The Sailors Rest House is located on the beautiful Isle Madame, the French Acadian heart of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia (Eastern Shore). Originally built by the first settlers in the mid-1800s, Sailors Rest has recently been fully renovated and now offers comfortable rooms equipped with bright furniture and handcrafted driftwood beach art. Here you can enjoy two cozy rooms with twin beds (one extendable to 2x2m = 78x78inch) on the first floor or watch the sunset from an extendable queen size bed with memory foam mattress in the living room on the ground floor.

You will immediately enjoy the L-shape deck, located on a 35,514 sq. ft. property, bordering the rocks and one of the 7 sand and pebbles beaches with lots of privacy.

Ask for our Hobie Adventure Island Trimarans. Learn how to sail in one day with our instructions.

After crossing the Atlantic and living on our sailboat for a few years we make a rest and renovated our private Sailor`s Rest House with lots of love.
