                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1968

                          About the owner: Our descendants all come from Cape Breton and moved to Halifax and Boston in the early 1900's but Cape Breton is where our heart's are. Three generations of family come back each year to this very special part of the world that is so beautiful and a respite from the heat and pace of city life.

                          Why the Owner Chose Baddeck:
                          Our parents were avid sailors and The Brasdor lakes provide some of the best saling in the world. Our property is right on the water with spectacular views so they fell in love with the property on their cruises throughout the lakes back in the 50's.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          This a two hundred acre property with two cottages. The main house offers a great family gathering place and the additional cottage offers great privacy. There is a brand new expansive deck that is wonderful for taking in the spectacular views and reading books.
