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

We stayed at the Broadwater inn for a night and enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, the breakfast was OK, not a lot of selection but it was good and we were full at the end. It is one sitting at 8 am but you get the chance to know other guests. We met two other couple from Boston... More

We stayed for one night at this B&B, in the East room. The room was lovely, fairly spacious, with nice shower. We didn't have much chance to interact with John due to the short duration of our stay. Breakfast was fairly good. A complain was that we did not have wifi in our room, but there was in the main... More

We we lucky to stay in canin number one for two nights. What struck us when we walked in was firstly how clean everything was and secondly how attention to detail had been paid in decorating the cabin- from the curtains to the lampshades and tablerunners-with simple adornments, they made a homey feeling in the cabin with well-used furniture. Outside,... More

The Broadwater was a highlight of our recent trip to Cape Breton. John's stories brought the area's history to life. We thoroughly enjoyed our night in the Shed. I would recommend Broadwater Inn's cabins to anyone seeking a peaceful night and a wonderful host.

We stayed here for three days on a tour of Cape Breton Island and could not have asked for a better location. From our first contact, John was a delight to work with and that continued to our goodbye handshake. We stayed in The Gardener's Shed and it was perfect for our needs. Though we didn't need the kitchen, it... More

Owning a B&B ourselves, it was our intent to stay at other B&bs in our travels but driving 10 hour days we ended up opting to check into hotels for the first 2 nights. Big mistake! Didn't sleep well until we ended up at the Broadwater Inn at Baddeck on Cape Breton Island after having driven the Cabot Trail in... More
