We stayed here for just one night on our way up to the Cabot trail and really enjoyed the B&B. The owner was super friendly, room clean and spacious, and breakfast was fantastic. I would highly recommend staying here.

Spent the night at Duncreigan after three days of driving to reach Cape Breton Island. Steve, the owner, was fantastic. He is very friendly and personable; we thoroughly enjoyed talking with him. He wasn't completely booked, so he upgraded our room to the king suite overlooking the river. This is a beautiful two room suite, complete with everything you could... More

Best place to stay in Cape Breton! Steve and his family were wonderful hosts. Very friendly, genuine, sincere people. We were there in the shoulder season (not busy) and he gave us a free room upgrade. The room was huge, with lovely furnishings, and it had the most beautiful view of the lake. Breakfast was also wonderful, homemade blueberry pancakes... More

I had a wonderful stay at this quaint B and B over looking the water. The room was spacious and lovely and the inn keeper was exceptionally helpful and accomodating. A beautiful stop to stay on the Island!

We were in town for a family wedding and had most of the rooms occupied by family and friends so I got a chance to see most of the different rooms in the Inn. They had 8 rooms, some with water view, some with garden view. The morning breakfast offering was amazing! Great selection of hot and cold items made... More

This Inn is hidden gem amongst trees and gives you a great feeling just driving into the parking lot. We like the bed and breakfast feel to the place. It is only a small Inn with no dining except for the hot/cold breakfast. The breakfast was really good with fresh baked goods, fresh fruit, and your typical hot breakfast. The... More
