Located on the hillside facing lovely Bras d'Or Lake in Cape Breton, this lodge has excellent views of the water. The bedroom had super comfortable beds and arm chairs, and was very clean. The dining room and bar in the main building also have wonderful picture window views of the lake, and breakfast was very good. Although we were there... More

This place has a summery feel so is best in the warmer weather. We were there in mid September and it was still pleaant although the season closes early here. Buildings are mainly wood and 1960s and 70s but in good condition. Breakfast is good. Cosy little bar. View over Bras d"or lake is good. Still Ok at this time... More

We stayed her because of the good reviews. The room was older but very well maintained and clean. The beds were comfortable. They have a really nice program in the evening about the Cabot area. They also had walking trails in the woods behind the motel. You good a coupon for breakfast sandwich in the restaurant.

This was a very pleasant stay. Well up kept property, clean and comfortable. There was a great view from our room looking at Bras d'Or Lake, unfortunately it was too cold to sit outside on the deck/porch. All the staff was friendly & helpful.

We stayed here for a week during the 2014 Celtic Colours. The room, in the East building, was comfortable and pretty quiet. The hotel is located close to the center of Baddeck and is just a few minutes from the trans-Canada highway. Our room had a delightful view of Bras D'Ors Lake -- a lovely sight to wake up to.
