Description of the Ingonish vacation home rental
Your kind of place?

The Breton Cove Farmhouse, on the Cabot Trail, is an excellent spot for family and friend reunions, couples' getaways and lots of room for a big family or even groups of colleagues or folks passionate about hiking, birding, golfing, or having a home base for exploring Cape Breton Island.

Inside and outside:

Four bedrooms, two full baths, full kitchen, large living room and dining room, it has the rustic comfort of historic Cape Breton, with ready access to the Cape Breton Highlands Park, Highland Links Golf and the Cabot Trail.

Outside is a deck with bbq and fire site for campfires. Inside there is a warm fireplace/wood stove in the living room, wood supplied.

On the property are hiking trails, with a trail through a spruce and birch forest leading a safe cliff walk overlooking the Atlantic. From there or a spruce bench lookout, you can occasionally see seals, dolphins and even whales. More likely, during our season from May through October, you'll see lobster traps along the coast, Skir Dhu (a huge "black rock" off the coast where fisherman used to tie up. In season you'll see lobster-fishing boats, the Newfoundland Ferry, eagles and seabirds racing up the Cape Breton coast. and beaches

Links are available on the history of this Breton Cove Farmhouse as well as the Cape Breton lobster fishing videos as you'll see at end of listing

The farmhouse is sister property to Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort which is 8 miles or 12.5km south on the Cabot Trail at Indian Brook, where you'll find a Bistro, canoe and kayak rentals and nature sanctuary, to which you are invited.
Area Information
Local Highlights Surrounding The Breton Cove Farmhouse

The Breton Cove Farmhouse sits right on the Cabot Trail, voted one of the world's best drives according to National Georgraphic.

Along the Cabot Trail, not far from the Breton Cove Farmhouse is world class hiking in the Cape Breton Highlands. A Trail right across the Cabot Trail features a hike through a forest with a 360 view from the summit: the Atlantic, the Bird Islands, numerous beaches and two mountain lakes. These mountain lakes are wildlife habitat, as is the trail which often has moose tracks and the occasional moose you'll see from a distance (even from the summit). It is wonderful to take a swim at the completion of the ascent and to picnic on the summit.

Like to shop for local crafts and art?
Visit the artisan's loop in both directions from Breton Cove: discover studios of local potters, leather workers, wood worker, iron workers and pewter silver.

Dine locally:
In the area you'll find fresh lobster and Cape Breton seafood, a baker, deli, and you are midway between Baddeck and Ingonish.

Tours:
Can arrange whale watching, puffin boat tours, local and sea kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and more.

Live music:
At Cabot Shores down the road as well as the St. Ann's United Church bi weekly ceilidhs and concerts
