Cape Breton is pretty sparse so we were appreciative of finding a comfortable place to stay. The Cottages are situated beautifully on a Bay and while small are very clean and functional with a kitchenette and queen bedroom. The Dining at Seascapes restaurant exceeded our expectations (gourmet!) and we enjoyed the inclusive breakfasts along with several dinners. The hiking tips... More

The cottage was immaculate, cute and nicely furnished with kitchenette facilities and BBQ grill. The views into Cape Breton water and mountains from each cottage are gorgeous. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

We were there for several days in September, 2016. The cottages are nice, roomy and clean and on the water with a beautiful view. Be sure to have your dinner there as the food is exceptionally delicious with a talented chef on board. The breakfast is tasty also and you have the lovely view over the water. We were lucky...

An excellent place to stay. Clean, well equipped, cosy cabins with view of the sea (bay/water). A wonderful 'tempter' brought to the cabin each evening. Only criticism would be the narrow one hour window for breakfast. Breakfast extremely good and fresh.

The cottages each have a wonderful view of the water. Cottages are clean and have a small frig, 2 burner stove and wonderful gas "wood" burning stove to keep you warm and cozy. The bedrooms are large, and bath is great. Breakfast is a choice of one of 4 items. All were good.

This was our 2nd visit to Seascape Retreat. We loved this place so much we brought along our friends for this visit and we had cottages next to each other. We had a whole week to explore Cape Breton Island and this is the perfect place to make your home base. We saw pods of pilot whales from our porch,... More

What a serene and beautiful place in Cape Breton. The cabins are well appointed, peaceful and have great views of Ingonish Bay. The owners are very welcoming and are great chefs. Take a moment to have a dinner cooked to perfection in the dining room.

Bed was very comfortable. Sitting on our own cottage deck, sipping a glass of wine was a highlight. Took a nice walk along the beech. Close to hiking trails, grocery store, and restaurants. Good breakfast included every day between 8am and 9am.

Seascape really is a hidden gem. Comfortable accommodation, excellent cuisine and warm, friendly service are its hallmarks, and its waterfront location across the bay from Keltic Lodge affords excellent vistas. Seascape is an ideal base from which to explore the Cabot Trail, and we look forward to returning sooner rather than later.

We were running early around the trail so we called to see if we could check in early. We called and they said that they could accommodate us. Check in was a breeze and we were on our way to the cabin within 15 mins after receiving breakfast chits and wifi password. As soon as we opened the door me... More
