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.
