A great place to stay. The cabin was perfect. It was nice to have a fire overlooking the bay. I highly recommend staying there. Peter was a gracious and helpful host. Thanks.


ere’s what Arla wrote

This place is simply wonderful. Great proximity to explore all the beautiful scenery thatCape Breton has to offer. Close to all the wonderful trails , waterfalls , beaches and secluded hideaways. Peter was great checking in , helping me get acclimated to the area , friendly meeting on arrival and a friendly goodbye upon departure , definitely come back! Oh Yes and Peter reminded me to look at the blanket of stars that will cover the cottage in the evening. So glad he told me for I found myself at two in the morning stargazing ….magnificent! The sacredness of creation can truly be found here. Thank you Peter for reminding me!

The cabin is located in a great spot if you are visiting the national park for a few days. The cabin also comes with an amazing view of the South Harbour and enjoys a total privacy, not to mention the host is very easy to communicate. A perfect stay!


ere’s what Justine wrote

We had such a great and relaxing stay ! The cabin was immaculate and the location was perfection. We loved hiking the white point trail which was such a gem of a spot that was centrally located to the cabin. We also loved that it was tucked away for privacy but still close to the rest of the trails to explore. Myles and Jackie were the sweetest people and we cant wait to stay here again ! Thanks again. Until next time !

Fantastic location. Had everything we needed in a cottage. Great access to hiking in Northern Cape Breton.


ere’s what Hanna wrote

This cabin is right on the edge of the coast by the sea, and you can't beat the view here. The sunsets and sunrises were absolutely beautiful, and the night sky at night is stunning. The stars were so bright and clear; I've never seen a night sky that clear and beautiful before, and there were so many constellations that were clearly identifiable. I wish my friends and I hadn't packed our schedule so full so we could've had a fire in the fire pit (there was plenty of firewood available, and there were matches inside the cabin), sitting outside drinking hot chocolate, and just enjoying the view. It really made me wish that we'd booked another day at this airbnb so that we could have done that. The cabin itself is very cute and cozy. It seemed very new, and had a pleasant pine smell inside. I have to warn you though: there are a lot of wood bugs here. It's very normal for a wooden cabin in a rural area like this (it can't be avoided and is not a cleanliness issue - this is just how it is in nature), but it's something city folks might want to keep in mind so that it's a shock. I'd also recommend bringing mosquito repellent as there are quite a lot of those buggers. Peter was very prompt and helpful, and Myles was very kind and welcoming.

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!

We really enjoyed our stay. It was exactly what we were looking for as a launch site for our hikes -- perfect location for easy access to both the west and east sides of the park. We stayed in Cabin 1 and *greatly appreciated* having the screened in porch. The cabin was wonderful and the care put into this space is appreciated. Thank you! Highly recommend and would stay again.

Beautiful bay front property and a lovely warm cabin feel. Also they had a ton of birds to watch from the driveway (hummingbirds, finches, warblers, and waterbirds were seen).


ere’s what Vicky wrote

We absolutely loved our stay at Peter’s cabin. The beach located 1km away was one of the most beautiful beaches we’ve ever visited. The cabin was lovely - clean, comfortable and the screened in porch was certainly a bonus! The sunset was beautiful. Thanks to Myles and Peter for their hospitality. 5 stars across the board. We hope to visit again sometime.

We had an amazing stay at Little Brook Cottage #1. It's conveniently located just outside the national park, and is in close proximity to a few beautiful unspoiled beaches and local trails. This is truly a great spot if you're seeking quality uninterrupted R and R.

ere’s what Wendy wrote

What a lovely cabin and stunning view! It’s right alongside the waters (lake AND ocean) but is not humid inside. AC works strong and the washroom and shower is clean and neat. We spent 3 nights here and got the flavours of Cape Breton with and without clouds. Feeling blessed and a million thanks to Peter!

 

ere’s what Jonathon wrote

It’s a perfect peaceful getaway. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Cabin was full stocked with all the essentials…Peter was a fantastic host with great communication leading up to our stay! I would highly recommend LittleBrooks Cottages! Can’t wait to come back someday.


ere’s what Andy wrote

We really enjoyed our stay , the water fall beside the bedroom made it hard to get out of bed!! Very clean and well equipped cabin. View was spectacular!!

ere’s what Oly wrote

It was the perfect place for us for a week stay. Peter took great care of us - was very helpful, going above and beyond. The cabin also features his beautiful handmade table. The place was small but completely functional (we were in cabin #1). The wifi was handy to have. It was such a treat to walk down to the dock immediately below our cabin to watch the most spectacular sunrises I've ever seen. If/when we come back to Cape Breton Island, this is definitely where we'd stay.

