  • Description

    Description

    We have a small working farm and a 2-room bed and breakfast in beautiful Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Formerly from Ontario, we moved here in October 2009, 2 months after vacationing here. Our farm overlooks the Bras d'Or Lake, Cape Breton's inland sea. We have 2 llamas, Cotswold sheep, chickens, turkeys and three horses. We also have a small market cut-flower garden. Terri spends Sunday afternoons at the Ross Ferry Farmers Market just up the road.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Cape Breton has a rich Scottish/Gaelic history. There is lots of music - of all genres, my favourite being the fiddle music - with lots of opportunities to soak up that culture. Baddeck (just across the lake) is home of Alexander Graham Bell. Did you know he invented more than just the telephone? Cape Breton's history comes alive at the Fortress of Louisbourg and the Highland Village. The world famous Cabot Trail is a sight to behold. We also have a rich and vibrant Mi'kmaq community.
    A unique feature is that our farm is located in the UNESCO Bras d'Or Lake Biosphere.

    The Workawayers have their own private room with a double bed on the second floor. When there are no B&B guests they have use of the upstairs bathroom. Otherwise they will share our bathroom on the mainfloor.

    We encourage our helpers to be part of our family. A room in the house and meals are provided.

    What else ...

    Although I enjoy showing off the sights and experiences of Cape Breton, I also run a busy Bed & Breakfast. It is not always easy for me to take the time to "play tour guide", especially during July and August. It may be helpful if you have your own transportation. We do have bicycles and helmets that you can borrow.
