CMTR Cottage Managed by the Amherst Shore Country Inn

Ketchum Cottage patio

Overlooking the beach, near Amherst, Nova Scotia, the CMTR Cottage is the neighbour of the Ketchum Cottage. It offers the same commanding view of the sea. Beach access is easy and convenient. It’s also a couple of moments along a wooded trail through a Nova Scotia beach park dedicated by the province to Henry Ketchum’s attempt to build a “Ship’s Railway” in the early 1800’s.

While very rustic, the CMTR cottage offers the following amenities needed by today’s cottage goers:
