About This Listing
Welcome to idyllic and tranquil Isle Madame! You will have all the comforts of a well appointed home along with the benefits of a rustic and tranquil seaside environment. Ours is an open concept Cape Cod style home where you can sip your cappucino or glass of wine on the screened in porch with a majestic view of the Lennox passage and the Atlantic Ocean. There are three bedrooms and a loft and two four piece bathrooms and a wrap around deck. Enjoy the balcony off the master bedroom. On cool nights, curl up in front of the Vermont Stove. If you love lobster and snow crab, you are only minutes from the largest lobster distribution facility in North America or the docks where snow crab is hauled in daily. There are endless ocean beaches to explore along with the very family friendly Pondville beach. There are many isolated trails to hike around the island. Enjoy the bike friendly roads that follow the coastline. Golf at the nearby Dundee golf course or take a day to travel around the Cabot Trail to enjoy the fall colours. Enjoy the easy access to shopping in our town Arichat or in nearby St. Peter's where there is fresh fish market every Tuesday, or Port Hawkesbury with two major grocery stores. Visit the local markets and enjoy the outdoor concerts nearby.

Aileen, the key holder, was a great introduction to island life - vivacious, interesting, informative and a great cook!
The modern Cape Cod house is spacious, filled with light and provides all amenities - as well as the luxury of an upstairs "parents' retreat". Decks on three sides provide a variety of outdoor entertaining areas. The house overlooks a channel and islands - a view that is constantly changing.
The island offers a range of coastal and other walks and is a good base for also exploring nearby sections of Cape Breton Island. Isle Madame islanders are very friendly and willing to share their favourite walking places with you.
We really enjoyed our stay in this house and on the island - it was well worth the distance travelled.
