About Marion Thompson
We have lived in this community since the early 1970s. Over those many decades we have built two homes and raised two children. In the early years John was a helper on a lobster fishing boat and I worked at the Bell Museum. In the 1980s we opened Leather Works and this allowed John to better develop and market his leather working skills and meant I could work closer to home while we raised our two daughters. John loves gardening, telemark skiing, biking to the local cafe and volunteering as a Medical First Responder/Fire Fighter. I love walking, snowshoeing, reading, dvd watching and cooking. We both like meeting new people, visiting old friends and living in this great community.
Marion Thompson purchased this Cottage in 1973
Why Marion Thompson chose Indian Brook
We had been travelling for a number of years and living out of knapsacks. We wanted a place where we could recharge our batteries and this community seemed the perfect place. It's been 40 years and we're still recharging.
What makes this Cottage unique
In our backyard we have access to The French River Watershed Protected Area, one of the largest wilderness areas in Nova Scotia. In our front yard we have the world famous, scenic Cabot Trail. The Atlantic Ocean is an 8 minute walk away from our front door.

I cannot rate this property highly enough. Beautiful property, comfortable and airy interior and great hosts. Marion and John are made to do this. Helpful, kind and welcoming people. We will definitely be back.
We loved having you here. Hope to see you again soon.
Beyond our wildest dreams!
We loved having you in the winter and were equally happy with your summer visit. Maybe you'll get a chance to come back in the spring or the fall sometime. (And thanks for those pictures.)
Definitely to be recommended
Warm welcome, nice location and fully equipped. A good place to stay - we enjoyed every moment.
We would love to see you again.
Fantastic area and hosts
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed Nova Scotia. The accommodations were excellent, very clean and convenient. Marion and John were great. We would definitely go back again!
Thank you. We're glad you enjoyed our place, the nearby café, the garden and the woods. Next time you can try out the trails. We'd love to see you again. Have a good winter.
Comfortable home in a lovely rural setting
We enjoyed our week at The Fieldstone Garden Guest House, recapturing our past experiences of the Cabot Trail some thirty years before. Marion and John were excellent hosts and were most helpful from food recommendations— fresh mussels and lobsters as well as the Clucking Hen—to booking cruises or anything else that struck our fancy! They made us feel like family.💞
Very quiet, comfortable accommodation.
A very convienient place to stay for touring Cape Breton. Accommodation was well presented and very clean. Marion gave great suggestions of places to visit.
It's always a pleasure to offer hiking, shopping, live entertainment & dining suggestions. And it's great when people give us info on what worked for them and what didn't.
Would love to see you again.
We have wilderness in the backyard & the ocean is a 10 minute walk away. When we are not in the garden we are beach combing, climbing the trails behind our home, bird watching, cycling to the Clucking Hen Cafe, and taking in as much of the active social life as we can. Cooking at home is fun, but in the summer we have lots of options for eating out. The nearby beach being the favourite. We have twice weekly acoustic music evenings, the Cabot Trail Writers' Festival, Celtic Colours Music Festival and numerous smaller events happening throughout the year, but particularly between June and October.
