Jewel of South Haven' is how locals described this 1½ story remodeled Victorian Country charmer in the heart of Cape Breton Island. Nestled among the trees with lovely water views over St. Ann's Bay, the home has been artistically restored and modernized with care to insure its history lives on. Original wooden doors lead from the sun porch to the spacious living and dining room area where old hand hewn beams and fireplace add to the allure. The large, bright family kitchen has a breakfast nook, wooden shelves, cupboards and large stove and fridge. A utility room, full modern bathroom, bedroom and sun porch that can double as a small bedroom or office complete the downstairs. For heat there is both an oil furnace and a large heat pump, which doubles as an air conditioner in the summer.

Many windows provide excellent airy ventilation throughout. Upstairs, an open concept bi-level loft can be divided into two bedrooms, one with large walk-in closet and picture window and one with sky light and door to a deck with views of St. Ann's Bay and glorious sunsets. This arrangement results in three bedrooms. The house is approximately 1700 square feet.

The property is partly landscaped and includes fire pit, and large picnic & gazebo area over-looking St. Ann's Bay. Just a 2 -minute walk takes you to the water's edge, beautiful sandy shoreline and a popular fishing site.

The home has pure artesian well water and has been well maintained with a number of recent renovations including; new floors, appliances, new heat pump and insulation, paint, double pane windows, renovated kitchen and laundry room.


The country rustic cottages are fully furnished with picnic tables, and screened sun porches and have an old-fashioned Cape Breton charm. They are not visible from the house and have water views, their own yards and some landscaping. The storage shed is a third cottage and could be renovated.

The larger cottage called Forest Home has two bedrooms, full kitchen, 3-piece bath and living room with sofa bedsit that pulls out into two twin beds, so the cottage can sleep 5 people.

The WoodSong cottage is a large studio with two double beds, full bathroom, dining area and kitchenette and can sleep 4 people.
