Uma casa Acadian com uma história! Esta quinta foi originalmente localizado em Cap Rouge, no Parque Nacional! Quando o Parque foi criado em 1940 e os acadianos teve que sair, proprietários desta pousada trouxe-(flutuou-lo!) para Cheticamp Island- e quase não fazê-lo. Mas tem sido muito feliz liquidada em acres e acres de campos de feno e floresta desde então. O Island Light Road é uma estrada de terra que corre ao longo do porto de Cheticamp Island, da praia quente, Nice areia ao longo da calçada que leva à ilha por todo o caminho até o farol Ponto Enrage na extremidade norte da ilha. Sem tráfego de uma grande estrada para caminhadas e para ciclismo. Trilhas de parte de trás da vantagem casa para as capas de cabeceira no a "volta dos island'- 150 falésias pé sobre o Golfo de St Lawrence. Baleias, focas e águias de vários tipos para assistir, e muitos blueberries para pegar no caminho.
This house on the island is a treasure. It is equipped with everything anyone could want for a week. Whatever you forgot to bring - it's already here, probably in large quantity. There are a dozen bikes in various sizes for exploring the island roads. (And do explore them. The ends of the island are wonderful places to ramble, especially at sunset.) There are so many games, sports equipment, activities in the garage that you'll never exhaust them. The bookshelves are crammed with gorgeous photo books of the area and lots of interesting reading. The view across the water to the town and the Highlands beyond is lovely and constantly changing with the light. Water access at the end of the lane makes it easy to kayak in the shelter of the harbor - but be forewarned that outside of the harbor mouth the wind ceaselessly blows and makes for challenging kayaking. We loved the hiking in the park, had the inevitable moose encounter, saw waterfalls and barrens and carnivorous plants and stunning vistas and the largest fern field I've ever seen. Mountain biking is limited in the park to a few trails, but outside the park, exploration yields many possibilities. There's also a biking rail-trail along the coast southward.
Gretchen gave us a history of the house which is amazing and made our stay there that much richer. She lives nearby and is very responsive but never intrusive. She was a wealth of information about the area and any activities we might have in mind.
We were largely untroubled by mosquitos or other biting bugs, had comfortable nighttime sleeping weather with a cool breeze blowing through. The stars at night - so many! - away from city lights. The quietness, day or night - exquisite. Snowshoe hares hopped around the lawn, a hawk perched in the evergreens outside the dining room window. The Blue House is a wonderful vacation choice.
Our party of 4 adults, our 12 year old son & dog had a fabulous week @ The Blue House August 2014. Cheticamp Island is quite unique in having both a small bay for easy watercraft enjoyment, & an expansive sand beach on open ocean for swimming & sunbathing. The cycling and hiking on the Island also rate highly. Gretchen is a fabulous host & so knowledgable about the physical, marine, social & historical dimensions of the area. Cheticamp proper is a traditionalAcadian village with a distinct, vibrant culture. The local bakery-Aucoin's-is fantastic with fair pricing. So much to do! We will definitely return.
My family stayed at this home for a week's vacation to Cape Breton from Virginia, USA. It was just perfect for the 5 of us. Lot's of room, a stocked kitchen, laundry, comfortable sitting areas, and a beautiful outdoor setting. We enjoyed walking in the woods behind the house and our dogs loved the open fields to run in! Since the house is situated on the island it was very quiet and a nice road to run or walk on.
The proximity of the house to Cape Breton National Park was perfect. We were able to hike, swim and explore the area, and then return home for dinner or to clean-up before dinner out at the wonderful restaurants in town. We absolutely loved this area of Nova Scotia and could have easily stayed for month, if not the whole summer!
Thank you Gretchen for a wonderful stay!
We had stayed at the Blue House in 2010 and loved it, so we were all looking forward to another stay. And we were not disappointed. It was clean and even new-seeming, although the house itself is old; owner Gretchen has really fixed it up beautifully.
The house is cosy without being small, and is so well decorated that it makes you want to rush out and buy blue glass jugs and brown, shell-decorated scatter cushions just like Gretchen's. It has all the stuff you need for a good stay in the way of cooking, including all the paraphenalia needed to eat lobsters and crabs from the shell. Oh yum. Or anything else, actually, like a casserole.
We used the Blue House as our base for local activities such a whale watching and beach visiting--to far-away Inverness, closer Whale Cove and nearby St. Pierre.
My grand- kids loved it. Tallis, age almost 5, went into the water at all of them, as did Devon, age 10. So did my husband and son in law. My daughter sought sea glass at all of them and had quite a collection by the time we left.
Little Tallis thrilled herself and us by finding the only pale lavender glass, which is very rare. She also reached some kind of artistic bloom on this trip, perhaps because she saw pilot whales for the first time. She was soon drawing everything she saw, from flowers to pilot whales and all kind of sea life with her colored pens.
Devon loved the whales, and enjoyed one afternoon of Gretchen's marine biology course for teenagers, claiming with excitement that she actually touched a fish. She also came home with buttons to stick on her jacket, with sea creature pictures she had drawn, which Gretchen had taught her to make into wearable art.
At night, we sang songs around the firepit, roasted marshmallows and sipped hot chocolate, while looking up at the vast sky available to be seen above the house. The lights across the bay glittered like gems. And in the house, the wind blew sweetly through the windows, soothing us to sleep when we finally climbed up to bed.
Thanks Gretchen; you are a most accomodating hostess. And you have an awesome house!
Our family of 5 stayed here in July and it was a perfect family spot. Gretchen was a very helpful host and the house supplied everything that we needed. The location was great to drive to whale watching in Pleasant Bay and to visit the National Park for hiking. The golf course (Cabot Links) was close and a very beautiful course. The house is located near all amenities and comes with bikes/beach chairs/kayak/bbq/lawn games and a beautiful view of Cheticamp. I would highly recommend this home and we hope to be back again in the future!
Me and my family had a wonderful time. It was the 6 of us; me, my husband, my mother in law and my 3 kids and there was plenty of room for all of us. The home felt very comfortable and Gretchen was most graceful!! We enjoyed Cheticamp village and all it had to offer including a whale watch boat tour, we didn't see any whales but we did see many dolphins, and of course we saw the Cabot trail. We also went to the miners museum, which was a short drive away, as well as the puffin boat tour. Gretchen really went out of her way to see that her guests are comfortable, you won't be disappointed. We spent a week and really need more time to enjoy every thing. Oh and by the way, the scenery is truly breathtaking!!
