Breton Cove house description
Between Breton and Wreck Cove they say there's buried treasure. Use your Breton Cove Hideaway as a jumping off point for your own great treasure hunt.
Sample wild blueberries in fields with eagles flying overhead. Take a path to the beach smelling fresh mint in the woods. Hike down to the beach and you'll find myriad shells and rocks of many colors. About a km further south there's sandy beaches and caves and a fresh pond on one side. Watch for trout at dusk. Ask for clues for treasure holes!!
Return to the Hideaway and relax in a spacious living room with extended Douglas fir beams, 4 bedrooms sleeping 8, cozy stoves in dining and living rooms, a deck ... Even a ballfield across the Cabot Trail, for the young of heart and body next to the Gaelic Singers hall just across the Cabot Trail.
Enjoy a day pass at sister property Cabot Shores or an evening of entertainment great food. Then return for romance or an evening with your family.

ExcellentGuest comment entered by owner
The most restful part of N.S/Cape Breton is your cove. To boot, the hospitality and service were excellent - Paul, Barbara, Jackie and Mackenzie were unfailingly thoughtful. And hats off to our Australian chef. Paul and Ann Turnbull - Lawrence, Kansas, USA

Thank you so much for offering us an amazing place to stay and camp. We are so happy to have found such a rustic and natural camping spot and great hospitality. We have camped in many places, but we must honestly say that number 7 has been the best yet. All the best!

...A Magical Time.
We stayed at the farmhouse. Intimate, cozy, and perfect for a family. People went for a fun walk down to ocean view- even saw a seal! Talked about the view all day. A perfect jump-off point to Sydney, Louisburg, and the Cabot Trail! We had a magical time.
