By the Sea: Contemporary Cottage by the Ocean – Nova Scotia, Canada
Romantic 1-bedroom, 1-bath cottage set on a bluff overlooking the ocean and Margaree Island in scenic Cape Breton. The cottage is designed with an eye to the Maritime. A vaulted 27-foot cathedral ceiling and two whole walls of windows give the cottage a spacious airy feel, as well as spectacular views and exposure to ocean breezes. The floor is made of 150-year-old pine, and the walls finished with traditional horizontal boards and fresh white paint.
The interior of the cottage is fully furnished and has a wood-burning stove and electric heating for cooler months. An outdoor deck is the perfect place to watch the whales that pass by from time to time.
The cottage is located within five minutes of a large beach. You can see fishers and lobster boats haul in their daily catch in front of the cottage, and buy their catch at nearby Margaree Harbor. The house is not visible from the road, ensuring total privacy. The area has plenty of natural amenities to enjoy, ranging from miles of biking trails, to fly fishing for salmon in the Margaree River, to exploring nearby Chimney Corner Beach and Cove. There are also lots of cultural activities and local celtic music to enjoy at restaurants, pubs and concerts.
