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.
