For the past decade, each summer our family has eagerly returned to the Ross House. Located in a spectacularly beautiful setting overlooking the sea (whales frequently traverse your view), the Ross House was originally a farmhouse and although it has been stylishly redecorated and a front deck added, it retains a homey and comfortable feel. We make great use of the well stocked kitchen and deck grill, most often dinning on the deck, our central course made from the local shellfish, salmon, cod and oysters we purchase at markets at Margaree Habour and Cheticamp. Nearby are a series of beaches, several quite wonderful, where various of us spend hours swimming and such, and not much farther away are the awesome Highlands, where we hike and picnic. Also each summer we make sure to search out local venues featuring the great Celtic music of the area’s fiddlers.
