What you will love about this home

Cute, quiet, private home located off the beaten track on six acres of forested land. A walk through the woods brings you to a tidal river with excellent swimming and paddling. An afternoon skinny dip awaits (if that's your thing). River amenities include a kayak, a paddleboard, life jackets, sun deck, lawn chairs and beach umbrella. There is also a wonky, old canoe that you are welcome to use. You can forage for mushrooms and berries when in season. The home is a one floor bungalow with only one step at the entrance. The main living space is open-concept, with three bedrooms (one is set up as an office with a pull-out couch/bed). Starlink internet provides fast, reliable service. Cell service exists at our home but can be spotty. The pergola-covered patio provides outdoor seating to enjoy in summer. Ceiling fans keep it cool, as does the coastal breeze. Dark skies year-round, perfect for stargazing. Beautiful outdoor landscaping in summer. In winter, the property is perfect for snowshoeing and cozy nights by the woodstove. Pets are welcome, but let us know in advance. We can discuss details when booking. Outdoor fenced-in dog run with insulated dog house built for 2 dogs. We work from home and would consider exchanging homes with pet-friendly people who have a decent internet connection. We are located on a dirt road, maintained year-round.

What you will love about this neighborhood

Quiet, peaceful, rural setting. If you want privacy, you'll find it here. The nearest town is a 15 minute drive where you'll find all the amenities you'll need, including groceries (Atlantic Superstore, Sobeys, Walmart), gas, and a recreation/sports complex. While in town enjoy some of the walking trails showcasing old growth forests in the area. Makes a great home base for exploring Cape Breton Island or just relaxing by the river. Short drive to the Bras d’Or lake (a UNESCO biosphere Reserve), St. Peter's (National Historic Site) and Isle Madame. Lots to explore locally, or take a day trip to the Highlands!
