Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 8

The cottage has energy efficient ICF foam/concrete walls and natural cedar shingles weathered from sea air that encompass a gorgeous post+beam interior. Being 1 minute off legendary Cabot Trail- there are lots of activities for kids, and families and couples alike can enjoy a wonderful beach getaway. You can walk out the front door & across the field straight onto the beach. Directly in front of the cottage is a stone beach- very peaceful, private and perfect for campfires. Approximately 400 meters down the beach however, it changes to a beautiful sandy beach that is child safe and has a family-friendly atmosphere- perfect for swimming and sandcastles. We are also just minutes away from the heritage rich Acadian village of Cheticamp where the family can learn a little bit about Acadian culture and each great food at some local restaurants.

Owner Description: Jyl and I live in Margaree Valley on my family's homestead property. We have 9 children, from 27 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 and 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.

Modern, bright, and super clean cottage located on a beautiful lot by the sea. Fantastic sunsets right outside your back door. Well-equipped kitchen, spacious bathroom with heated floor, and 2 very large bedrooms on second floor. Located just off the Cabot trail and close to Cape Breton Highlands National Park.

Fantastic stay in this wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a week long stay is the wonderful home with a picture perfect location. The home is a short walk to the beach with the town of Cheticamp only 5 minutes away and the Cabot Trail only 5 minutes from the town. The home is open and spacious with 2 nice bedrooms on the second floor. Kitchen is well appointed and so wonderful to have the large " garage door " to open up to the wonderful landscape surrounding the home. Loved our stay and would give this home a 2 thumbs up.

Amazing place!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this beautiful home was absolutely magical. We built a fire on the beach, went swimming, collected sea glass, took walks on the beach, drank our morning coffee with the windows/door open, our kids played games and my husband and I just relaxed. I truly wish we had more time here, three days wasn't even close to long enough. If you are looking for the PERFECT place to relax and enjoy life, this house is it. Thank you, John, for sharing your beautiful home!!!!
