage too..."
This means that they are also there in the house to use the bathroom and share the kitchen. I didn't mind (it is a huge house) but you might want to know in advance.
The lingering memories of this tranquil setting (including the quintessential sounds of the loons on the lake) make me miss it already and want to return.
Thanks again for offering folks like me the opportunity to experience such paradise.
We had a great time at the house - it was spacious with wonderful rooms, and a fabulous kitchen. The pictures are true. The house had wonderful views to the lake and the hills. The host's husband Klaus was very friendly & answered all our questions on our way there (where to buy groceries, etc). He met us at Oceanview Rd. to guide us in, as the road there was quite rocky, but good. The swimming there was great, and thanks for the little kayaks.
My hosts, Angela and Klause, were gracious, friendly, and helpful. They made sure that I was happy and well-looked after. Their beautiful lake side house is nestled nicely in the woods, and, has all the conveniences that anyone could ask for. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend the Blue Mountain View Lake Cottage to anyone looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway.
When my parents came to visit all the way from Germany, we decided that showing off Nova Scotia's beautiful nature was a must - and it was so worth it. Klaus not only helped us through some initial navigating problems (trust the directions that are given to you on Airbnb!), but he also welcomed us with tea and provided us with plenty of information regarding the closest stores, nice restaurants and so on. To our great pleasure, we were able to use the two kayaks that belong to Angela and Klaus and had such fun times exploring the lake. The house itself is stunning and exceeded our expectations by far - plenty of space, very clean and so unique. Our pup loved it too and we hope to be back in the future - thanks so Angela and Klaus for such a great experience!
We did not actually meet Angela. We did meet her husband however. He was very cordial. He provided us with the key to the house.
