Awesome and Affordable River Cottage

Riverfront cabin with kitchen and patio
Precious cottage with an Angel's View

Overlooking the first Salmon Pool of the Cheticamp River, bordering the Highland National Park, and minutes away from the Acadian French village of Cheticamp, this jewel will please your soul.

Appearing to be remote, the active village is just 2 minutes away with drug store, grocery, beauty shops, gift shops, bakeries, museums, whale tours etc. But at the cabin you are surrounded by privacy of trees, mountains, and the Cheticamp River. Two blocks away is the Gulf of Saint Lawrence where the Cheticamp River spills into the salty beach.

The cabin is small but the view is large. Offering a full view of the Cheticamp River and Highlands National Park is your ever changing view. We watch moose, bear, deer, coyotes, chipmunks, squirrels, and eagles as they cross the river and forage the flora. Enjoy evening camp fires in the fire pit. Canoe the river at high tides or just sit and relax on the lawn with a view worth Angel's wings.

Inside the cabin is comfy sofa and chairs, Flat screen TV, DVD player, CD player, full kitchen and standard bathroom.

Fishing is fly reel only from the pool up. It is a scheduled river so 'catch and release'. You can trout fish also.

This is our private cabin so we maintain it with the comforts we expect for daily living.
We have outside amenities such as Bar- B- Que, , Fire Pit, Picnic tables, and outside chairs.

I am dog friendly. If you have a dog you want me to consider, please tell me the age, size and breed when inquiring to this listing.

The property is well named « Angels View »
Absolutely beautiful property, close to Cheticamp and entrance to the National park. Cannot beat the view. Clean property with everything you need. Beds are comfortable, cottage is clean.

4/5 Good

Stunning view, perfect location
This is our second stay at Angel View. The view truly is stunning and the close proximity to the Cabot Trail, the beach and walking trails is exactly what we were looking for. The cottage kitchen is well equipped; all was clean and comfortable-perfect for a couple with a pup (it would be tight for more than that-and not safe for little children with the cliff at the front of the cottage). We do feel that the cottage could use some updating but for us it was fine. We appreciated the air conditioner in the kitchen since it was 30 degrees. Richard the caretaker showed up to bring us more water and firewood which was great. All in all, we had a wonderful time.

5/5 Excellent

We pulled in the yard and we were in total awe at the view!! Angel's View is just that! The property was well looked after, and the atmosphere was serene and relaxing. The cottage inside was immaculate with every comfort of home. The owners were quick to answer any questions we had before our trip. Recommended highly!!!!

5/5 Excellent

Cozy Cottage with a Million Dollar View
We normally try to camp in wooded areas with privacy and access to trails and a lake or beach nearby, but trailer needed work this year, so we tried a cottage for the first time in 10 years. We couldn't have had a better experience here, it's secluded with a beautiful view and close to the Skyline Trail on the Cabot Trail. I could have spent all day looking through binoculars and staring out at this amazing view and enjoying visits from Charlie (the little dog next door is sweet!) and then bonfire each night with mountains and a full moon illuminating the river as the backdrop. Inside was very clean, & you'll find everything you need and then sit for hours in the window seat. One thing to note is that the twin beds in 2nd bedroom are small, but fit the 2 average height 14 year olds we had with us, and we slept great in the room with the double. Need to be careful of water usage (just basics, don't let water run) we're used to stricter usage when camping, so we had no problem. Everything was communicated well to us by the owner. I have recommended this place to many already and would love to come back again during a fall season <3

5/5 Excellent

Amazing Stay
Upon renting this property it was one of a few left in Cape Breton for the times we were looking. At first it seemed pricey for what we were getting, however the view from the property was absolutely worth the cost. Although small, the cottage has everything you need. The provide fresh drinking water, lots of cooking supplies and spices and wood for a fire. The hammock swings and canoe were amazing to have. We spent our one full day there exploring the beach at the end of the road and the river area across from the cottage. The river was easy to walk across and don’t go far above hip height. We got two adults comfortable in the bedroom with two twin beds. We would absolutely book this cottage again as the view was breathtaking.
