The Margaree Farmhouse is in a peaceful, quite place. The area allows you to explore the beauty and wonder of Cape Breton Island. Most entertainment is a short drive. The towns of Inverness and Cheticamp have lots of restaurants, shops, museums, antique shops, historical interests, beaches, trails, fishing, banks, craft shops, grocery stores and pharmacies.
A day trip to The Fortress of Louisburg, the Gaelic College, The Cabot Trail, and Golf courses are something to put on your to do list. Also, a trip to Baddeck is a must, where you will find... Shopping, Lobster dinners, and of course a visit to the Alexander Graham Bell museum. Head over to the village of Mabou, where the Celtic music will be heard and dining at the Red Shoe pub isn't to be missed.
