The Sawmill Cabin is very rustic, wrapped in spruce and pine boards giving the area a sweet smell of fresh sawed lumber. If your looking for luxury this is not the cabin for you, with an outdoor toilet and no running water. Offering a quiet and unique comfort in the Canadian forest.
This space is built around a sawmill supply of lumber, giving it that real off grid feeling. Offering wood heat and gas powered electricity, surrounded by trees you can relax in the peace of the Canadian Wilderness!
We have a family owned fully licenced restaurant for the past 50 years specializing in fresh food and Scottish baked goods, as well as zip lining/kayak-paddle boarding/hiking trails/waterfalls/gift craft store all within walking distance.
  • We had a wonderful stay at Terrence's place. The cabin is so quaint and peaceful. We stayed for 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer!

  • If you want a cosy, rustic escape, this is the place for you! Terrence’s cabin is set back in the woods about 50 from the Cabot Trail with a picturesque river behind it. He met us upon arrival, brought wood for the fire, turned on the generator and gave us a few other supplies we needed. He also gave us a list of some beautiful places to check out near by! This is a pretty minimalist cabin with no running water, so come prepared.

  • Terrence has been a super host. Super friendly and informative, he catered to all our needs. Very private. Classic east coast hospitality. We dont want to leave 😊

    Mark2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay at Terrence’s Tiny House!!! Private, secluded, and so cozy! What a fantastic stay we had. Terrence was great and couldn’t have asked for a better night!

    Mary Alissa2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Small, cozy and exactly what we were looking for.

    Annette2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in Terrence's little cabin in the woods was amazing last weekend in Dingwall. Everything in the description of this listing was accurate and the host was very accommodating. This cabin is a great escape and a great opportunity to rest and unplug. There were lovely touches inside the cabin and the host was very accommodating coming over to aid in starting a fire and helping out with the electric generator. Definitely will be staying here again!

    Teri2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great lil cabin! We were looking for a place to get away and unplug for a night and this is exactly what we found. Remote enough to feel like you’re getting away but close enough to the general store to pick up anything you might have forgotten. Great location if you’re looking to explore the area. It was nice to have the generator for lights and to run the heater until the wood stove got going. Very cozy and rustic, would come back again! (Don’t forget to bring your own cooking pans/utensils to use on the hot plate provided).

    Erin2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for opening up your place to us! Everything was as expected - it was cosy and warm in November. Generator worked great. Quite rustic, everything as expected for a good off-grid time. Location was very private, which I appreciated. Well stocked with firewood, etc. There's a little corner store about a 1 min drive away, which was very handy. Thanks!

  • We stayed for 2 nights. It was an amazing first time experience for us. Location was awesome. Everything was just perfect, exactly the same as shown in pictures. Stacy and Lowell were very helpful and responsive. Highly recommend.

    Hardik2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Would definitely recommend this place!!

    Shruti2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • It was our first RV/Trailer experience. The trailer was the perfect location for our one night stay! Wish we could have spent more time!

    Carla2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Our 3 night stay at Stacy and Lowell's place was definitely the highlight of our east coast road trip! The place was sparkling clean, the beds were sooo comfortable - it was so cozy! Its location is perfect for anyone travelling along the Cabot Trail. Lowell was kind enough to take us out to try and track a Moose for us to see...no luck though. But, it was a great experience, and lots of laughs were had. We hope to come back some day, and I would recommend this place to anyone who is hesitant to stay in a "trailer" ...because it's more like a cottage.

    Julianna2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • I was very comfortable in this beautiful trailer. Stacey was helpful and considerate. It had everything I needed and was in a quiet location.

    Patricia2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much for having us! Cape Breton is a beautiful place with stunning views! We had a fun relaxing time cozied up by the fire! This was definitely our best trip this summer! The trailer offered everything we needed!

    Leo2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Stacy was a great host. Property as described. Communicated well.

