Cottage Experiences

 

Raspberry Cottage and Explorer's Cottage are located on an island in the middle of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada. Cape Breton Island was voted the #1 2018 World's Best Island in Canada by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine! Raspberry Cottage has a water view of the sea, while Explorer's Cottage is waterfront on the Bras d'Or, part of the Atlantic Ocean. 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.
