Beautiful location overlooking the harbor in Bay St. Lawrence. The owners could not be more welcoming and helpful. Clean large rooms and music on Saturday evenings. No restaurant nearby but a local place delivers.

I have stayed at Burton's once, but am intimately familiar with the place. My Grandmother was born on the farm next to Burton's, and I grew up going up every summer. It is remote and quiet (except for the wind) and the views never stop. The sea is before you, the mountain behind. You won't regret a stay here, and... More

This is an excellent place to stay, and economical, too. You can easily see the ocean and, if the weather is right, watch the sun slip into the water. The room is very clean and the bathroom is excellent. Television, comfy bed, big kitchen and breakfast set out in the office every morning. Bring groceries, as there isn't a store... More

Burtons Sunset oasis motel is a beautiful place to forget about your busy life. Nested at the top of a cliff, above spectacular Bay St. Lawrence Cape Breton, just the air will revive you. A five minute walk from your immaculate motel room, brings you to the harbour where you can go whale watching and short distance more from that,... More

The location is beautiful with great views. We spent 2 nights here, we truly enjoyed it and have no regrets. The room was very clean, functional and comfortable. The owners are friendly and were extremely helpful in helping us organize our excursions, we really appreciated that. We highly recommend!

A beautiful, peaceful location with magnificent views. Accommodations were very nice, clean and comfortable hosted by Melvin and his wife who are very nice and friendly. They are concerned about one thing; that you enjoy your stay and have what you need. The overall atmosphere of our visit found us wanting to stay on or at least return again. Highly... More

We selected Burton's Sunset Oasis Motel as the second leg of our trip to Nova Scotia. We read it was the number one place to stay on Cape Breton and we were not disappointed. It exceeded our expectations in every way. The views were absolutely unforgettable. We took several walks and captured some of the most beautiful sunset pictures ever.... More

Absolutely THE best place to stay on Cape Breton. Located overlooking the fishing village of Bay St Lawrence and the atlantic ocean Burton"s Sunset Oasis is a 5 unit motel with kitchenettes in each unit. Incredibly friendly and helpful owners always have a smile for guests and were even kind enough to allow us to use their gas grill to... More

I made a reservation for next spring via the telephone. I asked for a confirmation email and was told they would send it right out. When I didn't get it on a few days I called again. They once again said they would send it. Again it never came. I called five times and it was always the same story.... More

We are so glad we chose to stay at Burton's Sunset Oasis in Bay St. Lawrence on our recent trip to Cape Breton. When we arrived and drove up to the motel, we were in awe at its perfect location atop a hill overlooking the cliffs and endless ocean. What a special place! Mel and Debbie work hard to make...
