I drove in with my family from Dartmouth to cape Breton . We decided to stay here. It was incredible! The cottage was spacious and clean . Our view was just absolutely breathtaking. The staff was very friendly as well. I would definitely recommend these cabins to anyone looking for an awesome stay in cape Breton !

These cottages are right on Ingonish harbor with lovely views from deck. They are super clean cottages with well equipped kitchens and the owners are lovely people and very helpful. Our bed in #6 was good. The internet was fine! We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed it very much. There is also a laundromat for a small charge.

We stayed one night on our journey on the Cabot Trail and the cottage was comfortable and clean. The beds were good, the bathroom was clean and the cottage was roomy. It had a nice wood burning fireplace if you like to have a fire. Also it had a nice deck with a great view.

Our cottage smelled musty, the toilet barely flushed and the bed was very uncomfortable. One side was about eight inches higher than the other side. And God help you if you have to sleep on the futon like my sister did. Very saggy, old and uneven. The sad part was, it was expensive to boot!

Stayed here only 1 night instead of two because it was pouring but the cottage was cute, had a wonderful view of the bay and the lady at the front was very nice and accomodating. It was a big 2 bedroom cottage with tons of room 5-6 people could sleep comfortably in there!

This is charming and just as the pictures show, the beds were good not great, and the room was clean. The Wi-Fi was week, the TV did not work. I wish they had better windows or a glass door out to the water view, what a waste not to be able to enjoy this view. Walls between rooms were thin...

These cabins are so charming! The view from the deck was absolutely incredible and can with a BBQ! They had a fire pit area and a swing set for kids! For 4 adults no problem. The rooms were comfortable and clean. I highly recommend Knotty Pines cottages!

The view was gorgeous, the kitchen was well equipped and overall the cabin was quite comfortable. The beds however, were not very good and we were disappointed that our cabin was so close to the highway.

Our family booked multiple cottages for a family gathering in July 2015. All the cottages were very clean & comfortable. It's nice to have a kitchen & Gas BBQ for the option to eat-in, and living rooms & back decks to entertain family. The owners and staff were very helpful, their convenience store is handy : ) Excellent view of...
