Stay in our Farmhouse
Your Home Away From Home
Our traditional farmhouse is nestled up in the secluded hills; 60 acres on the ocean side of the Cabot Trail in the small community of Skir Dhu. It is a restored, 19th century dwelling of the Urquehardt family homestead located directly off the Cabot Trail. 12km away from the main lodge of Cabot Shores, it is a great jump-off point to the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and the Cabot Trail.
The Breton Cove Farmhouse
Inside the beautiful farmhouse is a cozy wood stove, dining room, full kitchen (electric stove, microwave, refrigerator, dishware and utensils), two full baths, and a washer/dryer. There are 5 bedrooms (2 downstairs and 3 upstairs), for a total of 3 queens, 1 double and 4 twin beds. There are also 2 couches that fold out into queen beds in the spacious living room. You can also bring your furry friend for an additional $15 a night. Linens, towels, and soap provided.
Trails leading from the farmhouse through a meadow extend through the old growth forest to a look-off over the ocean. A short drive away at the main lodge of Cabot Shores, you can rent kayaks, canoes, stand up paddle boards, go swimming and more. Explore more trails, have an evening of entertainment and great food at our Bistro, a drink at the bar, or just soak in the scenery. You are always welcome.
