Off the beaten path , our quiet, centrally
located Bed and Breakfast is the perfect place to stay while you explore the
beauty of Cape Breton. Our farm, 100 acres of pasture, meadow and woods, is
nestled in the Bras d’Or Lake Biosphere Reserve – a region that was designated
by UNESCO in 2011 for its unique history and promotion of sustainable life
styles.

 

Located in Kempt Head, 22 kilometres off
the Trans Canada Highway 105, our farm boats a stunning view of the beautiful
Bras d’Or Lake (our inland sea), the Barra Strait and Iona, Beinn Bhreagh (the
final resting place of Alexander Graham Bell), and Baddeck (gateway to the
world-famous Cabot Trail).

 

Relax and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of
our Bed and Breakfast while you take in the fabulous sunsets. Meet the
livestock – we have horses, llamas, sheep and a variety of rare-breed chickens
and turkeys. If you’re feeling a bit more energetic, you can hop on a bicycle
and explore the neighbourhood or wander one of our trails. We invite you to
join us in the evening for conversation and tea (or your own stronger brew).

 

We offer two cozy rooms on the upper floor
that have queen-size  beds and share a
4-piece bathroom. The Eagle Room overlooks the farm and the Whale Room has an
amazing view of the Bras d’Or Lake. The communal sitting room, TV room and
eat-in kitchen are on the main floor.

 

We are approximately 25 minutes to the
Englishtown Ferry, 30 minutes to the Gaelic College, 40 minutes to the
Newfoundland Ferries, 45 minutes to Sydney, 45 minutes to Baddeck, and 90
minutes to the Fortress of Louisbourg.

 

We admit it, it’s a bit of a drive to get
here, but we think it’s worth it and we’re pretty sure you will too!
