Loved my stay at the Maven Gypsy! Right from he start, we were welcomed warmly and taken care of. The cottages are clean and comfortable (and you can hear the ocean!) I would recommend this B and B to anyone who is traveling through Cape Breton. Beautiful beach across the road that is accessible at all times.

We are still on a one-week trip to the East Coast and countless times a day we reminisce about our incredible stay at the Maven Gypsy. We were lucky enough to enjoy cottage 3 which was incredibly clean, warm and cozy. As a bonus we also got to enjoy the company and comfort of the B&B's main house, stopping in... More

During our two night stay we had a fantastic experience at the Maven Gypsy. Our hosts went out of their way to accommodate our needs, were exceptionally friendly and helpful and were genuinely kind individuals. Our room was exactly what was advertised and what we expected. We couldn't have asked for more! To top it off, Kevin makes a FANTASTIC... More

We arrived after a lovely day of exploring the Cape Breton Highlands Park, doing lots of hiking and looking forward to a hot shower and a restful evening, and were somewhat disappointed. The host was not available and had written notes on a whiteboard about who was in which room or cabin. Another couple was waiting and had already checked... More

Four of us stayed at the Maven Gypsy, in rooms 3 and 4. The rooms were clean and spacious, and it felt like we were just visiting someone's home. Kevin is a wonderful host, letting us tour the kitchen and providing us with snacks as we relaxed in the breakfast area with some beer the evening we arrived. Breakfast was... More

Our second stay at the Maven Gypsy located on the Cabot Trail, completed the Cape Breton experience of friendly and sociable folks. Kevin, the Manager and JP the owner, presented clean, comfortable rooms, full breakfast, and a tour of grounds. Good value for the cost and pleasant hospitality.

Cabin's were very nice, they include everything you would want (shampoo, soap, pots and pans, coffee grinds, utensils). Beds were small but comfy, and the space is used really well. The ocean is a 3 minute walk away. The host, Kevin, was amazing. Delivered flowers as a welcome, hosted a campfire and invited all to come out, made breakfast in... More

My boyfriend was working in the area and his work booked the accommodation, so we weren't sure what to expect, but we really enjoyed our time at the Maven Gypsy. Kevin and JP were wonderful, funny, and kind. We enjoyed the chickens and quails, and Kevin makes a wonderful breakfast! My boyfriend had to leave for work at 5am and... More

We stayed in cabin #4, beautifully constructed, well-insulated, super comfortable beds, all the necessities! Hosts are very sweet and there in an instant if there's anything you want or need. Breakfast was divine, lovingly prepared using local and homemade foods. Excellent value. Highly recommend!