    Doug2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Stacy’s place during our road trip around Cabot trail. RV was great, and had a pretty awesome view. Stacy’s communication was perfect from the beginning. I will stay here again for sure. :-)

    Number #1 Dome Village in North America. Welcome to the Oasis of South Harbour Cape Breton. Come where the Mountains turns to Sand, where John Cabot made a Stand at the Heart of the Highlands. Book your stay inside Glamping Newest and most Popular tent, The Geodesic Dome. Enjoy the serenity of having your private place in the forest with the view of the Harbour from your room. Private Bathrooms in all our Domes. You're close to everything Cape Breton Highlands has to offer. A stay to Remember.
    You’ll be renting a 20ft round geodesic dome that also includes a private bathroom suite. This unit includes one King size bed. All of our camping lots are 2400 sqft minimum and includes parking for two vehicles. On site you will find a picnic table, a fire pit and a charcoal BBQ. You can purchase charcoal and firewood at the office. Also included is heated water, 20 amp of electricity and Wifi.

For this park to be enjoyed, you need to leave the beaten path as in "The Cabot Trail" to truly enjoy this part of the world. You'll have all the chances to do so when the whole Park is at your doorstep.

    Our cozy wilderness cabin offers total privacy on 50 acres of old growth forest. It offers a stunning view of the North Mountain/Aspy valley out to the distant ocean. Close to Cape Breton Highlands National Park, trails, kayaking/biking, beaches & whale watching. Private trail down to the pristine North Aspy river. Simple and rustic with deck, kitchenette, bed, BBQ. For weekly rentals-free kayak rental included. Not for the faint of heart with rugged driveway, steep land and wild creatures.
    Our space is unique as it offers a rustic and wild bit of paradise just off the Cabot Trail. If you like, you will see no one at all. The cabin is a simple one room building, well the bathroom is closed off from the rest :). Newly renovated it offers a deck, kitchenette (mini fridge, microwave, hotplate, toaster oven, sink) with a small woodstove and BBQ outside. One of the next best features is its location here in Northern Cape Breton, just off the Cabot Trail, with access to both the eastern and western sides of the National Park. It is a short drive to stunning barrier beaches, like John Cabot's Landing Provincial Park. There are several local shops and restaurants only a short drive away. It is a WILD place though. The driveway is rough. The land is steep. The creatures are wild. This is no 5 star resort :) This is a wilderness cabin. With a flush toilet and running water. No wifi. No TV. And the radio either brings in a newfoundland station or CBC radio, depending on the weather. Good cell service for bell/aliant/telus customers. Rogers customers are out of luck.
    The area is very unique, with small communities dotting a rugged coastline. The National Park lies to the east and west of you, while the Aspy Wilderness Area stretches out in front. It is the perfect place for all your outdoor adventures.
  • We had an amazing few days at the Sunrise Wilderness Cabin. The view is just spectacular, the pictures don't do it justice. The cabin is private and secluded, and we felt like there was no one else for miles. The cabin is clean and comfy, and has everything you need - we loved staying in on a rainy day with the wood stove going. The local tips that Jennifer offers are very helpful - we took her advice for various hikes and outings and weren't disappointed! If you're looking for a quiet, peaceful, relaxing getaway, look no further! Thanks Jennifer - we'll be back! :)

  • "Hidden" Gem

    Jamen2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful little cabin, off the Cabot Trail enough so as to hear only nature. Loved the wood stove. Got chilly at night so was great to stoke a fire before bed and get toasty. Bed was comfortable. Nice touch having a water cooler and a barbecue. Both were put to good use. The deck overlooking the mountains is the clincher - I could sit and stare for days. I missed the hiking path to the large maples, too much to do. It’ll have to wait until next time.

    George2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderfully simple yet everything necessary for a comfortable stay. Seemingly isolated but convenient to everything this part of the world has to offer, mostly spectacular scenery and a close association with Mother Nature. Who could ask for more.

    Wesley2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Million dollar view and everything you need to enjoy. Rustic for sure, but not rough. Peaceful and cozy. Would go back in a heartbeat.

