Cottage
Both of our cedar log cottages are located right on the magnificent Bras d'Or Lake and are hidden from each other in a twelve acre wooded area to secure your privacy. They are fully equipped for your holiday (towels and linens, cookware and dishes provided), with a nice kitchen, outdoor barbecue, and all the amenities. Each cottage has a comfortable living room, and two bedrooms (1 Queen size, the other 2 single beds), bathroom , veranda, electric heating. The cottages are a proven favourite for honeymooners, but even a family of five can be housed, and all may enjoy the quiet retreat and the potential that the Bras d'Or Lake offers. Use our splendid beach to stretch out in the sun, have a swim, go snorkelling or fishing or just wander off collecting beach rocks.

Exceptional host
Unfortunately, just days before our trip, my partner injured his back and we were unable to drive the 20+ hours to Cape Breton from Ontario. With deep regret, we had to cancel our booking. Though no doubt inconvenienced by the short notice of our cancellation, the host showed genuine concern for my partner's well being. You can bet we will book again! We can't wait to meet this wonderful proprietor, and spend time taking in the beauty of Bras D'Or Lake.

Perfect place to relax
We really enjoyed our stay. It's the perfect place to relax with lake view and access to a private beach. We enjoyed watching the deer and hummingbirds around the cabin and the sunset at the beach.

I cannot wait till next year knowing that there is a little piece of paridise waiting for me again.
This location was my dream vacation. It was more than I expected. The cottage was the perfect size with all accommodations that I expected. The view was breath taking. I am a beach walker so it was perfect as that is where I spent my afternoons. The peaceful and serenity I have taken away from this vacation is indescribable. Eberhard, thank you for such a awesome location right up to welcoming us and extending a hand shake as we depart for home.Truly magnificent. Sylvia Milligan

Heaven on Earth
This cottage has everything you need, a grill, a full kitchen, comfy beds and a breathtaking view. It's impeccably clean and well maintained and no mosquito or fly could get in because the window screens were tight. Being able to enjoy a cool breeze with no bugs in the house is key. Your backyard is a scenic pebble beach. I didn't see a single soul the whole time I was there. Not a touristy area but this is where Canadians have their weekend cabins. The owner stopped by and was available as a resource but not intrusive at all. A lovely guy.

Gorgeous View, Very Comfortable Cottage
We stayed in the boathouse- it was very spacious but cozy! The view was spectacular, the lake is less than 50 ft from the cottage. We had a wonderful time, despite the weather being cold and rainy. The cottage was a perfect getaway, and we can't wait to come back again!

Wonderful hospitality....
This rental was all that was expected and Eberhard was very helpful and insightful. We enjoyed the stay very much and most especially the stone beach access. We would recommend this option to anyone wanting a peaceful stay on Cape Breton Island.

Wonderful,quiet ,comfortable cabins with a spectacular view.
Hi : We rented our cabin for two months. Boathouse cabin during July and log cabin during August. Both cabins are comfortable and have a view of the water. No TV or internet but we did not miss either. A short 15 minute ride for shopping or connecting to the internet.. St Peters is a small town that offers ocean views and hiking. Information center offers plenty of info on what is happening in the area. People are very friendly and helpful.

You were wonderful guests, so relaxed, going with the flow, starting to be part of the community. And you were my longest staying guests, never a complaint but good advice and help on some items. Thanks again and hope you come back here one day .

Relaxing
We stayed at the 'boathouse' a cottage on the water where we could paddle for miles on Bras D'or was perfect for us. Not fancy but clean and roomy enough to be comfortable for a week. No TV, no internet and maybe the furniture was a little uncomfortable. Or maybe I just missed my recliner. If it wasn't a two day trip to get here I would visit every year.

Great Stay and great host
Our stay with Eberhard was perfect! the cottage we stayed in was very clean and well equipped and we had only a few meters to walk to get to the lake where you can go swimming, kayaking or just relax at the beach. the nature is beautiful and there is nobody to disturb you in your peace and tranquility. Eberhard was very welcoming and helpful and always with a smile in his face. We would totally recommend this place for couples that love nature and like to spend a few days without that usual hectic pace that you know from big cities. Thanks Eberhard, we will come back!
