About Will Harvey

Born and raised in the Village of Baddeck, I've been able to experience first hand the beauty that it has to offer. After graduating high-school and moving away a person realizes how special their hometown truly is, and this is no different for me, Cape Breton truly is my favourite place to be in the spring, summer, and fall.

Will Harvey purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Will Harvey chose Baddeck

My hope was to own a piece of Cape Breton that I could truly call my own. This property allowed me to do that. With significant work and investment I am very pleased with the final result. The home has come a long way and is ready to be enjoyed.

Charming Little House in Baddeck

  • 4 of 5

The layout of the house is very efficient and the kitchen well stocked with essential cooking tools. Will Harvey, the owner, was very helpful and accommodating. Equally important is that Baddeck is a great little village and well located for access to Cape Breton. A couple of things to note: there is only one local grocery store so make sure you know their hours as the next closest one is many kilometers away. If you are highly sensitive to pet dander or odors, then this place may not be for you. It is a pet friendly home, which is wonderful for those traveling with their furry friends. Bottom line: we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this vacation rental!

Great Place to Stay in Baddeck

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week in Sept 2016. The house was very cozy and walking distance to downtown. Baddeck is a good location to stay while touring Cape Breton.

Delightful cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

I spent the month of August at this cottage. The cottage is well cared for and very well equipped. Kitchen was similar to my kitchen at home with modern appliances, Bed was very comfortable. Everything worked well even the Wi-Fi and the flat screen cable TV. Neighbors were nice and they were quiet. The village of Baddeck is clean and comfortable for walking but it is also hilly. The village is centrally located in Cape Breton. Most attractions are within an 1 1/2 hour drive. The cottage is 3 blocks from the main street but sidewalks are not always present. I would recommend the Yellow Cello as a great stop for lunch or dinner. The have a nice sun deck and do try their Lobster roll (yummy) Baddeck is also home for the Alexander Graham Bell museum which was very interesting.

All in all, I would do this again in a heartbeat.