    Angela2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • The view. The view. The view! We fell in-love with the cabin - an awesome place to relax and make a meal after hiking and exploring. The perfect spot to be cozy on a rainy fall day. Jennifer went above and beyond to be sure that we had a fantastic Cape North experience. I would go back again tomorrow if I could.

    Heidi2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • We loved spending time at Jessica’s cottage. Great and private location with a superb view!

    Melissa2019-09-06T00:00:00Z
  • We truly appreciated the privacy, beautiful scenery, quietness, the coziness and location of the cabin. Would love to experience this place in the winter months.

  • This was our first time staying in a dome. Washroom and shower are in the dome!! Each dome has their own picnic table, fire pit and charcoal grill. Shanshan and her family live on site and they are a really nice and very cool family. Don't forget bug spray. For dinner we got take out and ate during sunset at our picnic table. This was a cool experience. If you want to spend the night in nature but aren't a camper, this could be for you.

  • Terrence was great! He upgraded us from the campground we had booked to his cabin free of charge. It suited our needs perfectly as it was close to hiking trails and was nice and clean. It had basic cooking appliances, but we had brought our own anyways so did most of our own cooking outside. Was small, but totally functional as you will want to spend most of your time outdoors anyways! Thank you for hosting we had a great stay!

    Paige2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Terrence's place is wonderful if you are looking for a quiet camp site that is more personal than a provincial park. The platforms were great for sleeping and helped to keep us dry in the rain.

    Alison2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed camping here.

    William2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great, quiet place on the Cabot Trail. We had the area to ourselves so it was much better than the park camps loaded with people. We stayed behind the bistro which worked out great for having some dinner. Would recommend over the large campsites in the park

    Michael2019-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Terrence was very helpful. He provided a lot of local tips and brought us firewood to use for a fire. Coffee and fruit were also provided in the morning at a near by restaurant.

    Jarod2019-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • The campsite is absolutely gorgeous, and the surrounding area on Cabot trial is ever more beautiful! Terrence was a great host at showing us where our site was and where everything we need was. Especially since we got in so late. Was an amazing experience.

    Meghan2019-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • I would definitely recommend this place! Terrence was great and super helpful with everything. It’s in an ideal location, paddle boarding and zip lining we’re awesome, and the restaurant was great!

    Justin2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Terrence was very helpful and has a cool camping set up. You can hear the river from the site and it is fairly close to a beautiful sandbar beach. Would recommend!

    Crystal2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous home and location. The house is light filled and beautifully decorated. We canoed and were met by a seal! The call of the loon and sound of the ocean lulled me to a peaceful state. Watching the sunrise from the dock with a cup of coffee in hand was delightful. I highly recommend this home and would love to come back again!

    Helena2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • This property is amazing. You are right on the harbor and can take the canoe to the ocean, it is shallow enough to walk! The house itself is perfect. Make sure to load up on food and groceries. Meat Cove is a must when you are there for food!

    Erica2019-08-17T00:00:00Z

    Tammy2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • We recommend this cottage for its great amenities, peace and quiet, cleanliness, and location for great hikes. Our hosts thought of everything with me might need or wanted to know about the area. They were always there for us, yet invisible. Everything was there to cook our meals and enjoy our local finds. We got to experience everything Cape Breton, from food and drinks, the locals and their Markets, to hikes, nature, and every weather possible. Perfect for 2 or 4 people into adventure or relax-in when Mother Nature says so.

    Terrence2019-06-25T00:00:00Z
  • My husband a I spent 3 nights at the cottage. The weather was rainy but the cottage was so comfortable that we actually enjoyed being indoors. The view is so spectacular that I got up early just to watch the sunrise over the water. This is absolutely the most outstanding Airbnb we’ve visited. The hosts have thought of everything.

