St. Peter's, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia
Our two 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 also provided), with a nice kitchen and all the amenities, barbecue, living room, two bedrooms
(1 queensize, the other 2 single beds), bathroom , veranda, electric heating. It's a proven favorite 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 snorkeling or fishing or just wander off collecting beach rocks.

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.

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...

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!

Management response:

Thanks for the great review. You were on your honeymoon and I am so glad that despite the rain you had such a good time. Best wishes for you as a now married couple
