Smallish rooms, but we lucked into one with a gorgeous view. And (typical of Nova Scotia) there was no A/C, but we could open doors and windows and get a genuinely cooling breeze from the ocean. We also had a lot of privacy. The decor, bed, etc. were so-so. It's on a huge lot. We used the modest laundry facilities,... More

My husband and I spent three nights at the Silver Dart Lodge while on our honeymoon. We stayed in one of the Chalets (number 201). The Chalets are nice and private and have a small kitchen area with a mini fridge, sink, etc. It was also nice that we could pull right up to our spot. The outdoor pool was... More

Nice, clean, simple motel with easy parking. Our room (15) had a balcony with magnificent waterfront view. Beds were spacious and comfortable. Room and bath were clean and everything worked. Restaurant was decent to good. Not a very extensive menu, but food seemed good and fairly priced. Good coffee at breakfast. Their breakfast buffet items were fresh and hot. If... More

My husband and I stayed in the main lodge,in a King size suite overlooking the picturesque Bras d'or lakes. From the first moment we arrived, until we checked out everything about our stay was fantastic. My only three suggestions are to have lactose free milk available , in the restaurant . Find a new beauty product line for your shampoos.... More

We chose to stay in one of the chateaus which was more costly but very cozy. It was rainy and cold when we arrived.There was a small wood stove with wood and kindling available so built a nice warm fire to warm us up. It is not luxurious, but it is serviceable. A bit expensive for what we had--more expensive... More

Great view from the room and from the porch. Rooms were clean and we enjoyed the extra living space outside the room. Pool was clean but not heated enough for us. The motel also has access to the lake across the road. We visited the pier but didn't take advantage of the swimming area. Overall great experience.

Baddeck is a great base for visiting Cape Breton Island. There are shops, restaurants and The Alexander Graham Bell Heritage site. The Silver Dart Lodge has tired, if serviceable, rooms. The A/C unit in the window roars loud enough to keep you from sleeping. However, it was cool enough at night to just leave the window open, and enjoy the... More

We booked for one night but added another once we saw our room. Gorgeous views. The staff are extremely helpful. It was our home base. Easy walk to town, maybe five minutes. The bed was so comfy. We had two chairs outside on the deck to enjoy the expansive views. Pictures don't do it justice as it was an overcast... More

It was such a pleasure to read your review of our property and to hear about your wonderful stay.
