It was known as Tete Blanche to the French of 1699, Martingot to the smugglers and pirates of the 1770s and in the 1920s White Head’s coves and islands continued their reputation for secrecy, as a haven for rumrunners.
Foxberry by the Sea Cottages is family operated (5th generation). There are many old stories to be told about the sea and rumrunning. Relax and read a book on one of our Adirondack chairs on the deck down by the water’s edge or search for that special piece of beach glass. Watch the sun set reflect on the white granite rocks cross the harbour and enjoy the salt air, peace and serenity. Enjoy a good night’s rest after a day of exploring the many trails, beaches, parks and museums on and off the Canso Peninsula.
Bring your kayak and paddle in and around the shelter of our many islands in the the harbour. Paddle through our historic canal that was dug without machinery in the 1800’s by local people in the village. The abandoned village in Yankee Cove lies directly across from us and is accessible only by boat. What ever you decide to do, we are sure Foxberry by the Sea will be a most memorable part of your seaside vacation in Nova Scotia.
