Keller Williams Select Realty site - 11 Derby Point

Presidents Roosevelt, Cleveland and Taft, Sir Charles Tupper, Prince George V, Alexander Graham Bell, Helen Keller, to name a few, slept here! Previously the Grand Narrows Hotel, circa 1887, this property has hosted many of the great thinkers of the 19th & 20th centuries. Standing prominently on the eastern shores of the Barra Strait on the Bras d'Or Lakes, this grand three storey structure (Second Empire) was built as an elegant 15 bedroom hotel in 1887. It has undergone many renovations and updates over the years, yet maintaining the original character. Currently 6 bedrooms and 5 1/2 baths, with a mostly renovated 3rd level - 5 bedrooms and 5 roughed in bathrooms. Across the road is your own private beach on the Bras d’Or Lake, with boat moorage at a community wharf, a few steps away (adjoining your beach). For more historical & general information, go to – a quote from that website, “Two original Guest Registers dating from the 1880's contain Alexander Graham Bell's signature more often than any. Several others that he was associated with such as Helen Keller, whom he befriended, often traveled with Bell. Local people could recall seeing Ms. Keller and her trusted companion a golden lab, swimming the waters of the Barra Strait.” Most furnishings INCLUDED  in purchase price.  Itemized list to be agreed upon by both parties.
