Perfect family cottage for exploring Cape Breton Island. Cozy and welcoming. Great whale watching just around the corner. Host family is fantastic; even visited their garden for dinner one night. We honeymooned on the island close to thirty years ago. What a treat to return...More

About the neighbourhood
Pleasant Bay is a sleepy little fishing village nestled in the foothills of the Highlands National Park. Through winter there is a one-store-town of about 120 people.
