Beautiful Spot Beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

House is new & can accommodate a group or large family gathering. Property is well maintained.

Location is very rural. Only negative is the road to get to the house. It is dirt and rocks (about 1km). Enjoyed our stay. It is a 4.5 star

Exceptional Home!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place this is! The house is amazing, bright, and cozy - lots of bedrooms and beds to choose from! The deck is lovely, and one could very easily get used to having their own private beach! We had the kayaks out, and the weather was great. We had someone guide us in, which was a good idea - I think we would have gotten lost on the Island without help! But as remote as it is, it is definitely worth the drive. When the tide is out you can beachcomb the area by the house, as well as the beach before the causeway. Robin was awesome to deal with, and Lisa and Ronnie were really helpful too! Tip: If you store your drinks in the wine fridge, remember to grab them when you leave - It looks like we weren't the only ones who forgot! :-)

Beside the Sea

  • 5 of 5

This home away was a wonderful respite as we were traversing Nova Scotia and PEI. While about 15 miles from Antigonish, it provided a wonderful location from which to see that area and begin our journey on the Cabot Trail. This home away is fairly new, open concept and lots of light everywhere. The views from the deck are spectacular, as they are from several other rooms in the home. We were three couples sightseeing together, and the home provided enough space for us to relax and enjoy some homemade meals in the large dining area while on our journey.

My only comment to Robin would be to let folks know they need to purchase their food supplies prior to checking into the home away, as it is a distance from the major shopping areas.

Were we to visit the area again, we would definitely stay at Tracadie Island.

Beautiful house, amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most lovely weekend at this house. There was so much room for everyone (bedrooms very spacious) and the living rom /dinning room/ kitchen area was great for our family to all hang out together. The house is new, modern, well equipped, clean and beautiful. The deck is lovely to enjoy coffee ok in the morning or a cold beverage on in the afternoon. The views are absolutely stunning!! I would recommend staying here to anyone!
