Trip Advisor says, 5 star rating, "You can't go wrong in staying here - this is likely the best house rental in Cape Breton. Niki and Jeremy had everything ready to go for us, the place was even nicer than advertised, and it was the perfect spot for your family or group of friends. Lots of sleeping space and a charming old house nestled in the hills of Pleasant Bay. This place is a true gem and we'll be staying there again, for sure."

Pleasant Bay is a great place to base yourself if you want to explore the most popular part of the Cabot Trail - between Cheticamp and Ingonish (see map) - and be central to the National Park. Pleasant Bay is bordered by National Park at both entry points. It is arguably the best place to watch whales, and has four very different whales tours operating at the Pleasant Bay Harbour. Touring by boat is also a great way to explore the National Park and many miles of our uninhabited and wilderness protected areas. You may also tour the very unique Gampo Abbey Buddhist Monastery and Stupa of Enlightenment, which was built for westerners and has been host to thousands of students from all over the world and many life monastics.+ More
