Property Description

Chez Edmond is a century old farmhouse, located at Grand Etang, in the Acadian community of St-Joseph-du-Moine, at the base of the Cape Breton Highlands. Built in the late 1800's, it was completely renovated in 2003.

The house, located ½ km off the scenic Cabot Trail highway, overlooks a picturesque valley boasting plenty of green space. A short walk to the shore will let you observe magnificent sunsets.

Area Information

Things are a little different here on Cape Breton Island. The pace of life. The ocean backdrop. The history and the people. Even the weather. (After all, we are in Canada!) To get you more familiar with the region as you begin your adventure, here's some important information that should come in handy.


Cape Breton Island enjoys a varied, yet moderate climate, thanks to the influence of the Gulf Stream that runs off our shore. Temperatures are cooler along the coast and warmer inland. Coastal areas are prone to quick weather changes so keep a light jacket handy.

Average temperatures: Spring 10-14 C (50-57 F); Mid-Summer 20-25 C (68-77 F); Fall 10-14 C (50-57E F). For the most up-to-date reports at any time, call the Environment Canada Weather Center at 902-426-9090.

Cape Breton Island:

The island takes its name from a small cape or promontory named after the Breton fisherman.

It's the most easterly point on the island just southwest of Scatarie Island not far from Main-a-Dieu.

Cape (promontory): A piece of land jutting from the coast into a sea or lake.

Cape Breton Tartan

Black - for the wealth of our coal mine.â?¨Grey - for our Cape Breton steel.â?¨Green- for our lofty mountains, our valley's and our fields.â?¨Gold - for the golden sunsets, shining bright on the lakes of the Bras d'Or,â?¨ to show God's hand lingered to bless Cape Breton's shores.

Bedroom Description
