Chose this location as it was close to get to whale watching boats. The best thing about this place was the breakfast. The owner is really nice. The cons: they don't have central air. My room was so hot I had to leave the window open. The problem was the winds were so strong they were blowing the curtains around... More

We had an outstanding stay at Highland Breeze/Gulf Breeze B & B. Anna, the owner, was very hospitable and willing to do anything to make our stay spectacular. Our room was awesome, clean and perfect. A 2 minute walk behind the house got us to a cliff overlooking the ocean. Magnificent. The hot tub was an added bonus after a... More

Came for our 25th anniversary trip to Cape Breton. Due to mixup, Anna the hostess was not here and we waited around over an hour to get into our room ( no one was at the house). All was made right and the room (Grand Anse) was nice sized garden level room with private bath and whirlpool. Unfortunately, it is... More

We stayed in the main building. The bedroom was a bit small, and some small details of maintenance needed attention. But what a friendly place this is! Came into the kitchen in the evening when the hostess, Anna, was cooking and was treated to great conversation and muffins. In the morning, there were 19 for breakfast. As I was up... More

I have nothing but good things to say about the Highland Breeze! The scenery is beautiful! Very convenient location, about half way around the Cabot Trail, and just off the main road very easy to find. Hot tub and pool on site for guest use was great - it was a chilly night so we made use of the hot... More

Stayed here a few days ago. The owner was so very friendly and welcoming. Room wasn't ready but she pointed us in the direction of the local whale centre. Room was big and comfortable and very clean. Great location from national park and in centre of pleasant bay

The host and owner of Highland Breeze puts her heart and soul into operating this B&B and it shows. First of all, I have a family of 5 and we planned a late July trip late in the high season where pretty much everything was booked up. Anna was extremely accommodating to us and found a suitable arrangement for all... More

Uniqueness of this B&B lies in the warm and inspiring personality of its owner Anna Moore. Great connections to local attractions, food and experiences. Wonderful storyteller who unselfishly spends her time entertaining her guests whom she treats like family. Fabulous cook providing delicious home cooked breakfasts and evening desserts which welcome one after a hard day of outdoor activity.

We had a wonderful 3 days with Anna at the Highland Breeze. To say that the breakfasts were good does her an injustice. You eat in her kitchen along with everyone else - the food just keeps coming. Bacon, sausages, eggs, french toast, hot cinnamon rolls, baking powder biscuits, coffee, tea and so on. All delicious. Anna is a wonderfully... More

We stayed at the Highland Breeze B&B in the cottage in August 2015 and we had a mixed reaction. We got there at 1pm and chanced our arm to see if our room was ready which it wasn't - totally understandable so we went away on a drive and came back a few hours later and it still wasn't ready....
