Cape Breton Island was voted over all other vacation spots in Canada as the second most beautiful travel destination in the world by over 200 internationally renowned travel agents. In 2011, the well-known travel magazine Travel and Leisure chose Cape Breton Island as the Number 1 Island in the Continental U.S. and Canda and the Number 3 world best Island. In 2014 Usatoday.com voted Cape Breton one of 10 romantic islands worldwide you'll fall in love with. In fact, along the stunning costal areas you can admire seals, pilot wales, dolphins, eagles, hummingbirds, loons and puffins. People in Nova Scotia have a very strong relationship to the sea as their main income comes from fishing lobsters. Life on land is very quiet and slow. People here have time, are open and extremely friendly to sailors, as they rarely see some.
The Yellownose House is unique on the island because of its location directly by the beach and its high standard of living. It is a difference in living close to a lake or to reside directly by the ocean with private beach. Compare carefully! We have uploaded pictures and guest pictures on this website for this purpose to see the difference between ocean view and our oceanfront property. It is furnished to suit European tastes and features, for example, 220 Volt transformators, in addition to the local 110 Volts. Except for TV, you'll find everything you need. The high-end kitchen like all closets and floors, typically for Canada, is solid wood and leaves nothing to be desired.
A large porch (2.5m by 30m, safe for toddlers) around the house on three sides allows sunbathing and outdoor living surrounded and protected by maples, birches, and firs. From here, you can enjoy the mild breezes of the Atlantic and the romantic views of river and island life .
