This lovely house is exactly as advertised and more! It's super clean, has a great bed, and your hosts Catherine & Tony are such wonderful people. Tony has a passion for bread making which we were lucky to sample along with the breakfast that Catherine made for us. Within short driving distance is the red shoe restaurant for any other meals and good local beer. We consider ourselves lucky to have had the opportunity to stay with them. We recommend this place and we would definitely come back. Thanks Catherine & Tony.

Catherine and Tony are wonderful hosts'. The view from 'the blue house on top of the hill' is spectacular. Their warmth and welcome is second to none.

If you are looking for stunning views and a quaint town, Mabou is an excellent choice. We watched the sun and moon set over the harbour from the luxurious accommodations at Catherine and Tony's. Everything was perfect during our stay, down to the smallest details. We shared tea and cookies, conversation, and laughs! Tony and Catherine are so generous and went out of their way to make sure our trip was excellent. We would certainly stay here again, and I would not hesitate to send my family! Many thanks! And hope to see you both again soon!

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Catherine and Tony's! They welcomed us and made us feel at home. Their place is absolutely gorgeous, with a beautiful ocean view. Thank you Catherine and Tony again. You've made our Cape Breton trip a memorable one!

Catherine and Tony's place has a beautiful view and is very cozy and welcoming. They are very nice people and very easy to talk to :) Staying with them allowed us to see two different parts of Cape Breton--all beautiful! There are some very nice beaches around their place. Catherine and Tony were great about recommending restaurants, things to do and talking about how beautiful the Maritimes are! We recommend staying with them! :)

So great that you made it to the beach! Tony and I admire your enhusiasm and how you are making your new life together in this country. All the best. ...and yes, would love a copy of picture!

Catherine and Tony are amazing hosts. The second we came to the door they made us feel welcome and at home. They have a beautiful home with an amazing view of the ocean and coastline. Also the nearby Red Shoe Pub had a great selection of food and great live Celtic music. If you're near Mabou, staying with Catherine and Tony is a must!

Catherine and Tony are the sweetest people! Catherine went out looking for me (I was arriving by bike) when I didn't arrive on time and they fed me once I got there. They were also happy to store my bike in their garage for the night. It was great chatting with them and learning a bit more about Mabou. Tony even dropped me off on his way to work. Their home was very comfortable and clean and had a wonderful view! Their house is a great place to stay if you're driving but it was a little hard to get to by bike as it was near the top of a mountain and the road leading up to it wasn't very well maintained (much to their chagrin). Definitely a nice place to stay!

My husband and I are retired and built our new home three years ago after moving into this beautiful area from Toronto, Ontario.
We love our new community and are involved in volunteering and participating in all the wonderful aspects of a small community. Walking is a great pastime especially on our beaches and nearby trails.
When living in Toronto, we hosted a number of foreign students who were coming to learn English. We were responsible for incorporating them into our life during their month stay. We got to know some very diverse young people from many different countries
We are both people persons and enjoy meeting new folks from all walks of life.
