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.

very remote and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

I loved the solitude of the area and the close proximity to the Cabot Trail lots of interesting things to do and see in the area. Would recommend to anyone who is looking to get away from it all.

The perfect cottage in an idyllic setting!

  • 5 of 5

I loved every minute spent in Cory's Log Cabin. The cabin itself is perfect from the covered deck to the clothes line to the tasteful interior. Nothing so wonderful as to sit on the deck and hear the ocean lapping on the shore, the wind in the spruce trees, and the birds chirping on the lawn. Wonderful for long morning walks along the beach and star-gazing at night. The cabin is clean, tasteful and efficient, and the sound of the screen doors closing spells out summer! Loved every minute of the two weeks I spent there and it was sad to pull out of the driveway on my departure. Thanks for a wonderful stay in a stunning corner of Cape Breton!

A newer, very clean cabin, scenic & very quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from Michigan & spent a week in Sept 2016: the listing was very accurate and the log cabin was just as nice as described. It seemed huge compared to the usual B & B or hotel room and the cost was more than reasonable; we saved some money by eating breakfast there and cooked a few dinners but there is also a good restaurant / bakery fairly close by with the usual polite & friendly Nova Scotian service.

You have to drive about 6 miles up a dirt road to get to the cabin but the ride is scenic; need to drive slowly around the curves but there is very little traffic ( the road dead-ends ) and the other drivers are extremely polite,

as they are throughout Nova Scotia & Prince Edward Island.

The owner's father lives just across the road, is very personable and friendly and came over right away to answer our questions; he built this

modern cabin and it is very well-constructed and tight. It's a very safe, quiet and peaceful location.

There is a beach across the road - not a " white sand " beach as we have in Michigan or Florida but we did not

expect it.

Well this may sound like an advertisement or that I'm related to the owner but no, I was just pleasantly

surprised to see that the cabin was as good or better than described and thought I should post a review.

( Actually I should not have been surprised because the residents of Nova Scotia

are still as honest, polite and genuinely friendly as they were on our first trip 13 years ago).

Great place in a beautiful setting ! Will go back!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was a great experience in Cape Dauphin. The house had all the amenities that we were looking for in a beautiful and quiet environment. Cory provided us with a list of local places and directions that were really helpful to kick off our stay. Overall, a great vacation and a place to go back to!

Amazing little place! Perfect for couples or family's with 1 child.

  • 5 of 5

It was my wife, my child and my self. Beautiful newer log cabin. 25 min to the closest grocery store. Tiny refrigerator but worked for what we needed it for. Gas grill out side for food. Bath room was nice, towels and face cloths were soft. No washer or dryer but nice close line out side. No internet or cell service if you have sprint. Small TV but good dish network on the rainy days or late night tv cravings (also has dvd player). Over all, if you want to get away from reality, this is the place to do it! I will prob go back again and use the same place! Short walk to the rocky ocean beach. Beautiful nights. I really can't say enough good things about this cabin. Owners live across the way and totally make sure you have everything you need. Very nice and polite. (if you are tall 6ft +, shower is just a bit uncomfortable but do able.)
