About the Property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 8

Structure has energy efficient ICF foam/concrete walls,natural cedar shingles weathered from sea air,Post+beam enterior. 1 minute off legendary Cabot Trail. With lots of activities for kids, the family can enjoy a wonderful beach getaway . We're just minutes from the heritage rich Acadian village of Cheticamp, where the family can learn a little bit about Acadian culture. You can walk out the front door & across the field onto the beach, it’s a stone beach directly in front of the cottage, but approx. 400 meters down the beach it changes to a beautiful sandy beach that is very child safe and has a family-friendly atmosphere.


Owner Description: : Jyl and I live in Margaree Valley on my family's homestead property. We have 7 children, from 22 right down to 2. I drive a school bus and own a small well drilling company, Jyl is a physiotherapist.

Why the Owner Chose Cheticamp: : It started as a beach house for the family ,we all enjoy the ocean . The location was perfect because it was only 1/2 hour from our home in Margaree and close to Jyl's work.

The Unique Benefits of this Cottage: : Our cottage is located on a strip of land on the beach,with magnificent sunsets and island views toward the front ,with Cheticamp harbour, full of birds and plants with a mountain back drop to the rear. The site offers a panoramic view of the ocean,island,harbour,wild life and mountains. We're one minute off the Cabot Trail and five minutes to Cheticamp with the Cape Breton Highlands National Park about 10 minutes away.