    Susan2018-09-29T00:00:00Z

    Sarah-Jeanne2018-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • We felt warmly welcomed, and were amazed at the thoughtful touches everywhere- from cooking utensils to bathroom supplies. The decks and porch made for perfect sitting and soaking in the view of South Harbour. We drove the Cabot Trail and hiked in the surrounding National Park. Southrock cottage provided the perfect “home away from home” to enjoy the beauty of Cape Breton.

    Kandace2018-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great house, great location, great hosts - would love ro return any time. We very much enjoyed the house, its many amenities and the surroundings. Thank you Keith & Lorraine for letting us stay in your little paradise!!

    Hi friends, I am Roland. I offer you to stay in my house, when I am in my other home in Switzerland - it's all yours. You will like it here close to the harbours where all my dear friends live. You will love its rough beauty and the excitements of northern Cabot Trail. Great hiking, fishing, hunting, biking, canoeing, golf, restaurants, you'll soon experience it all. Come and enjoy!
    You have to know: this house is a hundred years old. A lot of renovations have been done - both indoor and outdoor - and it is coming along nicely. You can see me working on my blog - search for rolandmaeder on blogspot. However, some tasks still need to be done. That's why I still set the price low. Despite this, there is still plenty to enjoy! And a rustic place is what I personally like to have.
    The property has no streetlights in range and remains nice and quiet overnight. There is a cabine on the property pretty close, some 120 ft. away in the woods. If somebody stays there you might get in contact with them. Frank and Sally live 600 ft. down the road in the direction Cape North, and Mark and Janice 600 ft. down the driveway across the Cabot Trail. I know them very well and they are dear friends. Feel free to say hello and have a chatt.
  • We had a marvelous stay at Sunrise over the thanksgiving weekend. The home was lovely and cozy and exactly as Roland had described. We loved the clay wood stove and enjoyed reading and playing games by it over the rainy weekend. When the weather was clear we also loved the views and the deck and even got to see a few stars the one night. The location is amazing, we loved the back trail through the woods, the quiet and it is close to so many beautiful areas. We look forward to coming back sometime! Thanks for everything.

  • Rolands place is a perfect location to explore both sides of the cape. The bed was super comfy and we really felt welcomed and at home. We highly recommend it to anyone who's visiting Cape Breton!!

    Lucie2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. Although you might feel as you are far away from any civilication (which, in fact, you are not), the house is equipped with everything you need; from warm beds to good wifi - you will find everything. We enjoyed the evenings at the fireplace and to look to the stars and milky way at night, whilst we went to many places nearby in the national park.

    David2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a pleasant stay here. It was a good base to explore the park and we liked eating breakfast on the deck.

    McKenzie2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • It’s really a good place to stay! It’s very clean and cozy. We can go both way to travel around the park! And it’s a perfect place to view the ocean and the star! Roland is very nice and he reply to us very fast

    玉婷2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet and rustic. Exactly what we were looking for. Only 5 minutes from the local grocery store where we could get everything including the BEST banana bread ever. Very convenient access to all of the trails and activities within 45 min. Would definitely stay again

    Erika2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • Simple and functional

    Sylvia2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • This house is very cute and clean. Our group was a 32, 52, and 82 year old woman and we had just what we needed. We used the fire pit and fireplace and the tips found in Rolands welcome letter shaped our trip and was a very good trip. His house is the ideal location for exploring Meat Cove, the park, and east and west sides of the island. We flew into Halifax and drove up the Cheticamp side to get to Rolands, then drove to Ingonish and further south. Also went to meat cove one day. Meat Cove is lots of gravel and slightly rutted to get to the top but worth the drive. Drove down to Peggys Cove on the way back to Halifax. I’m very happy with the location of this home, but we most enjoyed the charm of the old house with nice updates like the deck up top. The mountain and water view is closer and than the pictures show too. Wish I lived there all the time. Great stay.

