Company information

We enjoy reading, and getting to know our guests on a personal note. Of course, we love the beach and nature as well as, especially when we can call it home.

Property information

Like the name suggests, our property consists of a Hill and a beautiful Hollow. Our property is tucked away from the main road, which provides peace and tranquility during your stay with us. With the ocean only feet away from your doorstep, you'll find that the sound of the waves will sing you to sleep every night and greet you every morning. Our property is small, providing a very intimate feel when it comes to your interaction with our staff and other guests.

Neighbourhood information

The Cabot Trail, and Ingonish as well, is a very popular tourist destination throughout the summer. There are always lots of activities to do during the day and wonderful places to go for live music in the evenings.
