Summary

Just 35 minutes from Baddeck and 45 minutes from the Sydney, Nova Scotia, airport, Raspberry Cottage is seated on a UNESCO World Heritage biosphere reserve with a water view of the Bras d'Or, part of the Atlantic Ocean. It is remote enough for guests to spot eagles, hares, and a few deer, as well as to experience country life with a pear, apple, and cherry tree orchard, concord grape vines, and raspberry fields. The cottage is about thirty-five minutes away from the village of Baddeck, Nova Scotia, which offers Regatta Week, sailing, kayaking, and the Alexander Graham Bell museum. The Cabot Trail is about twenty-five minutes away. Day trips are also possible for a variety of attractions, such as Cabot Links for golf or an intimate dinner, Glenora whiskey distillery, Mabou farmer's market, Inverness, Chéticamp, and the Fortress of Louisbourg. There is a private iron gate at the start of a gravel road to the cottage. Raspberry Cottage is surrounded by a clearing shielded with firs, spruce, and pine trees. Behind the cottage is about 150 acres of private, rolling woodland fed by a spring and stream. A private road through the forest can be explored with a local guide. The cottage is furnished in a country home style with items from all over the world.
