Connie and Rick were wonderful. They made sure we didn't get lost with Connie's easy to follow maps. Great conversations with them. Breakfast both mornings were delicious and the table looked beautiful. The rooms were clean and spacious. If you are travelling to Cape Breton their B andB is excellent. The Thomsons and the Hughes

We found this B&B on the Nova Scotia Provincial Tourism website, and are glad we decided to stay there. Rick and Connie were gracious hosts in their beautifully restored home with lovely wooden staircase and delightful accents. They are very knowledgeable and helpful with their suggestions for visiting the best attractions in the area, including maps and directions. I recommend... More

Rick and Connie Bowers own this fine establishment in Sydney, NS. My wife and three friends and I arrived on Friday, July 26 for a three day stay. We were the only guests for that period and our time there was most enjoyable. Each morning about 8:30, we gathered at the dining table for a wonderful creation from Connie's kitchen,... More

Thanks to Trip Advisor, we found this great B&B in Sydney, Cape Breton, complete with "Phoenix", the giant grey tabby cat who helps host. Connie and Rick were very helpful, offering suggestions in advance of our arrival of highlights near Sydney. One highlight was a good meal at the Miner's Museum followed by a concert performed by miners, "Men of... More

A Paradise Found is clean, beautiful, private and are hosted by very kind and helpful people, Connie and Rick. This is likely the best B & B I've ever stayed at. And breakfast of waffles and roasted grapefruit was YUM! We stayed in the Rose room and Rick and Connie were very accomodating. We arrived late and tired from the... More
