About Roland & Sandra Chiasson

Sandra & I are true Acadians born and raised in the beautiful village of Cheticamp. We travelled all over the world while serving the Canadian Armed Forces. We returned to live in Cheticamp 20 years ago. We enjoy golfing, hiking, the beaches, the amazing ocean and mountain views and most of all, we love the area because it's home.

Roland & Sandra Chiasson purchased this house in 1997

Why Roland & Sandra Chiasson chose Chéticamp

This harbour property use to be a small general store in the 1930's owned by my mother-in-law's uncle. It was owned by many owners until we returned and had a vision of living on the waterfront. Our dream of creating a harbour escape has become a reality and we hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

What makes this house unique

The benefits of staying at "Harbour Escape" is that it's comfortable, you will find peace, serenity, it is private, has a porch swing, table and chairs on top and lower deck. Your very own BBQ, fantastic views of colorful fishing boats coming and going and the many amazing sunsets. You are at walking distance to restaurants, pubs, whale watching, bank, pharmacy and 18 hole golf course. This is the only harbour vacation home on the waterfront.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is one of the best houses we have ever rented. It's location to the docks, decks, sunsets, restaurants and peacefulness. We hiked throughout the park, enjoyed the Celtic Colours music & dinners. You have provided everything required for a comfortable stay. We will recommend your house to our friends.

Beautiful Property - Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property! Clean, well-appointed, updated, and beautiful. Cabinets were well-stocked, linens were ample, and the house is very easy to navigate. I loved the location - on the water with quick and easy access to the park. The owners were very easy to work with and had warm banana bread, a bottle of wine, and coffee ready for us upon arrival. Truly a wonderful experience!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Corine for the wonderful compliments and hope you didn't mind spending a night without power. I guess there was a few power poles knocked down on the main street. The next day everything was back on track. You certainly lucked in on some good weather for November. So grateful you enjoyed your stay.

Perfect In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you walk in the door you know you made the right choice. The decor is refined modern and comfortable. Nothing has been missed by way of amenities. The space is spotless. The view is fascinating. The vibe is most welcoming with a banana loaf, bottle of wine and coffee beans in the coffee grinder ready for your first cup of java. And even though the property is right on the Cabot Trail it is quiet and peaceful. This property is perfect in every way!

unique location

  • 4 of 5

Location was unique, was a little worried at first being right on top of a small marina but it turned out we all loved the location and enjoyed watching boats going in and out. Very comfortable furnishings. Loved the art work done by owner. Would recommend highly to others

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Sandra and Roland have created a lovely home environment to match the beautiful environment of Cheticamp. This comfortable, beautifully decorated apartment is spacious and has everything one could possibly need for a visit there. There is the option to cook or bbq right there which we did more than once, yet it is walking distance to many lovely restaurants. There are three levels from which to enjoy the view of the marina, fishing boats, island and sunsets! We brought my elderly parents with us and were a little nervous of the stairs, but the non-slip surface outdoors and excellent handrails both in and out made them confident. The extra heigh toilet seats were a real bonus! Everything was even better than expected and Roland and Sandra are very friendly and accommodating. Thank you so much!
