                  Our house, a wonderful Cape Breton 'Century House,' is the place you go if you're looking for breathtaking natural beauty, old world friendliness and tranquility, soaring eagles, true Celtic music, and serenity, all far, far away from the nearest shopping mall.

                  You can walk miles of unspoiled beaches, hike or bike the Cabot Trail, dine in the 'city' of Baddeck, enjoy some of the most famous salmon fishing in the world, play golf on highland links courses, canoe or kayak, or simply mark the passing days by the number of eagles spotted soaring overhead.
