This has the most beautiful scenery! We loved the lake, waterfall & kayaking. We stayed when the Celtic Colours festival was going on. A great time to be in Beddeck!! Lots of music & the trees was changing at it's peck. This cabin is about 30 mins. from the college so it was close enough to all the action. Aaron & Ruth was very friendly and commentating to us.

We loved our stay at Ruth and Aaron's cottage. It's very conveniently located at a short distance to many scenic beaches and hiking trails, as well as the Cape Breton national park, but honestly the property itself is so huge and beautiful that we barely wanted to leave. The cottage is surrounded by meadows, forest, streams, a beautiful waterfall and a big private lake that we swam in every day. The cottage itself was cozy and simple, and accommodated our group of five comfortably. Ruth and Aaron were great and thoughtful hosts: they were available if we needed anything and they gave us great recommendations on nearby activities. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking to visit Cape Breton, or even just to spend a relaxing week in nature.

A tranquil and beautiful piece of paradise, off the beaten track but central to the Cabot trail and close to Baddeck, which we found to have the most tourist activities for a single town on the trail. Being central to the island gives you good access to the Bras D'Or lakes, Sydney and Louisburg but once you see the property you won't want to leave. Ruth and Aaron are very welcoming, the cottage is basic but with every ammenity you might expect. Close by are the artisan studios of the Cabot trail which you can peruse at your leisure before driving the trail. On the property is a beautiful waterfall that is so stunning you might expect it in a national park. Enjoy the peace of the lake in one of the owners canoes or by taking a swim in stunning surroundings. Just Wow!

The property is easily accessible but it can feel like you're a great many miles away from civilisation. A great place to go and leave the world behind for a little while. There's no internet or even cell coverage at the cottage, even the radio only gets a couple stations, so the disconnection from the outside world is good. When we found we needed a little outside world, the town of Baddeck (which is just as charming as it seems) was only a short drive, and it had all the amenities we needed.

Otherwise the private lake and waterfall are great for a little dose of nature, and incredibly convenient, and longer hikes are very nearby as well. The Highlands National Park is relatively close too (the drive to get there is gorgeous itself, worth making the trip just for that).

The sleeping loft is a lot of fun but would probably only suit kids, and it got pretty hot up there with the wood stove on. The cottage stays pretty cool though, we were there in July and the sun never heated the cottage up too much. The property has a large lawn, but the deerfly were out when we were there so it wasn't the most helpful. The meadow across the road made for some great stargazing though.

All in all, a great place to change your speed and relax. Comfortable, and an excellent base from which to explore Cape Breton.

We cannot think of a better way to spend 7 beautiful fall days in Cape Breton. The charm and sheer majesty of the property along with the older style cottage really allows you to relax and enjoy the simple things of life. We wish I had grown up as a kids on this property, it has everything you need. Beautiful forests, a nice rocky river, a big waterfall with a trail leading to the top, a big green field, a beautiful pond to hammock next to or even kayak and canoe in, and most importantly very gracious, kind and nature conscious hosts. We would highly recommend staying to anyone who enjoys quiet time in nature.

Many Thanks! Our stay will not be forgotten and we may be back for that matter.
