We loved being right on the ocean and enjoyed the visit of a large family of grey seals one morning. The house is very comfortable for two couples: one caveat is there are no blinds on the windows which made for early starts the the day!
The property and location on the beach is just breath taking. A great area to relax and explore different parts of Cape Breton!! We will plan a return trip next year.
Peaceful, private, and oh so pretty
Two couples shared Faraway for a week in early July and couldn't have been more enchanted. The setting was superbly beautiful, very private, secluded, peaceful and quiet. The house itself was lovely, roomy, comfortable, fully outfitted and clean. The view from the roomy front deck was outstanding looking south to the rocky bluffs (stunning), and north to the meadow and rock beach. The ocean was right out the front door, ever-changing, and just a joy to experience at various hours of the day. We saw seals and diving gannets, and were amazed by schools of mackerel making their way north, undulating and frothing in the calm water. We wouldn't have known what we were witnessing if it hadn't been for caretaker Dave, a lovely and helpful man. We so enjoyed watching the lobster boats every morning, exploring the beach (excellent rockhounding), and dipping our toes in the chilly French River. The trail down to the beach was through the meadow, then down a fairly steep trail with a rope rail to assist. It was certainly do-able for my bunch of young senior citizens… slow and easy was the ticket. Faraway was close enough to many touristy things north and south, such as the spectacular Cabot Trail, Ingonish, Baddeck and the Bras D'or Lakes area, and there's a beautiful sand beach about five minutes up the road. Four excellent restaurants were very close (The Clucking Hen had the BEST butter tarts we've ever had, and the pizza at Simply Pizza was excellent), groceries were about 30 minutes away, and a general store for sundries was just up the road. We have experienced many, many rental properties over the years, and Faraway exceeded our expectations in every way. Carole, thank you for sharing your special, magical place. We so hope to return.
This thoughtful review captures the magic of a stay on Cape Breton Island. There is wildlife, spectacular scenery--ocean, mountain, wood, and meadow--the comfort of a home away from home, and the company of delightful Cape Bretoners.
