Raspberry Cottage and Explorer's Cottage are located in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada. Raspberry Cottage has a water view, while Explorer's Cottage is waterfront on the Bras d'Or. The entire area and water on which the properties are located is a UNESCO World Heritage Site as a designated biosphere reserve. Guests experience a high level of care and have access to the owner by text or email, access to a book the owner wrote about local activities, and also may ask the next door neighbor questions during their stay. The cottages offer guests the opportunity to create their own experiences with both included and extra activities, including nature walks with locals, fishing, travel photography workshops, and lectures with locals. The cottages specialize in creating country life experiences for groups and families who are used to living in a city or the suburbs. Guests have the opportunity to pick fruits in an orchard, tend to large plots of kitchen gardens, and hike with a local guide. These activities are meant to build relationships in a calm environment.
