North River Bridge Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1bedroom, double futon in lounge, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

The Cabot Trail's most spectacular pebble beach is yours at Wreck Cove on the east coast of Cape Breton Island. There are 75 acres of ocean front, including the beach pictured here, and mountain wilderness to explore on natural hiking trails every season of the year. We also invite you to swim in the spring-fed pond and savour the produce from the vegetable and flower gardens in season.

Our 6-year-old building offers a beautiful lodging with one separate bedroom with queen-sized bed, a double futon in the lounge, a complete kitchen and dining area, and a full bath with laundry facilities. The accommodation is furnished with care and attention to detail to accommodate 4 in comfort and privacy.

We also offer the use of a games room in a separate building with a ping-pong table, professional pool table, darts and foosball.

We really enjoyed our stay here and your hospitality. You have a beautiful property and are lucky to live in such a wonderful surroundings.

It was great cozy cottage with good size bedroom. great trails for outdoor lovers good for snow shoeing in the winter and hiking in the summer close to Ingonish and Cape Breton highlands park. with great cross country skiing. nice views of the ocean and the highlands with private trails leading through the hills. .

Le Cap Breton a son meilleur !

  • 5 of 5

Nous cherchions la tranquillité et l'avons trouvé à Wreck Cove!

Le studio est très confortable et nous a permis de rayonner partout au Cap Breton pour vivre un maximum d'expériences «Nature» . Nous avons découvert l'hospitalité et l'authenticité des gens du Cap. La propriétaire a été d'une générosité extraordinaire. Nous avons même trouvé une belle tarte aux pommes tiède à notre arrivée au studio. Merci Jitka!

Jitka offers a lovely locale here at Wreck Cove along the eastern shore of the glorious Cabot Trail. We stayed in the very private loft above her pottery studio and enjoyed day excursions to various points along the trail from there--including beach excursions and picturesque hiking in the Highlands (Middle Head at Keltic Lodge)...Jitka's charming horse, goat, and 2 dogs were a delight as well...

A delight

  • 5 of 5

Jitka is a charming host and the small cottage in which we stayed was wonderfully equipped, and very comfortable. Bonuses include farm fresh eggs from Jitka's hens, and greens from her gardens. We spend a week there happily exploring trails along the East side of Cape Breton, including some that start next to the cottage and wind upwards. Everything was clean and worked, and we hope to come back for another week in the future. The cost was about half of we we later paid at a grossly inferior spot in Cheticamp...but that's a different review

Deux couples à la ferme

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines en Nouvelle-Écosse. Notre dernière semaine passée à Singing Pebbles a été un plus indéniable pour notre vacance. Le charme rustique de l'endroit et l'atmosphère de vie à la campagne. Lily, la jument, Gadget, la chèvre, et les poules ont agrémenté notre séjour. Et notre hôtesse, Jitka, a été d'une gentillesse et d'une générosité hors du commun. Nous nous sommes senti chez nous, accueillis par plein de petits détails dans un lieu chaleureux et propre. Une vue magnifique, le temps au ralenti et la possibilité de nous rendre dans le parc des Hautes terres du Cap Breton pour faire des randonnées.

Merci pour ce temps de magie en nature...

Wreck Cove is at the centre of Cape Breton's premier attractions, minutes to Highlands National Park with its fabulous sand beaches, hiking trails and stunning rocky shores. It is close to kayak rentals, whale watching, sailing adventures, 2 world class golf courses, the Gaelic College, and fine restaurants in Ingonish and the village of Baddeck. We are also an easy day-trip from other attractions on the island such as the Fortress of Louisburg.

The fall in by the sea is long and beautiful, bask in the warm autumn sun of Cape Breton and marvel at the magnificent colours along the Cabot Trail. Also, during the week of October 8-16th enjoy the music and fun of the Celtic Colours International Festival that draws Celtic musicians from all over the world.

In the winter snowshoe and cross country ski right out the cottage door along kilometres of gorgeous trails or down-hill ski where the eagles fly at Ski Cape Smokey just 20 minutes away.

Other Activities: sea kayaking, whale watching, hiking, games room with pool table, ping-pong, darts and foose ball
