Overview:

High above the Margaree River, at the end of a lengthy woodsy drive, is this sizable and solid home commanding one of the finest river views in Cape Breton. Located about twenty minutes from Inverness and almost the same from Cheticamp, this four bedroom sweeping building has a full 60 feet of 10 foot deep deck that overlooks the river 111 feet below with an unparalleled vista of the wide and powerful river up-stream. The residence is unusually substantial, very comfortable and suitable for year-round living. The living/dining room and master bedroom all have large windows that make the most of the spectacular views of the Margaree River and Valley. The kitchen is well appointed and spacious with open concept dining. Above the attached 13 x 23 ft. garage is a fourth bedroom that could comfortably accommodate up to three beds for visiting fishermen, relatives or friends. With 15 mostly wooded acres, additional building sites could be cleared to provide a Fishing Club with a totally private retreat and some of the best salmon fly fishing in North America. Besides fly fishing (includes brown trout and striped bass as well as salmon) at the doorstep, world class golf courses, Celtic music venues, white sand beaches and more are all close by and easily accessible. While the area attractions have great appeal when you want to take advantage of them, this thoroughly private and permanently quiet haven is just the place to be when it's time to relax and take it easy.

Area:
  • Wildlife is varied and plentiful: in the air, you see Blue Herons, seagulls, Bald Eagles, Black Guillemots, Northern Gannets, Double Crested Cormorants and Common Mergansers; on the land, you see red squirrels, rabbits, coyotes, and deer; in and around the water, there are muskrats, Harbour and Gray Seals, porpoises and dolphins, as well as a number of different types of whales - Pilot, Humpback, Finback, Blue and Minke.
  • The beaches of Margaree are exceptional. They are easy to find and close together, all found on a nine-kilometre stretch of coastline. The water on the Gulf, or, 'sunset side' of the island is warmer than the Atlantic side of Cape Breton, making these prime Cape Breton beaches for swimming.
  • Cheticamp (13 miles north on Rte. 19) is a charming Acadian town with an excellent Co-Op grocery store, French baked goods, a number of good restaurants, the Le Portage Golf course, public wharves, local fishing fleet, sport fishing opportunities and much more.
  • The town of Inverness is approximately 18 miles South on Rte. 19 and offers grocery shopping, pharmacy, restaurants, a superior public beach plus the new world class Links Golf courses.
  • Other smaller communities in close proximity to Belle Cote include: Margaree Harbour, Margaree Forks, S. W. Margaree, N.E. Margaree, Margaree Valley, Margaree, Chimney Corner, Saint Rose, Portree, Dunvegan, Cap Le Moine, St. Joseph du Moine, and Grand Etang.
