My wife and I rented a cabin here for our 10 year anniversary weekend (Locheil #43). The interior is completely renovated, and was very cozy and comfortable. This cottage is steps away from the Atlantic ocean, and you can hear the waves crashing if you open the window - very relaxing. There is satellite TV, wireless Internet, full bath, and... More

We stayed one night at The Point while touring Nova Scotia - and particularly the Cabot Trail, which is incredible. If you travel the Cabot Trail counterclockwise, which I suggest, The Point is about 1/3 of the way around. The individual cabins have TV, wifi, and are very clean. Our cabin had a stovetop, a microwave and a refrigerator. The... More

Just a one night stay at this wonderful cottage Lochinvar. Drizzly rain, but a lovely, clean, nicely appointed accommodation right on the ocean. Beautiful sunrise in the morning. Bean Barn is the place to eat, breakfast, lunch, or a light dinner.

This is the most amazing place I have ever stayed, we had the small cottage Lochinver but it was sufficient for the needs of two, the bed was very comfortable and the view from the window was amazing. We stayed for 4 nights wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back. It is a great place to... More

This property is simply amazing! Linda gave us a warm welcome upon arrival. We stayed in cottage 43 steps from the water. The view was unbelievable and the cottage was spotless. Breathtaking sunrise visible from your front door. We highly recommend it and can't wait to go back.

Only stayed one night but wish we could have stayed many more. My husband and I stayed in the Raasay cottage where we could hear the waves crashing at night. What a way to be lulled to sleep. Sitting on the deck, watching the sunset, bald eagles, and sea birds, while sipping good wine was an amazing way to spend... More

When my wife and I checked into the Iona Cottage on this beautiful oceanfront property, we got just what we expected times ten!!! Awesome service by Linda the owner, fantastic views, easy beachfront access, local seafood to bring back to the cottage (Rod's Lobsters) and cleanliness that made me feel guilty being in the room!!! This location is even better... More

I stayed with my mom and dad in the cutest 2-bedrooms seafront cottage. At night, the waves crashing on the shore were very soothing. The silence in the area was surprising. The neighbors were friendly, yet discreet. The cottage itself was immaculate and the lady in charge was very accommodating. This place is very deserving of a 5 stars rating.

We booked a cabin here to stay near some friends that vacation here every summer. Lovely location right on the water directly across from the Keltic Lodge. They have parking and a small sand beach on the property. The cabin was very clean.

We stayed here for three days and wish we could have stayed a month. Linda, the manager, was the best host you could hope for. The cottage was spotless, very nicely renovated and had everything that we needed. We watched the lobster boats coming and going from the nearby docks and walked over to buy fresh lobster for our dinner.... More
