I don't understand the critical reviews of this inn. Yes, it is out of the way, but that is a big part of its charm. If you want to be near town, stay in town. The location is special, with great views of Lake Ainslie from the front rooms. The building is admirable, and Keith and Elizabeth keep it well... More

We called a number of hotels/inns in the area the day of and after having some completly full or not quite what we were looking for we called the Tulloch Inn. We spoke with the female owner and she was not very warm it friendly which is... More

All of the rooms are very large and comfortable. Lots of hot water for the shower. If you are physically challenged, there is a room on the first level with two beds.

We just returned from a night at the Tulloch. It is our second time here, and once again, we left totally refreshed and impressed. The property is serene, welcoming, and the perfect base to use to explore the area. The rooms are cozy, comfy, and spotless. Our room opened up to a veranda that overlooked the garden and a view...

We stayed in the very big and luxurious McDonald room here which had the most amazing view out back that overlooked the lake. It was super clean place (being a fragrance-free house) and the bed was super comfy. Breakfast was great - delicious omelettes and pancakes - all served on beautiful silverware! Owner Keith was a lovely and attentive host... More

The atmosphere was a little too upset and found hostess a bit uptight and detached. Not very naturlly relaxed at all. One long run of slippery stairs to get up and downstairs...watch your step and forget this place if you are having health issues. Rooms are super bright at very early morning...don't bother trying to sleep in. Won't go there... More

My sisters, their husbands and my husband and daughter just spent 2 nights at the Tulloch Inn. It is very difficult to find anything available in early May in the Lake Ainslie, Baddeck area but the Inn was open for business. The owners, Elizabeth and Keith, were very accommodating for our family who were in town for our mother's memorial... More

Booked ahead of time as the website showed a fantastic place. When I initially arrived after a wending route through a lonely and broken back route, I was greeted (at what seemed the front door but is actually the back kitchen door) by an unpleasant and rude old woman who'd darted her finger to the actual entrance and quickly shooed...

We and another couple stayed with Keith and Elizabeth for two days this past month. We had the Ross room, a large room with French doors opening onto a nice big balcony overlooking the lake. And what a beautiful lake it is. We went to bed on a lake and woke up on an ocean with the white caps so... More

Very remote but worth the drive. The hosts are super friendly. Food was amazing, and all locally grown in Elizabeth's backyard garden! Comfortable and clean room inside of an impeccably maintained house in the country. Breakfast is by reservation, so don't forget to sign up for a time slot. Beautiful landscaping.
