My wife and I had an outstanding experience staying at A la Cote in Cheticamp, NS for a week. The location is just a short drive north from Cheticamp Village and it is located on a very large private property right on the edge of the Gulf of St. Lawrence with full access to a beautiful beach. This home exceeded our expectations in many ways. The views in all directions are outstanding with incredible sunsets from the private raised deck. This very private location / setting is rare and very special. The large, fully equipped, super clean apartment with very high end furnishings and appliances is memorable and so impressive. We said to each other several times “ This ‘A la Cote’ rental is the BEST and MOST IMPRESSIVE rental in which we have ever stayed.” (and we have stayed in many over the past 15+ years of renting vacation homes )
We hiked on several of the Cape Breton Highlands National park trails which are very diverse and beautiful. The National Park entrance is just a few miles away from the home. We also visited several other sites along the Cabot Trail.
Our host (and owner) John was very helpful when we made the initial reservations. He checked in on us a few times and we loved spending some time with him one evening to learn more about the home and the Cape Breton area / history. John is the most gracious and generous host we have met.
We used the home as a home base to explore the entire Cabot Trail, the magnificent Cape Breton Highlands National Park, Baddeck attractions and the Fortress at Louisbourg.
Do not hesitate to rent this wonderful private sea-side home if you are in the Cape Breton National Park area or Cabot trail area. It was a truly outstanding experience !
