We're just minutes from the heritage rich Acadian village of Cheticamp, where the family can learn a little bit about Acadian culture. You can walk out the front door & across the field onto the beach, it’s a stone beach directly in front of the cottage, but approx. 400 meters down the beach it changes to a beautiful sandy beach that is very child safe and has a family-friendly atmosphere.

Owner Description: : Jyl and I live in Margaree Valley on my family's homestead property. We have 7 children, from 22 right down to 2. I drive a school bus and own a small well drilling company, Jyl is a physiotherapist.

Why the Owner Chose Cheticamp: : It started as a beach house for the family ,we all enjoy the ocean . The location was perfect because it was only 1/2 hour from our home in Margaree and close to Jyl's work.

The Unique Benefits of this Cottage: : Our cottage is located on a strip of land on the beach,with magnificent sunsets and island views toward the front ,with Cheticamp harbour, full of birds and plants with a mountain back drop to the rear. The site offers a panoramic view of the ocean,island,harbour,wild life and mountains. We're one minute off the Cabot Trail and five minutes to Cheticamp with the Cape Breton Highlands National Park about 10 minutes away.

Great place and location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed the cabin and the incredible views! The proximity to the park was perfect for day hikes in the park and exploring the Cabot Trail. The cabin was very clean and well stocked and the overhead door made for a nice touch. It's a beautiful part of the world that we hadn't seen before but we hope to make it back some day!

Great view & so peaceful

  • 5 of 5

If you want a great place to relax and enjoy the sound of the waves, watching the eagles, the family of fox that visit each day, this is the place for you. It is also at the edge of the Cape Breton National Park, where there are many hiking trails that you can enjoy each day. We recommend that if you are going to hike each day, buy your pass for that day only. There is not discount for a multiple day pass.

As for the house, it has all the amenities that you need to enjoy your stay, a great view of the mountains, and the beach. The owner is very personable and will take care of any requests that you might have. Beds are comfortable, plenty of books to read and games to play.

Minimalist beauty and many windows bring the landscape, sea and sky indoors.

Fabulous location!

  • 4 of 5

A really neat house with a well furnished kitchen. It's a little inconvenient having the only bathroom on the first floor and the bedrooms on the second. That is more than made up for by the location. The sunsets were fantastic. The town has some good places to eat and proximity to the NP was wonderful.

Cape Breton cottage

  • 4 of 5

Overall the property was enjoyable and perfect for what we wanted. It was clean and well-equipped and the garage door made it breezy and comfortable. The kitchen is well- stocked and the bathroom roomy and functional. The view of the ocean is great and it is a quick drive through Cheticamp to the national park. Because the bath is down a set of metal somewhat steep stairs from the bedrooms, if you are at all unsteady, older or a frequent nighttime visitor to the bathroom, this could be an issue. The window treatments in the bedroom let in light at the crack of dawn so if you are light sensitive I would recommend eyeshields to sleep with. Even with the windows cracked and the fan going, it is stuffy upstairs in the summer at night and we slept much better once we found the little fan under the sink in the kitchen - obviously no AC in NS. I would definitely recommend this place to those who don't mind the bathroom situation.

Incredibly beautiful home! Perfect location, wonderful design, everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

The carmichaels are wonderful to share this impeccable home with us! My children had to actually say "goodbye" to the house because we loved it so much! Private rocky beach (sandy beach a stones throw), sunsets, cheticamp is a wonderful village - we didn't even have time to do everything there as we explored the whole island. Owners are easy and very kind. A million stars at night, a eagle family to enjoy your morning coffee with! The ocean breeze and sound of waves to sleep. It honestly is a magical place we hope to come back soon.
