Property description

This charming getaway is located within walking distance of the village of Baddeck, and .3 miles from the local Bell Bay Golf course and less than an hour drive to Bandon Dunes "Cabot Links" and "Cabot Cliffs" courses in Inverness. Golfers can have the best of both worlds staying here.

World class views of the Bras d'Or Lakes are seen from every door and window. A private Cape Breton beach and dock are just steps away from the cottage.
Enjoy sightseeing and easy living- many local activities: golfing, sailing, swimming, kayaking, hiking, and relaxing! The property is absolutely beautiful and well maintained. It is spacious, lined with hedges, trees, gardens and a tall fence making it totally private and peaceful. The waterfront porch is an excellent place from which to view the morning and evening sunscapes and the restful mountainside across the lake.
This property offers a modern kitchen, cozy living area with original stone fireplace, large dining room, master bedroom with king size bed, upstairs loft bedroom with twin beds, a full size bed, and half bath. Also, a separate guest cottage: king bed, sitting area, and full bath with shower.


Local Interests and Activities: This property is just a few miles from The Cabot Trail and easy access to daily Cape Breton Island sightseeing.

Baddeck is a major tourist destination: home of the Alexander Graham Bell Museum, as well as numerous restaurants, shops,The Bras d'Or Yacht Club, a government wharf with tour boats, and Bell Bay Golf course (rated the best new golf course in Canada)

There are many ways to be part of these activities-rent a kayak, sail off the wharf, charter a boat, or take a ferry over to Kidston's Island Beach for a local swim!

Satellite TV included

Wireless internet included

Sailors and Seaworthy Crew: Sailors and those nautically inclined, will feel right at home watching colorful spinnakers on boats sailing down the Baddeck Bay along with kayaks, paddle boats and windsurfers- all able to be enjoyed from our waterfront covered porch!

Choose from:
1) Sailboat and motor boat tours in Baddeck at the Government Wharf
2) Charter vessels for the day or week from local villagers and businesses
3) Rent kayaks, canoes, and paddleboats in the village center by the Government Wharf
4) Other nearby cruise options include Whale watching and Puffin bird watching tours

Celtic Colours October Festival: October features the Celtic Colours Music Festival. In Cape Breton, you'll also find interesting highland dancing and music all over the island. In cafes and restaurants, in concert halls, and churches, as well as on quaint street corners.

The change of seasons and beginning of the fall weather welcome visitors to experience all that the area has to offer!

When you've finished for the day, come back to our cozy cottage for a bit of quiet relaxation and beautiful waterfront views.

Owner info

About the owner: Our family has been vacationing and enjoying Nova Scotia for over 40 years. We love the location, the sights, sounds and people of Cape Breton. Our extended family is here and we invite friends and relatives to visit this special spot as well!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This very special spot is located right near the Cabot Trail as well as the village of Baddeck. It makes for easy touring, golfing hiking and exploring Cape Breton by day- where ever you might plan travel- then returning to a welcoming cottage location in the afternoon or evening, with all the comforts and luxuries you need to relax while on vacation, enjoying the waterfront views across the Bras d'Or Lakes. Consider staying on the premises for a day and take advantage of a 'day off' spent reading on the picturesque porch or down on the renovated dock area for a swim, kayak or sail! Water crafts can be rented in town for the day or the week. Plan on staying here at least a week and look forward to memories that will ask you to return again..and again!
