Hi, I’m Alix!
I live in Sydney with my husband, two boys and our Doberman. I grew up in Cape Breton and recently moved back to the Island, after spending the past 11 years in Alberta.
This cottage has been in my family for many years and has been operating as a short term rental since 2017. We throughly enjoy hosting and love being able to share our little piece of paradise with others!
