About the property

Country home with 4 Bedrooms (2 queen beds, 2 doubles) on a wooded private hill

The House On The Hill is located in Breton Cove, a tiny fishing community on the Cabot Trail. Hidden away in the woods with a 220 metre driveway, it affords total privacy. The house is halfway between Baddeck and Ingonish, making it easy to access golf courses, museums, beaches, hiking trails, and the spectacular scenery of Cape Breton Island.

The Cape Breton Highlands National Park is only 30 minutes away, it has excellent beaches, and great hiking. Wildlife abounds in the park, but it is also present just outside the house. Moose, fox, eagles, and even the occasional black bear, are your neighbours. We ask that you refrain from feeding the wildlife and to remember that they are wild creatures living in the wilderness.

The house sits on a treed hillside with views of the ocean through the foliage. A spacious lawn provides a safe setting for children and barbecues. Little River Harbour is just down the road. Lobster and crab can be bought right off the boats during the seasons. Boating excursions for fishing, sightseeing, whale watching can be arranged locally. There is a swimming beach at Little River harbour popular with the locals and visitors alike. Close by are several artisan shops featuring works in glass, leather, and other mediums. Excellent pottery, iron works sculptures, funky hats, and pewter casts are some of the things you will find. Music is a big part of Cape Breton life and there are Ceilidhs to attend for toe tapping traditional fiddle tunes.

The house features a central atrium stairway with 4 bedrooms (2 Queen beds and 2 Double beds). there is a large 'sunroom' for relaxation and socializing, as well as an interior living room with televison. The open concept kitchen/dining area is large and well appointed with stove and oven, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, and eating and cooking utensils. There is a breakfast counter with seating, as well as a pine dining room table. A gas barbecue sits outside. WIFI, television with basic cable and Netflix, books, and games are there for your entertainment in the evenings and the occasional rainy day. The bathroom upstairs has a cast iron bathtub with shower. The lower bathroom has a shower as well as washing machine and dryer. The property has walking trails close by, several longer trails are in the area.

The master bedroom is quite large with a queen bed and a sitting area, ample closet space and dresser. The second bedroom also features a queen bed. There is a nook with a desk and bookshelves, and a hanging closet. The third bedroom is small with a sloped ceiling where the double bed is. It's cozy and cute, kids love it. The fourth bedroom is downstairs and also features a double bed. This room, at ground level, is large and pleasant, the bathroom is next to it which makes it perfect for those less mobile. It also holds the water heather and water pressure tank.

The house has a terrace at the front, and a raised deck at the rear, with an additional terrace at the entrance to the sun room. There is ample parking.

This is strictly a NO SMOKING house. In addition, all cleaning products we use are "NO SCENT" in consideration of persons with allergies. We ask that you use our scent free detergent for your wash, and refrain from using scented products or spray scents in our home. NO PETS allowed for allergy relief as well.
