This is one of the most interesting places we have ever stayed in. The old general store was fun to look around in as were the other common rooms. I like the fact that much of the house is true to the period. The hosts are friendly and knowledgeable. Breakfast was wonderful out on the deck, with freshly baked scones... More

The owners of this place are really wonderful folks, and obviously strive to maintain its authentic old general store character. That said, I have come to base my hotel/inn choices largely upon the information on Tripadvisor, and so for the benefit of other travelers like me, it is with some sadness that I feel I must say that the very,...

We've stayed in many B&Bs and small inns around the world, but this is one of the most charming. The Four Mile Beach is a classic heritage inn, chock full of Cape Breton culture, folk art and music. We spent 2 nights in early August, our hosts John and Janet were extremely warm and welcoming. They were quick to share... More

It is an unusual place, which was the general store many years ago. Has not been updated much at all. The owners were very helpful with places to eat and see in the area. The place they sent us for dinner was outstanding! They told us about all the great places to visit and hikes to do. Our bed was... More

This is a great place to stay. It could be used as a home base for touring the north part of Cape Breton or just for a night while travelling. The hosts were very informative and helped us with sites to see and place for supper.

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.
