Vacation Rental Description
Chanterelle Country Inn and Cottages is named after the golden mushroom, Cantharellus cibarius, which grows in abundance over its 100 + acres. The Chanterelle mushroom is one of the most "choice" of all wild fungi because of its fragrant flavor. Cape Breton Chanterelles are shipped all over the world to some of the most exclusive restaurants and dining rooms. When they are in season, you will find this delicacy in many of the dishes served in the dining room at the Inn.
The discovery of these choice 'shrooms was a major factor in Innkeeper Earlene Busch's decision to move from Boulder, Colorado, and build the Inn. She originally came to Cape Breton to pick up a bedroom suite of handmade curly maple furniture crafted by Bob Lambie of the Dovetail Shop near Margaree and fell in love with the area.
Recognizing the healthfulness of the fresh air, pure crystalline water (we call it Chanterelle Champagne) and the serenity and pristine beauty of the North River Valley and St. Ann's Harbour, she decided to build an Inn dedicated to the values of a healthy and "green" environment.
