Stayed here for 2 nights over Remembrance Day weekend. Beautiful setting right on the bay. Cottage is right on the shoreline. Very clean. Well equipped. Everything you would ever need to do your cooking. The owner is lovely and able to answer any questions. The main lodge is beautiful as well with a huge stone fireplace and lots of windows...

My husband and I booked a romantic getaway we were not disappointed. The view was stunning. The cottage was clean and comfortable. The owner operator was very helpful. We loved the dog Hank!!! Well worth the money.

This place exceeded my expectations. This was the perfect place to spend a few days on Cape Breton. My son was heading off to Dalhousie for University and I decided a few days of golf was a nice way to start the process. Not that hard of a drive (under 3 hours) from Halifax airport with a stop in Antigonish...

I don't know where to begin except to say that after arriving, I was SO depressed that I was only staying one night. I would LOVE to go back and spend a week. We had a 2 bedroom cottage. All of the cottages are right on the water, about 15 feet from the water. The inside and outside of the...

We planned to stay here one night and ended up staying three nights. The hostess is wonderful and full of suggestions. We loved the active osprey nest and the eagles. Balcony overlooking the lake. Spacious, clean cottage. We appreciated being able to use the laundry facilities for free. Fun to follow the dog Hank in his journeys through the water.

From the moment we drove onto the property, being welcomed by "Hank the Tank", I knew this was going to be a great weekend. The main lodge itself is fantastic. The high ceilings, exposed beams and large stone fireplace make it so cozy and inviting! (The large table-sized crib board also helps). We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom...
