We stayed in a small cottage right on the water. Million dollar views. We were simply stunned by the natural beauty of this location. Cottages are well-stocked. Highly recommend the take-out place up the road a bit; one of the best lobster rolls we have ever eaten!!! Ingonish is not-to-be-missed lovely. Make sure you do the Middlehead Trail. One of the best hikes on the Cape.

I highly recommend these little cottages. The view is stunning and unobstructed. You can buy lobster right off the docks just a walk away if you want! The cottages are well kept, stocked with everything you need and updated nicely. They’re super clean and have a cozy feeling. Perfect getaway! Linda is a lovely host too and happy to help, or not, if you want a quiet getaway.

This was the second trip back for my mom and I- we stayed just one night in Lochiel last September and were so sad to leave after finding such an amazing spot right on the ocean. We stayed for a week in Lochiel at the end of September and had a wonderful time. Linda is an amazing host and creates such a cozy, clean and wonderful cottage with so many personal touches. Linda was so easy to work with while we were trying to coordinate our vacation dates. The location is wonderful- so close to great hiking trails, Cape North, Middlehead Trail and many, many others. We also enjoyed a few rainy days in the cottage- knitting, reading and listening to the waves pound outside. It was also fun to grill a few seafood dinners, although there are great restaurants around. We will definitely be back to Lochiel!

Room Tip: All of the cottages seem to be a great location and very close to the ocean- all with amazing views!

The Point Cottages by the Sea are excellent. Myself and 3 friends stayed in the Glencoe cottage and it was fantastic. It was extremely clean and comfortable. Linda does an excellent job in meeting the needs of your visit. Both herself and Brenda keep the cottages spic and span. The area around the Point is beautiful. Enjoyed watching the lobster boats, the beautiful sunset and scenery. Also love the nice weather and the piece and quiet. We enjoyed traveling the Cabot Trail, going whale watching, eating excellent food at different places and the people are so friendly and helpful.

Ocean surrounds you. So many places to see and hike nearby but all I wanted to do was sit on the deck and watch gannets diving and lobster boats working. It is absolutely beautiful. Lochinvar cottage was delightful. Comfy bed. Everything you need to cook with. Loved that they had a compost bin too. Stay here if you can!!
