great little cottage
This was a perfect small cottage for 2 adults and 2 dogs. Close enough to walk to town although we biked everywhere. We had lovely time with all the Baddeck has to offer. The cottage was very close to the lake for swimming and just sitting. Altho it is small it is well designed and the owners were very helpful and friendly.We stayed for 2 months, part of June,July through mid August.
It was gret
I rented it for my friend and her mother and her daughter. They told me they had a great time. The cottage was cosy and clean. Thank you so much!!
Convenient & Cozy Cottage
The Gatehouse is a nice small cottage along the road into Baddeck, though busy during the day, it quieted down at night so road noise was not an issue.
Convenient walking distance to town, and easy access to any other roadways to explore Cape Breton Island. The cottage was well equipped for a comfortable stay for 2 people. It was nicely decorated, good Wi-Fi , spacious bathroom (with good hot shower!). The kitchen had all the amenities, though limited counter space so cooking would be difficult, our preference was to enjoy the great restaurants & cafes in Baddeck. Note other than coffee, tea, and sugar packets, you will need to provide your own spices & condiments, etc. Dining table is a bistro type set, so if you travel with 2 laptops like we do, they take up the entire table.
The double bed & pull-out were comfortable, the bed taking up most of the bedroom. There is good walking space around the bed (for those midnight trips to the bathroom), suitcases would need to be unpacked and stored away to for a clear path.
Kerianne was a great host, quick to respond to any inquiries and provide suggestions on what to see & do.
All in all it was a nice stay and we enjoyed the location. We are used to a lot of space so found it a little on the tiny side, but you won't go wrong with choosing the Gatehouse.
Keep in mind the rates on VRBO are often quoted in USD, so was pricier than we originally anticipated and we found we didn't get the same value that we have found in other rentals, but a good choice nonetheless.
Enjoyed our time at The Gatehouse
Small house has been renovated and tastefully decorated. Had all the conveniences that we required. Is situated on the road into the small town of Baddeck, however all traffic dies off in early evening, which enables a quiet evening. Only thing missing is a small deck out front, to be able to sit end enjoy the afternoon sunshine, beverage and barbeque.
Cute cozy comfortable convenient cottage
The title says it all,
Very comfortable and cozy
We really enjoyed our stay of ten days. Close to downtown Baddeck, restaurants and shops. Centrally located for travel purposes of getting around Cape Breton. We would definitely book this premises again.
