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

Our room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious. Also, Heather (the owner) is one of the friendliest, most generous people I've met. If you have a day to spare, drive out to the Fortress of Louisbourg. It's a truly memorable place.

We were pleased with this choice - very home like and well located. Great for long walks along the harbour and walking distance to large chain stores for any supplies. Our room came with a sofa bed. Though the Inn may feel a bit cramped if every room was occupied - none were when we were there. We had to... More

Thank you for taking the time to share. It is really surprising how I can have a full house and still seem like there is almost no one here unless the guests gather on one of the porches and have a gabfest (one of my favorite times). One table does get close for breakfast but it all seems like part... More

Everything went smoothly - from taking the reservation to guiding me to the B&B after I got lost Room was clean, comfie and ample size. Private bath was clean and spacious.

We stayed there waiting for the Nfld ferry. Only minutes away. Heather was friendly and welcoming. She runs a very clean and comfortable experience. The experience was better than the other motels we stayed in Breakfast was great! Her B&B is highly recommended! Try a bit of East Coast hospitality!

We stay one night on our way to Newfoundland. Heather was very nice and helpful. The room was very comfortable . Heather recommended the Black Spoon for supper it was great.

I had responded earlier but I guess I hit the wrong buttons because it did not get posted. I am glad your husband was able to enjoy the extra eggs and perhaps you will join me another morning when the menu is French toast or scrambled eggs. Because it is not a commercial kitchen the meal needs to be chefs... More

We spent 1-night after touring the park. The place is not elegant but it is more than satisfactory especially when you consider the price. I don't think any place else in the area has more to offer. Heather was free with helpful advise recommending the Black Spoon Bistro which is a pleasant surprise for North Sydney. Eat early though as... More

Friendly and clean. Close to the main road and ferry. Heather is very nice! There are several places to eat dinner nearby but NOTE: they all stop serving food around 8 pm so if your getting into town late you should eat while you can!