  • We had a great two night stay at Joyce’s house. Joyce was super fast in all communications and extremely helpful to us prior to our arrival. We weren’t sure we would make it to Dingwall as there was a big snowstorm so Joyce kindly let us book last minute and also check in several hours early to get out of the storm. Joyce and her husband Scott were very welcoming and helpful during our stay offering lots of local information, clearing snow from the driveway and making sure we had everything we needed. The house has loads of character, is warm, spacious and has everything you need. If there in winter definitely visit North Highlands Nordic just up the road for some cross-country skiing, it’s great too!

    Felicia2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Joyce’s house was a fantastic winter get away spot for the weekend. The Nordic skiing course is just 5 minutes down the road. It was cozy and well set up. Joyce was very responsive to all our needs. Would recommend.

    Linnea And Joshua2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! House is simple as explained/pictured but does the trick since you'll want to be spending time outside when you are there anyway. Joyce had very prompt responses and was understanding of a little human error I made in check out.

Bricin, and his family are amazing! They're the most laid-back, friendliest people I've ever met, and anyone who stays here won't regret it. 100% would stay again!

    Sarah2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • As a solo traveller in my 60s, I was a little concerned that I would feel uncomfortable and out of place. Not a concern at all! Such a friendly and welcoming space. The hosts are so lovely that their energy and positivity seems to be shared by the guests. Loved the presence of children as well as the facility is shared with the family. Great advice on itinerary which I appreciated. Although this is a shared space, lots of good touches to add comfort - bookshelves and books of course, wonderful common spaces, bed side lamps etc. Great location as well! A real gift for travellers!

    Jane2019-10-06T00:00:00Z

The cottage was so clean and the beds were super comfortable, the only downside was that there wasn't quite enough couch space for four adults, but everything else was fantastic!

    Welcome on Sugarloaf! This house is elevated on the waterfront of North Harbour facing the rising sun in the morning. Relaxing rest in a quiet invironment. No problem if you party on the fireplace in the lawn. Ten minutes away from the Cabot Trail and close to famous Cabots Landing and the beaches. Access with boat trailer to the water on property.
    You will feel this place is built to spend your best weeks of the year here. Your privat beachzone is waiting for you, all the exiting places of the Cabot Trail are close. Great hiking, fishing, boating, sightseeing in the harbours and highlands.
    Most of the properties on the Bay St. Lawrence Road are waterfront properties with privat access to the shore. The properties are big, so you do not disturb your neighbours. The water n the harbour is very warm in summer, since it is a inlet behind a miles long sand beach you can access from different places. In spring and fall the highlands behind the road offer a unbelievable picture of colours.
  • We had a great stay at Chris and Marlise's trailer. The location is amazing, and the garden, fire pit and view are exceptional. The location is just the best, as you can easily reach any side of the Cabot trail, and even meat cove! This meant we could see most of the park without ever straying too far from the property. The property looks exactly like it does in the pictures, it's an old trailer, with a homely cosy feel. There are lots of little heaters, but it is definitely starting to get chilly (early October). Fortunately, the shower is great, with endless hot water at a really strong pressure. There's a coffee maker, giant fridge, oven, oil, salt, pepper, herbs and spices, meaning you don't have to think of taking everything. Thank you a pleasant vacation!

    Leigh2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Nicer than pictures. Bring bug spray and your telescope for star gazing! On the bay not the ocean, but at night you can hear the waves crashing! Incredible view of the sky!

    Preston2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great location to visit the North Cabot Trail. Nice and quiet bungalow with a really great view ! The best beach in the area is only 2mn drive (Cabot landing). I definitely recommend this place. Thanks Chris and Marlise

    Michael2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time at sugarloaf. My husband, niece, cousin, cousin's wife, and daughter all stayed there for 4 days with our dogs. We loved the views and the beach nearby. The location was perfect for us. The only downside was the grocery stores nearby are not very good. Overpriced and not stocked with veggies. Bring your own groceries and water. There are restaurants nearby too and most are pretty good. We would definitely stay again.

    Kim2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful view. Perfect location for our two hikes . White Point trail and Meat Cove.

