Our cozy two-bedroom cottage is a perfect home for your Cape Breton adventure. Walk empty beaches, relax by the sea, hike in the forest and explore the cultural and natural history of a 300 year old fishing village. This cottage is appealing to those looking for access to the wilderness, quiet, or wanting an artist, musician, or writer’s retreat. Enjoy sunrises from the deck, picking wild berries in season, local seafood and community events. The cottage is pet-friendly, and so are we.
The cottage is located on a dead end dirt road with only local traffic. Beach access is across the road. There are several beaches in the area, some in walking distance and others a 10-20 minute drive away. It is a short walk to enter the Gabarus Wilderness Protected Area, to access hours of coastal hiking trail. It is across from a small lake in which we regularly see geese, loons, and ducks (with little ones in spring), beaver, cormorant, swallows, and gulls. Hummingbirds visit the feeder at the house, and deer and snowshoe hare sometimes wander by. The cottage was built in the 1930’s by the son of the people that owned our home. It was their home until the 1990’s, and then was their daughter’s cottage until it was sold to us. The interior was refreshed in 2017. There are two bedrooms (each with a double bed); living room with propane fireplace, chesterfield, a comfortable chair, and a rocking chair; kitchen/dining room, pantry; entry/laundry; and bathroom with a tub/shower. There are windows in every room, making the cozy space bright, with kitchen and living room windows facing the little lake and the ocean. Please see the floor plan in the photos.
Gabarus is a small fishing village located on the edge of Eastern Canada. We have beautiful views of the sun rising out of the Atlantic Ocean. The year-round population is near 75 people, growing in the winter with visitors and seasonal residents. Our village has an over 300 year history, being named for a 15th century Basque ship's captain and settled by the French and then the Scots. The Mi'kmaq were here for thousands of years before that, of course, and the Vikings are rumoured to have visited around 1000 AD. Cape Gabarus is by one author to be the “ship’s cape” mentioned in a Viking saga. The north shore of Gabarus bay is largely taken up by the undeveloped Louisbourg National Historic Site lands. The south shore of the bay is largely the Gabarus Protected Wilderness Area, with hiking, kayaking, and canoeing opportunities for the adventurous. Gabarus Bay was the location of a mermaid sighting reported in the New York Times July 11, 1886, by a relative of the cottage's builder. It was also the staging area for British and Colonial troops laying siege to the French fortified town at Louisbourg in the 1800's.
  • Very good host, very flexible and attentive

  • What a great experience for four Americans from Colorado and Nevada! Our first Nor’Easter, beautiful Atlantic sunrise, and novel-worthy fishing village— all from a sweet little cottage. And so dog-friendly, along with warm hospitality and friendliness!

    Joanna2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • I love Gabarus! If you wanna get away from the touristy areas, this is it! Such a nice quiet area and such a quaint little cottage :)

    Kristin2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Sweet cottage that lives up to it's name. It truly is the Sunrise Cottage. The location is perfect in the small fishing village of Gabarus. The hosts are kind and helpful. I would return in a heartbeat.

    G2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • I don’t know what’s more amazing, this adorable cottage, the gorgeous views, or Tim and Jackie our super super hosts! Our family absolutely loved staying here.

    Paul2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Tim and Jacqueline were truly, truly amazing hosts. They went above and beyond and helped us out of a jam and we are very appreciative. Also the view, location and the cottage were even better than anticipated. We wish we had booked a much longer visit. Thank you so much guys! We hope to be back soon for a longer visit.

    Mandy2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is a perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy all the needed amenities at the same time. The location is spectacular with hiking and the beach so close by. Jackie and Tim are always available for any need, yet you are left in privacy to enjoy the tranquility. The cottage is immaculate and the town folk are so friendly and full of history story telling just for the asking. This place and the village are truly unique and welcoming.

    Jacqueline2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • Wild nature, beautiful sea views, clean and authentic house. The hosts are very friendly and available. Absolute calm close to the small port of Gabarus. The beach at two minutes by a path ... An excellent and too short stay.

