Hello, Mark & Gina,
I would like to know availability & pricing of a cottage rental for two adults (separate beds) in the 2nd or 3rd week of September. I am flexible as to exact dates.
What date are you looking at visiting?

Just spent six awesome nights at cottage three. All you really need to bring is some clothes and a toothbrush! Everything was way beyond expectations,Perfect. Mark and Gina are very hospitable, which is a genuine `down home` trait.The first day there, we asked Mark to book us ten days ,the first two weeks of June 2018.We are sure this is going to be an annual event for us. P.S .Hey Sam, I`m bringing my acoustic down next year.I`ll show you Barre Chords.
thank you for your kind words. We are hoping it will be a tradition.
Your cottages were recommended to us by Dr. Stevenson in Florida.

Hey Mark and Gina,
We stayed for 4 nights while I was in the area for work. Beautiful views and the cabins had everything we needed for our stay. Enjoyed our daily visits from the other dogs who seemed to enjoy visiting with our Molly. Was a good location for working in Sydney and I will hopefully be back again.
Thanks Mark & Gina for a wonderful stay at your cottage the week of August 21-28. We have enjoyed numerous vacations at View of the Sea cottages, and it’s always hard to leave. We love this location and stunning view. My only concern is – since I’ve referred your cottages to friends, the word is out…and perhaps won’t be available when we want to rent again!
It is also to see you both. Thanks and hope to see you next year.
Mark and Gina
Central location on the island and Nice place to stay.
Thank you so much for everything . Very friendly and helpfull owner, we appreciated Mark’s advice to visit the mines in Glace bay.
To many things to visit and to do… We will need to come back!
This is a great place for a family vacation or for a couple.
Danièle and Gilles
Thanks Mark and Gina for your kindness and hospitality. We would also like to thank
Gina’s dad and Mark for taking the time out of their busy schedule to reminisce
about stories of the beautiful Lake and Kelly’s Mountain. We miss “Riley” and the
view already. We were so happy to find somewhere that could accommodate all of us so
that we could visi
Hi Mark and Gina,
Norm and I so thoroughly enjoyed our week with you (July 31-Aug 6), in cottage #2. You really thought of everything to make us feel at home. From the nice bottle of water in the fridge on arrival, to that coffee for the first pot before we got groceries, that kitchen was amazing. The quiet beautiful view kept us out on the deck from dawn til late into the starry nights. You truly are some of the great hearts of Cape Breton. We were so sad to leave, but thrilled to book with you for holidays next year. See you in June. Thoughts of cottage 2 will keep us warm through the snowy winter. Big hugs dear friends.
looking forward to seeing you again next year.
We just spent the last week at View of the Sea cottages. We were most impressed with the cleanliness of the cottage and surrounding area. The owners are detailed oriented, there was a lovely little welcome basket in the bathroom and a case of water in the fridge. There was plenty of towels and linen for our week stay. There was plenty of wood and cardboard for a nightly fire. The scenery was breathtakingly beautiful. You can see the water from your cabin and the evening breeze was so refreshing. There is even a small but cute play area for children. Satellite TV was appreciated on rainy days…..a wonderful place that we highly recommend.
As we near the end of another wonderful stay in cottage 3, we are already feeling sad to be leaving this beautiful spot. Our first stay here was in 1999 when the cottages were operated by Gina’s father and mother, Gerald (“Sam”) and Mary, and we’ve been back every year since – 18 visits and counting. How lucky are we! We never tire of the view of Cape Breton’s inland ocean – the Bras d’Or Lakes, Mark and Gina’s warm hospitality, or the immaculate well-equipped cottage and meticulously-kept grounds. We highly recommend View of the Sea Cottages and look forward to next year’s visit.
Karen & Courtney

Hello Mark & Gina,
My brothers, sister and I thoroughly enjoyed the week we spent staying at your cottages. The view was spectacular! We were all impressed with how nice the cottages were and how apparent it was that they were well taken care of. We thoroughly also thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside soaking in the view from the very well groomed and maintained grounds and friendly atmosphere. It was a sheer pleasure watching Riley! Tell her I said hello back and look forward to seeing her again sometime in the future. I will definitely think of your cottages when I visit again and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a vacation spot there.
p.s. Did you sell that 2.25 acres or is it stll for sale?
thanks and we hope to see you again soon.
Mark and Gina
Every year we look forward to our stay at View of the Sea cottages. These cottages are perfect. All amenities in them, extremely clean and beyond comfortable. Central to all of Cape Breton’s hot spots (if you dare leave the beauty of the this location!!!!) Mark and Gina are beyond accommodating and all around amazing people. When we come down the lane we feel like we are back “home”. We cannot stress enough to make these cottages your main stay when in Nova Scotia/Cape Breton! Beautiful cottages. Beautiful views. Beautiful people.
And we enjoy seeing you and all of our regular guests. See you next year. Take care of each other.

Enjoyed my trip to Cape Breton (Cabot trail) June 2012 & well return again . Brampton, ON
My husband, mother, and I stayed at the cottages last year. What a lovely place. Mark and Gina are wonderful in addition to all the neighbors! It felt like home. We will be back!
Love to stay with you sometime!
What a great spot for a family vacation!
We have people from all over the world spend their family vacation with us. It is great to meet them and show them the way of life we have here in Cape Breton. Also, almost every year we receive bookings for all 3 cottages for family reunions. Having all of the grounds to themselves and having all of the family together again, they have a great time.
We hope that someday you will have a chance to visit.
thanks for your comment and please look at our live webcam to see what is happening at the cottages,
Mark and Gina
Looks like a beautiful spot!
