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.

Ein wunderbarer Platz zum Erholen
Einfaches Ferienhaus direkt am See gelegen. Die Kanus und Kajaks standen jederzeit zur Verfügung. Wunderschöne Natur, man kann Seeadler, Kolibris, Glühwürmchen, Rehe und Hasen beobachten. Abends lauscht man am Lagerfeuer den Konzerten der Frösche und Grillen. Wer Ruhe und Natur mag, ist hier genau richtig. Nur unsere Mitreisenden unter 18 Jahren haben das Internet, Fernsehen und einen Geschirrspüler vermiss. Der Gastgeber ist sehr nett und immer ansprechbar.

Perfect family vacation!!!!
If you enjoy the sounds of nature, then this is the place for you!! The log cabins are the perfect spot for a quiet retreat and place to get away from it all. From the cozy cottage to the very private beach, it's a little piece of heaven!! Mr. Witt is a very friendly and helpful man. The cottages are very well equipped. Everything you need to enjoy your stay is provided for you. We spent a week in cottage 2, with our children ages 7 and 9. It truly was a wonderful family holiday!! We were sad to have to leave. Looking forward to returning next year!!

A Wonderful Retreat!
We really enjoyed staying in one of Eberhard's lovely cottages at Bras d'Or Lake. Especially we loved the peaceful surroundings when canoeing or kayaking on this lake with its clear water - and quite often we even could watch eagles flying by.... Eberhard, our host, was extremely friendly and helpful when we had a request. The cabin was very clean and everything we needed was provided. We had such a wonderful and relaxing time! That's why we plan to go there again - but next time for a longer period!

Nice cabin awesome kayaking
We had a great time. The cabin was very comfortable and homey, a full kitchen with all the pots and pans made staying so much easier. It was reasonable to bring the kayaks down to the lake and onto the beach. Make sure to tie the kayaks at night it gets windy. We had an awesome paddle. Eberhard was fun and helpful during our stay. A great stop on our vacation.

Zen Retreat
Eberhard built this fair tale like wood cottage in the woods and about 50 yards from the private beach. We had dinners, wines and tea on the porch with the full view of the Bras d'Or Lake; and hamming birds zipping over the dining table. The everything in the cottage is spotless clean. All kitchen and bathroom supplies are well-stocked, and water and electronic equipment is perfectly functioning. Each room is fitted and decorated with comfort and taste in mind. The view around the cottage is beautiful beyond words ( see a few samples of my pictures). The host Eberhard always responses our emails within a day. He is extremely kind and friendly. Eberhard is very knowledgable about the areas and provides guidances when consulted. Like other guests said, Eberhard is always there when he is needed and absent when you enjoy the Lake and Island. He is an expert of Kayaking. Eberhard took my family kayaking in the Lake while eagles soaring above the blue sky. Eberhard has zen-like approach toward the material side of everything, and we feel totally relaxed just being around him. We had best summer vacation ever. Thank you, Eberhard, for everything! We definitely will come back!

Schönheit und Harmonie unberührter Natur
Für knapp zwei Wochen war ich Ende Juli/Anfang August im Bootshaus-Cottage von Eberhard Witt. Ein Ort, an dem man wirklich Ruhe finden und wunderbar entspannen kann. Beeindruckend ist die wunderschöne, unberührte Natur, am Strand oder unterwegs mit dem Kajak oder Kanadier begegnet man keiner Menschenseele. Um diese Jahreszeit ist der Bras d'Or Lake auch wirklich wunderbar zum Baden und Schnorcheln. Das Cottage ist sehr gut eingerichtet und bietet alles, was man braucht. Eberhard Witt ist ein sehr freundlicher und unkomplizierter Gastgeber. Man kann bei ihm aus einer breiten Palette von Kajaks und Kanadiern auswählen, was man möchte. Das Cottage ist auch ein sehr guter Ausgangspunkt für Touren auf dem Cabot Trail oder zu den nahegelegenen Atlantikstränden. Unbedingt zu empfehlen!

Great Cabin Getaway
We rented one of the two log cabins on the lake. It was charming and cozy with a bit of an 'old world' touch. The cottage was well equipped with kitchen supplies. Sleeping and bathroom facilities (includes a shower) were comfortable and functional. Lots of seating indoor and out. Lovely natural surroundings and directly above the lake. The lake access was the chief draw for us. We spent a lot of time on the pebble beach swimming, fishing, having fires. Great for families, groups of friends. Huge deserted beach. Incredibly peaceful and beautiful. We also kayaked from the owners dock up the road. Very enjoyable. The owner is very nice. I would recommend that the property owner improve the beach access - the home made stone and wood steps are a bit precarious and eventually someone is going to fall there.

Perfect cabin on beautiful lake with outstanding host
If you want to book a great cabin on a beautiful lake and have a friendly and accommodating host, then BOOK THIS PLACE!! I booked this cabin from Eberhard for my daughter's honeymoon. He was great to communicate with, met them upon arrival, and acted as their host / tourist center for their stay in Cape Breton. Eberhard is a thoughtful and gracious host, and his cabin was perfect. It was like staying with family.

Provided the Honey in our honeymoon!
The first leg of our honeymoon could not have been more perfect! We were greeted warmly by our lovely German host, Eberhard. His hospitality made us feel at home from the very beginning. He made it very easy for us to make the most of our time in Cape Breton by informing us of all there was to do in the area. We also were able to share wine and a delightful conversation with him! Cabin 1 was just as welcoming with its rustic and serene characteristics it is literally right in the middle of the woods right in view of the Bras d'or lake which was breathtaking every single time. Our second night there we witnessed, quite possibly, the most breathtaking sunset my wife and I had ever seen. No one else was around and the pebble beach was indescribable. We were surprised to learn that many of the attractions were at least 30 minutes-2 hours away but this was perfect when we wanted a nice relaxing drive. The scenery during each drive was unmatchable. Eberhard is an excellent Kayak instructor and a highlight for us was the morning spent on the lake behind his property kayaking, and witnessing the wildlife while gliding through the crisp and clear water. We built a fire, got to get our drinking water from a fresh spring, enjoyed nature, and explored Cape Breton. A fully excellent stay with sweet memories. We could not have asked for a better start to our marriage and honeymoon!
