This place is amazing!
We have stayed in a lot of rental homes in a lot of countries and this one is our favorite. The location is perfect -- you feel remote with a 180-degree view of the ocean with no other sign of human life, yet the local market is a 3-min drive away. (Or you could walk there and forage your own oysters and mussels along the way.) You're 5 min to Cheticamp and 15 min the Highlands park Cheticamp entrance. We hiked nearly every day in the park, bought local fish on the way home, and returned to make it for dinner in the well-stocked kitchen. On our one stormy day (which was amazing to watch from inside the cozy living room), the kids played hours of table tennis downstairs in the basement which is like its own little apartment with kitchen, new shower, and bedroom. We didn't need to sleep down there though because upstairs has three bedrooms and a bath -- just right for our family of 4. The kids also loved the big grassy yard where they could play soccer, fly their kite and play catch with our dog (who was in heaven -- she never gets this much space to run!) while the grownups could watch the sunset from the rocking chairs on the front porch. We also walked down to the water's edge where we collected rocks and drift wood and across the road to the two lakes where my son attempted to catch fish. (We got worms for a $2 donation in a shack behind the Dollar Store in case you're looking!) On a practical level, the house has everything you could ever need -- an abundance of towels, blankets, pots and pans, you name it; even a food processor! -- it's very clear that this was someone's home, not a property just to rent out. It's truly a special place. Definitely worth the 16 hour drive to get here from NY!
