Ask for clues for treasure holes!!

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

Excellent

The most restful part of N.S/Cape Breton is your cove. To boot, the hospitality and service were excellent - Paul, Barbara, Jackie and Mackenzie were unfailingly thoughtful. And hats off to our Australian chef.

...A Magical Time.

  • Submitted: Oct 9, 2010
  • Stayed: Oct 2010
We stayed at the farmhouse. Intimate, cozy, and perfect for a family. People went for a fun walk down to ocean view- even saw a seal! Talked about the view all day. A perfect jump-off point to Sydney, Louisburg, and the Cabot Trail! We had a magical time.
