Cape Breton Island has been voted by Travel & Leisure Magazine as one of the best islands in the world! We certainly think so. Our farmhouse on 56 acres is a 5 minute drive from Cabot Links, recently touted as the best golf course in Canada (and 82nd best in the world). We are on one of the most scenic roads in the area, wonderful for biking and long walks. The house is bright and airy, and has been redone (with a newly remodeled kitchen suitable for foodies) to maintain the charm of a 100 year old farmhouse, but with high-speed wireless internet! There are spectacular water or mountain views from each room. The beach on the property is a stroll across the fields, and the 3 mile long Inverness public beach, considered one of the most beautiful in the North Atlantic and known for its plaster rock cliffs, is a 5 minute drive. Water temperature is in the low 70s (20s) in midsummer and is comfortable for swimming. An hour from Cape Breton Highlands National Park, there is also salmon fishing in the nearby Margaree River and hiking and walking trails within 10 minutes.
