Chimney Corner is located in the beautiful Margaree River region of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Situated on the Gulf of St.Lawrence, we provide twenty-five acres of woodland and private beach for those who wish to escape to peace and quiet.

Surrounding Area

Relaxing day trips from Chimney Corner could take you to the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, Alexander Graham Bell Museum, Fortress Louisbourg, Miners Museum, Highland Village, Gaelic College and home in time for evening tea. Boat tours, sand beaches, whale watching, canoeing, golfing, fishing (trout, salmon, deep sea), all are within a short drive.

Vacation Rental Property

The Chimney Corner cottage experience is good, old-fashioned Cape Breton hospitality where we welcome you to our property. We are traditional, not commercial. Our guests are family, not clients.

The goal of the cottages is privacy and tranquility while perched at the edge of fifty foot cliffs. The stressed-out and burnt-out can recharge, and the vacationer can just vegetate. Three-days in a cottage will give you a taste, but it takes a minimum of a week to savour Cape Breton.

Each cottage has an attached deck, as well as a private, cliffedge deck.

Sleeps & # of Bedrooms

We have three cottages: The Octagon, the Cliff, and the Studio. Each cottage has one bed and is designed to accommodate couples, not families. The Octagon cottage is large and spacious and is especially designed for wheelchair access. The Cliff and Studio cottages have full four-piece baths and the Octagon has a three-piece bath with a roll-in shower (no bathtub).

Services Offered

All cottages are full housekeeping units. We do not service
the cottages during your occupancy. We provide linens and
towels and will exchange them at your request. Free laundry
facilities are located on the property. Everything is provided for multi- night stays. You only need to provide your food, your favourite CDs, DVDs, and books. The first bottle of wine is with our compliments.

SPECIAL Cottage guests who rent for four or fewer nights have the option of enjoying a full, gourmet breakfast at the B&B at the rate of $25 per couple, per night.

Policies & Restrictions

We are a pet free property. Smoking is allowed outside on the decks.
Due to the high cliffs, large rocks at the base of the cliff, and unsupervised beach we prefer adult couples only. The terrain and potential hazards are not appropriate for small children.


Jan & Bob Wheeler  (View Profile)
We emigrated from upstate New York in 1964, the year we bought the "wilderness" in Chimney Corner. The first five years were spent in Halifax where Jan taught high school English and Bob completed his university education at Dalhousie. Weekends and summer vacations were spent at Chimney Corner, clearing land and pounding nails, and finally, after a period of twenty years, in 1989, the house was finished and we became permanent residents at our little cove. The B&B and cottages commenced in 1992 and we have not looked back. The B&B portion of the business was scaled back in 2008 and our efforts are primarily devoted to the cottages. The off-season is as busy as the summer, with choirs, quilting, knitting, construction, coaching, genealogy, local and provincial tourism committees, and winter catch-up reading. (VE1CYH)
