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

Paradise Found was a real "find". It was an ideal place to stay in Sydney. The hosts were gracious, knowledgeable, informed and happy to give information, directions, suggestions and opinions. All of those were very much appreciated. The room was comfortable, the bed was great, the service terrific and food fabulous! Rick and Connie and wonderful hosts. Connie's annotated map... More

We stayed two nights at A Paradise Found B&B as part of a tour of Nova Scotia this summer. It was one of our best overall stays. The B&B is ideally centrally located for easy walking access for an evening stroll to the waterfront in Sydney, and is a short drive of about 20 minutes to Fort Louisbourg and quick... More

This was our first visit to Nova Scotia and we stayed at Paradise Found for three days, after having had very positive experiences at three other very nice B&Bs. The interior of this house is gorgeous, the bedrooms large and comfortable, and the breakfasts excellent. But what makes it outstanding is the hospitality of the host and hostess, Rick and... More

We had a great experience here. The hosts were helpful and friendly, and the enormous cat, Phoenix, was extremely welcoming and enjoys company a great deal. The room was clean, spatious and comfortable; the real highlight was the fresh snow crab benedict for breakfast. Delicious.

We spent 6 days at "A Paradise Found B&B" (on Milton Street!) over Christmas this year while we were visiting family in Sydney. We stayed in the Rose Room, which was cozy, bright and spacious with a topnotch mattress on the king-sized bed . There was also a lovely, deep soaker tub with shower in the en suite. The breakfasts... More

Great room with a comfortable bed. The only change that I would make is with regards to the hand held shower, unless you are 5'10" + you need a stool to reach it. Great breakfast with a relaxing atmosphere.

We're newby's to B&B's, but Rick and Connie made us feel very welcome, and we engaged in excellent conversations. Room was clean and welcoming as was our bathroom. Breakfast took me outside my comfort zone which I welcomed. I had the compulsive urge to do the breakfast dishes though, but I was shood away. Great Hosts

Excellent and helpful hosts and a convenient location for downtown Sydney, albeit a twenty minute walk. We enjoyed a well equipped room of moderate size with a comfortable king sized bed. The room was quiet and free from road noise. The bathroom was excellent, offering a bath / shower option with plenty of space for toiletries etc. Breakfast offered interesting,... More
