About this listing

Open concept newly renovated 100 year old school house!
Enjoy your holiday in central location of Cape Dauphin (20 minute drive to Baddeck) at the base of Kelly's Mountain, in a school house that is newly renovated, over 1200 square feet

The space

cathedral ceilings, original hardwood floors and wainscoting throughout, open concept kitchen and living area, bedroom on main level and a very large loft area on the second level which has two single beds and a queen bed, half bathroom and separate shower/tub room on the main level, large wrap around deck, bright and private with great views of the Bras D'or Lakes, nice breeze from ocean. There is a lovely sandy beach sometimes rocky spots depending on the years tidal action, just a 5 to 10 min walk (down a path, across a dirt road and down a driveway). For those who have trouble walking you can drive. There is a fire tub on the beach so you can collect wood along the beach and have a fire if you desire (of course weather permitting ). Very private and secluded. Pets are welcome (we charge a pet fee).

We also have two other properties with potential availability in the same area that could be booked if there is a gathering of families.

Restaurants and grocery store: There are a few restaurants close by. The cottage is approximately a 15 min drive down a dirt road (good condition) to the Trans Canada Highway. There are two good restaurants 10 min from the TransCanada Highway.

Cedar House Family Restaurant and Bakery
Fitzgeralds Family Restaurant and Bakery

The grocery store is 20 min drive to North Sydney or a 20 min drive to Baddeck.

Great place if you're looking for a cottage off the beaten path!

It was pretty cool to stay the week in a school house. The neighbourhood was nice. Good access to Sydney and the trail. Thanks for everything

This is a nice, quiet place. We found it clean and well equipped. It is well off the beaten path, but close enough (5 miles) to a major paved road so that we had no difficulty.

Richard was very responsive to questions and gave great directions. The Old School House is secluded, yet pretty centrally located for excursions in the north (Cape Breton, Bras d'Or region, etc). The house itself is wonderful--very rustic, well-built, and roomy. With just myself and my son it felt pretty extravagant, but the price is great and we enjoyed having our own space. It's perfect for a good sized family. I think we saw more wildlife there than anywhere else--deer, fox, eagles, even a grouse family. Thanks for a great time!

Definitely a beautiful place. Ideal for those who just want to get away. If you like nature you'll love the old schoolhouse at cape dauphin.
