Beautiful Historic Cottage in Baddeck NS
This is a beloved, well-appointed property which is an excellent home-base for exploring Cape Breton. Our family would definitely stay there again.
Stayed 8 nights in May 2022

5/5 Excellent

Wow! A extremely unique rental.
This property was well suited to our vacation needs close to the town of Baddeck. Kitchen had loads of extras, beds were comfy and lots of space to hang out on the covered deck. Everyone loved the outside shower! Our family and friends enjoyed dinners around the large dining table. The listing was spot on and we were able to enjoy day trips and relax with a fire in the evening. Thank you Jan for all your great communications. You have a very special place at Kildare and we loved experiencing the history of your little piece of Cape Breton heaven.

I’m blown away!
If you are looking to experience beautiful Cape Breton views and history - this is the place. The home is beautiful and has everything you need for you and your group. We spent a week at Kildare with my family in the summer of 2021 and made wonderful memories cooking, BBQ’ing, swimming, looking for sea glass, enjoying the fire pit, and exploring. Highly recommended.

5/5 Excellent

Nothin better
We hit a ‘home run’ with this Home Away rental. It was well-provisioned, clean, well-appointed and conveniently located for our needs. We were in Nova Scotia for the Celtic Colours festival—something everyone should attend. The rental provided us a very comfortable stay for our plans. We could not have done better. The rental would be a great choice for a family gathering.

5/5 Excellent

Maybe the best place we've ever stayed!
Jan's property was all that we wanted and much more. Although we were in Baddeck for only one week, we felt as if we were at home there. For a reader/writer, what can be better than walking into a lovely living room with one whole wall of books that are obviously well-read? And then the view! We were able to meet Jan personally, which was a lovely touch to a perfect vacation! I can't give this home enough accolades.
