Very clean and large home
We had a great stay. 5 bedrooms and 3 baths worked great for us. Sunset was beautiful as described. Great place for a group of people to us as a golf vacation rental. We would rent it again. .

Perfect view
The view of Lake Ainslie, the largest fresh water lake in NS, was mesmerizing. Great location to visit the Cabot Trail and Bras d’or Lakes. The best seafood chowder is found in Whycocomagh at Charlene’s. Lunch at the Dancing Goat a must. The home has all the amenities. Communication was excellent. Mary checked in to see how we were doing mid week. Kudos.

Great Stay
The house was very clean and very spacious and comfortable for our group. The house overlooks the lake and the view is beautiful. Our first night the sunset was gorgeous. Google maps over shot the driveway so we had to turn around to get back to it and look specifically for the marker Mary mentioned to us, which was a bit hard to see in the dark, that was our only hiccup. Mary was very fast to reply to me every time and was a pleasure to deal with. Thank you!

One of the best AB@Bs I’ve ever stayed at!
Beautiful location, breathtaking views of the lake, private, spectacular house, well organized and stocked with pretty well everything needed. Fire pit was a wonderful evening escape with a sky full of stars! Within easy drive to beaches and amenities. Made our family happy!!!
