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.

Wonderful Holiday Spot

  • Submitted: Mar 1, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2012
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. Town of Louisbourg is very pretty take the side trip to the lighthouse. Keep pets and kids in the car !! cliffs are unforgiving- waves are awesome beaches everywhere EXPLORE!!
