About Duane and Valerie Newell

We live in Ontario, Canada, and have visited the east coast regularly with our four daughters over the course of our marriage. Our love for the ocean, the friendly people and the gorgeous scenery were all driving factors for the purchase of a property in Cape Breton.

Duane and Valerie Newell purchased this house in 2016

Why Duane and Valerie Newell chose Inverness

When we started looking at properties in Cape Breton, we fell in love with the quaintness of The Quincy Beach House. While we've done some updating of the home, we love the rustic, beachy feel of the place. Being centrally located and so close to everything were criteria we'd put high on our list.

What makes this house unique

There are beautiful views of the sunsets and ocean from both the front and back yards. We often enjoy coffee in the early mornings out in the front sun room.

Convenient, Comfortable, Clean

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location as a base camp for exploring The Cabot Trail and walking distance to 5* Cabot Links. Duane was very accomodating and accessable. The place was extremely well stocked with everything needed and the welcome bottle of wine was a nice touch. No cable package on the tv and we were there during the US Open but no worries. Just head over to the Cabot Public House to watch the golf. Wifi was great and this location might be the best ever for notes posted everywhere for house tips.

Have to say, however, that the bathrooms are 2 1/2 stars. This is an older home that has been remodeled and the full bath upstairs is cramped. One cannot stand upright fully in the shower due to the pitched roofline. The 1/2 bath downstairs is also extremely tight and difficult to use the stool. Beds are a little creaky but still comfortable.

With that being said, we would definitely rent here again ... thank you, Duane ... overall we enjoyed our time there.

Golfers lodge

  • 4 of 5

Property was a great place to stay for a golf trip. Four guys looking for an inexpensive way to stay close to the Spectacular Golf Courses of Cabot Links and Cliffs. Our hosts were very accommodating. Although the house is a bit small, dated and has a challenging shower, it is clean and comfortable. We managed to have a good time and would return in the future. Thank you to our hosts, neighbors and the folks of Inverness who all made us feel welcome. Our new expression.... Right On!
