The space
Knockmore is located just outside of the quaint village of Baddeck, marking the start and end of the historic Cabot Trail. Benefit from the peace and tranquility of the surrounding forests and wildlife, nestled on a 104 acre property which is home to a 65 acre nature reserve. Enjoy over a mile of Bras D’or Lake frontage along with a 60-foot communal swimming dock. Guests also have shared access to a fresh water, spring fed quarry pool with a small dock, a short 3 minute walk from their door. A canoe and kayak may be available, as might the option, if you are cruising the Lakes, to tie your boat up for the duration of your stay. However, always check availability of the canoe, kayak and dock tie-up option upon booking.

Constructed using Eco friendly materials, Knockmore is proudly scent and allergy free. This all-season, fully insulated wood cabin offers hard wood floors throughout and European designed tilt and turn windows on all 4 sides for lovely natural ventilation.

Kickback and relax on your private all-season waterside porch or recharge in your bright and comfortable living room. Choose from two separate bedrooms featuring a Posturepedic King bed and two twin beds (which can easily be converted into a king), natural fiber linens, closet and bedside table. Bedrooms are separated by a 4-piece bath with a double set of sliding doors. The bathroom features ceramic tile flooring, quartz vanity top and sink, toilet, tub with shower and new linens.

Enjoy the seasonal yields of surrounding farms at the local farmers market or top up at the local grocery store for a special dining experience right at home. Your fully equipped kitchen includes a 13-foot-long quartz countertop with modern Ikea cabinetry, a full size induction cooktop and convection oven, a fridge with freezer, double stainless sink, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, coffee & cappuccino machine, mixing set, utensils, dinnerware and a 6 seating dining table.

Take a short 6-minute drive to town to experience the local shops and restaurants, bakery and coffee shops. Explore the Alexander Graham Bell Historical Museum, hop on board the Amoeba sailboat for a unique tour of the Bras d'Or Lake, or take a stroll down the boardwalk to experience the scenery at your own leisure. Enjoy a hike or bicycle ride at nearby nature trails, including Uisge Ban Falls and Kidston Island. Local golfing opportunities include Bell Bay and Baddeck Forks. Live entertainment from some of Cape Breton's finest artists takes place daily at the Bras d'Or Yacht Club, Baddeck Gathering Ceilidhs and Theater Baddeck.

My wife, Deborah, and I spent our working lives in busy Toronto but Cape Breton always called us back every summer. Since retirement in 2016, we spent the majority of our time in Baddeck, NS, working tirelessly on rehabilitating an old gypsum quarry into a nature reserve we now call Knockmore. We are so thrilled to share this piece of paradise with our guests!
