About us

Stewart Applegath and Bell Fraser have been exceeding guests' expectations since 2008; we live in Cape Breton and know the Island, and the things which make it magical. Our cottages are booked by the week only, but as many of our guests discover, this may only scratch the surface of what you will find here...

The biggest hurdle you may face could be choosing the right cottage. On any day, you may see whales and eagles pass by, and other visitors as well; foxes, coyotes, deer and moose all make appearances from time to time. Each cottage has its own spectacular views and charm; others agree–one of the cottages was featured in Canadian House & Home and Victoria magazines; another is listed by DWELL as one of "Eight Outstanding Cottages for Rent in Canada." TumbleSea was featured by VrBo for "Stunning views from 12 cliffside homes"

These Cape-Breton-style, cedar-shingled cottages all have fully equipped kitchens, spacious decks, and well-considered interiors; three change over on Saturdays, two on Fridays; four out of five welcome children. Check the calendars attached to each cottage page to see which is available for your visit to Cape Breton.
