Back Cove Cottages

222 New Haven Road

902-336-2812


Back Cove Cottages are located in the small fishing village of Neils Harbour, along the world-famous Cabot Trail in the scenic Cape Breton Island region of Nova Scotia. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery and sunrises daily as the refreshing salt air caresses your skin. Sit on the patio deck and watch the fishing boats haul their catch while seagulls, gannets and eagles fly by, and spot pods of whales feeding in the waters just offshore.

We are one kilometer off the Cabot Trail on the scenic alternate route. Activities can easily be reached from this location. Cape Breton Highlands National Park offers 26 hiking trails ranging from easy 20-minute strolls to challenging climbs with a panoramic view of canyons, seacoasts and splendid waterfalls. Take advantage of the aquatic adventures that can be had in the area, such as sea kayaking and whale watching tours. Play a round of golf at Highland Links, framed by the rugged coastline and the mountainous contours of the Cape Breton Highlands.

Our accommodations include two 2-bedroom cottages (twin and double beds, sofa-bed) with 4-piece baths. The kitchen is complete with refrigerator, microwave, electric stove, toaster and coffee-maker for guests’ convenience. For entertainment there is satellite television and DVD player. Patio deck, complete with barbecue, overlooks the ocean. We accept cash or banking e-transfer; no credit cards, please.

Cancellation Policy: Must cancel 72 hours prior to day of arrival.
