SeaSky Cottage


"To say that this little cottage is charming, welcoming, and perfectly placed in the quiet heart of Margaree, would be an understatement. My brother and I had the privilege of spending a week there, and I can honestly say I have never had a more enjoyable, more perfect vacation experience. The cottage itself, tucked away on a quiet hilltop, exceeded our expectations. It was warm and inviting, giving us a sense of home despite ours being 3,000 miles away. An absolute gem...perhaps one of my favorite places on earth." -CLAIRE S., DALLAS


"The cottage was amazing, beyond our expectations.

Stewart was exceptional with everything especially guiding us to places to see, with maps and directions. It was an epic vacation, even the weather gave us a taste of almost every type, a true representation of Cape Breton." AL D. 2022

"Amazing week on Cape Breton! SeaSky Cottage was the perfect place to stay to explore the area. Stewart gave us wonderful recommendations for hiking, eating and music. My only regret is that we didn’t have enough time to check them all off. The cottage was just as pictured, comfortable and tastefully decorated. We appreciated the CD’s, books and games for the evening hours. The views from the deck and living room were spectacular...we are already planning our next trip." KERRY L. 2022


"Bliss beside a Cape Breton sea. A cozy architectural wonder of charming decoration facing that vast expanse of ocean called the Gulf of St. Lawrence, where bald eagles made eye contact flying past the kitchen in the morning and sunsets worthy of Van Gogh’s brush ended every day. This property and its owners are class personified." RON 2022

"We thoroughly enjoyed our (too short) weeklong stay at SeaSky cottage. It provided exactly what we needed for our vacation. It had all the amenities one would need. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and welcoming, and provided lots of restful peace and quiet. There were beautiful sunsets and sunrises over the ocean with a lovely beach nearby. We watched the fisherman haul in the lobster traps and reset them each morning, and watched a pair of eagles on the cliff near the beach. Stewart was a wonderful host, friendly and very knowledgeable - providing great insight into unique hikes, sightseeing and restaurants. The cottage is located in a great location for getting to many sites on Caper Breton including Cape Breton National Park, Baddeck (lobster supper), and so forth...We were sorry to leave but intend to return in the future. You could not ask for a better property or host." DAVID J. 2022

"The property was spectacular. The sky was endless–perfect for sunsets and stargazing. Stewart was so kind and helpful. He dedicated his time informing us of all there is to do in the area. Due to his guidance and effort we experienced far more than we could have imagined. As a result our vacation was amazing. I would highly recommend this property and I hope to return someday." KAREN S. 2022

We had a spectacular stay here. The cottage is charming, well-appointed and the view captivating. Stewart was most helpful in sharing maps, suggestions and checking in to ensure our holiday was going smoothly. Don’t miss out on this restful, peaceful treasure of a cottage. PHILLIP M. 2021

"We cannot say enough about our stay at SeaSky cottage. The cottage itself is a beautiful space - so very well designed, comfortable and fitting perfectly into its surroundings. And the view is beyond description - absolutely stunning. One of the best we have seen on an island with so many fantastic views. We saw bald eagles daily, seals and a pod of pilot whales – right from the cottage! We were able to see a glimpse of the other cottages and they looked equally nice - it is a beautiful and very well maintained property. Stewart himself was so friendly - meeting us soon after arrival and giving us some really good tips on how to enjoy our stay on Cape Breton Island (We followed most of them-they were great tips!). We highly recommend SeaSky cottages." SHANNON & PETER 2021

There are not enough words to describe how absolutely stunning this property Is. We wanted a little magical getaway and this did not disappoint. Stewart, greeted us upon arrival and made the most perfect suggestions for a day plan that made our stay even more enjoyable. He was so attentive to our every need. I would recommend this property to anyone looking to be pampered by nature! It is GORGEOUS. WE LOVED IT. ❤️❤️❤️ SONYA S.2020

This property provided more than what we were looking for: comfort, tranquility and some of the best sunsets I have ever seen. The peaceful ocean views can be enjoyed from the beautiful deck or from the open-concept interior by the warm wood-burning stove. After visiting part of Cape Breton Island during our short stay, I still believe this cottage is set on one of the most beautiful properties. It is equipped with everything you could need and is immaculate. The owners are welcoming and provided us with great suggestions for local eats and adventures. A stay at SeaSky is sure to be memorable, and I will visit again if life takes me back on a trip to to Cape Breton Island, no matter how long the stay may be!

Very well managed and organized property with fantastic sea-side views. Stewart was very friendly and accommodating and gave us some great suggestions for local visits. Would stay here again.MICHAEL B.2020


What a fantastic spot for a long weekend getaway. Beautiful sunsets and close to a wonderful beach. The cottage was immaculate and very well appointed. NANCY M.2020


The property was absolutely charming. Such a beautiful view to wake up to and watch at sunset. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wants an idea of what Cape Breton is about. CLAY B.2020

SeaSky is more beautiful and peaceful than the pictures can show. Stewart met us soon after we arrived and we talked for an hour about all the wonderful places and venues around our area of Cape Breton. His suggestions and input were very helpful as we traveled around the island. The cottage was so comfortable from the beds in the loft area to everything we needed in the kitchen. And the views of the cove and beach and the sunsets each evening from the deck are spectacular. Such a special place, as eagles fly by on the breeze in the peace and quiet of this incredible property.

