Area Data: Baddeck Inlet, Baddeck River Estuary
Jonathan Jones, considered the first settler in Victoria County knew good land when he saw it and upon arriving in Cape Breton in 1784 he applied for a grant for 1000 acres of land at the mouth of the Baddeck River. Jonathan was an American Loyalist, who fled the US after the US gained independence in 1783. One of the "Associated Loyalists", numbering 140, who sailed to Cape Breton in three vessels under the command of Colonel Peters, Captain Jonathan Jones and Mr. Robertson.
Nyanza Bay is a bay on the Bras d'Or Lakes located just 10 Km west of Baddeck. The bay ( 4 km long and 1.5 km wide) is the estuary for of two of the main rivers that flow from the Cape Breton Highlands into the Bras d,Or Lakes. These two large rivers emptying into a small Bay makes Nyanza Bay a hot spot for bird watching. A number of bald headed eagles nests overlook the bay and eagles can be seen overhead or perched in a maple tree just about any time you pass by. Ducks, Canada geese, kingfishers, osprey, sea gulls, as well as your usually land birds make for constant activity outside the window. ( The owners of Rare Earth Venture could not resist the draw of this spot and moved to Jonathan's Landing about four years ago.)
The Bras d'Or lakes is a large inland sea connected to the ocean at three locations (Great Bras d'Or Channel, Little Bras d'Or Channel and a lock at St Peters). The Bras d'Or lakes are salt water and at sea level with over 1000 km of spectacular Bras d'Or Lakes water frontage.
The estuaries of the Baddeck River and Middle River are located at either end of the bay and are popular fishing spots. Nyanza Bay being salt water and at sea level and a bay on the Bras d'Or Lakes make for great fishing conditions. Ice fishing in the winter and spring fishing (as the ice breaks up) usually have you going home with something for the frying pan. Salmon and trout fishing on Baddeck and Middle River and their tributaries become the focus through the summer and fall. Try your hand at fly fishing or just walk the river banks. Less than 40 minute drive from Jonathan's Landing will get you on two other great fishing rivers - the Margaree and North River.
From Jonathan's Landing - Kayaks, canoes and small outboards will give you immediate access to the lower reaches of the Baddeck River including Cains Pond, Back Bay, Big Farm Pool, and miles of travel on various branches of the lower Baddeck River. Good fishing, great wildlife viewing in a safe, sheltered boating location - JONATHAN'S LANDING.
Jonathan's Landing lots are located at the head of Nyanza Bay and at the mouth of the Badddeck River.
All lots have a westerly exposure with some of the most beautiful sunsets in all of the east coast. The combination of Bras d'Or Lakes waterfrontage, Cape Breton hillside and setting sun make for an endless supply of sunset photos. (See our Rare Earth blog).