    Sitting on 3 acres with views of the village, bay, and the beach on the other side, this is a unique location you won't find anywhere else. You will make memories of walks around the island, the beach, and the local village. Three bedrooms can accommodate a COUPLE who want space to retreat and relax. The view and feel from the cottage is second to none. It would also be perfect for an active FAMILY who would enjoy board games, books, and bonding inside and activities galore outside!
    This two-floor cottage was first built in 1875 by our relatives and has been in the family since. There is an open kitchen with a view. You can retreat to your own rooms for a nap or to relax or spend time together in the living room for games or talking. Hopefully, a good part of your time will be on the front porch or being active outside as well.
    There are only 4 houses on the island and you will feel as isolated as you want to feel. You can walk the village and meet people. There is only one other AirBnB in town and obviously no hotels:).
  • Lovely century homestead with beautiful views all around. We could not have asked for a better stay and hope we can return soon. It was worth while to unplug for a few days and connect/ live simply. Thanks again

    Sarah2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible communication, great value, AMAZING little town, awesome neighbour's, it's all here 👍

    Mac2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Brian was a generous host and his family home was a highlight of our trip. The location is spectacular and the home was simple, charming and perfect for a much needed restorative holiday. We would love to come back.

    Dana2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • The location is absolutely serine. Lovely (small) community, crystal clear waters, clean beach, lots of space to relax! The house is as discribed, older house with all the comforts of home. I stayed with my two kids and we loved every minute of it. It was a refreshing break from technology (no TV, Wifi and very little cell service). There are lots of games in the house, and the outside area is very well kept so it's easy to enjoy the fresh air and the beautiful views Gabarus has to offer! Brian is an excellent host: Friendly and easy to speak with! Communication was clear and without delay before, during and after our stay :)

  • Just came back from spending almost 2 weeks at galens beautiful home. We were delayed getting there thanks to hurricane dorian. When we got there we had no power, neither did 450000 other people in nova scotia. This wonderful community pulled together and they opened the wonderful community centre/firehouse which is less than a 2 minute walk from the house. Everyone was so friendly and kind. Wayne and Nancy were amazing co hosts. So helpful, kind , and always went above and beyond. The pictures do not do the house justice. It is so much larger in person and plenty of room for everyone. We were a family of 6 and we never felt on top of each other. Views where so i start. The view from the deck of the inlet is breathtaking. Sunsets amazing. You can see the ocean and hear the waves. And the sandy beach is a quick 5 min walk around where the fishing boats are docked. Cant wait to return. Location was good as well. Plenty to see and do within less than an hours drive, the fortress of louisbourg, highland village, cabot trail. Whale watching wqs qmazing and only a 2 hour drive away. Highly recommend ingonish whale watching tour. Galen it was a pleasure dealing with you and thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. Until next time.

    Carly2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • I would definitely recommend staying at Galen's place. it"s a great place to reconnect with family, friends and nature while enjoying the most spectacular views.

    Maureen2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Wayne & Nancy and Galen were fantastic co-hosts and were there to meet us when we first arrived. They were very helpful and accommodating. We were also sent off with safe travels. This home felt like home away from home and was comfortable and spacious. The master bedroom was an absolute gem. Amazing views to enjoy your morning coffee each morning. The neighbors were friendly and had advice on the area. Galen was very helpful and quick to respond, as well. Thank you for a lovely vacation away from the hectic everyday life! It was just what we needed!

    Sarah2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice location! The house is really comfortable and the hosts are very helpful! Very recommended!

    Thomas2019-08-04T00:00:00Z

  • Boutique hotels in San Francisco and Los Angeles could learn a thing or two from Shauna and Peter’s Place. I’m a clean freak and this place met my high standards, location is great for access to everything (car is a must in Sydney), and it’s very quiet. Shauna and Peter were easily accessible for any info required. Deserves a Michelin star!

    Kirk2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great time staying in Shauna & Peter's suite! They were extremely accommodating and provided additional touches to their place that were really thoughtful. The suite itself was easy to find, easy to access, extremely clean, and had loads of bonus amenities. Shauna and Peter checked in on me during my stay and were extremely kind. The location was really convenient if you are visiting Membertou Trade & Convention Centre and close enough to downtown Sydney. Definitely would recommend staying here.

