Awful shower, run down cottage and very old. Would not stay here again. Wifi was unfortunately extremely slow. The outdated Furniture was sticky, and the cottage we were in stunk. I would suggest that the owners invest in some updates.

I took my parents and two small children, on a mini vacation, to Cheticamp. We stayed at Cheticamp Island Resort for 2 nights and Laura's Motor Inn for 1 night. Upon arrival, the cottage appeared to be clean and a bit outdated. We spent the evening visiting with my sister and her bf, who are in Cheticamp for the summer....

We were so pleased with our cottage and the beautiful private setting! We were a bit concerned after reading some other reviews but did not encounter any issues. The cottage was very clean and spacious; we had pretty much everything we needed; it was nice to be able to cook on the grill and hang out on our private deck....

Pros: Very good location: all cottages are about 20 meters from the beach front, very close to Cabot Trail, clean room, clean kitchenette, very accommodating hostess Cons: Small room, small bathroom Not a bad choice if you don't want to commute everyday from Sydney and would like to buy fresh seafood from local groceries and cook yourself.

Arrived for our one night stay and was shocked by the property. This is nothing like any resort I had been too. The cabins are an extraordinary a mish mash of furniture, I confess to not to being game enough to sit on the lounge. The bedrooms and bathroom was clean however. Sitting on the front deck the beauty and...

Stayed one night in cabin 18 and found it quite nice. It was very clean and the bed comfy. Had a great view. The beach was awesome with lots of beach glass! Hosts were very friendly. I would stay again.

Don't let the pictures on their website fool you. the television, fire place and shower didn't work. there were disgusting white slimy streaks on the windows and dirty black marks on the doors and walls. The bar-b-que(which we were hoping to use and spent almost $100.00 on food...

One word. "Dump". The words that are written prior to this says all. This trip to the Cabot trail have been a train wreck with a start to The lady at the tourist info helped book this. Must have been paid off as there is no way she would have stayed here EVER.

We were driving all day and could not get reservations in Mabou because a famous fiddler passed away. I tried several places that had decent review without success. We asked at the Cape Breton Visitor center for a recommendation for someplace nice. It was disgusting. We arrived around 7PM and really didn't have a choice since we had driven about...
