Peaceful retreat with resident wildlife such as bald eagles and ospreys fishing in the river and hummingbirds at our feeder, yet close to local amenities (15 minute drive to Port Hawesbury).Our cottage is located on a tidal river within easy reach of the Cabot trail, ocean beaches, golf, whale watching, and other Cape Breton attractions too numerous to list.

The cottage is set in a rural setting with plenty of privacy but within easy driving distance to many areas. I cannot say enough about the caretakers of the property. They were inviting and very helpful. The cottage is perfect for getting away from the bustle of the city. I cannot say enough, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
