The Margaree, a world famous Salmon River, is a Canadian Heritage River. Our premise is close to the Cape Breton Island's "Fab Four" Golf Courses, the Alexander Graham Bell Museum, Fortress Louisberg, Highland villa
ge and all other Island attractions. Hiking, deep sea fishing, whale watching, fresh and ocean beaches are within minutes and the Highland National Park is an easy drive down the Margaree River "Intervale" and along the coast of the Gulf of St. Lawrence following the Cabot Trail, "Canada's most famous scenic drive!" Sea kayaking and sailing on Bras D'or are within an hours drive.
Vacation Rental Property
Formerly a Four Star B&B, with the addition of a full kitchen we have converted our property to a Guest house. We offer unique accommodations in secluded valley 2km off the Cabot Trail. This is a working Trout Farm, (Speckled and Rainbow) with a U-fish. A walk up our 'deer field' on our 'south' mountain gives a stupendous view of the Margaree Valley. Bald Eagles and Ospreys visit our ponds almost daily and the swallows and 'hummers' (hummingbirds), are always in residence.
The Guest House can accommodate up to 6 people or, if you don't mind sharing a kitchen, a couple can rent one room.
