Property description

Big Harbour Hideaway is a private home nestled atop two acres of land with stunning views of the Bras D'or Lakes with its own generous private beach and dock. Spend your days relaxing on the beach or take a few hours and explore the area in the double kayak. Watch the sun rise and set from the screened-in covered porch off the deck or from the master bedroom's deck overlooking the lakes. Enjoy your meals in the open concept main living area of the house with a panoramic view of the Bras D'or Lakes. If you feel the need to leave nature's paradise you are just a fifteen minute drive from Baddeck's amenities, shops, bakeries, cafes, and Farmers' Market. If golf is on your itinerary, Bell Bay Golf Club is equally as close. Big Harbour Hideaway is fully equipped with indoor and outdoor dining tables, three comfortable bedrooms, two private baths, full kitchen, and laundry. The living spaces are bright, well furnished, and leave no view obstructed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: Our family are Cape Bretoners. My brother and I grew up in a nearby town and were fortunate to be able to spend our summers with our parents on this area of the Bras D'or Lakes. We live away from Cape Breton with our own families now but come back to our Cape Breton family home to relive memories, make new ones, and enjoy the slice of heaven which is Big Harbour.

Why the Owner Chose Victoria, Subd. B, NS, Canada:
Our parents retired to this home twenty-five years ago. Sadly, they are no longer with us to enjoy the beauty and the surroundings that this area of Cape Breton offers. This home will remain in our family for generations and we are happy to share it with tourists and fellow Cape Bretoners who appreciate nature and the beauty it has blessed Cape Breton with.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you live in a city or just a busy town, the absolute peace and quiet that this location offers may be its biggest asset to you. The sounds of the wind, waves and wildlife is all that you will hear and the shear beauty of the landscape and the moonlit sky at night is what you will remember the most.
