Based on the pictures I have seen, I was expecting this B&B to be special but I was still amazed at how beautifully furnished his whole house was. I wished my house looked as nice! We felt very pampered. If you are ever going to be in Sydney, definitely go and stay at the Weary Gardener. I only wish we... More

The Weary Gardener B&B is in an excellent location in Sydney. Vince is charming and breakfast delicious. Easy walking to the boardwalk and restaurants. Thanks, Vince...next time we'll definitely stay longer!

Certainly not "weary", host Vince prepares a fine breakfast and has much to offer in traveling tips and just good ol' conversation. The gardens are splendid, and our room (Frost) looked down on the back one. The mattress is great (a comfy bed is important to my back). The upstairs "parlor" is a most pleasant place to sit and read... More

The Weary Gardener is an outstanding B&B when traveling in Cape Breton. My wife and I stayed for 5 days while attending the Celtic Colours Festival. Our host, Vince, even stayed up late for us to arrive on our first night, greeting us as if he'd known us forever. The room, The Burns Suite, was beautifully appointed and ultra-clean. It... More

My wife and I stayed four nights at the Weary Gardener B&B. It was the best accommodations on our 30 day trip to the Maritimes. We arrived early, however right from the first knock on the door Vince made us feel right at home. The room and ensuite was outstanding, and very clean. We also had a lounge upstairs to... More

My husband & I and friends spent 2 night s here in September. We were treated royally in every way. One of our friends was ill and had to stay there during the day, which was not a problem. The rooms were beautifully decorated, the garden was obviously well loved and we were made to feel very much at home.... More

I highly recommend this B & B. Vince was an amazing host for our trip to Cape Breton. We used this as our base and did day trips from here. The pictures of the house do not do it justice! The garden is simply breathtaking, the home is so inviting and the decor is so tastefully done...and the breakfasts were... More

Vince is a great host. He put us at ease in his home. He gave us many suggestions of places to eat and roads to take which made it obvious he knew the town. His beautiful gardens made the home wonderful to stay in. The house looks like it has been recently renovated and has been done well. We were... More

We absolutely LOVED our stay at this fabulous, well appointed Bed & Breakfast , where breakfast was truly a delight, the decor was outstanding, the gardens supurb, and everything immaculately clean! It was was very best B&B we encountered during our two week, 3,400 mile vacation! The B&B's gardener should be weary, as the gardens are outstanding. However, Vince could... More

This bed and breakfast was fabulous - you walk up to the house through beautifully kept flower gardens and then into the house which is richly appointed with antique treasures all found by the owner who is very knowledgeable about all of the items in the house. He is also very friendly. The rooms (there are two) each have a... More
