Property description

Vacation rentals for the 2015 season will be taken beginning in January.

Lovely cottage, @1300 sq feet built in 2005, vaulted ceiling, . Bonus room with TV and DVD in loft area. White sandy beach is perfect for families. Very swimmable water, which at low tide creates warm pools and sand bars just made for water games and exploring. There is a life guarded beach 150 ft to the North.

There are 2 possible launching places for your boat. Big boats @ a mile to the north, small boats on the beach in front of the cottage. Plenty of space to park your boat at the cottage.

Summer is filled with 'Ceilidhs'-a Gaelic word that means to dance and party. Traditional fiddle music and Scottish step dancing are indigenous to this area.

There is a computer center in the Library just up the street, as well as a medical clinic in Port Hood. The cottage is rented for no less than a week during high season, and no fewer than 5 days during off season periods. Your well-behaved dog is welcome.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

Why the Owner Chose Port Hood:
The area reminded us of Cape Cod-40 years ago-except no traffic, uncrowded beaches and the Gaelic influence. Cape Breton Island has truly astounding scenery,(We are @ 1 1/2 hours to the Cabot Trail, with wonderful hiking trails and scenic drives everywhere in between.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We enjoy the beautiful sandy beach in front of the cottage, a place where if you're lucky, you might see bald eagles teaching their young. We love seeing the fishing boats heading home in the late afternoon. (We hope they're heavy with lobsters)
