The Art House is in a superb location and has been beautifully and lovingly restored by Marcus and Stephanie making it a comfortable and interesting place to stay with comfortable seating, a great kitchen and bathroom and an absolutely stunning bedroom with its own balcony overlooking the ocean. There is direct access to the beach from either the kitchen door or the garden and although the house is quiet and secluded the highway is close by giving easy access to all the attractions that Cape Breton has to offer. The views from every room are lovely and the sunsets amazing and we have had a truly amazing stay at this wonderful house.

The last week in August was such a wonderful time to visit all that Nova Scotia has to offer. After arriving in Halifax and dinner downtown by the harbor we headed the next day to wine country in Wolfville and Grand Pré. What a great way to spend a couple relaxing days with great food and great wine tastings at some of the premier winemakers in Nova Scotia while exploring the amazing Minas Basin. From Wolfville the next afternoon we set out to get to Cape Breton Island and Beardman’s Art House by the Sea. The drive was comfortable and easy and showed us how nice Nova Scotia countryside is from the view of your car. Even though we had been on the Beardman’s website multiple times and gone through their gallery of photos in anticipation of our stay, you just cannot compare it to pulling in the drive, walking up the front steps and stepping inside for the first time. Stefanie and Marcus have gone above and beyond to create the perfect vacation get-a-way in Cape Breton Nova Scotia. All the furnishings and all the details inside and out of Beardman’s Art House are perfect. From the breathtaking ocean views at the private beach behind the home to the gorgeous gardens of flowers surrounding the home you are never at a loss for beauty. The master bedroom with its floor to ceiling windows give you amazing views of the ocean when you wake and an unbelievably star field at night. As if that somehow wasn’t enough, the home is full of John Beardman’s original art which is captivating to explore. We felt totally relaxed and comfortable as soon as we walked in the door. Using Beardman’s Art House as a base to then explore all of Cape Breton for the week puts this vacation at the top of our recommendation list to anyone considering a trip to Nova Scotia. Visits to Glenora Distillery, Big Spruce Brewery, Cabot Trail, Highlands National Park, are some of must-dos on this trip. Hopefully you will love all that Beardman’s Art House and Nova Scotia has to offer as much as we did.

Eine echt sehr romantische Location direkt am Meer gelegen, sehr inspirierend, mit einer echten „Heritage“. Das Haus verfügt über drei Schlafzimmer und ist komplett renoviert. Wir waren dort als Familie mit zwei Kindern. Bei gutem Wetter ist es sicherlich einer der schönsten Orte der Welt. Zum einen, weil Cape Breton für jeden Naturliebhaber viele tolle Orte hat, zum anderen, weil es einfach faszinierend ist, Sonnenuntergänge mit einem Sundowner und dem direkten Blick aufs Meer von der eigenen Terrasse aus zu sehen. Die Vermieter sind auch total entspannt, zumindest wenn die Gäste es auch sind. Der Strand ist steinig, deshalb sind Badeschuhe zu empfehlen, aber man hat ihn dafür für sich alleine. Lagerfeuer und grillen am Strand sind kein Problem. Alles zusammen gefasst kann man nur sagen: total empfehlenswert!

Beautiful secluded seaside site with private beach, beautiful house beautifully maintained & decorated, spectacular sunset views looking out towards the vast Northumberland Strait & PEI to the NW & mainland Nova Scotia to the SW. Peaceful. Aesthetically pleasing. And: situated right on the fantastic yet sparsely used 90km/50m coastal rail trail, which continues north all the way to Inverness, ideal biking on hard flat dirt & gravel with ocean & forest & farmland views and easy access to wide empty beaches and small fishing harbors. .And: the Celtic music centre & its daily lunchtime fiddle sessions just minutes away by bike or car, plus the Cape Breton traditional music scene in general in multiple other locales from Judique to Inverness, including Mabou’s justifiably famous Red Shoe restaurant, half hour or so up Rt 19. All good!
