Overview

Features: The Trailhead Guest cabin has a queen bed, large private deck, and hot outdoor shower overlooking a field of wildflowers, mountains, and the ocean. Large oceanfront property, organic garden, free-range chickens. BBQ, fire pit. Farm fresh breakfast is delivered fresh to your door.

$147 per night. Our peaceful oceanfront guest cottage is situated off the beaten path between the start of the 18 km Pollett’s Cove hiking trail and Gampo Abbey Buddhist Monastery in Pleasant Bay, Cape Breton. ?The Trailhead is perfect for the couple wanting to experience Pollett’s Cove – without lugging backpacks and camping gear.

?You don’t need to work that hard –  enjoy a comfortable sleep, an early farm-fresh breakfast delivered right to your door, take a hot outdoor shower overlooking the ocean and mountains, coffee it up, then hit the trail right from your cottage step.  After you hike, fix something simple to eat, have a campfire, watch the stars, sip a cool and refreshing beverage and enjoy another comfortable and cozy sleep.

It’s a fantastic experience. You’ll be staying on our 71-acre oceanfront property, and your guest cottage is tucked between our house and the ocean. Our accommodations are separate, but we are available to help make your stay in the area a wonderful and memorable experience.
