Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, outdoor shower, sleeps 6,

Located at Port Hood Beach, this bright, clean, well-appointed cottage has white walls, warm pine floors and pine cathedral ceiling. After enjoying a day spent in the warm waters of the sandy beach and a meal cooked on the grill, there is no place better to watch the sunset than from the deck that wraps around the front of the cottage. Long walks on the beach where eagles hover are good for both body and soul.

For golf lovers you are 25 minutes from the newly develop golf course in the town of Inverness, called Cabot Links.

'Thank you, we had a very enjoyable time at your cottage. We ate lobster fresh from the docks every day, cooked in your lovely kitchen.' Leslie & Maria Hansford

Absolutely perfect location if visiting Port Hood.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic visit to Port Hood N.S. The beach cottage was exactly as described. Perfect location. Everything needed was available at cottage. Had dinner one night at the Clove Hitch did some shopping at the Co-op supermarket.Got to see a 550 lb tuna landed at the Murphy Pond marina. We would highly recommend this property. Thanks Marty we enjoyed our visit.

Absolutely amazing

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely amazing, homey, peaceful, great views. The home was very well laid out for our family and had all the amenities one would need. Not in a high traffic area, quiet, and perfect views of sunsets every night overlooking the ocean. Could not have asked for anything better. Wife and I agree, we have to go back to this house.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Everything is just as you expect from the write up and pictures. Your just steps to the beach and beautiful views. Your an easy walk to some stores and eateries.

Very relaxing cottage feel. We will be recommending friends to this lovely cottage as it has lots of space for sleeping. All of Cape Breton is an easy travel from this home base. Thanks for having us!! Ali & Wes

Owner's Response: This cottage is a family cottage that has so many fine memories of my son and his cousins and my wife's family of sisters, brother ,nephews and nieces. When renters stay and they comment about the space, the closeness to the beach, wonderful view of the sunset, community of great neighbors and working people of Port Hood. One feels really good. Thanks!

A Slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage!! The personnal touches, the decor inside & out make this a special place. We were pleasantly surprised that there was no TV, this certainly added to the disconnect, and the re-connect to nature and each other.

The proximity to awesome scenery, great pubs and restaurants with ceileighs every night made this a vacation to remember. We hope to return...

Owner's Response: To visitors and family this cottage does speak to a place to relax and refocus. It has a breath of openness and warmth. From the cottage deck you can experience a sunset that leaves you breathless. Family and visitors have come to say that Cape Breton and especially Port Hood no matter how you cut it is their "Chunk of Heaven" or "Slice of Heaven" we all need.

Fresh fish is available daily at the nearby fisherman's co-op. A grocery store and a gourmet German restaurant are within walking distance. The Red Shoe Pub featuring Cape Breton fiddlers and good pub food is close by in the village of Mabou. If you can bear to leave the beach for a day, consider a trip around the Cabot Trail, to the Alexander Graham Bell Museum or to the Fortress of Louisbourg. Hike the spectacular Mabou Highlands or find your own perfect picnic spot on a secluded beach; the area is yours to enjoy.

In the town of Inverness 25 mile is a brand new state of the art golf course.
