    Live like a local in one of these homes away from home. Gather together on a 150-acre award-winning estate. Walk from cottage to green. Watch fishing boats pass by your harbourside patio. Enjoy the stunning views of Cape Breton’s west coast with a beachside cottage overlooking the ocean or enjoy a brand-new villa, located just outside the quaint, seaside town of Inverness. These cottages allow you settle in and get a taste of Cape Breton living!
