We stayed 3 nights with Bill & Shirley at their beautiful home on Bras d'Or Lake and they made us feel more like family than guests. We stayed in their very spacious downstairs Celtic suite with a walk-out deck overlooking the lake. It even had steps right down to the shore! The breakfasts each morning were simply delightful with an... More

We stayed at Bryden Manon B & B for five nights early Aug. 2013. Such a comfortable, beautiful place with outstanding hosts, Bill and Shirley. Our breakfasts were healthy and delicious, could not have asked for more. We were pleased and would return if occasion arises. We would give this a five star rating! Thanks Shirley and Bill, you are... More

We have stayed at several bed and breakfasts and I must say this is the finest. This is not a business these people are doing it because they love to entertain and have company. Both Shirley and Bill are very well educated but were two of the nicest and down to earth people I have ever met. Giving them a... More

Bryden Manor is a large private home with 2 guest suites….a quiet oasis of acres overlooking Bras d’Or Lake. The home is modern, spotlessly clean, and beautifully furnished. We stayed 3 nights in the Celtic Suite which is extremely spacious. It includes a large sitting room with comfortable furniture and a big screen tv, a fully equipped kitchen, and separate... More

It was based on most of the comments on this site that we made a big decision to go B&B at the Dryden Manor. My wife was very reluctant and sceptical as she has never stayed at a B&B in all her travels. This was going to be a new experience for her, and what a pleasant and delightful one... More

Host Bill & Shirley made us feel at home the second we entered their home for a 2 nights stay. The breakfast was fabulous and plentiful. Lodging was comfortable and quiet in their little isolated paradise. The location of the B&B is centered to most Cape Breton attractions. I would strongly recommend this B&B for a visit to this magnificent... More

If you only want to stay one night don't bother looking into this accomodation. After researching dates available, emailing, planning, when we went to reserve we found they only accept 2 night bookings although it doesn't say that on the website (Shirley said she should add it and I have to agree that should be on the site). We also... More

In response to your review, I would like to thank you for bringing to my attention that our web site did not include a minimum stay of two nights. This has now been corrected. I am also "disappointed" that you were unable to stay with us as I am sure you would have enjoyed your stay just as much as... More

My wife and I are seasoned travellers and have recently returned from a fall trip to Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada. We stayed at the Bryden Manor Bed and Breakfast for the entire four-day stay on Cape Breton Island. We could not have asked for a more superb and centrally-located accommodation for our visit. The Bryden Manor is located... More

Before this trip, neither Paul or I had stayed at a B & B. Due to our experience with Bill and Shirley, the Brydens, we will likely never consider other accommodations while traveling! We cannot say enough about the location, the wonderful suite we occupied for three nights, and the incredible food! Above all, the genuine hospitality that we were... More

If I return to Nova Scotia, I would LOVE to stay here again. We had a fantastic "suite" with refrigerator, microwave, living area with huge flat-screen TV, very nice bathroom, and a perfect bedroom with queen size bed. This home is situated on 57 beautiful wooded acres with access to the lake. It was very peaceful here! There is a... More
