25+ Years & Counting

We have been staying in cottage 3 at View of the Sea Cottages for 25+ years and have booked again for 2024. We have found View of the Sea very central to all of the attractions Cape Breton has to offer. Its setting with a spectacular view of Kelly’s Mountain and the Bras d’Or Lake is priceless. Mark & Gina are perfect hosts with every detail covered. The cottage is exceptionally clean and very well-equipped. The deluxe and well-maintained BBQ on the deck is a bonus. We highly recommend these facilities!

Lovely spacious cottage and exceptionally clean. Added bonus was the sunroom where we enjoyed the sunrise shinning on Kelly’s Mountain in the morning and watching the sunset in the evening on the lake. The view is spectacular and is always changing. Excellent location on the Bras d’or lakes.


As always, it was a great stay

Mark and Gina are always welcoming ,and are ready willing and able to make our stay truly enjoyable. We have been staying at View of The Sea cottages for the last 15 years. It is a great location for visitors to see the island, and the cottages are impeccably kept. We feel like we are in a home away from home. Thank you again for a wonderful stay.

I’ve stayed at View of the Sea Cottages for two spring vacations now and just love it. I’d live there if they’d let me. The tranquil atmosphere and beautiful view of the lake are a bonus to the comfort, cleanliness, and central location of the cottages. I’ll be back as often as possible.

We stayed at the smaller cottage, Mark And gina wonderful host, and they assured that every small detail was forwarded to us and we enjoyed the views. We enjoy the peace of mind just the whole contentment of being in like a home environment and being close to everything that we needed access to. If I was to say anything, I would say I would definitely stay here again and again when I go back home and always tell anybody out there is best experience. It’s so rewarding and fulfilling and Mark very helpful even very small details. If we needed to find like for instance we wanted to go on the tour of the bird island. They were able to give us all the information and also all the local events within the area, even though I am from Cape Breton Island .. So I would definitely stay there again.
