About Roland & Sandra Chiasson

Sandra & I are true Acadians born and raised in the beautiful village of Cheticamp. We travelled all over the world while serving the Canadian Armed Forces. We returned to live in Cheticamp 20 years ago. We enjoy golfing, hiking, the beaches, the amazing ocean and mountain views and most of all, we love the area because it's home.

Roland & Sandra Chiasson purchased this house in 1997

Why Roland & Sandra Chiasson chose Cape Breton Island

This harbour property use to be a small general store in the 1930's owned by my mother-in-law's uncle. It was owned by many owners until we returned and had a vision of living on the waterfront. Our dream of creating a harbour escape has become a reality and we hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

What makes this house unique

The benefits of staying at "Harbour Escape" is that it's comfortable, you will find peace, serenity, it is private, has a porch swing, table and chairs on top and lower deck. Your very own BBQ, fantastic views of colorful fishing boats coming and going and the many amazing sunsets. You are at walking distance to restaurants, pubs, whale watching, bank, pharmacy and 18 hole golf course. This is the only harbour vacation home on the waterfront.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is one of the best houses we have ever rented. It's location to the docks, decks, sunsets, restaurants and peacefulness. We hiked throughout the park, enjoyed the Celtic Colours music & dinners. You have provided everything required for a comfortable stay. We will recommend your house to our friends.

Paradise by the Water

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the "Harbour Escape." It definitely was a bit of paradise. The description of the location and layout. The house was beautifully decorated, very clean and had everything we needed to make our stay very enjoyable. The view was stunning especially for prairie dwellers and guests from Paris. It was refreshing to see the boats just outside of our accommodation.

Sandra and Roland were available to answer any of our questions and were very friendly. We would defer commend this "bit of Paradise" to everyone. It is definitely a must in Cape Breton.

Cozy, comfortable, private cottage on the harbour

We spent four nights here with another comfortable and enjoyed exploring the area, looking out at the small harbour and the cute boats. The house was very clean, comfortable, quiet, nicely decorated and quiet. Great location for exploring Cape Breton park and doing some of the hikes.