Here’s what Wayne wrote

Beautiful, breathtaking scenery! Charming little cabin, good for a group or family of four or five. The place was clean and the host Peter was great! He was punctual, very informative and accommodating. The location was convenient, just about at the midway point on the CabotTrail. And oh, did I mention the scenery… it’s absolutely stunning, morning noon and night!


Here’s what Laura wrote

We looked at many places in diff areas of Cape Breton online (& drove by most of them when travelling the Cabot Trail) Each time we looked at each other & exclaimed how grateful we were to have landed at the magical 'Little Brook' cottage. The view is spectacular from right inside the cabin- so even on the occasional bad weather day you can soothe your soul with that mesmerizing view of the mountains, ocean, harbour - & incredible skies- best sunrise ever! Close to many great trails & lovely beach to enjoy just a short jaunt down the road. Basic groceries, gas, & a few restaurants conveniently located in the area. We couldn't have asked for a nicer host - helpful with all practicalities & tips- thanks so much for an unforgettable experience Peter!


Here’s what Shichen wrote

Excellent place to stay with a great view. The stars are clear at night.

Here’s what Laura wrote

We watched a sunset for an hour here! It was astounding. We were grateful to have a place that was so close to all the spots we wanted to see. It was very cozy and Peter was extremely communicative and accommodating. We cooked a few meals, swam of the dock and delighted in the surroundings.

Here’s what Lennard wrote

Beautiful cozy spot. The view is spectacular! Prefect mid way place on the Cabot Trail.

Here’s what Steve wrote

Just had a short 2 day stay at Peter’s cabin. The location was excellent and the view from the cabin was splendid. Be sure to check out Theodore Fricker ( formerly Tenerife) hike. Grueling but well worth it. We also enjoyed the drive to Meat cove. Highly recommend Peter’s place. His communication was excellent.

Peter was amazing! So quick to help with all your needs! Answered all questions and gave great advice on where to go and what to see!

Here’s what John wrote

Our stay at Little Brook cottage was excellent. Beautiful quiet location with a view of the mountains on the north side of the bay & the ocean breaking on the beach to the east. Do yourself a favour and hike out to this quiet beach. You'll find a trail down the road. Peter was very helpful and guided us in any questions we had. The cottage is clean & quaint. All essentials for cooking are there. The front screened in porch was handy and used often to avoid the inevitable dusk time mosquitos. Good location to explore northern Cape Breton sites. Short pretty coastal drive to the Chowder House in Neil's Harbour. A gem of a place to stay.

Here’s what Karen wrote

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 had such a great stay! Peter was a great host and was so easy to communicate with. The views are unbeatable. The place is very clean and the cottage is super cute . We got to enjoy dinner out on the repurposed table, a swim in the local swimming hole, and an amazing beach day at the gorgeous south harbour beach! We followed it up by playing games on the front deck in the evening. Perfect vacation. We will definitely be back!

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!”


Here’s what Deanne wrote

“Thanks Peter for a great weekend in Cape Breton. It was the perfect location for all our hiking adventures. Peter was very quick to respond to texts. We arrived really late on our first night, as we had a long drive, but that did not matter to Peter and he met us upon arrival. We needed the water replenished part way during our stay and Peter was quick to respond with a new bottle. The cottage has amazing views. We were not there long but it was a great short visit.”

Here’s what Peter Jacobs (newfoundland) wrote

Beautiful place, enjoyed my stay.


Here’s what Elina and Chris wrote

We are so glad we found your cottage, it was more than perfect and exactly what we envisioned for our nights stay on the trail! Almost disappointed the forecast changed a bit and probably won't rain too bad, or we would have gladly stayed another night. The fire pit overlooking the water was a perfct reminder of our life back home at the cottage and the trillion stars in the clear sky was a true bonus, you surely can't beat this view. Thank you for taking us in at the last minute, you definitely lived up to the generosity of the east coast we love back home.

Can't wait to return, all for now,the second half of the amazing Cabot Trail awaits us!!

Absolutely recommend you book this place if you can!!”

We were so happy to find this place on our drive around the Cabot Trail! The view was incredible and the cottage so warm and cozy.

“We had a fabulous stay at Peter’s cabin near Dingwall! The views were stunning-and we had some great sunsets while we were there. Peter was quick to respond to all questions and helped us to find activities in the area. The cabin is very new, and everything was clean and in good condition. The water dispenser was definitely a much appreciated feature.”


Here’s what Paulina wrote

“I cannot think of a more mystical tranquil & secluded retreat. The cottage is extremely cozy and to sit outside beneath the stars and watch the moon rise over south harbor was pure magic. The fog burning off of the sea as the sun rose and the waterfall nearby only added to the raw earthly beauty of this oasis. We enjoyed sitting on the screen porch So much as well! a short drive to all of the points along the Cabot trail as well.”

Peter was especially communicative and responsive and gave us great local tips. Highly recommended!!!”


Here's what Allan wrote

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.
