This is a small, charming B&B on Bras d’Or Lake on Cape Breton Island. John, the inn keeper, is a wealth of information about the area as well as the best way to see the Cabot Trail. Make sure that you ask him for advice before you leave for the Trail. Our room was the “Bay” room and was charming... More

We spent the first week of a three week trip to Cape Breton in Bute Arran. What a great place to start our holiday. The cottage was immaculate, very comfortable and the hot tub was a real treat! John was very welcoming and full of local knowledge and stories.

Broadwater Inn overlooks beautiful Bras D'Or Lake. The 2-bedroom Verandah Suite was huge, and well-appointed, including microwave and fridge. John, the host, was extremely friendly and regaled us with stories of local history and folklore, having grown up in Baddeck. If you need any information about Cape Breton, John is the man to ask. The inn is a well-known participant... More

This is a great place to stay especially if you want to do the Cabot trail. Just a little out of Baddeck so it's quiet and with a superb views of the lake. The room was comfortable and quiet and the breakfast was great. John is so knowledgeable and helpful and with a big personality.

The location of this Inn just outside of Baddeck is just perfect (especially for taking in the Cabot Trail), but unless you're a boater or a golfer that's about all it can offer you. The staff are quite relaxed and not necessarily super responsive - it's a B&B after all. We didn't get the B&B package so we missed out... More

My wife and I stayed here in July of 2014. We did not have a reservation and were quite pleased to be able to find a nice room in the B&B part of this facility. John was very helpful and informative about the local area. Our room was very clean, the bed comfortable and had a great water view. We... More

Baycroft is an adorable 2-storey, 2 bedroom (plus extra living room futon) cottage which is located only a few kilometres from the beautiful town of Baddeck. Truly a writer, artist's or adventurer's paradise, this quiet cottage is situated in the woods, well away from a road facing the spectacular Baddeck Bay. We enjoyed the serene waterfront from the modern wood... More

We stayed four nights at the Broadwater, John the Innkeeper was a great host. Property sits up on a hill overlooking the bay, what a great view. Close to Baddeck and a good base for touring the area. Breakfast was good and the room was comfortable. The Alexander Graham Bell Museum is less than a mile away.

John and his staff are fantastic, warm, friendly, inviting and on the beautiful setting of Bras D'or Lake. We brought our family member (doggie) for our stay and it was so nice to have such a lovely B&B to stay at that allowed our well behaved pet! I had messed up my arrival date and with no fuss about it... More
