Our little Garden Shed, as we've fondly named it, is a newly restored guesthouse perched on the hill over looking the beautiful Margaree valley and just off the Cabot trail.

The space
The Garden Shed is a cozy space with beautiful views of the valley and lots of natural light. We've renovated the shed ourselves using many reclaimed materials including the original boards from our house (built in the 1860s). The main room has a woodstove and a ladder to a small loft area that has a double bed. The main room also has a futon couch that folds down into a double bed.
The small kitchen is equipped for you to do your own cooking if you would like and has a hot plate, sink, toaster, kettle and mini fridge.
There is NO running water in the shed, and no conventional bathroom. The bathroom is equipped with a composting toilet. We supply jugs of water that can be used for washing in the sink (there are drain pipes) as well as for drinking water. We have a rustic solar shower (camp bag shower) for the sunny days.
In the cooler seasons, the space is heated by the woodstove. As this is the only heat source, guests should be comfortable operating a wood stove.
Obviously, by principle, and especially since the guesthouse is located next to our family home, I need to mention that we expect everyone to respect the land and the house as if it was their own.

*~Special Notes for the Winter Months~*
So you're making the trip up to the highlands in the winter-lucky you! We have a real winter up here and its the perfect place for a ski adventure or explore the woods on snow shoes. We have some of the best snow in the province and could gladly point you in the right direction. On the other hand, why not just spend a few days cuddled up reading by the fire....A few important points for those that are considering visiting in the winter.
-We do not plow our driveway in the winter. It is about a 50 meter walk from the parking place to guest house.
-The Guesthouse is equipped with a woodstove for heat. You will be responsible for heating the guesthouse during your stay and should be comfortable operating a woodstove.

Guest access
You're welcome to relax in our garden, visit our chickens, or walk up the hill behind the house for some amazing views of the valley.

Other things to note
We have a playpen as well as toys and books for those travelling with small children- just let us know!

Just off the Cabot Trail we are close the margaree river, 10 minute drive to the coast and fabulous beaches, and 30 minutes drive from Cape Breton Highlands National Park. We are just minutes away from a grocery store and the dancing goat cafe