    Anastasia2020-02-22T00:00:00Z

    Robert2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Shauna and Peter’s place was wonderful. The unit was incredibly clean and comfortable; with super thoughtful touches that made settling in a breeze. The location is very central and the privacy the unit affords was perfect. I had to extend my stay and their quick response made the process a stress-free breeze. I’d totally recommend staying here for some true east coast hospitality!

    Rob2019-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • This little log cabin is in fact quite spacious with a nice living area, kitchenette, and sleeping space. The bathroom, while small, does not feel cramped. And the location couldn't be better. It is in a beautifully secluded spot right on the Sydney River. The view is very pretty. In the cabin is a book of information about the area with coupons, brochures, notes, and pamphlets. It's also in an incredibly convenient location for sightseeing in lower Cape Breton. I would absolutely stay here again.

  • Our stay at Greg & Delores was great, I regret not being able to stay longer. The room is very spacious and Delores was very sweet and helpful. I highly recommend her place if you want to stay near Sydney.

    Geneviève2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • The suite is amazing, and Delores and Greg are great hosts! The room is even bigger than we thought based on the pictures, the bed is one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in, and the spa tub is a real treat. We added the breakfast option for two of the mornings we were there, and in both cases it was delicious and filling.

    Katrina2019-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely spectacular...like staying at a five star hotel and then some...every detail was thought of right down to the his and her bath robes...treat yourself and make sure you stay at the Back Home Bed and Breakfast...

    Howard2019-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of the best Airbnbs I've ever stayed at. Their home is really gorgeous and spacious. The guest room was much more luxurious than the pictures show. Even the bathroom had an amazing view of the sunset and horses. Delores was an amazing host, she made sure we had everything we needed. The cat is super friendly. The tiny dog might bark at first but he got friendly tok shortly after. I highly recommend staying here, it's a short drive from Sydney.

    Sue2019-06-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great value in a beautiful home.

    Richard2019-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here. Delores and her sons were very welcoming, and the pets were very friendly. The dog was a bit nervous, but was fine if we gave him space. Delores even gave us treats for the horses. The room was massive, nicely styled, with lots of great little touches. There was a jet tub and shower, bathrobes and the softest, fluffy towels we've had this trip. The bed was a king size and extremely comfortable. There were homemade cinnamon rolls and cookies, coffee maker, and fridge in room. There was also access to the full kitchen and living spaces. The family used the kitchen, but were otherwise downstairs so the guests had the upstairs to themselves. Wish we had more time to stay here and would definitely stay here again.

    The drinking water is tested every year and there is a water cooler in the kitchen. The cottage is 30 feet from the fresh and salt water lake called Catalone Lake. The water is great for swimming. The cottage is a half hour drive to Sydney and 15 minutes to the Fortress of Louisbourg.
    The cottage is situated on a lake and is very private and secluded. There are loons, ducks, and geese that call Catalone Lake home. The trout fishing is good in May and June. Major grocery items can be purchased 35 minutes away in Sydney and smaller items at grocery stores in Catalone and Louisbourg. There are various attractions around the industrial area such as the Miners Museum in Glace Bay, Big Fiddle and museums in Sydney, Alexander Graham Bell museum in Baddeck, and the famous Cabot Trail in northern Cape Breton.
    The cottage is very private and the sunsets are beautiful. The cottage is situated 30 feet from the lake and you can see ducks, loons, and sometimes geese. The Fortress of Louisbourg is only 15 minutes away and Sydney a half hour. There is a store/gas station 5 minutes from this location.
  • Great location for a nice quiet getaway. Nothing like waking up to a view of calm waters.

  • Imagine a cozy cabin on a lake, down a gravel road where you feel privacy and can step off your porch to cool off in the water. Then add in comfortable beds, linens, and a well-equipped kitchen. Chilly? Have a fire on the lakefront. We spent two wonderful nights here but could spend a week - it is a delightful getaway hosted by considerate people.

