Vacation Rental Property
Chez Edmond is located 500 meters off the world famous Cabot Trail at Grand Etang in the Acadian community of St Joseph du Moine, 15 kilometers from Cheticamp. It was completely renovated in 2003 and has all the modern amenities, yet retains it's old characteristics and charm.
It is a ''museum'' of the LeBlanc family; guests often comment that it reminds them of their grandmother's house. It is ideal for family reunions with plenty of open space for outdoor activities.
