About this listing
Experience life in a rural fishing village! The doors to my east coast house - a labor of love -across from the wharf are open wide to the world in time for the Celtic Colours International Music Festival. Would love to welcome you!
My house is a "storey and a half" structure, built in the 40s, that is similar in style to others in the local area. It's a simple space with creative touches to make it fun and functional.
This listing is for a private room (double bed) upstairs with a private bath (basin, shower, toilet) downstairs in a shared residence. Guest(s) have access to the main floor kitchen, living room, and den.
Interaction with guests
As this is my primary residence, I will be available to assist you for your stay.
Other things to note
It's an approximate 15 minute drive to the town of Louisbourg and about a 30 minute drive to the city of Sydney.
No pets reside here and pets are not permitted to stay on the premises out of consideration for guest(s) with allergies.
I've retired and relocated from an urban west coast condo to the house where I was raised. My parents built this house seventy years ago and now I'm creating a home base for future travels. An active home exchanger for more than ten years, I thought I'd try this site to share the experience of a rural east coast lifestyle and help fund repairs to my humble abode.
It's been a big change and at times a challenge, but I can live in a rural or urban space, however I'm at my absolute happiest when I can blend the best of both! I need to live near waves so that's covered! There's a beautiful beach down the road and awesome surf waves are a two hour drive away in Point Michaud.
About my beloved house:
It's clean and comfortable. There are new windows and doors with deadbolt locks. The new front deck with a wrap-around - no steps - glass railing is an awesome place to unwind. Since the house is in a rural area, there's a gravity-fed well on top of the hill and an septic system so "cottage rules" apply (conserve water). There are local laundry facilities.
"Create a life you imagine" is the mindful intent that inspires me to share my space. I'm still trying to "figure" it out in regards to "home base" and "travel/ live" around the world. I invite you to join me on this journey!
