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

The Weary Gardener B & B is vastly understated by its modest street visage. After a cell phone call just an hour before, we were welcomed by a smiling Vince at the front door. Our newly-appointed room was very tastefully done with ultra-modern fixtures, hardwood floors and a very comfortable bed. The Weary Gardener would be absolutely perfect for two... More

The bedroom and private bathroom was beautifully decorated as was the whole interior and exterior of this B&B. I loved having a common sitting area inside as well as a balcony where you can sit, read and enjoy the lovely, quiet neighbourhood. Our host, Vince, was exceptionally friendly and helpful and made the most delicious breakfasts. The front and back... More

While waiting for the water in the Keurig to heat up so that I could have a pre-bedtime decaf I noticed on the bookshelf in the sitting room a selection that was entitled Fine Art. That title described for me all the aspects of this B and B. The decor and appointments were well thought out and the furniture fit... More