    Anne2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • The ad for this cottage doesn’t do justice on how amazing the place is. The lake is beautiful and it really is a peaceful. Wish we could have stayed longer. It is not big but really cozy and it had everything we needed for our stay. Thank you again to the really nice owners.

    Annie2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage by the lake is really quiet and secluded. Our kids enjoyed a swim in the lake, and we all loved watching the bald eagles catch and eat fish on the trees outside our window. Was a great place to stay while we explored Louisbourg.

    Heather2019-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Pyle's Hideaway is amazing. All the amenities you need are here. The lake is beautiful. The sunsets are amazing the hosts are super sweet and accommodating. I can't rave enough about this place. I will be back again and again!!

    Ang2019-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • A very pleasant and enjoyable stay.

    Albert2019-06-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect lake cabin--everything we dreamed of! We were delighted at how private and peaceful it was. And inside, so very clean and comfy, with super-wonderful linens, too. Loved it!! No slight at all intended towards our wonderful hostess and the adorable cottage, but: a word of caution to other vacationers. This area has no grocery stores! We had to forage in thinly stocked general and convenience stores, finding a sparse selection of nonperishables and a lot of junk food...it's what we foodies call a real "food desert." Yikes. Bring your favorite foods with you, especially fresh fruits and vegetables.

    Teri2019-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is awesome! It was mid-evening when we arrived, so the light was on and the spotless cottage was warm and inviting. The kitchen was well-equipped, the bedrooms were comfortable, and there were movies and games for times when you weren't outside. The patio chairs on the back deck were used both evenings to enjoy the sunset over the lake. Patricia also had some tourism info for things to do and a menu for local takeout. It truly is a great spot to relax.

    Located just outside the fishing village of Main-A-Dieu and just 1 mile from the beach, this clean and cozy cottage will provide a peaceful, comfortable stay while in the area.
  • Very clean and well appointed, all is just as described in the ad. Everything you need is there.

    Ian2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • We arrived in Main-à-Dieu in a very bad weather and we could have an early check in to protect ourselves from the rain and park the car in a safe place. We've listened to the wind and we've watched the rain falling all the afternoon in the cosy house, out of the village . Nothing to do for us but enjoying the place as it was comfortable , clean and typical of what we expected from a private house in Cape Breton : terrasse, garden and no neighbours too close. Good communication too with Rosita.

    Vincent2018-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Adorable and comfortable cottage in beautiful Cape Breton! Everything you need for a wonderful relaxing stay!!

    Marita2018-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay very much! Clean and private. Hope to return someday soon!

    Kate2018-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely quiet spot within easy distance from Sydney and to Louisburg. Hostess was quick to respond to our very late night booking. Found everything we needed to cook meals and have a comfortable stay. Wish we had made time to walk on the boardwalk in Main a Dieu... It looked really interesting. Would stay here again if back in the neighbourhood.

    Carole2018-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • I needed to last minute place close to the Main-a-diea wharf for work. Rosita had the house all set up nice and cozy, it was perfect for me. It is a quick drive from the wharf and water, private and quiet, and stocked with all the necessities and more. I recommend the place and Rosita as a host.

    Jude2018-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • Rosita’s place is in a very nice secluded area, clean and quaint. Highly recommend staying there. Rosita quickly responded to any requests - a great host!!

    Sherry2018-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very sweet home that is so quiet and welcoming. We picked wild blueberries, and sat on the porch and gazed down at the ocean (pretty far away, but lovely). Very light and bright, comfy chairs and couches and great beds.

    Michael2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is honestly PARADISE! The house itself is charming... warm and comforting, easily big enough for two people. But it's outside that really shines. The house is right on a stunning lake, with a wooden dock and patio straight out of a fairy tale. We were there right as the autumn colors peaked, and every day was breathtaking. The house has basic amenities, but there's a corner store just up the road with a good selection of groceries (and very tasty pizza!). Plus you're right in the heart of Cape Breton, easy drive to so many stunning sights. We're already talking about staying here again in the future!!!

