Elizabeth and Brian were really friendly and helpful with information on local resources and Cabot Trail. Clean room with adequate facilities. Breakfast muffins were delicious. Would have no hesitation in staying again.

Probably our favourite place to stay in our time in Nova Scotia and sorry we were only there one night. From the outside The Popular B&B looks charming. The room was small and we had to leave some of our stuff in the car but it was clean and perfectly appointed and the bed was very comfortable. The do it... More

We stayed 2 nights in the month of June at Elizabeth and Brian's cosy Poplar B&B. Excellent value. The room with private shower may seem small, but it has all the comfort needed and is very clean and nicely decorated. Self serve breakfast (with the best home made muffin from Elizabeth) may not be a cooked one, but it has... More

A most enjoyable place to stay. Fresh muffins were at the ready, as was fresh fruit and all the breakfast items one could want. The sitting room had back issues of The Cape Breton Magazine, and this was a lovely added touch. The whole house sparkles with cleanliness, and Elizabeth was wonderfully welcoming and gave tips on various trails and... More

We spent 2 nights at the Poplar, and had a wonderful time. The town was lovely, Elizabeth was welcoming, friendly and gave us great directions to an unforgettable cliff side hike. Seriously, this lady knows the hidden gems in the area, take the time to really listen to what she has to say. The room was modern, clean and spacious:... More

We found the Poplar B&B almost by chance. We were doing the Cabot trail and heading to White Point and couldn't find a place to stay there. So we decided to find a place at Pleasant Bay and good thing we did. Elizabeth and Brian are very nice hosts and gave us some good tips on hikes to do. They... More

Stayed here in May 2014. The room was small but very nice. It had been well-thought out and had everything we could have wanted. Very quiet. The owner, Elizabeth, suggested several trails and other sights to see on our trip. Would recommend this B&B to others

A perfect retreat, home away from home. The small common area with kitchen, table and lounge is perfect. Just like you are at home having morning breakfast planning and getting ready for you day. Elizabeth is an amazing host. She won;t bombard you with information unless you ask. Exactly as we like it. But make sure you ask for the... More

We stayed 4 nights in June 2013 (it seems original review rejected - probably too complimentary!) Elizabeth and Brian were very welcoming, helpful throughout and gave us a lot of information about the area. This facility is excellent in every respect - we could not fault it. It is also situated in a beautiful coastal village set in magnificent countryside.... More

My Husband and I stayed at this bed and breakfast during our road trip through Cape Breton Island this fall. Situated midway around the Cabot trail, the location is a perfect place to stop and rest. Although the house is located right on the road through town, it is very quiet at night and a good place to catch up... More
