Breton Cove farmhouse 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 basketball court and ball field across the Cabot Trail, for the young of heart and body.
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.
The Breton Cove HIdeaway is on the Cabot Trail. You'll find us the right side of the road as you head north towards Ingonish, 23k north of the Englishtown ferry, on the Atlantic coast of Cape Breton. Opposite us is the Gaelic Singers Hall and Community center, with a ball field, dugouts and a field suitable for soccer, Frisbee, baseball...
You can explore mountain trails, beautiful fields, and a gentle sloping forest leading down to a small pond and also to a beach on the Atlantic. You can walk south from beach to beach, finding sandy and rocky beaches and the famous Black Rock (Skir Dhu in Gaelic), where one time fishing boats were tied.
Keywords: A vacation home for multiple families, groups on retreat or just a couple wishing to spread out--pets included--with 60 acres above the Atlantic, blueberry fields, access to the Cape Breton Highlands and hiking trails, it is fully furnished and ready for the active traveler or one wishing peace and quiet with eagles flying overhead and the occasional moose at a distance passing by.

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

...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.

About the owner: Dr. Paul and Barbara are the owners and hosts at the Breton Cove Farmhouse.
Why the Owner Chose Breton Cove:
The location appealed to us because it's 60 acres along the Atlantic and 120 acres in the Cape Breton Highlands. When we found the farmhouse, we were told to bury it or burn it and rebuilt on site. Dr. Paul choose a third alternative, to renovate with local spruce and hemlock and imported douglass fir beams... I n 2000, we renovated the farmhouse which was a 19th century homestead.working farm which had horses, chickens, pigs and huge gardens and a sawmill.. Dr. Paul walked the land re-created trails that the Urquehardt family. The house had been a place where midwives delivered babies and there wee many adopted children. It has since become a spot for travelers who enjoy hiking, swimming, boating, cultural activities such as music in the Gaelic Singers hall across the road
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
1. Walkway above Atlantic with great views 2. Blue berry fields 3. Great local hiking 4. Nearby beaches 5. Across the road from the Gaelic Singers Hall along the Cabot Trail 6. A four bedroom place where groups (families and otherwise) can have privacy and also socialize, including pets
