I am a grandfather and writer of prose and poetry. Some of my books are 'My Grandfather's Cape Breton', 'Notes from Exile: On Being Acadian' and "Looking for Henry.' The village of Grand Etang is where my father was born and I spent summers with my Acadian grandfather. I am comfortable communicating in English or French as are most people in the village. The house you are looking at is brand new and where I will be living for part of the year. It is a family home intended for large summer gatherings, safely and beautifully located off the Old Cabot Trail but within walking distance of the new Cabot Trail, the harbour and the village. You can swim in the harbour as we do or at the beach in Cheticamp. In front of the house is a trail which takes you down to the beach for beach combing walks. Every window has a beautiful view of the sea or the mountains. I plan on renting it for a couple of months each year to defray the expenses. In the basement storage, you can find a paddle board, a rowing skiff, life jackets and walking sticks. There is a village co-op store at the harbour about two kilometers away and a much larger store in Cheticamp about ten kilometers, north. You can find out more about me by googling Clive Doucet.