    Diane2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • We just returned from our Cap Berton trip. We stayed in this cottage for 3 nights. It was an excellent and amazing experience. To us the cottage was the best place in that area. Those few days we did not think we were someone else's house, it felt so own. Imaculate condition gave us wonderful feeling. Evrything was in order and beautifully placed. The location is just great. We went to Meat Cove, Whale watch, Cabot Landing Beach, Neils Harobour, Igornish Beache etc. All were in close proximity. Chris and Marlise were very communicative. They replied our question right away. I must thank the local host Ms. Kim and her partner as well, they are so nice people and surely Kim keep the standaard of the cottage beyond expectation. we adult and our kids loved it very much. We will be back again for sure. I can assure you that you wont be disappointed if you stay there. Thanks again Chirs and Marlise. B. Mukul

    Bodiuzzaman2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • We chose this cottage for its location, near the cabot trail and a lot of hidden gems that are not in the national park. Sadly, our 5 nights stay was not enough to see it all. Time went by so fast. Kids enjoyed card games before bed. The cottage was clean and cozy. We had a great time! Thank you.

    Annie2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • It was so wonderful to spend time in Cape North. It’s such a beautiful, quiet spot right on the ocean. It was clean and comfortable, with plenty of room for our family 6. It’s also an easy spot to explore Cabot Trail.

    Justin2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • This little cottage is the perfect home base for the Cape North area. We explored Meat Cove and White Point both recommended by Peter who was full of great suggestions of what to do in the area. We stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Set up perfectly with everything you need. Great spot with a breathtaking view of the ocean. Absolutely recommend you book this place if you can!!

    Jo2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Loved the place and enjoyed our stay there. The cottage has an amazing view of South harbor and the ocean.

    Muhammad2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot think of a more mystical tranquil & secluded retreat. The cottage is extremely cozy and to sit outside beneath the stars and watch the moon rise over south harbor was pure magic. The fog burning off of the sea as the sun rose and the waterfall nearby only added to the raw earthly beauty of this oasis. We enjoyed sitting on the screen porch So much as well! a short drive to all of the points along the Cabot trail as well.

    Paulina2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fabulous stay at Peter’s cabin near Dingwall! The views were stunning-and we had some great sunsets while we were there. Peter was quick to respond to all questions and helped us to find activities in the area. The cabin is very new, and everything was clean and in good condition. The water dispenser was definitely a much appreciated feature.

    Debbie2019-08-18T00:00:00Z

    Julianna2019-08-03T00:00:00Z
  • Breathtakingly beautiful spot with gorgeous view over looking the bay and the ocean. The beach is only a 15 minute walk from the house. The house had absolutely everything you need to cook and to be comfortable. AC, Wi Fi, even a screened deck to keep the bugs away. Peter was especially communicative and responsive and gave us great local tips. Highly recommended!!!

They were so nice and had good suggestions :-) For me the best place on Cape Breton Islands!!!!!! Highly recommend!!!!!

    Number #1 Dome Village in North America. Welcome to the Oasis of South Harbour Cape Breton. Come where the Mountains turns to Sand, where John Cabot made a Stand at the Heart of the Highlands. Book your stay inside Glamping Newest and most Popular tent, The Geodesic Dome. Enjoy the serenity of having your private place in the forest with the view of the Harbour from your room.

You'll have all the chances to do so when the whole Park is at your doorstep.

  • Blue Bayou is a fabulous place to stay on the Cabot trail. They are located at the top, halfway around the trail. The community they are building is so cool. We love staying in domes and these ones were the coolest we’ve stayed in. Having a private bathroom inside the dome is truly unique to the area. Thanks for having us and creating such a cool, unique place to stay.

    Bri2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Had an amazing time here! A great place to stay while exploring Cape Breton Island and the Cabot Trail. Would definitely stay here again!

  • The dome was amazing! It was my first time "glamping" and I'm hooked now! Great location near the Cabot Trail but still feels secluded. Very clean and the bed was incredibly comfortable.

