Port Hood house description
The Stone House is situated in an acre of lush old fashioned gardens overlooking the road and hill down to the beach just minutes away.
The house sleeps nine people. We offer four clean comfortably furnished spacious bedrooms. Three rooms have double beds (no queen or king size beds) and the fourth has three twin spool beds.
Upstairs is a shared full bath with shower and toilet.
The main floor features “The Quiet Room”, a lovely sunny living room for reading, free WiFi, and a very early beautiful satinwood grand piano. The dining room seats nine people and the views look out to the ocean sunsets and Port Hood Island.
A television DVD player is provided with a small selection of films for all ages. (no cable)
A fully equipped kitchen with stove, fridge, dishwasher and microwave catches the morning light. There is also a “powder room” (sink and toilet ) on the main floor.
As well as one of the warmest and most beautiful beaches in Cape Breton we have many nature walks and trails nearby, as well as boat tours to Port Hood Island (one mile from shore) We also have a kayak and surf-sailor for those who know how to use them.
The downstairs servants quarters, now a small apartment, is for the private use of the owners. It has a private back Entrance.
One of the owners may occasionally be on site throughout summer. Gillian McCulloch is a Nova Scotian artist and when visiting may be quietly working away on her paintings.
Come and make this your home base to explore Cape Breton. Enjoy a friendly and unique summer holiday!

ReviewsWrite a review
We really enjoyed our stay at the beautiful stone house. It was clean, comfortable and so close to many great things to do. The beach is fantasic and so close. Watching the sun set on the front steps became one of our favourite things to do every evening. Highly recommend the stone house and Port Hood!

Year Purchased: 1961
About: The Stone House was bought by our parents Commander Paul and Joyce McCulloch in 1961. Our family spent many happy summer holidays over the next fifty years as Paul and Joyce lovingly restored the house, room by room. Now owned by sisters, Sarah and Gillian McCulloch and Debora Bastos, the tradition of welcoming visitors to this beautiful place continues.
Why Port Hood:
The Stone House is a Cape Breton landmark Heritage Home. This unique house was built in 1860 by The Honourable Peter Smyth. Three generations of Smyths lived here until 1961 when the last Smyth (Eleanor) moved to Hollywood, California. Maintaining this wonderful house for everyone to enjoy was our parents' wish.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Whether coming in summer for the beach and to golf or in fall to photograph the spectacular fall colours and to enjoy the International Celtic Colours music festival you are welcome to make The Stone House your home base.Look forward to peace and quiet in lovely surroundings, fresh air and fire-flies, lobster and oysters, nature walks and friendly local culture.
