After reading all the great reviews, I was not surprised at how nice this place was. All the previous wonderful comments are true. Heather was great and very accommodating to our needs, the inn is close to the ferry terminal, and breakfast was wonderful. We stayed both on our way up and our way back and had two different rooms,... More

This was our first time staying at a B&B. Heather is a charming hostess! Beginning with having to change our reservation due to a change in Marine Atlantic ferry's schedule and ending with our breakfast, it was a wonderful experience. We were warmly greeted and shown to our room. Heather also gave us advice as to places to go for... More

Location was great especially if taking the ferry. Room was fine, sleep was good noise was not an issue, bed comfy. Breakfast a solid B+. Orientation was a bit long. Good recommendations on where to eat!

The décor is somewhat old and tired, and the building feels more like a boarding house than a typical B&B, but the hostess was warm and welcoming and the price was good. Expect a bit of a confusion finding the location when getting off the ferry from Newfoundland, but even with detour you'll be at your "home for the evening"... More

I know we are challenged directionally and have tried to get signage through Marine Atlantic, the municipality, the province and the federal gov't but were unsuccessful. Since the layout at the terminal is changing we have put our efforts on hold. As to tired, it is I who is really tired because I had so many wonderful people this year,... More

This is what you want from a B&B. Heather was an excellent host and provided us with a warm greeting, good conversation at breakfast, and just a good warm welcome feeling. Bedrooms were comfortable, and the breakfast area has ample room. Heather schedules the breakfast serving times to avoid traffic jams in the morning, and that seemed to work pretty... More

We stayed for 1 night and would stay again. It was in the heat of summer and the air conditioner had just been installed. We were quite warm all night which resulted in a lack of sleep. Found out in the morning that the air conditioner was sitting inside of the window with huge gaps around it, not allowing the... More

Sorry about the air conditioning. You are right it did have the gaps and I am working on fixing. Lost my maintenance person so had to install the best I could. Hope to be better prepared next time. More

Had the pleasure of staying with Heather for three weeks whilst attending Maritime Drilling School and can only say great things about the experience, I would highly recommend and was very sad to leave. Heather is really friendly and very helpful with nothing being too much trouble, the rooms are clean and very comfortable, WiFi works well! I don't think... More

W. I will miss seeing your smiling face before classes in the morning and after your hard day of training. My off season long term stays always result in a special friendship and I will look forward to the day you bring your overseas friends for a visit to Cape Breton. All the best in the future. More

The location is great for those taking the ferry. Our challenge was to find a pet free B & B and this was it. From here we wandered North Sydney, ate at the Lobster Pound, drove to Glacé Bay, Englishtown, Louisbourgh and more. Heather was very friendly with lots of advice about things to do and where to eat. The... More

It really is amazing how so many people can be in one location and make relatively little noise. It is also nice to be in a location where my visitors can stay central and travel out to various sites from here. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope our paths will cross again. More

This is the best place to stay in North Sydney. Heather is very organized and went out of her way to make sure we had a comfortable bed per our preferences. She was very helpful in planning our trip on the Cabot Trail. Breakfast was very nice. The room was great, although it could use some place to put luggage... More

Thank you for taking the time to share. The folding table is the luggage stand but you have given me an idea and if time permits this year, I think I will see if I can develop some kind of folding rack to add to the little table. I did so much enjoy your visit with me and I hope... More

Always nice to have people who stay for a number of days. The trouble is everyone leaves me and I often feel like family is going away. I will look forward to the time we get together again. More
