It is impossible to overstate the beauty and charm of Kildare Cottage. When we stepped through the green gate, our first view of the property was magical. It literally took our breath away. As pretty as the photos are, they don't do it justice. it's an absolutely beautiful property. My husband and I desperately needed a few quiet days away to decompress, unwind, and rest. Kildare was everything we'd hoped for and more. Our usual style on trips is to race from one attraction to another to make sure we don't miss anything. At Kildare we had very little interest in the outside world. We did manage to drive the Cabot Trail, take a sail on the Amoeba, and visit the Bell Museum for a couple of rainy hours, but mostly we just wanted to hang out at the cottage. Kildare itself became the main attraction and we didn't want to miss an inch of it. We spent hours exploring every nook and cranny both inside and out, marveling at the attention to detail throughout. It's not possible to create such an amazing atmosphere by accident. Jan and her family have outdone themselves. It's truly a special place.

As wonderful as the rest of the property is, there's something magnetic about the porch and the view of lake. We repeatedly found ourselves out on the porch, drawn to the beauty of the lake with Beinn Bhreagh in the distance. We had morning coffee out there. We ate meals out there. We read out there. We sat and talked and did nothing at all out there. We had no desire for televisions, computers, or telephones. For the first time ever, I came home from a vacation feeling like I'd had an actual break and feeling restored by it. I can honestly say that Kildare taught me the value of doing "nothing" and that sometimes "nothing" is everything.

Book your stay at Kildare. You won't be sorry.
