Bute Aran is the cottage build by the Innkeeper John in 2014. It ist spacious, comfortable and very styilish. We added breakfast in our reservation. Breakfast is a "must to have" not only for the food but for the unique entertainment by the Innkeeper. John is armed with an exceptional kind of Cape Breton humor. With his stories he let... More

Had a room upgrade, late arrival was no problem! The wonderful breakfast with John telling stories about the history of the house itself and also Baddeck is one-of-a-kind! The house is very clean and in good shape, a very nice place with a nice view on the Bras d'Or Lake.

We stayed here for several days in September. It's an ideal location for activities on Cape Breton. The inn is located just outside of town on spacious grounds with views of the water from our front deck. Our room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good with juice, coffee or tea, toast, and banana bread each day followed by... More

We were very pleased with our stay at Broadwater Inn. We stayed in the Breton room which was clean and spacious. John the Innkeeper made the stay more enjoyable with all of his stories. Location was great for the Cabot Trail.

The staff of the Tourist office assisted us in booking the Broadwater Inn's last available room, the Library, for our two night stay and we were delighted with the results! The room was comfortable, spacious, and attractive. John, the owner and innkeeper was warm and welcoming. He was full of stories of local history, around and within the Inn and... More

This was our second biking trip along the Cabot Trail, going Inn to Inn, so we were very selective in the places that we picked. The Broadwater significantly exceeded our expectations, and our expectations were very high to start with. The owners were over accomodating in working with us with our car during our biking trip, the room was one... More

Recently had the opportunity to spend 3 nights at the Broadwater and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. John, the innkeeper and owner was sincerely capatavating. The rooms are not the best I have ever stayed in, but are clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were wonderful. Especially the eggs Benedict. John is a wealth of information and having grown up in the... More

We recently stayed a week in Baddeck and the Baycroft cottage we rented was perfect. The location was private from the main inn and it had everything we needed. The hot tub on the deck, overlooking the lake, was a highlight. Baddeck is a great central location for Cape Breton and I would recommend it as a base for exploring... More

We stayed in the Garden Shed, and it met our minimum needs. This is not a luxurious accommodation so if you are looking for that, you will be disappointed. If you need a kitchen and want to stay in a place that has a bit of space, this would be a good fit.

The rooms were very clean and well appointed. The... More
