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.

Our family of 5 adults were beautifully accommodated in this perfect B and B in the charming town of Baddeck. John, the owner and Inn Keeper was a truly charming character who was full of wonderful stories, history and insights into the area. Our breakfast was delicious....best eggs I've ever had! The rooms were very clean and well appointed. The... More

We spent four nights at the Broadwater Inn. This is a splendid center from which to visit the Alexander Graham Bell museum, drive the Cabot Trail, take a sailboat tour, or enjoy the town of Baddeck. The inn is charming & historic. John the innkeeper is a font of information for tourists, with back stories & interesting detail about the... More

My wife and I spent one night in the East room as a guest of John at his inn. He was very welcoming on our arrival and made suggestions ( very helpful) re dining in Baddeck. All of the rooms have separate entrances ( from the main property where breakfast is served), and there is plenty of room for parking... More

The Inn is clean, historic and pleasant. John and his staff are very helpful and knowledgeable about all kinds of things. He even lent us some rain gear so we could hike the Cabot Trail in the ever present rain! The setting is lovely off the lake and its just a short drive to town. We enjoyed out time at... More

The house, rooms and grounds are lovely and gracious. The owner was a font of information about the area and area attractions. It was enlightening to learn more about the range of Alexander Graham Bell’s interests at the museum there and we can certainly can understand why he choose to make is home in this beautiful area. We enjoyed the... More

One week in a cottage at Broadwater Inn in the wake of a week in Charlottetown was atmospheric, informative, comfortable and above all enhanced in every way by John Pino and his colleagues who were genuinely interested and committed to meeting and enhancing the broad range of agendas, interests and perspectives of their guests. My wife and I are "mature"... More

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.