    Michelle2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was so warm and inviting! It was just what we needed! We loved the outdoor space and that is where we spent the majority of our time. Alix thought of everything — we had planned to do some local sight-seeing and exploring, but were reluctant to leave the beautiful views of the Mira River!

    Leona2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • This paradise is just that!! The house was amazing and house and river decks were super comfy. River was peaceful and sunrises should not be missed !! Thank you Alix😃

    Kim2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • This place was even more amazing than what you see in the pictures. We enjoyed every minute of our vacation, going for a kayak ride in the morning, coming back for lunch on that incredible deck and going for a hike in the afternoon/evening. Our dog who loves water also said it's her favourite place in the world ;)

The cottage is kept immaculately clean and is stocked with anything you may need (and more) during your stay and is tastefully decorated with modern decor and quality furnishings. The location is perfect; private, peaceful, easy to find and close to lots of amenities, beaches and parks with a beautiful view of Mira Bay.

We can't thank you enough for opening your home to us and for providing everything needed to make our stay so wonderful. We are excited to return in the future :)

    Rebecca2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • If you want a modern cottage in a private quiet setting with a view of the ocean, this is the place for you. Close to the Fortress of Louisbourg and Sydney. We had fun beach combing and found alot of beach glass. Brian was a great guy and very helpful. He made sure we had fresh drinking water, heat, directions, etc. Loved the welcome bottle of wine. Thanks for everything Brian!

    Sam2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Brian was a fantastic host and was attentive to all of our questions. The cottage is close to Louisbourg Fortress which is a must see as well as the Glace Bay Mining museum. We didn't get a chance to check the beaches near Mira Gut but they looked beautiful. The cottage has everything you would ever need and is modern and clean. We had a wonderful stay and hope to come back.

  • If you're going to the Louisbourg area, this is a wonderful place to stay. Everything was super clean and comfortable, check in was a breeze, the location is great (it's about as close as you can get to the Fortress), and the overall experience was just wonderful. I was there with a small film crew shooting at the Fortress, and we would happily stay again!

  • We arrived at Wanda and Ron's charming seaside cottage a bit early, at the start of our first Atlantic storm, and were warmly welcomed. Our group of four pretty much melted into this beautifully appointed space, full of thoughtful details. If you forgot to pack something, no worries, Wanda had thought of it. We had great sleeps in comfortable beds. The morning after the storm, we enjoyed our coffee in the adjoining sun porch, warmed by the sun, even so late in October. Loved the choices of seating areas there, and generous table space. A lovely conclusion to our slightly hectic but satisfying tour of Cape Breton and the Celtic Colours Festival. The sort of place you want to come back to, perhaps to write your novel, or pursue other creative activities. Thank you Wanda and Ron.

    Helga2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Wanda and Ron’s place is fantastic! First, they are very good hosts with plenty of tips and helpful information. The place itself is spotless! The beds and bedding are very comfortable. We loved falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves. Our host’s sense of style was like a HGTV experience. The beach across the street was fun to explore, especially at low tide. A fantastic place to relax! And in a fun, picture perfect setting.

    James2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! Oceanside view, bocce ball court, tons to do nearby. Best sunroom. We only wish we could have stayed longer! Make sure to check out Governor's pub in Sydney and Louisburg

    Jaxson2019-08-23T00:00:00Z

  • We loved stopping at Wanda and Ron's. It felt like we were visiting old friends. The apartment has loads of interesting bits and pieces to look at and we felt really comfortable and happy. There was lots of thoughtful touches. The sea is nice and close and calm enough for anyone. Communication with Wanda was really quick and easy.

    Phil2019-08-07T00:00:00Z

    Anne2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • I have been going to "The Gut" for forty years to spend time at the family bungalow. This year, as our family grows, it was time to branch out and get our own place. Mira Bay View exceeded our expectations and made our time in the Gut so much more enjoyable! From the comfortable beds, relaxing sun room and soothing claw foot tub, our time on the Mira was fabulous. Mira Bay View had all the necessary amenities needed for a short stay or as long as the 10 days we spent there. If you ever plan on visiting the Mira or it's surrounding area, I would highly recommend Mira Bay View to any traveler, or local resident looking for a quiet get-away. Many thanks to Wanda and Ron for the hospitality and the stories. We will be back!

