We loved the scenic beauty of serene Lake Ainslie. What a beautiful wooden interior! It was both quaint and efficiently modern at the same time. Love the deck overlooking the lake. Communication was perfect. Highly recommend this Airbnb!

Michael's cottage was a serene place jut a short drive from Inverness. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and only wish we could have stayed there longer! Michael was a wonderful host, he even went out of his way to make us fresh bread and bring over his kayaks for our use. A clean, comfortable place that I would recommend to anyone who is visiting the West side of Cape Breton. Thanks for everything Michael!

Amazing location and host! Easy access to several nearby towns. Michael was super helpful and kind, and puts on music and movie events at his nearby property for guest to enjoy. Would definitely stay here again.

What a quaint lakeside chalet! Located on West LA and only a 10 - 15 minute ride into downtown Inverness, this home was perfect for a family of 5. Michael and Winnie were always available if there were any questions (about the house or travel destinations, etc) and so very welcoming. Not only did Michael leave us a copy of his book, but he also gave us freshly baked organic bread! We had a wonderful stay. We would recommend to anyone who is interested in staying in the area!

We travelled as a group of four friends to Cape Breton Island and feel like we totally lucked out finding the West LA Chalet! We were the first group to ever stay there and it was perfect for us. It was clean, comfortable and very cute! The location was very peaceful and being right on the lake the view every morning was unbeatable. In the evenings we saw bald eagles fly right over the chalet. Micheal was the best air bnb host I've experienced to date. He was so responsive, so helpful and he and his wife went the extra mile to ensure we had a great stay. If you are planning a trip to Cape Breton, I abolsutely reccomend this place! Just be ready for a bit of a drive to main attractions such as whale watching tours or the National HIghlands Park since this place is so secluded - but we didn't mind, we loved the peaceful aspect.
