“Breathtaking views in Cape Breton”
Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This place has an unbelievable view! We loved sitting on the deck and enjoying a coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. The kids absolutely loved the loft (the stairs are a bit steep so if your children are quite young, you would need to watch them closely). There is so much to do within a very short distance from CliffWaters - great hiking trails, a sandy beach within a five minute walk with a river running right into the ocean, whale watching in Pleasant Bay...and the owners are incredibly nice. This is a fabulous place to stay in Cape Breton.

Thank you Heidi for the kind review. It was great to meet your family and to know that everyone had a good time. Great point about the stairs - the ladder/stair to loft is steep. If you're ever back with smaller children, the couch on the main floor pulls out into a double bed. We hope that you all have a wonderful summer back in Toronto. Take care and have fun,
Jer and Niki

“Whales, welcome and wonderful people”
Reviewed 24 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

Pleasant Bay is an understatement, it's stunning, a gem, a secluded corner of the amazing Cape Breton National Park. You need never leave the deck of the cabin to see whales, Hawks and Eagles. Just 5 minutes drive from Pleasant Bay and the delicious food at The Rusty Anchor, Cliffs Waters is an exceptional, relaxed and comfortable base to explore trails, beauty and wildlife. Niki and Jer are lovely people and delightful hosts and like the other 120 inhabitants of Plesant Bay they make you feel welcome and more. Try a whale watching trip with Cap'n Mark and see 100+ pilot whales, and humpbacks. Back to the cabin at the end of a full day and sit out on the deck with a glass of Nova Scotia wine and drink in the 180 degree views. Peace and exhilaration in one trip, one day!

“Perfect!”
Reviewed 2 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Niki and Jer - thank you for this wonderful opportunity to stay at CliffWaters. The view was breathtaking. The ambiance was reminiscent of cottage life when I was a child. My children were in their happy place in the loft. Serenity and privacy in abundance. Absolute tranquility. Best place we visited this vacation !!

“Pure enchantment!”

My husband and I stayed at Cliff Waters for 4 nights, to celebrate our 30th anniversary. We were looking for something special and off the beaten track. We had always wanted to explore Nova Scotia and this was the perfect opportunity.

When I found Cliff Waters on TripAdvisor, l knew I had found just the right place. The photos and the reviews captivated me immediately. They were unlike any I had ever seen. It was clear that everyone who had stayed at Cliff Waters had been bewitched and were reluctant to leave!

The "cottage" sits on a hill overlooking the St. Lawrence, and the view of the sunsets from the deck are breathtaking. The cottage itself is lovely - cozy, with warm human touches, all the amenities we needed, and comfortable furniture, including the queen-size bed. There was a sweet welcome card and wildflower bouquet waiting for us on the kitchen counter. You feel as though you are staying in the cottage of a thoughtful friend.

If you enjoy cooking, as I do, you will find what you need to prepare your own meals - after shopping locally for provisions. There are also good restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Niki's list of resources is not only invaluable it is also brautifully written!

There is so much surrounding natural beauty that you could be perfectly content to spend your entire time in the immediate area, but it is well worthwhile to take advantage of driving or walking along the nearby Cabot Trail, taking an excursion to the summer home of Alexander Graham Bell in Baddeck, or going on a whale watch, to name a few of the many possible adventures.

Finally, but certainly not least of all, there are not enough accolades for Niki and Jeremy, the owners of Cliff Waters, or for their 2 young children. They are some of the most genuinely kind, charming, sparkling, and warm-hearted people we have ever met. Unforgettable. Which could also have been the title of this review!

“Unforgettable honeymoon in paradise!”
Reviewed 11 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We spent 4 nights in this beautiful cottage enjoying fresh air, gorgeous views, epic sunsets, cozy campfires, peace and quiet. The cottage is clean, spacious, relaxing and functional. Love the full kitchen, washer/dryer, huge deck, comfy bed and very nice bathroom. It provides you with plenty of privacy and isolation, yet you are close to all the area attractions (hiking, whale watching, national parks, great seafood, etc). Also, you are provided with wifi and a landline phone (free long distance in Canada and the U.S.) We didn't mind not having cell service one bit! Great to truly unplug and relax. The cottage owners Niki and Jer are amazing hosts, we were truly wow'd by our experience. We fell in love with the village of Pleasant Bay (we didn't want to leave!). When staying at Cliff Waters you are just a few minutes away from the Rusty Anchor (great food and drinks!), a gift shop with delicious ice cream cones, a general store and more. Cliff Waters was the perfect honeymoon location! Our only regret was not staying longer. :)
