Cute house, quiet location
We had a lovely time at this property over Thanksgiving. The house was plenty big for the five of us, the kitchen was a good size and surprisingly well stocked. The owners communicated frequently to ensure we knew everything we needed to know.

Foot of Cabot Trail, Cape Breton NS
Many thanks for allowing us to stay at your house, it is the cleanest property we have stayed at with VRBO. The hosts are gracious and so accomodating, we loved our vacation time. We will definitely be back hopefully in October and again next year. Kim & Bonita

Very pleased!!
Germaine and Roland were very warm and welcoming. The house was spotless with all the comforts of home. Location was key for us, close to the entrance of the skyline trail for hiking and right at the beginning of the most scenic part of the Cabot trail (the west coast side). There was a grocery store nearby and a few restaurants/pubs with live music. My wife and I loved the place and would highly recommend it to any and all travelers visiting the area.

Great holiday home
We rented the larger, four bedroom vacation home which was a well-equipped and comfortable place to stay - perhaps because this was Germaine's own home at one time. The kitchen was well equipped; the living room had a comfortable couch and three easy chairs, most with foot rests, and a large screen smart TV. We entered our own Netflix information and were able to watch Netflix in addition to regular satellite channels. The beds were also very comfortable and we had a great sleep. The ocean is at the bottom of the property. There is a gazebo where you could picnic or drink your tea while watching the waves break along the shore. On our first night, we saw a beautiful sunset. The house is located just south of Cheticamp, where there is regular music Saturday afternoon and Saturday night at the Doryman Pub. We attended the afternoon fiddle (and keyboard) session which was amazing Down East music. Just north of town you can walk the Sunset trail on a guided tour or on your own. All in all, it is a great place to stay and near lots of great activities.
