My husband and I stayed with Rick and Connie for the Celtic Colours festival this fall. They made us feel that we were friends who had come to visit them. Conversation after each outstanding breakfast lasted over an hour. Our hosts were very good at making 6 strangers comfortable at our first meeting. Rick and Connie know the island very... More

We found A Paradise Found at TripAdvisor when on a whim we planned a quick trip to Sydney. We didn't have the chance to think what we wanted to do when in the town, so we simply headed there. Coming from the US, our GPS didn't provide Canadian directions, which was a big drag. In an email Rick had forewarned... More

We made the right choice! This first trip to Cape Breton for Celtic Colours was a tremendous success, much in part to Rick and Connie at A Paradise Found. Six nights of good sleep, 6 delicious breakfasts, intriguing and informative conversation made us feel right at home here. They even invited us for Canadian Thanksgiving dinner, which was a wonderful... More

We can highly recommend this... More

We entered A Paradise Found as strangers and left as friends. Rick and Connie were amazing and gracious hosts, suggesting places and routes, and recommending restaurants. Their experience and tips allowed us to make the most of our time. They helped us to get tickets for a concert that was one of the highlights of our trip to Cape Breton.... More

An Exceptional B&B experience! Connie and Rick are fabulous hosts! Every breakfast was a taste delight and an amazing experience in itself. We always looked forward to the great conversations over breakfast. Connie is the ultimate tour guide, highlighting on maps the routes and places of interest in the Sydney area. Thank-you Connie and Rick for our wonderful stay with... More

Quaint and delightful B & B. Rick and Connie provided us with a map of the Cabot Trail annotated with notes based on their personal knowledge of restaurants, sights to see, hikes, side roads to take, etc. We relied on it the whole way. They gave us amazing tips about Louisburg, a great short hike nearby, the Miners Museum, restaurants.... More

Room ok. Breakfast, service, support, friendliness, all first rate! We got great recommendations for places to go, things to see and restaurants to try. We would stay here again without a doubt and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and friendly place to stay.

From our arrival to departure a week later, Paradise Found exceeded the experiences of prior years as B&B guests. Rick and Connie are hands-on hosts. We felt like pampered favorite family members throughout our stay and Paradise Found set the tone for our excursions around beautiful Cape Breton. Breakfast time is a grand way to begin the day with Connie's... More