    Bruce2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wanda and Ron met me and showed me around, there is a keypad entry that is very convenient. Their place is wonderful and the decorating does not go unnoticed, very clean and a beautiful view of the ocean from either the deck or the sunroom. The beds were comfortable and the place has a very homey feel to it. A perfect spot to relax!

We gathered for a family member's 80th birthday and we easily cooked up a banquet using the kitchen and BBQ. We treasured the beautiful evening sunsets and then had the grandkids at a cozy campfire. The host and her husband are classy with down home charm and friendliness. It was a great and memorable experience.

    Bill2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for a family. It was awesome not having to bring our own baby bassinet. It’s rustic, and cozy. the view is amazing just wish the weather was better for our trip.

    Lorrie2019-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely house right by the lake, perfect for a (long) weekend stay with a bigger group or family. It's a bit far out if you want to go to Cape Breton National Park, but still close enough to make a daytrip there and you can also visit other lovely places on Cape Breton. We had a really great stay there and enjoyed the barbeque which they have as well!

    Jiske2018-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jeannette was an outstanding host. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and even got to meet her family over a Saturday night fire. The cottage has an amazing view of the river and we were able to enjoy multiple sunsets.

  • Nice country house with a beautiful water front property on the Grand Mira South in CB. Has everything you need and very chill vibe. Would stay again. Thanks!

    Stanislav2018-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great pkace to relax and unwind. Kitchen is well stocked and there are great games for the kids. River is fantastic. Decor is older but I liked that because travelling with kids and a dog there was no need to worry about anything. A bit of nature will make its way into the house, but that comes with the amazing locale.

    We look forward to welcoming guests into our Cape Breton home to enjoy the magnificent vistas and peaceful surroundings.
    We have 1 bedroom to offer. It has 1 queen bed with one shared washroom. Breakfast is provided and the shared spaces include the deck, the formal living room, the dining room, and the “Snug” (den). There is one cat on site but unfortunately, we cannot take other pets.
    We are located just outside of Sydney but we are within walking distance of the Coxheath Mountain Wilderness hiking trail and a convenience store plus a pharmacy as well as a coffee shop.
  • Wonderful place to stay, I keep comming back!

  • Mary & Ron are amazing hosts. We were warmly welcomed into their home. The amenities were great with a very comfortable and warm bed, spacious bathroom, and sitting area/ dining room to use at any time. They gave us local information and tips on places to visit, which added to our trip to Sydney! Their breakfast was delicious, and they were flexible on eating time as we like to sleep in. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone travelling to the area!

The home is very cosy in the winter, so I am sure it will be fantastic in the summer. You can expect a very comfortable bed, a delicious breakfast and you will have great conversations. I will definitely book back in the next time I’m in the Sydney area.

  • I came to the Sydney area for Celtic Colours and my wife found Blue Jay Haven for us. Unfortunately my wife had to cancel, but all went well and adjusting to just me, a non-Air B and B member was fine. The place was clean, quiet and in a nice residential neighborhood. I went on bike rides around the neighborhood and baked bread. Margo and Rod went away for much of my stay, but all was in very good order. They were very friendly and nice to chat with. I highly recommend Blue Jay Haven. Jim

    Update:Best evidence suggests the Covid-19 will not survive on surfaces for more than three days. To ensure safety for our guests and our cleaner we will be blocking out 3 days on either end of all new bookings. This will limit our new bookings but will help fight the spread of Covid-19 and protect our guests, ourselves and our cleaner. If we receive summer cancellations will will apply this 3 day blocking for cleaning to existing booking when possible.
    The cottage has three bedrooms, a new bathroom with a full tub and shower, the remainder of the cottage is an open concept kitchen and living room area. Enjoy sitting by the fire pit outside or by the propane fireplace inside the cottage. Finally there is a wonderful screened in room to enjoy anytime of day.

