We stayed here with our two young children. The cottage was exceptionally clean, the view was amazing and location was great! We stayed at cottage #1 and it had everything we needed, even bedtime story books and coffee! Felt very private and homey, we wished we were staying longer. I would highly recommend!!

We stayed in a small bachelor cottage facing the ocean inlet and hills. The cottage had all you needed with some special extras in the bathroom. The kitchen counterspace was limited. The outside deck was small, but enabled us to eat outside. The waterfront was natural and had some wildlife to observe. Parking was next to cottage.The owner was extremely helpful in orientatiing us. Shopping was about 10/15 minutes away and eating places were close by. A farmer's market was a few minutes away. We visited the Miner's Museum in Glacé Bay. Sydney was very interesting

Our family jusy returned from a week-long stay at the "View of the Sea" cottages. We absolutely loved it! Spacious, clean, and a beautiful view with a beautiful breeze. My daughter enjoyed the playground and the nightly campfires. The property is located not far from the highway, which makes it easy to commute to Dalem Lake, Lick-A-Chick, The Lobster Pound and Moore, and other spots of interest. Mark and Gina were wonderful, and will do whatever they can to make your stay as pleasant as possible. My recommendation is to bring some bug spray for the evenings, watch out for jellyfish when you swim, and bring some kindling for the firepit. We look forward to returning again next summer!

Five of us stayed in June 2015. Our cottage was off a country road at a quiet spot right by the shore. We saw Canada Geese swimming near the shore, and could hear oven birds singing in the forest nearby. The kitchen, living area, and bedrooms were comfortable and well equipped, and there was a big and very new barbeque that we made good use of. The sun room was lovely and the shower was quite nice (the water temperature stays constant). The hosts were very accommodating. They got us salt right away when we told them there wasn’t any! We only stayed for two nights. The hosts told us about many things we could do in the nearby area but unfortunately we didn’t have time on this trip. We greatly enjoyed our stay and would happily return.
