Beachfront Cottage in Broad Cove Marsh

About the property

Located along the picturesque Ceilidh Trail on the western side of Cape Breton Island, “The Cabin” is the ideal spot for your vacation get-away.

Nestled between two cliffs, the property boasts 3 bedrooms, eat-in kitchen with 4 appliances, washroom with shower stall, washer & dryer, satellite TV, WiFi, large family room, two-level deck with barbecue, and an awesome outdoor shower.

The Cabin is a stone’s throw from Broad Cove beach. From the deck you can watch your children play in the freshwater brook and on the beach. Sit back and relax on the deck taking in spectacular sunsets and star gazing at night. When it’s time to call it a day, let the sound of the rolling waves lull you to sleep.

There is much to see and experience in the historic Town of Inverness. Spend the day at its 4.6-km/2.9-mi sandy beach with boardwalk, the heritage-designated railway station now serving as the Miners’ Museum, the Inverness Raceway established in 1926 where harness races are held twice weekly between May and October, and quaint harbour. Book a tee time at the world-renowned golf destination of Cabot Links, North America's only true links golf course, or its sister course Cabot Cliffs both ranked among the top 100 courses by Golf Digest. Did we mention you can see the signature 16th hole of Cabot Cliffs from the beach at Broad Cove? And, if you time it right, enjoy a toe-tapping experience at the annual Broad Cove Concert featuring local and international musicians.

The adventures continue with horseback riding through Gillis Mountain Trail Rides, whale and seal watching tours, kayaking, hiking trails, and salmon fishing on the Margaree River. If, after a long day’s activity, you don’t have the energy to cook, the are a number of local watering holes offering an array of dining experiences.

Other nearby attractions include:

- Cape Breton Highlands National Park and the internationally-famous Cabot Trail, named one of “World’s 10 Most Beautiful Highways” by

- Village of Baddeck on the Bras d’Or Lake where Alexander Graham Bell had his summer estate Beinn Bhreagh

Our stay at the cottage was breathtaking.

  • 5 of 5

You have to experience this glorious piece of nature that creates a pretty amazing feeling of awe. The private powdery sand beach. The cliffs. The ocean. The sunsets. It is spectacular! This truly is Canadian natural beauty.

This is a gorgeous property right on the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

You will not regret booking this property! It has everything that you could need and immediate access to a gorgeous beach. My family of 5 only got to spend 3 nights here, but wish we had time for more. Anne is an excellent host as she not only spends time explaining the property’s amenities, but is also willing to share information about the area and it’s history.

Incredible location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cottage. Ann was an incredible host and met us when we checked in and went over everything about the cottage and local sights.

The views are incredible and during low tide you can walk along the beach towards Inverness.

Everything you need is available in the cottage and other than food you don't need to bring a thing. My son loved the outdoor shower!

There are lots of things to do in the area and Inverness provides everything from groceries to great dining spots.

Our family had a great time at the cottage and would return in a heart beat.

Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

I can't begin to describe what a special place this is. The cottage was perfect for my young family, and our son officially became a "beach kid" on this trip - with a spectacular beach right outside the door, how could he not? Ann was such a great host, and we can't wait to stay at at "Doctor Jim's" cabin again!

CApe Breton's beautiful West Coast

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at the Cabin on Aug 5 for a 2-week stay to sunshine, calm waters and 27C. Our host met us and showed us around the roomy 3 bedroom cottage that has pretty well everything you need. Great decks and the outdoor shower is heavenly. The beach is 70 feet away and the water warm. The property is quite private with neighbours a distance behind or off in the distance on Gillis Mountain. While our driveway serves as a right of way for locals who like to come along to the beach, they were no bother and prefer to walk to the far side of the beach and not in front of the cottage. We were even serenaded by a piper one evening when folks came down for a a bonfire. Just above the property, Gillis Road takes you around the mountain with spectacular views - great walking. Inverness is just 3 km away with all the amenities. Biking trails from the village are well groomed and part of the Trans Canada Trail network. The only thing to keep in mind is that the surf can be very rough in August - making swimming risky on certain days. On days when the surf was up - we just checked with lifeguarding services at Inverness Beach and judged accordingly. A final note would be that the sunsets are spectacular. We would definitely go again.
