Bras d'Or Lake cottage description

Open concept newly renovated 100 year old school house!
Enjoy your holiday in central location of Cape Dauphin (20 minute drive to Baddeck) at the base of Kelly's Mountain, in a school house that is newly renovated, over 1200 square feet, cathedral ceilings, original hardwood floors and wainscoting throughout, open concept kitchen and living area, bedroom on main level and a very large loft area on the second level which has two single beds and a queen bed, half bathroom and separate shower/tub room on the main level, large wrap around deck, bright and private with great views of the Bras D'or Lakes, nice breeze from ocean. There is a lovely sandy beach sometimes rocky spots depending on the years tidal action, just a 5 to 10 min walk (down a path, across a dirt road and down a driveway). For those who have trouble walking you can drive. There is a fire tub on the beach so you can collect wood along the beach and have a fire if you desire (of course weather permitting ). Very private and secluded. Pets are welcome (we charge a pet fee).

We also have two other properties with potential availability in the same area that could be booked if there is a gathering of families.

Restaurants and grocery store: There are a few restaurants close by. The cottage is approximately a 15 min drive down a dirt road (good condition) to the Trans Canada Highway. There are two good restaurants 10 min from the TransCanada Highway.

Cedar House Family Restaurant and Bakery
Fitzgeralds Family Restaurant and Bakery

The grocery store is 20 min drive to North Sydney or a 20 min drive to Baddeck.
