“A lovely, enjoyable, eclectic experience.”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

It was a perfect getaway for us. Ken, the owner made us feel very welcome in his cottage rental. It was well equipped. He even had a wood burning fire going for us to take the chill off in late September. We visited his artist studio the next morning before we left. We enjoyed the blueberries he gave us. We would love to return for a longer summer rental sometime. My daughter fell in love with the place.

Comfortable space to relax and unplug filled with an eclectic collection of original art. Gorgeous view of Lake Ainsley in a charming older cottage close to many trails, nature hikes and beaches. It was a beautiful way to enjoy this part of Cape Breton. It was so nice to relax by the fire with a glass of wine after long nature hikes. Truly an inspiring space that we are looking forward to come back to in coming seasons.

“Great, unusual place to stay”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Surprisingly comfortable, well decorated house. Lots of artsy treasures and beautiful, if remote, surroundings.
