The renovation and birth of Highland View House

Watch as Paul and I (with lots of help!) transform this house on the Cabot Trail in rural Cape Breton into a vacation rental retreat for visitors to the island.

Hi, we’re Paul and Sarah, the owners of Highland View House. Paul is a fiddler, retired lighthousekeeper, composer and publisher of traditional Cape Breton fiddle music books. Sarah is a potter and artist, also a fiddler and lover of the outdoors!

That’s Louis. He’s pretty much pure sweetness and takes his job as a cuddlebug, snuggle machine and lover of walks quite seriously.
