Vacation Home - 4 bedroom, 2 bath on Margaree Harbour
Happily married couple with a deep love for Cape Breton. Over 42 years ago we went on a date in Margaree Harbour and have loved the community ever since. We met at Mount Allison University in the winter of 1975 and currently live in Wolfville NS. Because of work commitments we reside in Wolfville NS and visit Margaree Harbour as often as possible. In 2013 we were fortunate to find the ideal location for our dream home in our beloved Margaree Harbour! The peaceful surroundings, natural beauty, wonderful neighbors, majestic mountains and the sand at Margaree Harbour beach creates a magnetic drawing force we find impossible to resist. Kevin grew up in Cape Breton and his parents retired in the Margaree Valley. Cathy grew up in Shubenacadie NS and has been an honorary Caper in her heart for the past 40 years.

Why Owner chose Margaree Harbour
Cathy and I discovered this piece of heaven called Margaree Harbour over 42 years ago. We were a young couple dating and planning for our married life to begin. As luck would have it, we both agree Margaree Harbour is a unique community that makes us more relaxed. When we visit Margaree Harbour we are more at peace and always feel recharged after a few days in this restful community. We will be regulars at Cabot Bhreagh with our family and friends in tow. Hiking the highlands, cycling the quiet country roads and trails with a big smile is how we plan to spend our next 30 years in CB!! Drop by and say hello. Kevin and Cathy
What makes this House unique
Why we fell in love with Margaree Harbour and Cabot Bhreagh? To find out, I would suggest you take a bike ride or walk on a warm sunny day down the Margaree Harbour Village road, round the turn and past Laurence's General Store/Post office and the two light houses and climb up over the dunes onto the lovely pristine sandy cove of Margaree Harbour beach. It is natural gem and very serene as the waves lap the shore. The sun makes the waves sparkle like diamonds and the water is surprisingly warm (Gulf Stream affect). You will start to feel what we feel about this quaint community. Sit and absorb this lovely cove listening to the ocean's waves crashing and to the sea birds singing. Smell the wild roses and tall grasses as they sway in the constant breeze. The feelings of overwhelming beauty, peace and grace changes the pattern of our minds. We feel, think and act differently after a short course of Margaree Harbour "Therapy". On your walk back up the road stop in to say hello to Fletcher Laurence, third generation proprietor of the general store which was started by his grandfather in the 1880s. Take the time to hear a few stories about life in Margaree Harbour. We guarantee it will be well worth the time. As you come to the United Church look left and Cabot Bhreagh is sitting in the field near the water's edge. We planned and built this home over the past 3 years with the one guiding principle in mind; make this home the ideal place for families and friends to come, gather and have at least of a few days of Margaree Harbour "Therapy". We feel in our hearts that anyone who has this opportunity will never forget this remarkable part of Cape Breton Island. Long after your trip to Cabot Bhreagh we know the effect from the beauty and peacefulness of this place will resonate in your hearts and minds as it does for us. Life is lovely at the harbour.

Excellent Luxurious Home Away from Home
The views were spectacular. The home itself had everything you could want or need for your vacation. A large and comfy house to accomodate a large family. Located close to ammenities and beaches, Cabot Trail. Outdoor seating and propane fireplace to enjoy the lovely evenings on the water.
Thank you Kim for your positive comments of Cabot Bhreagh. We enjoyed our conversations with you and how respectfully you cared for our precious vacation retreat. We know your visits to the island to visit family are important. So glad that we could play a role in this years visit.
When you make future plans, as you mentioned you would be doing on one of our calls, to visit Cape Breton, we would happily welcome you and your family to stay with us at Cabot Bhreagh.

Fall perfection in Margaree Harbour!
What a wonderful stay we had at Cabot Bhreagh! The house is lovely, clean and spacious with a beautiful view across the water. We came in October for the fishing, fall colors, hiking and music. The house is in a great location for them all plus the bonus of a lovely little beach just a short walk down the road. Kevin went out of his way to help us with spot on suggestions for hikes, restaurants and travel logistics plus was kind enough to introduce us to a neighbor with all the salmon fishing expertise. What a treat! Thank you Kevin and Cathy for sharing such a special place with us.
Many thanks Carol, Tom, Max and Michael for your very lovely review of Cabot Bhreagh.
Cape Breton has so much to offer all visitors seeking invigorating outdoor activities, delicious food and a relaxing pause in a busy life.

This house, this location were just perfect. Kevin and Cathy were incredible communicators and made sure our stay was executed just as we'd like. If you're looking for a great home, with a phenomenal view, with plenty of room to relax...this is it!
The house is incredibly beautiful and the location is perfect. The view, the horses, the beach, the general store, the sunrises and sunsets. Great for the soul! The beds are so comfy, there is everything you need in the house. Loved the covered porch and the other uncovered deck, chairs and fire pit. Highly recommend.
Thank you Jacqueline for the kind, positive comments about your experience at Cabot Bhreagh. We had the idea to build this “family orientated” vacation home in Margaree Harbour for most of the attributes you mentioned. This beautiful, serene community is indeed, good for the soul. The wonderful neighbors we have in MH make the picture complete in our opinion. Humbly we thank you Jacqueline for this encouraging review. Kevin and Cathy
Cabot Bhreagh is a beautiful home situated steps from the Margaree River. The home is lovely inside, leather furniture in the living room, a modern, spacious and well-equipped kitchen. Everything has been thought of at this property to make one's stay memorable -- the fire pit outside, the deck chairs and outside dining table, a hammock, a selection of outdoor games such as frisbee, bocce ball, baseball equipment. The view is stunning, there's a beautiful beach 500 metres from the house, and the location is within a half hour drive of Cheticamp and Cape Breton National Park. Kevin and Cathy also provide a great deal of local information regarding things to do and see in the Margaree area. We had a wonderful time.
Thank you Al and Colette for your enthusiastic review. Cathy and I were very happy to read about your experience vacationing at Cabot Bhreagh. You were perfect visitors in every respect, right down to Al doing a little handy work on the shower! We would welcome your family back to Cabot Bhreagh anytime in the future years. Colette, Cathy enjoyed your book of short stories. She is an English major and was most impressed by your writing style & skill. Sincerely, Kevin and Cathy
