RENTAL IS FOR EVENTS ONLY. WE ARE NOT INTERESTED IN SINGLE COTTAGE RENTALS.
Summer Snow is a privately owned cluster of cottages, support buildings, pleasure boats, sailboats and golf carts. It is not a commercial resort even though it can sleep from 24 to 45 guests depending on how many couples. It has held private events from 10 to over 250 people. We are located on the shores of the beautiful Bras d'or Lakes on Cape Breton Island, situated on 78 acres of pristine land with mountains, large green fairways, a large event center, commercial kitchen and an event hall that seats 75 to 100. We have a large 40 foot suspended wharf where you can fish or swim. Our indoor pool is heated to 80 degrees Fahrenheit 26.4 Celsius all summer and fall. Our Yacht is part of the rental and can day sail with 25 people. Sail to the right you have hundreds of miles of Lakes, turn left and you have open Ocean. ALL PICTURES WERE TAKEN ON THE PROPERTY.
