A Lovely 2 Bedroom 1 Bathroom Home On A Quiet 44 Acre Lot.
About Scotty MacNeil
My wife Jen and I were brought up in the small community of Mabou, NS and we now live in Halifax, NS about 3 hours away. We have two children, Carson who is 20 and attending The Royal military College in Kingston, Ontario and Olivia who is 14 and is attending highscool here in Halifax. Jen's parents live 500m away on their farm. We spend as much time in Cape Breton as possible during our free time. I am the owner of Breton Electric, a small electrical contracting company in Halifax and Jen works at The IWK Children's Hospital as a respiratory therapist.
Scotty MacNeil purchased this House in 2015
Why Scotty MacNeil chose Mabou
We purchased this property in the spring of 2015 and decided to offer it as a weekly rental property. The property is located just one farm over from Jen's parents farm and so when it went up for sale we were anxious to purchase the property. We love spending time in the area due to the combination of rich culture, scenery, and the local people.

Nice area to visit
Okay place to stay. Location was fine to visit attractions on Cape Breton. Quite well equipped but visitors should know that there is no tv or hair dryer to prepare for their visit. Also there was no toilet paper when we arrived. We had visited a grocery store on our way in , but had to go out again to buy toilet paper. Surprising and inconvenient
Our house does not advertise a tv as one has never been requested. We will put a hairdryer in the house ASAP. Thanks
Mabou Harbour Road Paradise
We loved our stay! The proximity to all amenities and the charm of Mabou was perfect. We recommend anyone stay here except when we want to go back :)
It’s the perfect bungalow, everything works, the beds are super comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped down to a lobster pot and a turkey roaster. The setting in an open field is lovely quiet and private but beaches, town, the farmers market are just a few minutes drive. And that we could take our dog was just a bonus.
Second summer brilliant stay
Back for a second summer to rent this sweet house in Mabou. Scotty’s a gem, and the neighbourhood has everything you need: quick access to ocean beaches, Gaelic music and dancing every night, the famous Red Shoe resto, and the best stocked grocery, bar none, that I’ve ever encountered in a small town.
Always a pleasure having Marilyn and Ruby stay at our house. I love how much they appreciate every little thing you do for them. Be sure to book early next year do you can stay longer!
Our time in Mabou was an absolute dream vacation. Scotty's place was perfect, we couldn't have asked for a better place for our first trip to Cape Breton. The location was ideal for all the things we wanted to do - biking, beaches, music events. The house was clean, had everything we needed, and was exactly as described. Scotty was prompt in answering our questions. We'd love to return another year!
I am so glad you guys enjoyed Mabou and our modest home. Please come back soon for another visit!
Lovely pet friendly cottage. Spectacular skies in the evening. Only downer was the extremely long drive traveling in and out of CapeBreton Highlands Park. The home is simple in furnishings, clean linens/bedding but could use lighting in living room. Enjoyed our stay.
Our home is located in the picturesque village of Mabou. Home to The Red Shoe Pub and close to the famous Cabot Links and Cabot Cliffs golf courses. Mabou is a culturally vibrant community featuring many live music and cultural events throughout the year from family square dances to Ceilidhs.
