I built the the cottage originally as a third small gallery for our pottery business. It was eventually closed when we opened at another location, and I was determined subsequently to find a good use for this classic building. There was a lovely spot on the property with spectacular views. I moved the building in November of 2011, and started the additions to the Deep Blue Sea Cottage throughout 2012. It is a lovely location with with old-growth hardwood forests behind, and awesome unobstructed views of the ocean. These views of the ocean, Chimney Corner Beach, and Sea Wolf/Margaree Island are simply amazing. There is also all of the privacy one could want. This building has an interesting history, and makes a perfect getaway for a couple, with complete privacy and solitude.
Stewart purchased this cottage in 2002
Why Stewart chose Chimney Corner
Cape Breton is a spectacular place, and the scenery on this stretch of coast is particularly striking; it can also be dramatic, with 130 kph winds at many points of the year. One must keep a clean yard in such conditions! We see some of the most dramatic sunsets anywhere, watch whales play in our front yard, and fishermen haul their lobster traps every year. Moose, eagles, deer and foxes are regulars. You are also close to the Cabot Trail (5 minutes), the National Park (25 minutes), and other towns and villages (5-15 minutes). If you are a golfer, you are not far from Cabot Links in Inverness, which offers one of the great and unique golf experiences in North America; now ranked 43nd in the world, Cabot Cliffs, (even more spectacular- ranked #9 in the world by Golf Digest!) was developed by Ben Cowan-Dewar and Mike Keiser (who developed Bandon Dunes in Oregon). The acclaim so far is pretty much unanimous-from the New York Times to Golf Digest.
What makes this cottage unique
There's just nothing like this cottage; it has all of the comforts of our other cottages, yet has an interesting history, and this shows in both the structure of the building and in the new additions. There's a real sense of romance and intimacy here, as well as a veranda which is stunning- what an incredible panorama stretching out before you! Not to mention unlimited walks through a gorgeous old-growth hardwood forest! You will have a woods-surrounded road to yourself for walks, and views everywhere. There's a lovely new restaurant opening this summer just a half-mile north of this cottage. Chimney Corner beach is one of the finest on the island, and it's mostly unoccupied during the week– in addition to the fine beach and swimming, there are interesting rock formations to explore nearby. Cape Breton is a spectacular place, and you'll find the scenery on this stretch of coastline particularly striking. There is no shortage of things to do in the area. In addition to Chimney Corner beach, there are other great beaches to check out nearby: Whale Cove (5 minutes away) at which you can explore a fabulous bluff by the sea, with great views north and south, Margaree Harbour (7 minutes away), with its beach and two lighthouses, the Broad Cove area, which offers a spectacular scenic drive, a great beach and a buffalo ranch. Cheticamp, about 20 minutes away, offers glimpses into Acadian culture. Only minutes from Cheticamp is Cape Breton Highlands National Park, with trails, lookoffs and waterfalls. There are the gorgeous rolling hills of Mabou, and the town of Inverness, which offers music, pubs and food; the acclaimed new Cabot Cliffs golf course by the sea, which is only 20 minutes away and offers a unique golfing experience in Inverness. There are also renowned crafters in the area; interesting pottery, quilting, rug hooking, and folk art can all be found locally.