  • Secluded spot that makes you feel way off the beaten path, but it's right on the Cabot trail. Stefan and Shanshan were wonderful and very available to make our experience the best.

    Alexandra2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful location and host and family were very nice. Beds were okay- not that comfortable but okay. This was their first season open, so I think they may have more amenities in the future. They had kayaks to rent onsite for going out on bay. Close to cabot trail. Each site had a picnic table, small heater, water heating was unlimited/on demand, small electric water heater and french press for coffee. Everything was clean, but concrete floors were unfinished and left concrete dust/residue on all our bags- but overall we liked staying here. I would have planned to bring charcoal or fire wood for cooking outdoors and ice chest (and ice) if we went again. They moved us to unit 9 due to other reservations, but most of the queen units seemed to be the same. View of lake was amazing. One negative: Dirt road and around the site was pretty muddy coming in. Likely from recent construction- hoping in future seasons there is at least gravel down.

    A lovely cottage on three acres of meadow and forest in the extraordinary Aspy Bay region of Cape Breton. The house offers serene, panoramic views of South Harbour, South Mountain and the ridge of mountains that extend to Cape North, the island's easternmost point and in many ways the end of North America. Aspy Bay and surroundings are without question the crown jewel of Cape Breton.
    The cottage, with two comfortable bedrooms, an airy screened porch and a large common room filled with light and water views, is tucked among birch trees at the end of a point, surrounded on three sides by water. It comes equipped with two classic Old Town canoes, awaiting at shoreline. The screened porch offers the perfect spillover for eating, reading, lounging, playing cards. The property is a few minutes drive from the Cabot Trail and a short hop from White Point, Dingwall and the incredible South Harbour Beach. From the cottage you can paddle across the harbor to the beach, or simply loll around fishing for stripped bass as the bald eagles fly overhead. By mid July the point is thick with blueberries. From here you can easily reach all the wonders of outer Cape Breton, from whale watching at Bay St. Lawrence and Meat Cove to day tripping over to Cheticamp and the incredible salmon fishing in the Margaree River. Several of the towns nearby--Cape North, Neil's Harbour, Ingonish--have a variety of fun dining options. Nearby rivers offer topnotch fly fishing, cliff jumping and fresh-water swimming. There are trails that an entire summer couldn't get to the end of. The house--available from mid May till the end of October--is perfect for one or two couples, a family of four, or for anyone seeking solitude and calm.
  • The cottage is awesome and the location can't be beat! Neil is a thoughtful and considerate host.

    John2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely outstanding cottage in one of the beautiful places of the world. Right on the sparking water of South Harbor, surrounded by lovely birch trees but with a perfect view of the water. The cottage is clean and crisp and refined with lovely windows and furniture. Neil's welcome and information packet alone is worth the price of admission. It contains a wealth of historical and local information that could keep you busy for days. We highly recommend staying here and eagerly anticipate our return.

    Todd And Kimberly2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place. Growing up in Cape Breton I’m well aware of the great spots and this is certainly on the top 5. Sunrises, the night sky and the water - perfect combination. Highly recommended!

    Thomas2018-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • I was a little hesitant, at first, because we weren't ON the ocean but I was so glad we stayed here. It was perfect and much calmer than the ocean would've been at the time of year we came. If you do want to swim in the ocean, the beach is right there, a short drive away. You can canoe if the water is calm enough. Scenic views to take in while sipping your morning coffee - not just the views but wildlife too! My wife was unsure about not having any couches but the chairs were perfectly comfortable. Since it's right off the Cabot Trail, traffic is light but the trail is right there. Neil was a fantastic host, he sent us a little info packet and I think we did every hike he suggested. Highly recommend Sugar Loaf to avid hikers. It's true you spend the majority of your time outside but his little house comes equipped with everything you need in terms of making food down to a pizza stone! Water tastes good. Cottage is super clean and tidy, even comfy. Envious that he owns this little piece of heaven but so glad he's willing to share it! October colours were gorgeous! It's off season in terms of tourism but it was peak in terms of fall foliage! Thank you, Neil, for everything! Hope to return!

