Enjoy breathtaking views of the renowned Mira River from the living room or one of your two private decks. Enjoy a beautiful sunrise while you listen to the loons call from the lower deck, followed by a kayak ride down the river. In the evenings cozy up around the fire pit, stargaze from the hammock or relax under the gazebo. The prefect spot for families and couples!

Where you’ll be

Grand Mira North, Nova Scotia, Canada

* Located in the heart of Cape Breton and 25 minutes outside the city of Sydney. Experience what it’s like to live like a local in one the most sought after area’s on the island but still be a short drive to some of the best attractions. After a day of exploring, come back and relax away from the city and the more touristy areas like the Cabot Trail.
Neighbourhood has minimal traffic and is quiet.
There is a small grocery and liquor store 13 minutes away.

Hi, I’m Alix! I live in Alberta with my husband, son and Rogue our Doberman. I grew up in Cape Breton and this cottage has been in my family for many years. We love having such a beautiful place to unwind and reset when we return to visit every year. We decided we wanted to share our little piece of paradise with the world ! We hope you love it as much as we do.