  • This was my first time using an airbnb and it was a fantastic experience. Communication with the host was easy and his directions were better than Google's. The cottage and location were beautiful and perfect for our girls weekend. The cottage decor is lovely and had many thoughtful touches. Everything you could need is on site. This spot is a little peace of heaven and I would both definitely recommend the cottage and would think about booking it again.

    Beautiful private suite in a home on the river with amazing views and sunsets- all the things that summer vacation should be. Bon fires, swimming, and soaking up the sun at the river's edge. On the Mira River, a short 15 minute drive to the Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Park or into the city of Sydney, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. In a place so beautiful there is a song about it. Out on the Mira is where you want to be.
    One bedroom, bathroom, living area, another small den with a single bed and a pull out single bed in the sofa. Mini fridge, coffee maker, microwave and toaster.
    Nan's Nook is located on a large property, and you will share the waterfront with the host family. There is a 20" dock for belly flops and swan dives, and a communal fire pit for s'mores and evening bonfires.
  • Thanks for a great stay!

They have a wonderful and sweet dog called Shelby! Lori could provide some good tips about Louisbourg and fortress which was great since was our main purpose being there.

We traveled to the area to visit Fort Louisburg and was very handy. We also had a nice visit to the local beach. Inside, it was cozy, decorated lovely and very comfortable - we felt at home. Beds were very cozy and everything was very clean. Susanne had very nice touches having some things in the fridge and cupboard available for cooking. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend her house for a stay!

We enjoyed coffee on the large deck overlooking the river, while listening to the winds whispering through the trees. There is a very nice restaurant nearby, as well as a Wildlife Park, under 5 km away. There were outdoor amenities that we didn't have time to use, but perhaps next time!

  • The house was spotless and huge. Photos don't do it justice either inside or out. The views were stunning and the peace and quiet was amazing.

    Charles2018-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Angela's property was beautiful. The house is unique and very well designed, there are more than enough washrooms and showers to deal with a lot of guests. The space was very well equipped from an espresso machine to board games to a fireplace. The location is close to a gas station and Walmart so that was convenient.

    Amir2018-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Angela's home is truly a very lovely home away from home with all the comforts of a house. If you are looking for a quiet retreat on beautiful Cape Breton, you have found the most peaceful and beautiful home. The house is fully equipped and very beautiful and tastefully decorated. Each bedroom had it's own bathroom. The kitchen has all the modern amenities. The house sits in a pretty and wild landscape on a lake and has a gorgeous view of the lake. We enjoyed the lake and 2 kayaks on site. You can enjoy the birds chirping in the morning on the back patio that wraps around all the back of the house. Thank you for letting us be your guests.

  • This is a beautiful, spacious home in a stunning and peaceful setting. We loved kayaking and swimming in the lake that we had all to ourselves. The house is lovely - tall ceilings, large bedrooms, with bathrooms in each bedroom, nice kitchen. While it's remote, it's very easy to get to fun activities. We loved our stay there and would book it again. Angela was quick to respond to all of our questions. Thank you Angela for a wonderful family stay!

    Dean2017-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • Host was very friendly and helpful! Beautiful location, but secluded. Be sure you stock up on food supplies. Kitchen was great to cook in. Well water was an acquired taste. May want to bring bottled water for drinking. Great activities provided included kayaks, beach chairs, hiking trails.

    Stephen2016-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Angela and Klaus met us at the cottage and showed us everything we needed to know about for the stay to run smoothly. They were incredibly friendly and thoughtful in making sure everything was there for both adults and kids. The cottage is something out of a dream-home magazine - amazing! The view are incredible from every angle, the cottage modern, roomy, bright and private. The water is easily accessible, great for kayaking and quick swims. Thank you for the chance to share your incredible home away from home!

    David2016-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! What an amazing experience! Angela and Her husband greeted us and showed us around their beautiful home, left us some delicious cake and were on their way. We spent three days watching a variety of birds, kayaking and swimming in the lake. We enjoyed our family dinners at the table, along with playing cards and listening to the dnc ( we are Americans trying to decipher the state of our country, enjoying a much needed respite. The beds were very comfortable. Our only complaint was the fog and clouds that covered the stars at night. Thank you so much!! Communication was quick and responsive. A definite vacation place!!

