Enjoy accessible seclusion in a cottage with a beautiful Maskell's Harbour view and a small boat beaching area. Launch your kayak or canoe in the creek below the road and make your way through the alders into the salt marsh and then on into the harbour. There are good hiking/ cross country skiing trails up the hill behind the cottage. Maskell's Harbour is on the Gillis Point - Washabuck Road five miles east of Iona and the Highland Village and about an hour's drive from Baddeck, Sydney or Port Hawkesbury. The cottage is recently renovated, comfortable and full of natural light.