    Tristan & Amelia2017-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage was very neat, clean, and up-to-date. We are a family of four, with two girls ages 6 and 9, and the cottage really had everything we needed: Wi-Fi, laundry, kitchen utensils and cookware, extra blankets, beautiful views, board games, outdoor shower, canoes, adult life jackets, etc. There is no grill for BBQing, but there is a tiny fire pit. There's no TV or couch, but you don't drive to the beautiful middle of nowhere to watch TV. You can eat outside on the screened-in porch, but small holes in the screens do let in mosquitoes at a certain time. Although I felt obligated to mention the small downsides in this review, our stay overall was excellent. Neil was a responsive host, and I would highly recommend staying here if you love nature!

    Catherine2017-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very magical & some of the best scenery Cape Breton has to offer. Definitely recommended!

    Thomas2017-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful stay at Neil's cottage! It is so peaceful and relaxing, and truly a wonderful place. We were able watch bald eagles, great herons and kingfishers from the porch each day, and enjoyed a canoe trip around the harbor.

    T2016-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Neil sent a me a multi-page letter about how to find the cottage, how to get the key, where to get groceries, what to do on Cape Breton, where to eat, and much more helpful information. Finding the cottage was easy, even though it was getting dark when we arrived. The cottage was great - just as described. The best part was the surroundings. There were wild blueberries growing along the shore, and eagles in the trees across the water. We saw three moose on our hike on the Skyline Trail, but, unfortunately no whales on our whale watching tour. I would definitely recommend this wonderful cottage.

    This sweet home has had many upgrades and provides astounding views of Aspy Bay, just steps away. There is an extensive sandy beach only 2 kilometres along the coast and lovely hiking nearby. Or...perhaps you want to sit and gaze... Oftentimes, my home is available in its' entirety. Preference will be given to guests who request to stay for two or more days. Come for a relaxing coastal visit.
    Located on a well maintained year round road, the property offers quiet walks, a cosy interior and room to play outdoors. There is a fire pit for summer use. The area provides opportunities for cycling, kayaking (put in opposite house), hiking, and cross country skiing.
    You can be as active or as quiet as you would like here. Easy road access to basic shops and gas stations year round. Most close at 18:00. During the months of June through October, there is a choice of restaurants.
  • Great host, very friendly and accommodating! Lots of advice to give on the local area and Cape Breton in general. Would highly recommend.

    Sarah2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a delightful, eclectically decorated, cozy house, overlooking the ocean. We had the whole place to ourselves as Rinchen was not home. It is a great location for exploring the east side of the Cabot trail.

    Georgina2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • You will fee instantly at home. It's comfy and so well located. A little piece of paradise.

  • We enjoyed spending several days at Richen’s home. Although he was not there, he was an attentive host and actively communicated with us as needed as well as provided insight/guidance as we expect explored the area. We enjoyed the cozy, eclectic space which was filled with interesting books and art. We also enjoyed kayaking from the launch and exploring the towns and hikes north or the park.

  • This hostel was really great. Clean, warm, welcoming. Bricin gave me some fantastic tips on where to explore while I was in the area. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone.

  • Bricin and Patricia have created something special with the Highlands Hostel. The space is beautiful, clean, and has an air of warmth. The location is great with many hikes within a short drive. Make sure to ask them to tag your phone with some of their favorite ones. My stay here was exactly the kind of time I needed, and I didn’t even know it.

  • Staying at the highlands hostel was the best decision ever. Starting from great conversations by the fire to getting every help we needed with our laundry and tips for the best trails and beaches, everything was perfect. We slept really well and it was a great experience that we will fondly remember for the rest of our lifes. We were really sad to leave. Bricin and his family and friends are such fun and lovely hosts.
