There is a lovely sandy beach sometimes rocky spots depending on the years tidal action, just a 5 to 10 min walk (down a path, across a dirt road and down a driveway). For those who have trouble walking you can drive. There is a fire tub on the beach so you can collect wood along the beach and have a fire if you desire (of course weather permitting ). Very private and secluded. Pets are welcome (we charge a pet fee).
We also have two other properties with potential availability in the same area that could be booked if there is a gathering of families.
Restaurants and grocery store: There are a few restaurants close by. The cottage is approximately a 15 min drive down a dirt road (good condition) to the Trans Canada Highway. There are two good restaurants 10 min from the TransCanada Highway.

Wonderful holiday spot. Molly (dog) and Noofer (dog) loved the yard and the sniffies.
We loved the cottage and C.B.!
We planned off-season for the peace and quiet. Weather was perfect.Couple days of rain to ensure we took a home day. Brilliant sun and warm the rest of the time. Colours were intense a must-get-in Pie from the Jam market just before north sydney. Also Bread and Buns on the cabot trail. The dancing moose cafe has some home made goodies, a nice cat and incredible views.Meat Cove and Bay St. Lawrence are worth the trip. Gorgeous!
Inverness Beach one of the best in the world. Egypt Falls ( barely on the map) by upper mar agree is a vertical climb for the very fit. Glenora Distillery pour your own single malt from a cask.
