Holiday Rental House
The house is located in the bay-front hills 15 km north of Inverness, Cape Breton, NS, Canada, and known in the neighborhood as “the red box on the hill.” Close to the Cabot and the Ceilidh Trail It has a spacious open kitchen and living room on the first floor (135 square meters, around 1500 square feet) with a window glass front that provides for an unobstructed view over the bay. On the second floor are 2 bedrooms and two bathrooms (95 square meters around 1000 square feet). The master bath room is equipped with a Whirlpool tub, a big walking Shower …and has a big window. The floors are finished with maple wood. The front deck offers a 180 degree ocean view with stunning sunsets.

The floors are finished with maple wood. The front deck offers a 180 degree ocean view with stunning sunsets. The other deck provides for breakfast in the morning sun, BBQ in the afternoon or evening. In the winter you have the cozy warmth of a wood stove and a heated floor. Inverness is within comfortable reach for grocery shopping or eating out in one of its restaurants with fresh sea food but far enough to give you the impression of being away from civilization. Activities in Nova Scotia are offered year round based upon the season. The newly opened Cabot Link's and Cliff's Golf Course is just 15 km away and provides for ocean views. This is ideal to get away from busy city life and to enjoy nature and outdoor activities. More

While staying at the Red Box, every sunset was an event worth pausing to view from start to finish. Both decks provide a beautiful view. The location of the Red Box provides privacy and solitude yet is only a ten-minute drive to Inverness. The home...More

The house is in a very peaceful and private location overlooking the ocean. The open plan of the house is beautiful, with lovely views of the ocean or forest out every window. It is close to Inverness, the Margarees, and many warm water sandy beaches....More
