Good times in Cheticamp
House was clean, beautifully located on the water. Loved the bald eagles who make the place home. All the people we met were friendly, engaging, giving us lots of information about life in Cape Breton. Germaine, of course, was a delight.
Location, location. location. A fairly simple house with basic amenities and a perfect location. Convenient to the Cabot trail we enjoyed two nights here. Priced a little high for the house itself but worth the price for the location.
Beautiful location! Wonderful host
Wow. We loved our stay at this cottage. It's off of a dirt road in between two small towns. The ocean is across the road. We actually saw a Minkie Whale from the front porch, with binoculars. The sunsets are spectacular. The host Germaine, was wonderful. We drove the Cabot Trail, went whale watching, hiked the Skyline Trail, and watched fishermen unload snow crab in Grand Etang. What a wonderful experience!
Loved our stay at this wonderful home. Booking was seamless- info provided by the owner was timely and very useful. Germaine - the local contact - was a pure joy to meet and made us feel at home and was a phone call away for any questions or concerns. The home is spacious and was very clean with all amenities. Home is well cared for both inside and out. What a view! Spectacular sunsets, watching the lobster boats drop their lobster pots, the eagle we saw fly by numerous times, the green mountain in the backyard - loved every minute! Loved our walks down to the beach - the rocky shore is beautiful. Right on the Cabot Trail and the Natuional Park was beautiful. (Make sure you do the Skyline hike). Hope to get back there again....
A Lovely Home in a Beautiful Spot
We stayed three nights in this lovely home. First impression was the view from the front porch and the sunset every evening. Inside were four comfortable bedrooms which were very clean. Two bathrooms and a nice size living area. The kitchen had everything you might need for meal prep, however, we only ate breakfast in. Germaine, who manages the property visited us one evening and was full of information about the area. But, what most impressed us was how warm and friendly she was. We found that with all the people we encountered on Cape Breton.
This property is well cared for and a delight to stay in.
Awesome view. Cute house with everything. Lots of room.
We really enjoyed this house. It was clean and had everything you could want. Great for families. Beautiful area and people. We loved meeting Germaine who is the wife of Russell's cousin. She maintains the property and will check in you. She is a special lady. You'll love this rental. Would definitely come again.
Located on the ocean with the mountains to our back. In a small fishing village and within walking distance to 2 lakes. It is a short drive to the national park (rated by National Geographic as the #1 island in North America) we own 200 hundred private acres nearby to hike. Great ATV trails.• The Cape Breton Highlands National Park is located just 15 minutes away from the house. It is just beyond Cheticamp as you travel the Cabot Trail. There are so many great hikes. A few of our favorites are the Skyline & the hike down to Fishing Cove. There are some great short ones, too - such as The Bog, and Lone Sheiling. They have maps of all the hikes at the Visitor Center • Gampo Abbey, a Buddhist monastery in the Shambhala tradition, is not too far. Pema Chodron is the principle teacher there. It is located in Pleasant Bay, which is a town in the middle of the National Park. It takes about 45-60 minutes to get there from the house. There may or may not be tours going on (I believe they end at the end of August), but you can walk all around the grounds & visit the Stupa. There are some fun hikes on the property, the view is amazing, and in general it is just a pretty amazing place • There are some great restaurants/cafes in the area. The All Aboard Restaurant and The Frog Pond Café in Cheticamp are two of our favorites. If you are travelling through Mabou - the Red Shoe Pub is a great spot. The Doryman Pub in Cheticamp has lots of great music (fiddling, great traditional music, etc). If you travel to Baddeck (about an hour away on the Cabot Trail) - check out the Herring Choker, a great little café & bakery. There is also the first brewery in Cape Breton there - the Big Spruce Brewing Company (beautiful spot). In Margaree (about a 30 minute drive) is a great cafe called the Dancing Goat (and across the street is a great local artisan shop called Two Macs) • Beaches are wonderful! If you walk from the house just down our dirt road (heading in the direction of Cheticamp) in a few minutes you will get to some large boulders on the left & here is a path down to the beach. It is a rocky beach - but the rocks are incredibly beautiful & often you will find you are the only one there. One of our favorite beaches is Margaree Harbour beach (about a 20 minute drive). There is also the Cheticamp Island Beach (just 5 or so minutes away). It is such a slow & simple place. Sunsets are beautiful from the porch. There are often bald eagles on the cliff in front of the house. There is a sweet little museum down at the harbor at the end of our road that teaches about the mi-careme (or mid-lent) festival celebrated in Cheticamp and by many Acadian communities. Le Trois Pignon is a cultural center in Cheticamp that has a wonderful display of hooked rugs & explains the history of hooking in the area. Enjoy & let me know if you have any questions.