  • Great place , full of extras like snacks and bath robes. Would definitely stay again.

    Michel2019-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Delores and her son were very welcoming and friendly. The home is spotless, bedroom very clean and comfortable, bathroom also very clean, with fluffy towels. Extra touches were provided (robes, dessert, beverages, etc.). I would definitely recommend this BNB

    Peggy2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I needed a place to sleep after photographing an evening event in Glace Bay - and Delores was kind enough to let us check in after 1030pm - she was up on the porch awaiting our arrival. We were on the road for Halifax early the next morning so we didn't have a long stay, but the bed was comfy, the property very clean, the communication was good - all you want from a B&B. Recommended.

    This bungalow has been in my family since 1963. When a Cape Bretoner says 'bungalow' we are referring to what the rest of the world knows as a cottage. If you are looking for a simple place on the water where you can relax, this is the place for you.
    You have access to the whole property. Even though the bungalow is only 550 sq. ft there are plenty of places to sit and still have room to move around. There is a washer and dryer for your use and an air conditioner for our occasional hot days and nights. The back deck has a Bar-B-Q and a table for outdoor meals, the best part is beautiful view of the lake. There is a fire pit area near the water with kindling and firewood ready to burn and lots of camp chairs and benches. The lake is fresh water and is good for swimming. The beach has smooth pebbles but there are muscle shells in the water that can be sharp, it would be wise to pack water shoes especially for the young ones. If it rains there are DVD movies to watch, books to read, games to play, and even some arts and craft supplies. A great place to get away as a family or to stay while enjoying all Cape Breton Island has to offer. FYI, if you are over 6'-2" you might find the 7'-1" ceilings a bit low, especially in the shower where the headroom is only 6'-4". The space between the bunk bed and the wall to access the bottom bunk is as narrow as it looks in the picture, because of that the ladder to access the top bunk is at the end.
    Capers are a proud bunch and very friendly. You will be called 'dear' a lot or 'hun' or even 'darling' by the locals. They are not trying to be fresh that is just how we say 'buddy or bud'. There is a small drug / convenience store about 4 kms (2.5 m) away if you need something quick. There is a drive-thru Tim Horton's coffee shop only .5 kms further that is next to another convenience store. Within 12 kms (7.5 m) there are 2 full size grocery stores, a Walmart, Liquor Store, 4 pizza restaurants, 2 family restaurants, several fast food places, 3 more Tim Horton's and another drug store. So nothing is far away even though you will feel like you are in the country.
  • Had a great stay at Susan’s little cottage at the lake. I hope to book again in the summer!

    Minette And Andrew2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Susan was a great host and the property location was perfect for us. Clean, easy to find, scenic and tremendous value!

    Harry2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • Susan is a very thoughtful & caring host. Her bungalow is perfect with outstanding amenities, great location, super clean, and homey touches. Highly recommend!!

    Rod2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Susan's cottage was in a perfect location right on the water with a beautiful view and lots of visiting ducks. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need for cooking. She was kind enough to leave cream, milk, butter, eggs and alot of condiments in the fridge and lots of packaged food in the cupboards. This cottage was very clean and perfect for our visit.

    Amanda2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Susan's cottage has everything you will need or want. The place was spotless. I will definitely recommend this cottage to anyone who needs to get away and relax.

    Sue2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • They thought of everything! Amazing water access.

    Kalene2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Very well-stocked cottage on a beautiful lake minutes from Sydney. We especially enjoyed the fire pit out back and had a nice meal at the Governor’s Restaurant downtown. Did the Cabot Trail drive; Englishtown ferry is a big time-saver. House is cozy and Susan’s attention to detail is a big plus.

    Maria2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • The bungalow was perfect. It felt like we were part of the family while we visited. I loved that it was a country feel but that anything we needed was just a 10min drive into sydney. The local attractions were also less than an hour away.
