Located in a quiet neighborhood but close to all attractions and within walking distance of downtown Sydney, this is the perfect place to stay. The hosts are so friendly and welcoming, and Connie is an absolute fountain of information! The house is charmingly furnished with antiques and one can see the TLC the owners give to the home. The breakfasts... More

We are new to B&B's and were a little hesitant about the experience. Rick and Connie made us feel welcomed right away and offered us much help in planning out our trip. The hydrangea room where we stayed was nice and has its own ensuite. We would recommend this place to family and friends.

Had the pleasure of staying at Connie and Rick's delightful home July10th this year for 3 nights. From the minute we walked into the dramatic hallway we felt at home and in good hands. We stayed in the Wedgewood room which was not the biggest of rooms but it was cosy, clean and full of charm. Breakfast at the big... More

Very comfortable, clean and a gourmet breakfast. Hosts, Connie and Rick, are welcoming. Breakfast provides opportunities for interesting conversation between guests and hosts . They are knowledgable and give good suggestions for travel in the area. Easy walking distance to downtown and dinner. A good place to stay in Sydney!

Definitely paradise... My first visit to Nova Scotia and my first stay at a B&B. Sydney was snow covered, winds were blowing but I have never felt so warm and comfortable. Connie and Rick are very knowledgable hosts. Their beautiful home, delicious breakfasts and conversations all added to my experience. I am already looking forward to retuning to Sydney where...

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

A Paradise Found B&B is the perfect place to stay while visiting Sydney. Connie and Rick were wonderful hosts, very knowledgeable, caring and entertaining. We stayed for 10 days and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Connie is a wonderful cook, every breakfast meal was beautifully presented and delicious with interesting conversation around the table.
