St. Peters cottage description

4400 sq. ft. cottage with a large 20 ft x 20 ft covered screened deck that overlooks the ocean. The master bedroom is 20 ft x 20 ft with a walk in closet and full ensuite with whirlpool tub. A large 800 sq. ft. loft and 2 - 12 ft x 14 ft bedrooms can easily accomodate 12 people. An exercise room and media room with high speed internet and satellite TV make this the complete vacation home. The large kitchen, dining and great room are combined with cathedral ceilings in an open concept with a wall of windows overlooking the ocean. Other features include a propane fireplace and double doors leading to the spacious screen deck.

The beach is only 100 feet away from the cottage where you can swim, kayak, snorkel and look for sea shells and is perfect for a late evening cook--out or beach party. From the deck you can watch eagles, hawks, hummingbirds and loons or simply be enchanted by the sounds and sights of the Atlantic Ocean.

Nestled in picturesque Rocky Bay, this cottage is close to hiking and biking trails with several surrounding villages to visit. The cottage is off the 'beaten path' but close to all amenities and is 10 minutes from the town of Arichat and 40 minutes from Port Hawkesbury and the Canso Causeway. The cottage is a 3-1/2 hour drive from Halifax International Airport and is 1-1/2 hours from Sydney Airport. The cottage is ideally located to take advantage of all that Cape Breton has to offer and ideal for day trips to Baddeck, the Highlands, the Fortress of Louisbourg, the Bras d'Or Lakes and several world class golf courses.

Rocky Bay is located on Isle Madame and has many bays, waterways and canal access to the Bras d'Or Lakes for boating enthusiasts

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: Kevin and Bea Pelley are the property owners and Bea grew up in Rocky Bay, just down the road. Kevin grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia and Bea and Kevin reside outside Halifax with their 2 sons.

                      Why the Owner Chose St. Peters:
                      For years we vacationed in Rocky Bay starting with an RV and then a small cottage on a piece of land. When we decided to build our dream summer home, we were fortunate that a property with great beach front came up for sale. Kevin grew up in Halifax and immediately fell in love with Rocky Bay. We spend our vacations and many weekends in Rocky Bay and love the things it has to offer. Beautiful scenery, the beach, the atlantic ocean, the fresh air, the calming sound of the waves and the peacefullness of the area. The community is friendly and close knit and has events throughout the year. Walking and exploring on the beach or hiking or biking the trails, Rocky Bay has so much to offer and we absolutely love it.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      You will never forget the smell of fresh ocean air and the sound of rolling waves when you go to sleep at night. Sitting at the campfire and star gazing while the ocean waves break in the background is something you will never forget and will never want to leave. You wake up every day to a new experience as you see mother nature at its finest. Rocky Bay is truly a remarkable place that everyone should have the chance to visit.
