Overview

We are a fun-loving family who enjoys our home and love to share it with others and have them feel like they are at home. I grew up on Cape Breton Island and love the history, culture, music, and landscapes it has to share. We love to help others have an experience of a lifetime when they come here to visit. Having the experience is getting that rest and relaxation before the next adventure and helping guests seek out an experience on the island that intrigues them.

Come immerse yourself in Cape Breton hospitality! This modern country-style Home is located next to the City of Sydney, NS. You are 10 minutes from the downtown district. We are centrally located to events and tourist attractions on the island. i.e., Fortress of Louisburg, Alexander Graham Bell Museum, Cabot Trail, Miners Museum, Centre200, Membertou Convention Centre, etc.  Included in your stay is a hearty breakfast and a complimentary beverage each night, with numerous amenities.
