The kitchen was designed to take advantage of the views and faces a 180 degrees view of the ocean. It’s a superb place to enjoy the incredible Inverness sunsets directly behind the house in mid-summer. It’s equipped with glassware, dishes, small appliances, silverware, pots and pans, and the basic utensils that you’ll need for cooking. The kitchen is open concept with butcher block counter tops, refrigerator, range, microwave oven and dishwasher.

The landscape of Inverness gently slopes down to the ocean and this location was the lowest of the company house rows closest to the former mine entrance and now adjacent to the golf course. At the back of the yard is Cabot Links, which along with Cabot Cliffs are two world-ranked golf courses right here in Inverness. Cape Breton Highlands National Park is a 45 min. drive from Inverness and offers hiking and beautiful scenery. The coastline along the west coast of Cape Breton offers many excellent opportunities for photography, art and appreciation of nature. There is world-class salmon fishing 20 minutes away along the Margaree River. Celtic Shores Coastal Trail begins yards away from the house. From their website “The Celtic Shores Coastal Trail is a 92-km (57 mi) multi-use trail stretching from Port Hastings to the Town of Inverness on the west coast of the spectacular Cape Breton Island. Great for off-road cycling or long distance trekking, the easy, flat trail meanders along the coastline, through picturesque wilderness, skirts streams, and connects several communities and attractions. Along the way you will find active fishing harbours, warm-water beaches in Port Hood, West Mabou, and Inverness, the Celtic Music Interpretive Centre in Judique along with five other museums, Glenora Distillery, the Cabot Links Golf Course, and the not-to-be-missed Red Shoe Pub in Mabou. Come for some of the best live Celtic music on the island and a unique living Gaelic culture. See my Guidebook for all the arts, culture, events, restaurants and recommendations!
