El alojamiento
Explorer's Cottage (Registration # RYA2020-000067) is located in the heart of Cape Breton Island in the middle convenient to sightseeing in all directions on a UNESCO biosphere reserve and waterfront on the Bras d'Or, part of the Atlantic Ocean. Cape Breton Island was voted the 1st Best Island in Canada in 2018 and 2019 and the 8th Best Island in the World by readers of Travel + Leisure magazine.

Set on 150 acres of forest and in a botanical-park setting with over 100 specially planted trees, Japanese bridges, a birch forest, and a Japanese garden, Explorer's Cottage is a 4,000 sq foot retreat ideal for multi-generational family groups, friends traveling together, writing or artist workshops, or different families traveling together. Supporting the cottage also helps support the local caretakers.

There is a first floor suite with a private bedroom with a Queen-sized bed, three twin beds, full bathroom with bath and shower, kitchenette with a refrigerator and dish washer, and separate washer and dryer. The first floor suite is perfect for multi-generational guests, different families or friends traveling together, or for guests who keep a different schedule from the rest of the home, such as couples who prefer more privacy, new mothers and fathers, and teens. Guests have a wide range of sleeping arrangements from which to choose throughout the entire home.

For reservations made after May 1, 2019 when the price of the first floor suite began to be included, with smaller groups who do not need the first floor suite will be provided a discount per night reserved.

Guests can create their own experiences with activities, including nature walks with local guides, paddling a canoe or stand up paddleboard from the private beach, fishing, learning about vegetable gardens, picking raspberries, and picking fruits. The property has three outdoor grills and two outdoor picnic tables, so guests can make meals in the gourmet kitchen with produce they pick themselves from the property and fish that they catch themselves in the area with a choice of three cooking locations on the vast property.

Explorer's Cottage is furnished as a European country escape, with antiques in a modern way. Walk through a boreal forest, then a birch forest, on a winding asphalt pathway to the waterfront, picking blackberries along the way. There are often grouse sightings along the pathway, as well as woodpeckers, blue jays, hummingbirds, and many other bird and rare moth species.

Guests are provided fresh coffee and tea selections by guest services to welcome them to the cottage.

I also have another cottage on Airbnb, called Raspberry Cottage. Although the cottages are just across the street from each other, they are not visible to each other. Raspberry Cottage is smaller and has a water view from a sunny hill and an orchard: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/19358472

Acceso para huéspedes
Guests have all of Explorer's Cottage at their disposal, except for the garage and utility room, including the first floor suite. If guests have a smaller group, then the first floor suite cost can be deducted from the rental price. All the closets are empty. There are hangers, extra feather duvets, extra blankets, extra towels, and luggage racks in each bedroom. There is also included coffee beans, a coffee grinder, a French press, a traditional coffee maker, and included herbal teas.

The space is now included with the main reservation and has been surprisingly multi-generational families traveling together, for separate families traveling together, and for writing workshop groups.

Ubicación

Southside Boularderie, Nova Scotia, Canadá

Explorer's Cottage is remote, but also very centrally located in Cape Breton Island and convenient to all sightseeing.

While seated on 150 acres, and benefiting from the remote location in terms of having its own kitchen gardens and orchard, the property is still very close to necessities and attractions.

The village of Baddeck is approximately thirty minutes away, and it offers golf, sailing, a free pontoon boat to Kinston Island, the Alexander Bell Museum, and restaurants. Puffin tours are just a few minutes away. The Cabot Trail is just twenty five minutes away, and other attractions are about an hour away in all direction.

There is so much to do on the property as well that it is difficult to leave! Enjoy fishing, as rods are included, a guided nature tour through the private forest road and property, as well as raspberry, apple, and plum picking.

Explorer's Cottage is ten minutes away from a gas station, 25 minutes away from a large grocery store in North Sydney, Nova Scotia, and 35 minutes away from a large grocery store in Baddeck, Nova Scotia. Please see the included manual on Airbnb for a map of the attractions and grocery stores.

I have written a book for guests that they can refer to during their stay that helps them plan their trip. For people driving to the cottage from different states or provinces, I have started #CottageRoadTripAdventures on Instagram to showcase the places that people can visit on the way to the cottage from different directions. Please check this hashtag on Instagram.
