About this listing
Glenville Cottage is a charming century cottage located in "The Glen", less than 10 minutes to Inverness or Mabou, on the west coast of Cape Breton. Location is key. It's rural but just off Route 19, the main highway that runs through western CB.
Located in Glenville, on the west coast of Cape Breton Island, the house is a bright, open concept living space with 3 bedrooms and bath upstairs, which can accommodate up to six people. There are 4 entrances with a large deck off the back of the house which offers views of the Cape Mabou highlands. A brook also runs through the four acre property. The cottage is fully furnished and includes a dishwasher, washer/dryer, and jacuzzi tub.
The home was built around 1901 but has had many renovations in recent years. There are Honduras pitch pine hardwood floors throughout. Four skylights on the second floor add beautiful light during the day and offer a chance to stargaze from your bed at night. The jacuzzi bath tub is a nice way to relax at the end of the day.
The cottage has a feeling of privacy but is centrally located just off Route 19 directly between the villages of Inverness and Mabou. Inverness, less than a 10 minute drive, has beaches, shops, hospital, Arts Centre and is home to Cabot Links golf course. Mabou, the same distance in the other direction, has more beaches, hiking, and the Red Shoe Pub. Walk to the Glenora Distillery, half a mile away for fine dining, the beautiful bar, live music, and single malt whiskey.

We grew up on Cape Breton Island - in Inverness and Mabou. This is our first house and one that we've admired for many years. We live and work in Halifax but visit Cape Breton as much as we can. Our most recent vacation was a long weekend in Chicago - Cubs game at Wrigley Field, a river/lake boat tour, lots of walking, a show at the Vic Theatre and delicious food. We're enjoying life with our toddler Lucinda Belle.
