    Convenient location

    This home is in a beautiful location and has access to the most beautiful parts of Cape Breton. The rural area adds to its charm. The fully equipped kitchen and reading materials about the area left for guests were helpful and interesting. We enjoyed St. Andrews in Tarbot on Sunday, the Alexander Graham Bell Museum in Baddeck, and attending a local ceilidh down the road, too. As far as trails go, Middle Head was our favorite. Hiking temps were great----55 to 75 degrees! Cabot Trail affords many breathtaking views. Wish we could have stayed longer!

    Incredible stay in Cape Breton

    Everything about the stay was beyond what we imagined. The place was absolutely perfect (especially the kitchen and living room) with beautiful art hanging throughout the house. Communication with the owner was great, with many great conversations and always there when we needed something along with some great recommendations. Can't wait to stay here again!

    The House on the Hill

    Exactly as advertised. The pictures actually don't do it justice. We enjoyed a week of peace and quiet! The home is very clean and comfortable. Very quaint and cozy. Nick was available when needed, which was not much. The area has some very interesting artisans, especially the glass blowers and the home-made chocolates. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you NIck and Judy!

    5/5 Excellent

    A great beautiful, quiet place to stay.

    We loved this location. We arrived late at night after midnight and Nick went out of his way to go to the bottom of the driveway and flash his lights. We loved the 4 seasons porch in the mornings sitting out there with our coffee and books. We flew and did some hiking so had to have lots of gear. It was so helpful with all the amenities that we needed there and available to us. We would definitely stay here again if we get back to Cape Breton. Thanks Nick and Judy.

    roomy, comfortable rental with a rustic feel

    Nick is a good communicator and easy to deal with. He sent us a detailed description of the road to follow to his place in Breton Cove, and when we arrived, he was waiting for us at the end of the driveway and accompanied us to the house to give us a tour and to answer any questions we might have. He let us know that he'd be available if we needed him, but we didn't and we didn't see him the 6 days we were there. The location is very private and there is no outside noise. The house is comfortable and well appointed, with a rustic feel to it. The kitchen has absolutely everything you need, and is exceptionally clean, the pots and pans are of excellent quality, and there are lots of plates, cups, glasses, etc. We did quite a bit of cooking, but there are also take-outs in the vicinity including a good pizza place and the General store, which sells great lobster and crab sandwiches (Seagull in Ingonish has delicious lobster rolls and Charlene's is worth going out of your way for, just for the seafood chowder). The house is roomy and has a good deal of natural light. Everything worked without a hitch, TV, lights, shower, dishwasher, washer/dryer. Nick left lots of pamphlets and a map of the area, and a few books on things to do in Cape Breton. We enjoy hiking and found interesting trails every day, our favourite being the Franey trail, which has stunning views from the peak. We highly recommend this rental to anyone who wants to spend time in the area.
