Friendly hosts, clean and cozy room, a well-stocked shared kitchen (Including delicious homemade muffins!) and a great location about halfway around the Cabot Trail. All for a good price as well! Would recommend!

Brian met us at the door and showed us (2couples) to our rooms. Rooms were clean, refrigerator was stocked. We immediately felt comfortable and at ease. I would recommend this B and B to any one looking for a place in Pleasant Bay.

Remember this is a B&B, not an Inn. It is small and quaint but very clean with everything one needs to relax and refuel. The bed was comfortable and the shared kitchen has everything needed to be at home. A deck out front is ideal for a glass of wine. The price was the best of our trip - by... More

Located on the Cabot Trail close to some of the most popular trails in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, this lovely B & B offers a more peaceful atmosphere than do accommodations in the nearby congested Cheticamp. Owners Elizabeth and Brian instantly make guests feel at home. The attractive sitting area and kitchen/dining room provide plenty of space to offset... More

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

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
