If you drive a clean car, be aware that the driveway and parking lot are not paved and expect mud all over the place when it rains. Beautiful room (but a very noisey place regarding traffic as The Birches is located right on the main road.) BTW - second floor rooms are only accessible by a very large staircase- no... More

Many thanks to Barb and Larry for creating what we feel is the best place to stay in the Maritimes. The staff, Amy and Alisha (who makes the best cappuccino in the world) go out of their way to make you feel at home. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. We ate in the dining room twice and the... More

We recently stayed 2 nights in the McPherson Suite and from the moment we walked in we were treated royally. The Inn is lovely, the huge suite was sumptuous with a comfy bed, tons of pillows, big TV with satellite and balcony with chairs. Breakfast was nice, fruit, yogurt, cereal, homemade muffins, scrambled eggs and lots bread/bagels to toast. I... More

My husband surprised me with a visit to the Birches at Ben Eoin. Our hosts Barb and Larry were kind, genuine and attentive to our needs. The inn is located on the Bras D'or lakes in Cape Breton. Our room was perfect, the service and friendliness even better. Don't forget to golf The Lakes as well. I would highly recommend... More

. Last year we ventured out to Nova Scotia to celebrate an anniversary. The Ben Eoin Country Inn was chosen for it's close proximity to the golf course, and family members. We were greeted by the friendly staff, and within minutes we felt as though we were at home. They did an amazing job of getting to know each of... More

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at the Birches at Ben Eoin in July 2013. The inn is located across from the lake, making for a beautiful view from our suite. We purchased one of the packages, and included was a beautiful and spacious suite and a delicious dinner. Our suite was decorated beautifully, and had a wonderful... More

Our company just held their 3rd Christmas staff party at The Birches - and, once again, they did an amazing job. Our group of 22 arrived to beautiful, cozy, warm rooms that were prepped with fireplaces glowing and Christmas music playing. Ben and Amy did an incredible job of looking after the smallest details - from our lobby bar to... More

This was my first time visiting the Birches and I will be back. We spent one night and purchased the Romantic Package. The intimate and romantic setting was a wonderful backdrop for an excellent dinner and staycation (a mini vacation right in our backyard, Cape Breton). The service and attention to detail was top notch!

Several of us booked a golf trip to Ben Eoin last month. We stayed at The Birches and played The Lakes which was next door through the hedges/bushes. I expected ordinary accomodations but we found much more than that. We were met by Barb and Larry, the owners, who were extremely friendly. The lobby was striking with hand made quilts... More
