Eagles Pass, a classic Cape Breton Island cottage
Eagles Pass is a small seaside cottage on Cape Breton Island in Canada. Designed and built by owner Stewart Applegath in a traditional Cape Breton style, it has minimal roof overhang, mostly small windows, and classic shingle siding with white trim.
The interior combines traditional and contemporary details. A compact galley kitchen is open to the living and dining area. A cathedral ceiling opens the space to the rafters above. The corrugated metal of the kitchen wall blends well with the exposed framing of the white walls and ceiling. The 768 ft2 (71 m2) of floor space also includes a comfortable master bedroom and a small second bedroom.
Eagles Pass is available for vacation rentals through HomeAway.
