Beautiful, Clean, well equipped and very comfortable. We recently stayed at the cottages, and we're treated to much more than we were expecting.

At the end of our trip to Cape Breton, we decided to stay at Big Pond Housekeeping Cottages despite the lousy name and the unappealing website. The only thing we knew about Big Pond is that Rita McNeil was born here and that it was on Bras D'Or Lake, which we wanted to explore. It ended up being the best...
