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.More
