Recent Reviews

A delightful Nova Scotia Retreat

5 of 5
The four of us (two couples in our 70s) were very impressed with our three day stay at this Mira Bradan Waterfront Retreat. We toured, hiked and dined in the Cape Breton Highland National Park, the Cabot trail and nearby cities and towns. We were fortunate to have wonderful weather. The "Retreat" property was clean, spacious, quiet, scenic and comfortable. The views of the river and surrounding area were magnificent. I wish we had had time to spend a week or two but "maybe next time".
