Nestled on a beautiful hillside with a stunning view of the Bras D'or Lakes, this large A Frame, with an open concept, lofty ceiling and local spruce floors is an idyllic retreat for families and friends. There is water access to the beach with a five minute walk on a private trail and 2 km of a lovingly crafted hiking trail behind the house.

The space
There is a large deck with a dining table on the upper level and a screened in porch on the lower level for the buggier months.

It's a really comfortable space for a big group, but keep in mind it's the country and not always occupied. As much as we try to keep up with things, there may be the occasional cobwebs or household bug. Think cottage, and if you've never been to a cottage, maybe not the place for you. The view makes it all worthwhile.
