Overview
Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 8
Englishtown, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia
Maggie's is an authentic Cape Breton farmhouse built at the turn of last century and restored so as to maintain its charm and character but include modern conveniences and appliances. Many of the original furnishings and antiques from its past remain in the house. This part of Cape Breton was settled by Scottish homesteaders between 150 and 200 years ago. The son of the original settler, Angus Smith, built the house from wood cut, milled and planed by hand for his bride Maggie. Since she outlived her husband by many years the property became know as 'Maggie's Place'. We are proud to continue the tradition. Staying at Maggie's is more than the usual holiday experience. To quote one of our numerous reviews (on a competing site), '...It was like we had stepped back in time and we had this beautiful historic ho... Read more

We spent 8 days at Maggies and found the home very clean, comfortable and homey. The bedding, towels and kitchen linens were sparkling clean and plentiful. Beautiful quilts were on each of the beds. The kitchen was better equipped than mine at home! Three different appliances to make coffee!! The warmth that was provided by the wood stove and the...

We were a group of 6 that spent the middle week of August at Maggie's and we all loved it. The oldest was 84 and the youngest was 15 and it appealed to all ages. It felt like home from the moment we walked in and found a home made pie waiting for us to the time we left with...

My family and I arrived at Maggie's in late July. We were very excited as we drove up to the house. Upon entering my 9 year old twin daughters could hardly contain their excitement when they saw all the furnished rooms. They felt as if they were experiencing the past for real! Wood stove, 1920's gramophone, decorations which all contained...

About the neighbourhood
Maggie's is in Skir Dhu on the world-famous Cabot Trail. This region of Cape Breton Island was first settled by Scottish homesteaders over 150 years ago. The son of the original Scottish settler, Colin Smith, built the house from wood cut and milled by hand for his bride Maggie. Since she survived her husband by many years the property came to be called 'Maggie's Place'.

Skir Dhu is on the 'North Shore' of Cape Breton Island. It is know for its excellent lobster and crab fishery, its Celtic and Gaelic culture and of course its scenery.
