Minutes from Inverness this little gem is a perfect location to explore the Cape Breton highlands, enjoy a round of golf or cruise the Cabot trail. Private beach, breathtaking views clean, bright and spacious cottages. Private grounds filled with mature tres offer privacy and natural feel. Highly recommend.
We booked the Octagon Cottage for 3 nights the beginning of August and wished we had booked it longer. The cottage was built by the owner and had everything we needed inside and out. It is on a cliff overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence and it was so relaxing being there. The whole area (Margaree Valley) is like going back 30 years--nothing is built up. It is a convenient location for whale watching, golf, hiking in Cape Breton National Park, Malbou etc. If you want to get away from it all, enjoy nature, hiking, and beautiful views...go here! You won't regret it! The owners are so welcoming!
My husband and I have just returned from our 1 week stay at chimney corner cottages. It was beautiful, private and relaxing. We stayed in the Cliff cottage, which was well equipped with everything you would need. The sunset views were amazing! We day tripped everyday and this place was central to everything. The host Bob and Jan are very nice folks. They even stocked our cabin with a welcoming bottle of wine for a personal welcoming touch. THIS place is a hidden gem off the Cabot trail !
My husband and I both agreed this was the best vacation we had ever experienced. The Wheelers thought of every way possible to make our stay at The Octagon Cottage perfect! No detail was too small from the well appointed kitchen and flower boxes on the deck to fuzzy robes waiting for us in the bedroom wardrobe! The cottage itself is a work of art designed, built and decorated by the owners. The location of The Octagon Cottage is totally private with the most breathtaking views imaginable. We can't wait for our return visit next year.
Well, we loved our stay here in 2015 so much, we decided to stay at Chimney Corner Cottages again this year, 2017, We stayed a week near the end of July at the Octagon Cottage, our favourite. It was warmer and we enjoyed the porch and deck by the cliff more this year. Again, if you want quiet, and relaxation, this is the place. What a peaceful stay we had. Out of all the cottages we've researched to rent by the ocean on Cape Breton Island, this place is the best. The sunsets are just beautiful. It's quiet, it's in a great location.....access to the Cabot Trail and the Ceilidh Trail. And of course Jan, Bob, and family are wonderful hosts. Thank you very much, we'll definitely be back again.
