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
The most comfortable of all our NS rentals!
This property is fully equipped for cooking with a seafood store and grocer right in town. Every detail is covered in the kitchen. The beds are comfy and the living space beautifully appointed. The deck spaces were a treat. This is an outstanding property. From this great location we toured Cape Breton, fly fished, and enjoyed fiddling at the local pubs.
We cannot imagine a more perfect way to spend several nights in Cheticamp.
We found this place to be ideal for our needs and desires while visiting Cape Breton. The house itself is beautifully designed, comfortable and very clean. Somehow this place manages to be relaxing and peaceful and still have lots going on right nearby. The open space is very friendly and user friendly, especially the deck which overlooks the marina and affords you many hours of sunsets and watching boats go in and out. It's a quick walk to great dining and music, and the drive into Cape Breton Highlands National Park is short and scenic. And the hosts, Sandra and Roland are charming, warm and very knowledgable about the area. We had four adults in our group, which was a nice fit. We cooked our breakfasts there, and we found numerous fun places for lunches and dinners, ranging from a one-minute walk to a 20-minute drive.
Thank you so much for your great review! I am so glad you enjoyed your stay, Roland and I always work hard to make sure our guests have everything they need. It's been great meeting you hope to see you again someday.
All the best,
Sandra & Roland
Beautiful, serene location.
Spotlessly clean with all the basics you need for cooking. Zero complaints. Hosts were super friendly. Location was dreamy.
Lovely harbor views, a tasteful and well-appointed home, great location and warm hosts
What a wonderful place to stay! Sandra and Roland are perfect hosts. They were very warm and welcoming, available for anything we needed, but respectful of our privacy. The property is lovelly! It’s perfectly located in the center of Cheticamp, overlooking a working harbor, with breezes from the Gulf, and within walking distance of at least five restaurants. The two upstairs bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, tastefully decorated with excellwnt beds and nice linens. The bathroom and shower upstairs are modern and spacious. The top floor deck has lovely views. On the main floor (which actually is up a short set of stairs from the private parking place) are a very nice living room, dining room, kitchen, and half-bath/laundry. The kitchen was modern and beautifully stocked, the living area was comfortably furnished, and the washer and dryer were nice to have after days spent hiking and swimming. The deck on the main floor also had fine harbor views and was a great place for morning coffee and evening relaxation. We wished we could have stayed longer!
Thank you so much! Roland and I really appreciate your review. It makes us happy to know you enjoyed our home. You and Dee left the house in great shape wouldn't mind having you stay again.
All the best,
Sandra & Roland
