This amazing and private property is nestled snuggly on the most Northern tip of Cape Breton Island. Relax on the deck with one of the books from the private library as you listen to the whales playing in the Atlantic, or travel the short distance to the wharf for fresh seafood and take in some of the local entertainment: you, too, will want to dance a jig to the fiddler's tune.
This well loved and immaculately kept home makes a perfect artist's retreat, or family get getaway, or impossibly romantic honeymoon: it has something for everyone. Roast marshmallows in the fire pit after a fantastic hike or share a glass of wine on the balcony off the master bedroom.
Owned by a local, fifth generation fisherman with his wife and daughters who want to share the joy (and maybe a moose or two) with you and your loved ones. Enjoy an authentic Cape Breton retreat now: the friendliest people, the most splendid panoramic view, and the harmony of nature are waiting for you.
For stays less than 1 week we charge a $50 cleaning fee.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

About the owner: We are Cape Bretoners, a fisherman and an English professor, who cherish our first home but presently live across the country with our two daughters.
Why the Owner Chose Capstick: We simply want to share our family home with those whom will also love it and allow people to experience a special area with rich heritage which is too often missed in trips around the Cabot Trail.
The Unique Benefits at this House: It is the only place one can fully relax, without distractions. It encompasses the best of everything: 129 acres of fields and mountains and ocean view. Its pristine, natural setting is a rare commodity and inevitably brings peace and enjoyment.
