HOME HIGHLIGHTS
Indoor fireplaceThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.
Sparkling clean10 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

Our big old house is a hundred years old. It is on two lovely acres with gardens, next to a brook and near some woods, but is just a pleasant walk to the heart of North Sydney. Itis a great base from which to explore beautiful Cape Breton Island. The house has many beautiful room which you are welcome to use, but we live here, and it is not always kept to the standards of a commercial BNB. We're renovating room by room, so it isn't consistent, but it is an interesting, welcoming home.

Though we didn't get to meet Nancy and Chris on our short stay they were great to communicate with. Our room was large and the bathroom just next door.

Nancy's place is in a very quiet and residential area with less than a 10 minute drive to the Newfoundland ferry. It was super convenient for us to go catch our ferry in time. Her and her dog greeted us even at late in the evening and we enjoyed our short stay with them.

If I could rate my stay at Nancys higher than 5/5, I would! Nancy and her husband, Chris, go so above and beyond to make you feel at home and comfortable. More than once we were greeted with a warm cup of coffee and some home made bread to start off our morning, and some lovely c…

I travel with my husband, Chris, and sometimes with my 19 year old son, Cyrus. We are adventurous travellers and like hiking exploring rainforests and reefs and things and could happily live in a treehouse. However, we would have to take trips to the city, because we love cul…
