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 Chéticamp
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.

Great location in well appointed spaces
If you don't want to stay within the park, this is THE place to stay. It's convenient to the park and also to all services and restaurants available in Cheticamp. The kitchen is great, and the entire house is well appointed with nice decor and some of the owner's lovely artwork. You'll enjoy sitting on the porch and watching the ships come and go. I was somewhat apprehensive about booking this home due to concerns about noise from the ships, but it turned out to be no problem at all. Also--there's a full size washer & dryer. You'll love it all! We definitely appreciated the owner's hospitality as well.
Thank you so much for your review, It is always so nice to hear such good feedback. We hope to see you again someday.
All the best,
Sandra & Roland
Very thoughtful hosts, and a well cared for and updated home. We had a very comfortable stay, comfy beds and everything we needed. I hope we’ll be back.
Beautiful Property - Great Location!
We had a wonderful stay at this property! Clean, well-appointed, updated, and beautiful. Cabinets were well-stocked, linens were ample, and the house is very easy to navigate. I loved the location - on the water with quick and easy access to the park. The owners were very easy to work with and had warm banana bread, a bottle of wine, and coffee ready for us upon arrival. Truly a wonderful experience!
Thank you so much Corine for the wonderful compliments and hope you didn't mind spending a night without power. I guess there was a few power poles knocked down on the main street. The next day everything was back on track. You certainly lucked in on some good weather for November. So grateful you enjoyed your stay.
Perfect In Every Way
As soon as you walk in the door you know you made the right choice. The decor is refined modern and comfortable. Nothing has been missed by way of amenities. The space is spotless. The view is fascinating. The vibe is most welcoming with a banana loaf, bottle of wine and coffee beans in the coffee grinder ready for your first cup of java. And even though the property is right on the Cabot Trail it is quiet and peaceful. This property is perfect in every way!
Location was unique, was a little worried at first being right on top of a small marina but it turned out we all loved the location and enjoyed watching boats going in and out. Very comfortable furnishings. Loved the art work done by owner. Would recommend highly to others
This is a beautiful rental with the perfect location for exploring Cape Breton Highlands. Great views overlooking the harbor. Kitchen equipped with everything you need.
