"We thoroughly enjoyed three nights at Island Sunset and should have stayed longer. From the comfortable cottages with the magnificent view of the ocean, watching the owner Wayne and his men building a dock, chatting and laughing with them, then Wayne inviting us to tour his lobster warehouse operations, welcoming smiles at the front desk, watching the sunset from your own porch in comfy Adirondack chairs, to the amazing lobster and crab dinners from the Lobster Pound - where you can feast on two lobsters one night and a lobster and pound of crab meat on the next night for a total of only $35 per person - total for both nights! Prepared and delivered with a smile to your personal cottage!! Oh, yes, the desserts from the Restaurant - big and deliciously decadent! The only place we will stay on Cape Breton. Thank you all for a wonderful visit. Ron and Rose"
