“Relaxing”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

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”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

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!

“Perfect family vacation!!!!”
Reviewed 19 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

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!”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

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”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

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.
