Summary

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 start or end of the Cabot Trail is about twenty-five minutes away, depending on whether it is driven clockwise or counterclockwise. Day trips are also possible for a variety of attractions, as the cottage is on an island in the middle of Cape Breton Island. 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 as included in your stay. The cottage is furnished in a country home style with items from all over the world.
