Updated on Jul 12, 2019

On The Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Island.

Located in: Saint Ann's Bay
The Little Tarbotvale House is located in Tarbotvale on the Cabot Trail. It is near the road but tucked in so that it remains private. It is between Baddeck and Ingonish where there is golfing, boat tours, beaches, museums, restaurants and shopping. It is a short drive to many hiking trails and the beautiful scenery this Island is renowned for.
The Little House is located between Ingonish (Cape Breton Highlands National Park, Ingonish Beach and Highland Links), and the Gaelic College of St Ann’s Bay, and Baddeck (Alexander Graham Bell Museum, Bras d’Or Lakes, Bell Bay Links).
It is 5 minutes from IronArt and Leather Works artisans, and a few more minutes to pottery, glass artisans, and many other artisans around the Cabot Trail.

It is 15 minutes away from The Lobster Galley restaurant, Clucking Hen Café, and Moe’s fish and chips; 5 minutes to Simply pizza; and many more places as you go farther north or south.

You can go on hikes without taking your car, or starting 5 minutes away by car is the Red Island Trail which takes you to the ocean. 10 minutes away is the North River Falls hike which takes you to the highest waterfalls in Nova Scotia. There are endless hikes on Cape Breton Island in the National Park and outside of the Park.
North River Kayak is 10 minutes away, Puffin Boat Tours in Englishtown is 10 minutes away. There are sail tours in Baddeck and whale watching from Ingonish to Cheticamp.
3 minutes away in July, August and September at St Ann’s Tea Room there are intimate concerts every Tuesday and Friday evening at 7:30 with traditiional music

In October there is the Cabot Trail Writers Festival at the Gaelic College (15 minutes), and Celtic Colors concerts all over the island with nightly After Hours at the Gaelic College.

I live just over the mountain (or around the corner is easier) only 5 minutes away on my bicycle. I am usually available to answer questions, and enjoy sharing what I know about the area.

History of the little house: When Malcolm MacLeod was tired of living by himself on the family farm high up on the mountain by himself, he asked Bucky down below if he could build himself a little house on his land. He built the house in the late 60's and arranged to leave Bucky the house when he passed away. 40+ years ago when I moved here at 18, we would go to Malcolm’s for tea. He would tell us stories of the ‘old days’ when he would have a small herd of 30 or so deer grazing on his meadows, or when he would go west to Saskatchewan on the ‘harvest trains’ to help take in the crops. I found this particularly fascinating as I would hear the stories from my uncle on the farm in Manitoba of the trains dropping off men from the east to help out on the farm at harvest. They had outbuildings set up for these hired hands.

Bucky and Margie moved into the house after renovating it in the 80’s and now Margie has moved on to live in Baddeck near her daughter. And that brings us to now.

It has two bedrooms, a bathroom, living room, kitchen and small entry. One bedroom has a queen bed (a piece of art made by 2 local artisans, Luthier, Otis Tomas, and iron worker, Gordon Kennedy), the 2nd bedroom has a double bed made by local woodworker Larry Mikol. The house is fully equipped, including towels, soap, land phone, wifi, tv, rocking chair in the kitchen, washer and dryer, and art on the walls.
There are large opening windows all around which provide lots of clean outside air, plus a view from all rooms of the outdoors. The atmosphere inside is one of being at the cottage, and everyone who comes to stay don't want to leave.
