We really enjoyed our stay even though it was just for one night. We stayed in one of the cabins - it was lovely and quaint (it reminded me of a doll house!). It was very clean and super comfortable. We decided to have breakfast at the Inn's restaurant (we needed to pre-order the night before) and were super impressed... More

My husband and I stayed at the this INN June 22 , 2015. Even though the weather was not the best on our arrival day, we still enjoyed walking around Baddeck. We had a great dinner at the LOBSTER SUPPERS Restaurant. Best food and deal ever. A Must on Your list in Baddeck if you want crap or lobster. They... More

We checked into the motel in the rear of the building. However the cleaning chemical odours were so strong that they upgraded us to one of their cabins. The odours were still present but bearable most likely due to having wood floors over carpets. Overall relatively clean. Bring your own toiletries as it appears none are supplied. As well as...

Delightfully creaky old building, well located in the centre of Baddeck. We stayed on the top floor with a small balcony which overlooked the harbour. I suspect there is not a horizontal surface in the entire place, but it doesn't matter, that was part of the charm. A comfortable bed, a functional bathroom and really friendly staff. Perhaps the last... More

Nice and quiet. The rooms in the motel around back have no coffee maker nor fridge. So no early morning coffee. For the price there should have been an effort made. The room was clean and quiet. The people around are friendly and helpful.

When we heard our group planned to stay here we decided to upgrade to a 'cabin'. The cabin was essentially a small duplex with rooms smaller than an average hotel room. The room was decorated with old furniture. There were two chairs that were so fragile we were afraid to sit on either one. The walls were paper thin such... More

We called to say we were going to be late, ended up being later than we thought, and Shawn stayed up for us. We couldn't have asked for friendlier staff. They were super accommodating and very helpful in providing recommendations for local restaurants to eat in.

The staff were warm helpful hosts. The Baddeck, Cape Breton Island tourist season is just starting. Lots for Shawn, the owner to do, yet he took time to just chat and give tips for visiting the area. Telegraph House gave me the kind of experience I was hoping to find on Cape Breton.

We stayed overnight after doing the Cabot Trail. We had booked a room in the main house and chosen it for its historical charm. When we got there our room was moved to the motel area. My girls were very disappointed. The room was clean and comfortable though. The internet was free as well.
