The Silver Dart Lodge in Baddeck offers amazing views (weather permitting) of the lake. Its a multi-building facility with spacious and well appointed rooms. Friendly staff and a nice restaurant overlooking the spacious grounds provides a relaxing stay. Breakfast while not included in the room rate was nice. Good stay all around!

We liked the location and the view. However there were some issues with the room that seemed quite dated. There weren't enough power outlets so that things had to be plugged in at odd places. The bathroom was somewhat oddly arranged, and too much sound carried between rooms. Two comfortable chairs were provided in the room, which was a plus.... More

We had a great stay at the Silver Dart Lodge, and were treated to excellent service and hospitality. We dined that evening at their restaurant, and enjoyed it - it also holds a nice view of the lake. Though the Silver Dart Lodge is a little dated in the main rooms, the rooms are fully functional and very spacious. The... More

I tried to find something that would put this under 5 stars and I couldn't. Great spot, right on the lake. Very friendly staff, rooms are very nice and spacious (I stayed in the main lodge). As I type this, I'm having breakfast, which was excellent. I will be back for sure.

The rooms could do to have a little refurbishment and we hear the tour buses revving up early in the morning to take the tourists to the next venue but on balance this is countered by the excellent staff, none more wonderful than the fabulous 'Phillipa' on reception.

Having first had to move out of room 1 due to its proximity to the kitchen and its fan, our second room (10) was much better. Decor is dated but functional and the beds are very comfy ( note interconnecting doors in main building which means you can hear noise from next door clearly). Felt hotel was more set up... More

This was a wonderful place to stay. It is on the lake, and has wonderful views. There is a walking trail, bikes to use and a pool, in season.
