The Space

Cottage by the sea has been winterized and is closed for the season. We reopen for bookings in April. If you are interested in a long term stay from November to March, please contact us and we might be able to open her back up.

Gabarus is a traditional Cape Breton fishing village overlooking the Atlantic with its own small bay. My family has lived in Gaburus for generations.

Our cottage was my great, great aunt's and was built at the turn of the 20th century to house a family, two small bedrooms for the kids and a larger one for the parents. It's very rustic, the kitchen has a coal-fired stove (together with all the standard modern conveniences), the bathroom is tiny, and any washing is hand and clothes-line only.

Gaburus is still in many ways a traditional Maritime fishing village, mainly lobster nowadays. The village's tricentennial is coming up in 2016.

Because I'm serving in the Eastern Hemisphere and my parents are living in Arizona, we only get to use the cottage a few weeks a year. It's being maintained by a relative while we're away, but we would like to open the house to respectful guests.
