Incredible stay! The scenery is beautiful with a calm and tranquil atmosphere. The cabin itself is spotless and had everything we needed for a 2 night stay in Cape Breton. Sunrise and sunsets are spectacular!

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!

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.

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!!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

We really enjoyed our stay. The location was fantastic for exploring the national park and other beautiful spots in the immediate area. The cottage was super clean and comfortable with a breathtaking view. The air conditioning was an added bonus with the heat wave during our visit! Peter was an excellent host. Highly recommend this cottage and hope to return.

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!

“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!”

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 Meghan wrote

“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 staycation we were looking for. Thank you!”

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!!

“This little cottage is the perfect home base for the Cape North area. We explored Meat Cove and White Point both recommended by Peter who was full of great suggestions of what to do in the area. We stayed here for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. Set up perfectly with everything you need. Great spot with a breathtaking view of the ocean. 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. The cottage was equipped with everything we could possibly need including a screen room so we able to enjoy the outside and the view without the pesky bugs. We enjoyed our peaceful night overlooking a beautifully calm South Harbor, it was amazing! Also, a thank you to our host Peter, we felt most welcomed! We will for sure be visiting again ?

Here’s what Debbie wrote

“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.”

“Breathtakingly beautiful spot with gorgeous view over looking the bay and the ocean. The beach is only a 15 minute walk from the house. The house had absolutely everything you need to cook and to be comfortable. AC, Wi Fi, even a screened deck to keep the bugs away. 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.
