From PEI we ferried across the Northumberland channel to Nova Scotia and eventually went around the renowned Cabot Trail. We repent that we spent only one night in Cabot Trail. We wil for sure go back to this part of Atlantic Canada and also stay with our host in Yellow Sidecar B&B. I do not have enough grasp on the English language that I can describe the sombre beauty of the accommodation which is right on the trail facing the ocean. The hosts Roger and Brenda are such a friendly and helpful couple. It could be that the beauty of the place was enhanced by the charm of our hosts. They cooked very hot breakfast to our liking – pancake with wild blue berries and free-run eggs. I do not know if they do with others but they offered us a second helping even after the sumptuous first serving.
Roger is an extremely talented person . An expert photographer ( be sure to ask him to share his digital albums containing photographs of the ocean in front of their premises) and also reserve some time to hear him describing the quiet wilderness that he has witnessed. Wished we had kept at least another two days with them.
The accommodation is only 25 minutes drive from Cheticamp and about 45 minutes from the Skyline trail. Do take an aimless walk along the coastline where their dog was almost bitten by a seal in one particular winter. I am mentioning these to describe the closeness of the property from the water.
The accommodation I think has three very well maintained rooms. The only drawback to some is that the washroom which is very clean and dry is shared. But this inconvenience was not felt by us due to other qualities of the accommodation and the charms of the hosts. And all these come at a very affordable cost. I strongly recommend YELLOW SIDE CAR B&B.
