I had to find a place to break up my Cape Breton trip in two. Cape North seemed to be a natural stop, so, I found Country Haven. The price was right, with a cooked breakfast? I was sold. Upon arriving, the hosts were generally pleasant, but I could not say that they were very warm. The room was fine,... More

We had an excellent stay at this Bed & Breakfast. We had our own bathroom and it was very large, which was great to store all our suitcases (we travelled through Eastern Canada for a month :p). The bedroom was very clean and comfortable. It was a bit small, but there is a living room reserved for guests, with a... More

This is a great warm and friendly country BnB. Hosts Alfred and his wife were fun to talk to and are excellent hosts. No AC in the room, but it did filter in from the main living area. Opened the window in the mid-night and were fine with the breeze. Adjoined bathroom was spotless and very nice. Breakfast was scrambled... More

I can't complain and why would I. This home is spotless, the food was filling and tasty, the hosts were friendly and helpful and we were happy with our visit. A cup of tea and snack when we arrived, the use of the clothes line to dry out a few clothes we rinsed out and a game of cards on... More

The bed and breakfast itself was extremely clean. The rooms are nice and the location is wonderful with its proximity to the Cabot trail and so many wonderful places to go. The price is great, Overall, the best thing about this particular B and B is the wonderful hosts! Their knowledge of the area, friendliness, and helpfulness made our stay... More

Clean and welcoming. Great breakfast of scrambled eggs, bacon and toast. I also had a small yogurt. Coffee too, of course. Host and hostess extremely welcoming and so helpful on what to see in the area and where to get the best photos. Very comfortable stay, so quiet and peaceful, highly recommended. Perfect place to stay, half way around the... More

Country Haven Bed & Breakfast owned and operated by Alfred and Kathleen MacLeod was a wonderful experience. The accommodations are immaculate and the hospitality is top rated. Alfred and Kathleen are gracious, friendly and helpful. We were there early for the "season" and a lot of things were closed but were given helpful suggestions for sightseeing and dining. The area...

I've been staying at Country Haven every four weeks for the past six years, since my job takes me to Northern Cape Breton once a month. From the first time I walked through the door, this little B&B has felt like a "home away from home." Hosts Alfred and Kathleen are friendly and welcoming, and their home has a cozy... More

The Country Haven is along an unpaved road, just off the most northern section of the Cabot Trail Highway on Cape Breton Island. It's a pleasant property well away from other houses, with ample parking space within the grounds. White Birch room faces out onto the garden and car parking area, the property entrance by is there too, into a... More

Countryhaven, Owner at Country Haven Bed & Breakfast, responded to this review

Thank you for your kind words about our Bed & Breakfast. I always enjoy hearing the views of folks who stay at my B & B. I strive to accommodate everyone's needs; however, it isn't always possible. My wish is that guests would ask me for what they want when it is not readily supplied. I will do my utmost... More

We arrived late September to a welcome cup of tea and cakes. We were advised about eating options in the area and opted for local restaurant within 5 minutes walking distance so we could enjoy a glass of wine with the meal. Kathleen & Alfred proved to be extremely hospitable hosts and we spent a very pleasant evening chatting to... More
