We enjoyed the Broadwater Inn in Baddeck. It was close enough to the town without being in all the hoopla. We stayed in a room at the Inn, and so had breakfast in the morning. Delicious, but only one sitting - be on time! During breakfast, the host told lots of interesting stories about Alexander Graham Bell and his various... More

Recently stayed for 2 nights at the Inn in the Breton room. It has a small porch with 2 chairs and overlooks the well maintained grounds and views of the lake across the street. When we arrived we were met by John the innkeeper. He immediately made us feel welcome and at home. The main part of the Inn has... More

The Broadwater inn is a really nice place to stay. It's a short walk out of town and overlooks the Bras D'or lake. The rooms are quint, quiet and very clean. The Innkeeper is super helpful with what to do in Baddeck and spends real time with you. Wonderful place for a vacation.

We stayed in a quaint cottage in wooded area near the hotel, where we had breakfast privileges and opportunity to visit with other travelers each morning. We had a view of the Bras d'Or lakes and easy access to roads to the Cabot Trail and other points of interest on Cape Breton. This was our favorite stop as we traveled... More

We stayed here with another couple. We were pleasantly surprised with the beautiful grounds and views from the inn. We checked in and were greeted by John the innkeeper. Since it was raining he gave some ideas as to what to do. The rooms are very comfortable, spacious and clean. The breakfasts were delicious, and prepared by John. To top... More

My wife and I made Baddeck one of the stops on our honeymoon during our Cape Breton Island trip, and this cozy inn did not disappoint. John, our innkeeper, was a perfect host, making sure our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was a special treat, with a variety of food, endless coffee, and entertaining tales from... More

Very clean cottage and beautiful view of the waterfront. But...if you get a cottage #2 or 3, please know that they are a semi and noise is very evident from the other side. Walking on the floor caused our side to also move.

We did not know what to expect when we made our reservation as we were told the only available room was the "Gardener's Shed". What a pleasant surprise--it was a stand alone, fully modernized, updated cottage! Full kitchen area, coach, chair, table and chairs, large bedroom and large bath. In addition, we had a private deck overlooking the lake with... More

Only there for two nights, location is excellent with beautiful views, close to town and restaurants which John advised us on. Would love to return if we ever get the chance. Ideal location for touring the Cabot trail.

John, the owner, makes you feel like family and loves to share his Inn and town with his guests. Everything from the accomodations, grounds, breakfast and overall service are first class. You'll love your stay at the Broadwater Inn and enjoying true hospitality at its best. My wife and I spent 3 weeks in the Maritimes, stayed in 15 different... More
