The space
Our big old house is a hundred years old and rustic, so if you want sleek and modern, keep looking. It is on two lovely acres with gardens, next to a brook and near some woods, but is just a pleasant walk to the heart of North Sydney. It is a great base from which to explore spectacular Cape Breton Island. The house has many common rooms which you may be welcome to use, but access to shared spaces will be limited if covid risk factors are present,. we live here with our cat and dog and sometimes kids, and it is not always kept to the standards of a commercial BNB. We're renovating room by room, so it isn't consistent, but it is an interesting, welcoming and beautiful home.

Two pretty acres with a garden and places to relax outdoors. There is a beautiful brook with a ravine bordering the property. On the other side are acres of woods with walking trails. A twenty minute walk to the ocean, shops and restaurants.

I travel with my cohost, Chris, or friends, or solo, and best of all, with my 20-something year old, Cyrus. We are sometimes adventurous travellers and like exploring rainforests and reefs and things and could happily live in a treehouse.

However, we would have to take trips to the city, because we love culture, too. Cyrus is an amazing musician, physicist and now lives in Ottawa. Chris is a wonderful artist, I do a little of everything, we all walk the boards from time to time and write as well. I manage a justice centre.
We live in a big house on two acres in a semi-rural area on the edge of a small town in Cape Breton, Canada. We have an older cat, Apple, and a younger poodle, Ray Charles. We have been Airbnb hosts for some years now have hosted hundreds of guests, and we have also been host parents to many international students and WWOOF travelers over the past decade. We love to open our home to new friends.

During your stay

We love to cook and usually eat out doors in the summer, and you are welcome to use the barbecue. We are not always at home, but if we are, we would love hearing about your adventures. We can give you lots of advice about where to go and what to do in Cape Breton.
