a great cottage
The cottage is great--VERY clean and comfortable for 2 people. The gravel road was not an issue at all--it was better than many of the gravel roads we travelled on in Cape Breton. The owner is very responsive. We had a bit of an issue getting the DVD player to work one evening, but the owner's father was over to fix it within 10 minutes of contacting the owner. His father lives nearby and is very friendly. It's a bit of a walk to get to the beach, but we enjoyed one day walking to Cape Dauphin and exploring the beach. Baddock, on the Cabot Trail, is a very cute little town about 20 minutes from the cottage. It's the closest place for groceries, gas, restaurants, coffee, etc. The cottage is well situated to get to Sydney and places on the Cabot Trail. Yet, it is far enough away from everything to be quiet and private. Overall, we too second Austin B's recommendation as a great place to get away from it all.
