Maggie's, a Beatuifully Restored Cape Breton Home

Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Englishtown, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia
Maggie's is an authentic Cape Breton farmhouse built at the turn of last century and restored so as to maintain its charm and character but include modern conveniences and appliances.

My family and I arrived at Maggie's in late July. We were very excited as we drove up to the house. Upon entering my 9 year old twin daughters could hardly contain their excitement when they saw all the furnished rooms. They felt as if...More

About the neighbourhood
Maggie's is in Skir Dhu on the world-famous Cabot Trail. This region of Cape Breton Island was first settled by Scottish homesteaders over 150 years ago. The son of the original Scottish settler, Colin Smith, built the house from wood cut and milled by hand for his bride Maggie. Since she survived her husband by many years the property came to be called 'Maggie's Place'.

Skir Dhu is on the 'North Shore' of Cape Breton Island. It is know for its excellent lobster and crab fishery, its Celtic and Gaelic culture and of course its scenery.
