Dr. Paul and Barbara are the owners and hosts at the Breton Cove Farmhouse.

The location appealed to us because it's 60 acres along the Atlantic and 120 acres in the Cape Breton Highlands.

When we found the farmhouse, we were told to bury it or burn it and rebuilt on site. Dr. Paul choose a third alternative, to renovate with local spruce and hemlock and imported douglass fir beams...

I

n 2000, we renovated the farmhouse which was a 19th century homestead.working farm which had horses, chickens, pigs and huge gardens and a sawmill..

Dr. Paul walked the land re-created trails that the Urquehardt family.

The house had been a place where midwives delivered babies and there wee many adopted children.

It has since become a spot for travelers who enjoy hiking, swimming, boating, cultural activities such as music in the Gaelic Singers hall across the road

The Breton Cove Hideaway is on the Cabot Trail. You'll find us the right side of the road as you head north towards Ingonish, 23k north of the Englishtown ferry, on the Atlantic coast of Cape Breton. Opposite us is the Gaelic Singers Hall and Community center, with a ballfield, dugouts and a field suitable for soccer, frisbee, baseball...

You can explore mountain trails, beautiful fields, and a gentle sloping forest leading down to a small pond and also to a beach on the Atlantic. You can walk south from beach to beach, finding sandy and rocky beaches and the famous Black Rock (Skir Dhu in Gaelic), where one time fishing boats were tied.
