About the property

Beautiful modern 3+ bedroom, 2.5 bath cottage completed in 2015.

Our Cape Breton cottage has a unique design to ensure both privacy while sleep/relaxing and also an open community feel. Designed for families, our cottage has the kids bedroom (with two bunk beds) furthest from the common area. You don't have to worry about waking the kids after 7:30pm.

The cottage has great beds, brand new appliances, and really well stocked kitchen to make your say relaxing and worry free.

Outside, you will have over 500+ feet of private lakefront with a small stone and sand beach...great for kids to play and swim. Our 22 foot dock allows for a great place to jump off into the water. Surrounding the property is a fully treed natural forest that give an amazing sense of privacy.

Our cottage was designed to encourage being outdoors or in the common areas. The bedrooms have comfortable mattresses for sleeping and great light for relaxing but are small (with big closest) to encourage going outside or gathering in the spacious common area.

We love our cottage and hope you will as well. Our first year renting was a huge success with everyone loving the property . We have added a few more kitchen utensils, more life jackets, and games of peoples requests. We used Homeaway to for years to find places and know what it means to be a great host and we will strive to do that.

This is a great spot come and check out a unique cottage in Cape Breton.

Our cottage is located on the beautiful Bras d'Or Lake and near the centre of Cape Breton. Most of our time is spent in a big city so when we come to our cottage we appreciate the privacy; our closest neighbour is over 500ft away and blocked by a real forest.

Baddeck and Whycocomagh are both about 15 minutes away from cottage in opposite directions. Baddeck has all the amenities of a small town including a hospital, fresh fish shop, coffee shop, restaurants, bars, beaches, farmers markets.

On your drive to Baddack you will pass a fantastic breakfast and lunch spot, the Herring Choker and a micro-brewery Big Spruce (their kitchen party IPA is awesome).

If you are a golfer, you are in luck Cape Breton has some amazing courses.

The Cabot Links, ranked #42 in the world, is one hour away.

Bell Bay, in downtown Baddeck, is 25 minutes away.

The Lakes, carved into a mountain side, is 1.5 hours away.

Highland Link, inside a national park, is 1 hour and forty minutes away.

For hiking, there are lots of amazing spots like the Skyline Trail and Uisge Ban Falls. The later is a great trail for kids 3+ plus.

If it is your first trip to Cape Breton here are a bunch of other fantastic things to check out: Fortress of Louisbourg, Highland Village, Miners Museum, Alexander Graham Bell Museum, and much more.

Our kids rarely want to leave our cottage but when they do there are a few things around us for them to do. There is a small railway museum, a small playground at the school in Baddeck, Kidston Beach in Baddeck (great for kids playing in the water), lunch at Herring Choker, and a ton of different beaches.

Hopefully this gives you a good feel for everything around our cottage! Please ask any questions you might talking about Cape Breton.
