First and foremost, I cannot say enough great things about the hosts, John & Janet, who are remarkably knowledgeable of the area despite having lived and worked in this area for many years. Their eagerness to point us in the right direction was so obvious! The building is like a combination museum and library and quite eclectic. Love the warmth... More

This Inn is a great choice for those wishing to stay at the top of the Cape. My sister and I visited July 3rd and 4th for two nights in Room 8. This room is a self catering apartment with kitchenette and air conditioning. When we were there it was very hot and humid (28+ degrees) and this room is... More

I found the Four Mile Beach Inn on Google and I knew it was exactly the kind of place we had been looking for. We wanted somewhere for three nights that we could use as a base to explore the northern area of Cape Breton and this lovely old house was the right answer. It has a great sense of... More

What a lovely old place! It's a wee bit off the beaten path, but that's kind of nice, too. The inn is set in an old general store, and the history of the place is still very much on display. Our room was cozy, clean and comfortable. John & Janet whipped up a very nice breakfast with freshly baked breads,... More

This Inn located 7 kms north of Cape North in Sugarloaf Village offers a value accommodation with its picturesque setting and the warmth of the owners, Janet and John who take great pride in the lengthy history of the building and amenities that match its structure. Our room was very comfortable and quiet and was a needed refuge after our... More

We stayed at the inn last night and we were sad to leave this morning. Janet and John were wonderful hosts- they welcomed us with open arms, told us the history of their inn and offered assistance with our further plans on the island. The room was quaint and it was unique as it was dressed up in old fashioned... More

We chose the Four Mile Beach Inn as our "base camp" for hiking the Cabot Trail and spent 3 nights in Room #1. John and Janet were very helpful throughout the reservation process (4 months prior to our planned vacation) and were warm and welcoming upon our arrival. They provided information about (and directions to) hiking locations and "must see"... More

Nice period building nicely situated at the top of the Cabot Trail (about half way) Big rooms with ensuites, but the place is a bit eclectic and maybe not for everyone. The Inn is not luxurious but very true to the period. Four Mile Beach is just up the road and is a lovely spot for a walk or picnic.... More

Nestled up north on Cape Breton Island is a wonderful getaway for those looking to escape the bustle of the city. Janet and John are warm and engaging and made our stay a memorable one. There's lots of things to do if adventure is your thing or if relaxing is what you like, that's the place for you. The house... More

My girlfriends and I stayed at the Four Mile Beach Inn in July 2012 and had a fabulous time. This Inn is so "real" and Janet and John were truly great hosts - providing us with personalized recommendations for hiking, whale watching and other outdoor activities. The breakfasts were superb. We enjoyed every minute of our 3 day stay. I... More
