Cottage
Both of our cedar log cottages are located right on the magnificent Bras d'Or Lake and are hidden from each other in a twelve acre wooded area to secure your privacy. They are fully equipped for your holiday (towels and linens, cookware and dishes provided), with a nice kitchen, outdoor barbecue, and all the amenities. Each cottage has a comfortable living room, and two bedrooms (1 Queen size, the other 2 single beds), bathroom , veranda, electric heating. The cottages are a proven favourite for honeymooners, but even a family of five can be housed, and all may enjoy the quiet retreat and the potential that the Bras d'Or Lake offers. Use our splendid beach to stretch out in the sun, have a swim, go snorkelling or fishing or just wander off collecting beach rocks.

You can explore the various waterways and islands by kayak or canoe Our area offers many other activities like golfing at the nearby Dundee Resort, diving, sailing or horseback riding. And the magnificent long sandy beach of Point Michaud or the French speaking fishing community of Isle Madame can be reached in 45 minute by car. Plan for a full day excursion to see the famous Cabot Trail and the historic Fortress of Louisbourg. The picturesque Town of St. Peters is just a 15 minutes drive away where you can do all your errands, go to restaurants, visit museums or go hiking in the Provincial Battery Park which also features a campground right on the Ocean.More

This rental was all that was expected and Eberhard was very helpful and insightful. We enjoyed the stay very much and most especially the stone beach access. We would recommend this option to anyone wanting a peaceful stay on Cape Breton Island.
