“Beautiful location 30 mins from Sydney and Baddeck”

Beautiful location a few minutes from the main highway to Sydney on a relatively quiet cottage lane. House was clean and had a fully functional kitchen along with wifi and satellite TV. Lorne had the wood stove ready for lighting and we also had a camp fire in the fire pit outside. Very nice spot and enjoyed our time here

“Sulphur in the water, not good.”

Good location, but the drinking water was terrible and stank so bad it was hard to even shower. Close to Sydney and the Cabot Trail.

“Perfect pet friendly cottage rental on the ocean”
Reviewed 7 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

person found this review helpful

This cottage is very inviting and cozy. The premises were spotless and a fully equipped kitchen and cottage. We loved our stay right next to the ocean and the cottage has a wrap around deck and also a campfire pit. we were able to take our German Shepherd and enjoyed a 6km hike to the lighthouse. We would definitely book it again.

“Cosy cabin in the woods by the ocean”
Reviewed 7 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

A magical getaway surrounded by nature and the sea at your back door.
Lorne's cabin was well appointed with central heating, comfy beds, a roaring fire and very quiet. A retreat to get away from it all, put your feet up and read a book if you like.
A great base to explore Cape Breton from and only 15 minutes drive to shops and restaurants in North Sydney.
We stayed for 7 nights and explored most of the island and at the end of each day it was fantastic to come home to our cabin in the woods.
Thanks Lorne, we will see you next year my friend.

“Outstanding Vacation on the Ocean!!”
Reviewed 15 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This had to be one of the best vacations I have ever had!! The cottage was beautiful and taken care of so well. With being so close to the ocean and having everything you need, this made our stay...perfect!! My compliments to the cleaning crew as well. I have never seen a rental so clean and spotless in all my years of travels. Will be coming back again as soon as possible. A home away from home!! Thanks for everything!! Bill A
