The Butterworths personally greeted us upon our arrival and welcomed us with a bottle of wine and a jar of homemade marmalade. We enjoyed staying in a well maintained, clean home with much history. The placement of the home on Cabot Trail enabled us to view the night sky from the deck and see the bay in the distance. Roger found the time to hike a portion of his property with us and he and Sandra were very accommodating. The kitchen is adequately stocked for meal preparation, but we enjoyed the Clucking Hen just a short walk down the road. Most of our time was spent exploring and hiking Cape Breton National Park. We found we were early in the season for the music festivals, but upon Sandra’s suggestion we did take Donelda’s Puffin Tour to the Bird Islands and highly recommend it.
