Seaweed and Sod Farm
Ciad Mile Failte! 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 100-acre organic farm is located 22 km up the Kempt Head Road smack dab in the middle of magnificent nowhere! We have stunning views of the Bras d’Or Lake and the Cape Breton Highlands. Our sunsets are spectacular!
We are approximately 25 minutes to the Englishtown Ferry (gateway to the world famous Cabot Trail), 30 minutes to the Gaelic College, 40 minutes to the Newfoundland Ferries, 40 minutes to Baddeck, 45 minutes to Sydney and 90 minutes to the Fortress of Louisbourg. Just up the road is our Ross Ferry Marine Park where there is a boat launch, picnic area, playground equipment, a walking trail and a small swimming area. Every Sunday during the summer there are hot dogs and french fries for sale (with all the proceeds going towards the community run park).
Our accommodations include two bedrooms and shared bath on the upper floor with the communal sitting room, TV room and kitchen/dining area on the main floor.
Your comfort is our top priority. The Eagle Room has a queen bed and overlooks the farm. The Whale Room has a queen bed and has a view of the lake. Each room has its own thermostat and ceiling fan. Bathrobes and slippers are provided for your comfort and convenience. The shared 4-piece bath has extra towels and a hair dryer. There is a computer available as well as board games, books and a fairly extensive DVD movie collection.
Breakfast will be served in the kitchen or you may choose to dine in the sitting room and enjoy the view of the lake or sit outside on the side porch and take in the sights and sounds of our farm.
Our small organic farm is home to llamas, Cotswold sheep, a Percheron team, rare breed and heritage chickens and turkeys, ducks and the requisite dogs and cats. Farm tours are available ($15/family).
Directions: Take exit #13 off the Trans Canada Hwy 105. We are 22 km up the road on the left hand side. Don’t follow your GPS as it may be unreliable in this area.
Although it is a lovely drive up the Kempt Head Road to our farm, if you are arriving in the evening you will want to ensure that you have eaten your supper before arrival.
Payment is Cash or e-mail money transfer. Cheques will be accepted for reservations only.
