Peace and quiet.
I enjoyed the history of the old school house, the staircase was not an easy task being of a certain age, the view was lovely and the drive to get to the house was amazing.
The school how is fantastic it’s central to pretty much everything with much privacy the owners are excellent we will be back thank you for everything
The area was beautiful and easy access to Baddeck,Ingonish and Sydney. The cabin had a rustic charm but lacked basic upkeep such as a broken screen door, non functioning toaster,old pillows, uncomfortable mattress and it could have been a lot cleaner.
I must say Im confused, I was up to speak with you on two occasions and asked both times if you were comfortable and the answer was everything was good, now you wait till after you leave and leave a bad review. I will look at the toaster and screen to have them repaired, and will address the cleaning with the cleaner.
Thank you for your input but would have liked to address these items with you personally, safe travels.
PS I checked the toaster and it was working fine ( maybe you had the setting down low?) Also the screen door was off the track ok now.
Good place to decompress
We thoroughly enjoyed our few days at the Old Schoolhouse. The cottage is wonderful and I love the way it was renovated. Having attended a one room schoolhouse as a kid I appreciated its history. Richard was very accommodating when we had to change things around at the last minute. We arrived after dark and even with very explicit directions we had a little trouble finding it. It was much easier in the daylight.
The schoolhouse was amazing! Beautiful home in a beautiful setting
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The cottage was amply stocked with supplies for everyday living. The homeowner was very considerate of our privacy while maintaining the house with everything we need (water cooler was empty upon arrival but we quickly found a full water bottle outside the front door). The beach is nice and private and an easy stroll from the cottage. Our dogs loved the freedom of the property and the beach. In terms of location, the cottage was a beautiful drive down a winding dirt road but still close enough to the highway to access anything we wanted to do. I highly recommend staying here to anyone and thank the owner very much for our stay!
So happy you enjoyed your stay come back anytime
Rustic but quiet and comfortable.
Kitchen cookware was adequate but the dishwasher was awful - a white coat covered every dish surface. House was cool enough in the heat but would have liked to use the wood stove on the cool nights but there was a note telling us not to use the stove. Had a squirrel issue but Richard came right away and took care of the problem
We are located on the New Campbellton Road in the community of Cape Dauphin (population 15 full time residents).
Take a 5 minute walk and you are n a private sandy beach, you can walk for miles and not see anybody. From Cape Dauphin you can do all your day trips around the island. Down the road there is Kelly's wharf where you can fish mackerel, buy fresh lobster, join in with the cottagers for a bonfire. Close by there is Bird Island boat tours, boat charters and whale watching, world-class golf course (Bell Bay), Highlands National Park, hiking trails, Alexander Graham Bell Museum and historic fortress of Louisbourg. It is 50 minutes from Sydney, 30 minutes to shopping area in North Sydney, 25 minutes to the tourist town of Baddeck.
