What our guests say
I wanted to make sure that you knew that my girls and I had the best timeat the Cottages! The cottages are roomy and clean and the property is beautiful.It is wonderful for early morning and evening walks. Our only regret is that we didn't have a chance to use the canoes on the river- next time. Additionally, the restaurant food was great and the dessert was yummy.The cottages are perfectly located central to everything that we did on your side of beautiful Cape Breton Island.
Thanks so much for your hospitality
I just wanted to write and thank you and Tom for such a nice evening on Valentine’s Day. I did not get a chance to see you and just spoke to Tom for a brief moment. You were both very busy. The meal was delicious my favourite part – the mashed potatoes, don’t know what you do it to get them so creamy and tasty plus the dessert was great. Rev. Willis and his wife really enjoyed themselves. They would not have gone anywhere if we had not taken them. Wayne told Tom that there is no where he can go to enjoy a lovely meal and get to talk and relax and not worry about rushing. This is good for me because maybe he will take me out more often! The weather was perfect such a lovely winter night. The H. family live off Trout Brook and we were so surprised to see the snow on the trees, so the drive was next to perfect. I love winter and have no problem with the snow and I do not have to shovel. We met Bob and his wife Sandi, had not seen them for a while so enjoyed a visit with them and saw some other familiar faces.
I also feel special that we had a table in my favourite place. Now looking forward to our next time.
Take Care and Thank You Patricia

Last Weekend my Husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal and surroundings at the Riverbank Restaurant. We both think it is a blessing when a person like you settles in Cape Breton. You are a example of friendly and hospitable greetings.
It was a pleasure. Thank you for a great dinning experience.

Arrived atthe cottages in August. The area is beautiful. We were really pleasedwith the cottages.
Just sorry it was too warm to light a fire inthe wood stove.
Everything was bright and cherry and we felt verywelcomed. Went canoeing a couple times on the Mira. Definitely willcome back.
One last note,the food is incredible.
