Our well appointed cottage looked out over the bay from the upper floor. All units face the waterfront and have a living area with a gas fireplace, dedicated eat-in kitchen with refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and microwave, dishes and cookware. The bathroom has a generous jacuzzi tub and adjustable showerhead. The queen-size bed was covered by a soft and warm handmade quilt.

We had the most comfortable night’s sleep here of any place we’ve been over a summer filled with travel, both in the US and Nova Scotia.

Our stay in Whycocomagh was a cold rainy one, but we enjoyed a crackling fire in the lodge and the company of Hank, the resident dog.

Recommended local activities were accurate and well chosen for us. The innkeeper has a wealth of knowledge of the Cape Breton area and other Nova Scotia destinations.

We only wish we could have stayed longer - we almost did!

Thank you for your perfect review of our business. We really appreciate the level of detail you provided to describe your experience with us and we are especially pleased to see you noted how comfortable our beds and bedding really is. It's too bad the weather did not cooperate more but that is why we have the big fire place in the lodge as you pointed out and Hank sure does not hurt during a rainy day inside. We all hope you have a wonderful evening and that we get to see you again.

All the best

What can you say, from the warm welcome from Rennie and Hank the dog to the excellent accommodation and a view over the lake to die for. Sunset and sunrise were spectacular. Great watching the herons hunt for fish! Would in the future be good to provide breakfast as choice in the village is limited. Can always cook yourself in the excellent kitchen though. Perfect in every way and wish we could have stayed longer

Room tip: All overlook the lake

Thanks so much for your review, we will take your suggestion for breakfast under advisement and we are very pleased you got to see the herons hunt for fish, they really do add a magic to the lake front views. Hopefully we will see you again and you get to stay as long as you like! Take care from Renie, Hank and the whole team.

WOW WOW WOW!

Originally we were only supposed to be spending one night at keltic quay... our other hotel had cancelled on us due to overbooking so by luck keltic quay had space for us the first and second night.

Straight on arrival we were greeted by the beautiful black Labrador Hank. After a quick check in and warm welcome we were shown to our lodge for the few days. It was clean, comfortable, very spacious and the view... the view was wonderful.

Our main reason for visiting was to complete the Cabot trail (an 8 hour scenic drive). I cannot recommend this enough to anyone.

Keltic quay supplied paddle boats, kayaks and rowing boats all free of charge to help yourself too. Every single day I was out kayaking in the lake (despite having never done it before). The only thing I would say is avoid swimming in it. There are jellyfish everywhere although apparently they come in flocks so perhaps it was just the time of year?

We found a top knotch bbq on our deck - and as my partner is a chef that mean bbq’s every evening!

Overall we had a five star stay and wish we could’ve stayed for even longer.

Thank you very very very much!

We will be back when visiting again from England.

Thanks Sonia for your detailed and positive review. So glad you got to meet Hank and enjoy his company. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the view and used us as your destination for Cabot Trail exploration! It's so nice to hear you had your first kayaking experience with us and good tip on the swimming. We do have a quality bbq offering and we are glad you noticed.

Hopefully we will see you again! Have a great day!

I wish we could stay longer! This place is just everything you would hope for relaxation and comfort. Renie's warm welcome and desire to help with anything we need created almost a homelike atmosphere. Thank you, Renie! Cottages are beautiful. Newer built, with everything necessary in it - from kitchen to bath. Internet worked well, washer/dryer were so helpful. Grill on a porch. It was a home away from home. And the setting around was beautiful - so peaceful! In the main lodge there is a huge 'family' room with the pool table, many other games, bar, TV, music...There are always things to do and to meet other families if you wish. And overall location is convenient, while being very private and quiet.

Hello

Your review is perhaps one of the best we have read to date, you covered so much of what we pride ourselves on here at Keltic Quay. Thanks especially for the comments on Renie and the distance she goes to make sure all of guests do feel at home. We truly wish you a wonderful day, thanks so much for leaving this review.
