We live in Northern California but fell in love with Cape Breton and bought land outside Mabou several years ago. We have planted apples and are planning to build a house as soon as we can, for now we have a trailer and we built a shed for the tractor. We spend as much time as we can there, it is beautiful summer, fall and winter! We will be the Cape Breton Cider Mill someday, the apples will start producing soon. We agree with everything you have said about Cape Breton, the people are fantastic, we have never met a rude soul; the scenery is spectacular, the beaches are some of the best we have ever been to, the water is so warm in the summer, much warmer than our ocean in California. It is like a secret gem that nobody realizes is there!  Cape Breton is amazing. We may have to get our house built this summer so we can move in November!
