We were referred here by the owners at the "Dancing Moose" a cute little restaurant on the Cabot Trail, and we were not disappointed. A very charming young lady greeted us at the counter and was very helpful. Elishia provided us with all kinds of helfpful information about the sites to see in Baddeck. We stayed in room #19 it...

Well located house and motel in Baddeck, easy to get to within the town. Overall very friendly service and rooms reasonably priced. Having said that, don't expect anything too flashy. The rooms are clean but the towels have some suspicious looking patches on them, and the rooms are in a need of refurbishment. There is a dining room on site... More

The Hotel is perfectly located in the heart of beautiful Baddeck, it is a perfect stop on the Cabot Trail. Our room was clean and relatively comfortable. The hotel is cute and charming, however, some upgrades and renovations would definitely help.

We stayed in one of the cabins at Telegraph House. It was nice and it was clean. There was a front step with a table and two chairs. What I didn't like is that the cabins are attached to each other so you share the front step, therefore no privacy.

We opted for here vs going out of town and saving a few extra bucks. We had one of the motel rooms behind the kitchen. Room was decent size, mattress was ok but wifi was weak. Tried ordering red wine and getting info on tasting menu which wasn't clear and took a while so I can't say much about restaurant... More

What a wonderful experience. We stayed in the main house and found it full of history and extremely charming. Room was fine and very well located in town. Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Enjoyed the cafe across the street for breakfast. Also attended a ceilidh one block away. We would... More

No a/c. Soft hammock-like mattresses. No coffee in room. One ice machine for the whole place. No phone in room. Room not ready when told that it would be. 15" CRT TV from the 80s. Low water pressure. Garage sale furniture.....and these are the "better" motel rooms. Don't even consider the lodge. All this for a 3-figure cost. Barely a... More

Love this place! My teenage daughter and I stayed in the motel part of the inn. Our room was huge and a really good deal. The town is awesome! But the best part of our hotel experience here was finding a completely gluten-free high-end restaurant in this tiny town. It was delicious. I will definitely go back.

This is a nice motel in the main street of Baddeck, everything is walking distance from there. The motel is not luxurious but we just wanted some decent place to stay the night and this fit the bill. The overall experience was great, the girl at the front desk was very helpful, got a crib for my little one and... More

Telegraph House is in a central position in Baddeck, and the perfect place to stay and explore this amazing island. The rooms are quaint and full of old fashioned charm. Very clean. The management and staff are extremely helpful and courteous.