"Beautiful, high ceilings, architect designed, totally authentic cottage with loving attention to detail and the most amazing ocean view you have ever seen. You won't want to leave the deck overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the nearby Chimney Corner beach. This place is one-of-a-kind. And Stewart is a fantastic host with lots of great ideas about things to see and do. As you can tell I can't say enough good things about this property!!" SHEREEN M. 2018

"Fantastic find! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed staying at SeaSky Cottage. The house itself was comfortable, clean and cozy. We loved the open shower with bathroom heated floors. We enjoyed viewing the artwork in the house and appreciated the info on each piece that was included in a very thorough visitor welcome guide which was incredibly handy. When we arrived, Stewart, the cottage owner, was genuinely interested in helping us to make the trip an enjoyable one; he shared many awesome tips with us based on what we liked to do. ...The beds were comfy. The windows provided amazing views of the ocean and rocks which two eagles frequented...The gorgeous beach was a quick two-minute drive. We are grateful that we found this rental and would love to return to this gem again. Thank you Stewart and Bell."  LYNN C., 2019

"There are not enough superlatives to describe our heaven on earth week. I have been to many”ideal” shore destinations. Nothing compares to this “world apart” experience of Cape Breton Island. Our time at SeaSky was the stuff of lifetime memories. Stewart and Bell have hit all the marks for the ultimate week to decompress among nature’s rugged splendour. BTW, I am an artist who focusses on light. I can truly say that I was awestruck by what this perfectly sited cottage offered visually. I recommend SeaSky to anyone seeking an exceptional tastefully appointed rustic place of quiet, restorative beauty." JOEL I. 2018

"I'm almost hesitant to rave about this property lest its popularity prevents me spending another week here in the future! The location of the cottage is absolutely stunning and Stewart's hospitality was incomparable. The cottage has everything you could possibly need for a week away from home (lovely linens, extra towels, every cooking item you could need, beach towels, beach chairs, etc.) plus lovely and interesting furnishings. I felt like I was staying at the house of a friend with great taste as opposed to a rental I found online. This is my second time staying in a Stewart and Bell rental and I'm already thinking of visiting again next year. Thanks again!" COURTNEY W. 2018

"My wife and I spent our honeymoon at this beautiful cottage and only regretted not staying for longer. There's too many complimentary sentiments to possibly articulate for the overall experience. The view is stunning, the accommodations impeccable, and the hospitality unparalleled. We considered refusing to leave until common sense peaked its ugly, city-bound head. We will surely return to this wonderful place in the years to come. Can't thank Stewart and Bell enough. Looking forward to the next time." GREGORY C. 2018

"We wanted a vacation that was quiet, calm and peaceful – an escape from the noise of life. Thank you Stewart and Bell for providing a beautifully stunning setting in which to relax and recharge. Having worked for a high-end hotel company for more than 10 years, I have an expectation about the quality of lodging. Most important for me is that my accommodations are clean. These cottages are spotless. Stewart and Bell go out of their way to make sure their guests feel comfortable and Stewart spends time with all his guests when they arrive to make sure they get settled. The cottages ooze charm and have everything you need all nestled on the breathtaking cliffs of Chimney Corner. Cape Breton is unspoiled and stunning, and these cottages are the perfect way to soak it all in."   - KEN E., 2017

"I am convinced that Stewart's little cottage in Cape Breton is the most beautiful and picturesque place that I've ever been. It is seriously even better than the pictures. Stewart was a caring and gracious host and showed us all the best places on the island to go to...I could not get enough of looking out of the cabin on all sides and seeing the ocean waves." MACY C.

"Our second stay at SeaSky Cottage was as good as it gets. The views from the deck are endless and the sunsets picture perfect. During the days we saw a half dozen pilot whales swim by one morning, a pack of seals the next afternoon and then there's always the bald eagles standing watch out on the point. Inside, the house is surprisingly spacious…. As city folk, it's a great place for us to get away from the grind and unwind, but the wireless allowed us to plug in and stay connected when need be. We’ve stayed at three of their other cottages and they are all charming in their own ways but they are consistently comfortable, stylish and have amazing views. What really tops it off though are the hosts. They are friendly and considerate and really make sure you have a good time and get the most out of your stay. Even after coming all these years, Stewart stopped by with a few new ideas of places to visit or where was new to eat nearby. We brought my in-laws with us for the first time this year (they stayed at TumbleSea - which was cool because we had our own spaces, but they were just a 100 yards away through a path in the trees). Stewart made sure he personalized their experience as newbies to the Cape and a little slower in their older age. We really appreciated it. We will definitely be back for our sixth visit next year." DEREK R. 2018

"This was our second trip here. We came here first two years ago for a week and loved it so much we returned for two weeks this time -- and it still went by too quickly! It’s simply a wonderful place to completely unwind and relax. The cottage itself is truly special. Very simple, but comfortable, with an expansive deck and spectacular water views. It really is even more beautiful than the pictures. In fact, the cottage was so comfortable that on any given day we had trouble getting ourselves out to get to the beach or take advantage of the numerous nearby attractions; we were just too relaxed to bother leaving."
