Stayed in Brian and Elizabeth's cabin next to their home. It was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for a nice breakfast before we started our day. Brian was very helpful with information on the Pleasant Bay area and things to see and do. Excellent host and a great place to stay!

Pleasant Bay is a great place to stay for slow-paced travel along the Cabot Trail, and the Poplar B&B is a lovely little house conveniently located on the way. Brian received us very friendly (although otherwise there was not much interaction with the hosts - so it feels more like an inn). The room was rather small, but clean and... More

Brian and Elizabeth really make this B&B what it is. In addition to both being born and raised on Cape Breton Island, they both have a warm and genuine way with their guests and directed us to hikes and attractions that we otherwise might not have found. The main inn has two guest rooms each with a private bath. Be... More

Innkeepers were just lovely before we arrived. Welcoming and helpful. We really only stayed a night and we're hardly there. But the room was immaculate, home lade muffin was delicious. Would recommend highly.

Run by friendly locals, Elizabeth and Brian, who know the area well and gave excellent advice on hikes and things to do in the Cape Breton national park. The room (Mountain Sunrise) was cozy, clean and cheerfully decorated, and the bathroom is small, but efficient and clean. We didn't spend much time in our room so we were fine with... More

This is an excellent B&B as the hosts are friendly and informative but you have your own space and don't feel like you're in the middle of someone's home. The room was very large and tastefully decorated, and the ensuite had a fantastic shower. The bed was very comfortable, and there is a kitchen and a sitting room for the... More

Great hosts! They told us everything we needed to know about the area and what sites there were to see. Breakfast was superb and we wouldn't change a thing :) we would stay there again if we were to come back!

The owners are very pleasant and welcoming. The house is well set up, with coffee and breakfast items available in the main area. The rooms are nice -- tastefully decorated and have private bathrooms -- though they are quite small (we could fit both of our suitcases, albeit they are huge, but had to be careful to get around). Lovely... More

My wife and I were cycling the Cabot Trail and this was our second night's stay. The house had been set up very well for B+B, with a living and breakfast preparation area separate from the rest of the house. You were able to help yourself to the (continental) breakfast - which included very tasty banana choc chip muffins (home... More

Very friendly and welcoming hosts! They were helpful with everything we needed and suggested a great place to eat in the area. Breakfast was self-serve, simple but plentiful. We liked how coffee, tea, and water were always available and felt free to help our selves.The room we got was on the cozy side, but that's a non-issue for a short... More
