We were two couples travelling the Cabot Trail in mid-October and the Lynwood Cottage behind the Inn was ideal for us. We were able to relax and share a drink or three before dinner in the restaurant which was also fine. Similarly breakfast in the same spot was good and we were on our way with a full day's drive...

The rooms are nicely appointed, with tall ceilings, charming yet modern decor and bright, big windows. Our room even had a little balcony which we did not get to use as it was too cool being fall. I would gladly stay here again.

We stayed at the Lynwood for five days. The Inn is in a great place, very central located so you can do the Cabot Trail, go to Sydney for the or tour the other trails on the lower part of the island. The Inn is kept very clean and updated with fresh paint. The rooms were a little cramped. The... More

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to write your helpful review. You would have stayed in room 102--it has the accessible en suite but is smaller than our standard room size. You are absolutely right--this room would not be suitable for a guest in a wheelchair. However, guests using a cane or walker find this cozy room perfect. The... More

We stayed there as a result of a tour we booked. It was very nice, located in the town, seemed to close to everything in the little town. We were there two nights. Staff was very accommodating. There wasn't too much to do in the evenings, but that seemed to be the way it was for the whole town. Really... More

Very clean and pleasant inn. Welcoming staff and great food. Rooms were very spacious and very clean. This is a great place to stay if you are going to do the Cabot trail in a day. The egg benedict at breakfast was to die for.

Dining room downstairs, breakfast, reasonable pricing and very quiet...it's in the heart of Baddeck so walking about is great.

We stayed here two nights in a modern room with a balcony. The room was clean and comfortable and we enjoyed partial views of the harbour. There was a fridge and microwave in the room. The Inn is centrally located in what is a small town. Every other attraction is reasonably close. This Inn because of its size, caters for... More

Thank you for sharing your comments. I love it when reviewers take the time to submit their positive reviews of Lynwood Inn. I would like to share with you that all properties in Baddeck with a sufficient number of rooms accept as many coach tours as possible. It's not that we cater to them specifically but with a short season... More

So very, very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! Regarding the mattresses, I'm not sure what the solution will be as many guests have told me that they loved the firm mattress and had their best sleep since leaving home here at Lynwood Inn. Others, like yourself, find the mattresses too hard. Perhaps outfitting one of... More

This cottage would not have been too bad if it was cleaned and all the nick nacks were removed. The deck furniture was rusted iron and very uncomfortable. The furniture inside looked like antique victorian, also uncomfortable. The screens in the kitchen and one in the livingroom were missing. There was a large cobweb inside the kitchen window with a...

Great location for an overnight stay after touring the Cabot Trail. Close to Alexander Graham Bell Museum. Had problems with wifi. System outdated and needs upgrade. Room was small but comfortable. Dinner and breakfast in restaurant was very good. Waitress very friendly. Nice entertainment during dinner.
