We had the Library room on the second floor of the house, up the staircase, turn right, then left. It is a wonderful huge room with high ceiling that echoes the shape of the roof itself. Comfortable queen bed, lovely ensuite bathroom with whirlpool tub, wing backed chairs, electric fireplace, peaceful green views from all the windows. The staircase to... More

Broadwater Inn is a wonderful place to stay and we can recommend it to everyone who is looking for a great B+B on Cape Breton. John (the innkeeper) and his staff are pretty nice people as well as great hosts. They know a lot of the history of Broadwater Inn and Alexander Graham Bell. We loved our stay there very... More

We stayed in the Bay room with it's beautiful view of the bay. It's an old house with old house quirks. The room was spacious- but know that the private bath is across the hall way. Breakfast was very good. It would have been nice to have coffee available for the early risers before breakfast was served.

Was initially going to give the cabin a 2 as the two bedrooms in the Baycroft were not suitable for us. There was a queen bed and a single, not good enough for 4 people. There was however a murphy bed downstairs in the living area that saved the day. This is a 2 story unit with one bathroom on... More

We stayed in one of the cottages at the Broadwater and it was wonderful. Had a full kitchen, very comfortable bed, and a nice sitting area. We also had a barbecue grill and a deck overlooking the Bras D'Or Lakes with 2 adironack chairs. John is wonderful at providing recommendations for things to do as well as where to eat.... More

We spent here 5 nights in June 2015 in a very nice cottage. It is just perfect located very quiet at the Bras d'Or Lake, a few minutes out of town center with lots of restaurants, shops, cafes. Because we are more of the sleeping-in kind we never took the chance to check out the breakfast.

If you want everything to be the same and you like your own company all the time, stay at a hotel chain. The Broadwater is why you stay at a B&B. The rooms are a little quirky but comfortable and the view is fantastic. We stayed in the East Room which has a door to the outside and it's own... More

This inn is a characterful property with peaceful lake views from the room/balcony, plus seating in the garden, if required. The decor/furnishings match the style but if you like slick/modern then this isn't the place for you. The creaky doors, sloping ceilings, uneven floors and old furniture are part of the charm, but we did feel that there was room... More

I have mixed feeling about the Broadwater. The location was convenient, located just outside of town, and the room--we stayed in the Breton room--an excellent size and value with beautiful furniture, but both my husband and I described the room as "barren" when we first walked it. This impression would be easily fixed by a throw run and some pictures... More
