If you like water sports then launch your canoe from the property into South Harbour and spend hours enjoying nature and the scenery
If you'd rather relax and enjoy the views, visit Cape Breton Highlands National Park for some of the Island's most spectacular scenery. Or if you prefer something a little more lively, tap your toes to some Cape Breton Celtic music, which can be enjoyed at festivals and events around the Cabot Trail.

What a great place. I’m glad we ended with some great weather. This view at the cabin is probably one of the best on the island. Also that beach near us was probably the best beach on the island. We just about had it to ourselves this afternoon.

“Wow - A spectacular view! We traveled with our two young children and the cabin was equipped with everything we needed. We especially appreciated the screened-in porch, the dock, and the cliff side fire pit overlooking the harbour. The location was perfectly located nearby several sandy beaches, a harbour for water sports, zip lining, and many hiking trails. Peter was on-site to answer any questions and even graciously researched hikes that our kids might enjoy. Clean, quiet, and the perfect stay-cation we were looking for. Thank you!”

Such an incredible location to stay. A perfect weekend getaway from the city. The communication was on another level, super easy and quick, Peter was very helpful since the beginning, available at all times whenever we had a question. The location of the cottage is out from fairy tale, the view of the ocean is breathtaking. Great location to get to any hiking trails. Totally recommend it, and I would definitely be coming back!

South Harbour is breathtaking. The view from Peter's place is spectacular!!! 2 min. drive to one of the top beaches on the Island. All you hear are the birds and the sound of the waves..... perfect place to watch the sunset, have a fire and see the stars. The cottage is charming and has all you need, perfect spot to launch your kayak or canoe, so much to do and see, or do nothing, perfect for that too. Also, check out Danena's bakery!!!! best hot Cappuccino, blueberry scones and cinnamon rolls, menu looked interesting

We absolutely loved our stay at Peter’s cottage. Everything was exactly as described. The location and experience was amazing. Peter is a great host and communication was A+. My family is looking forward to coming back again!

“Top notch customer service from Peter! He went above and beyond for us when we had car problems mid trip. The cottage was extremely clean and stocked with supplies. Easy to see signage from the road and the communication with Peter was clear and easy. There is a gas station close and the location is pretty central to tons of hikes and swimming spots. BEAUTIFUL sunsets. My family and I were extremely comfortable here and would 100% recommend this cottage!”
A little note makes all the hard work building the cabins and maintaining them, cleaning and garden work...all worth while
September through October enjoy the ever changing colours,every corner you drive around on the trail is a completelydifferent palette of colours.
