It was our first stay at Broadwater Inn-and we loved everything about the visit. The owner was helpful and filled us in on the interesting history of the property, gave us a good rate for the stunning Bute Arran cottage when another requested cabin wasn't available, and made us feel very welcome. After an amazing meal at The Bitehouse we... More

Unfortunately my wife and I required a late room cancellation. l called John and found him to be concerned, professional and fair. I will definitely stay at the Broadwater Inn when we reschedule our visit to Baddeck!

I had made a reservation for this Inn and never received any confirmation email, even though the owner said I did. My trip was cancelled as my Dad is in the hospital and we are still waiting a diagnosis for why he passed out. All other lodging I made for this trip sent me emails and reminders for confirmation. I... More

Despite allowing her the benifit of the doubt, a couple days have passed now.... More

While traveling on the East coast of the United States and Canada we were lucky to find this gem in a perfect location for the Cabot Trail, Baddeck and all the sites. We found this spot on VRBO and TripAdvisor and looked at all the reviews. We are avid travelers and look for a place that is clean, quiet, knowledgeable... More

Stayed here with my boyfriend and felt welcome and taken care of from the second we arrived. A charming spot and delicious breakfast. We stayed in a quaint little cottage and enjoyed a beautiful view of the lake from our window every morning and night. Highly recommend this spot to all visitors of Cape Breton!

I wish that we could provide a review of our stay at Broadwater Inn and Cottages. Unfortunately, my husband and I were unable to make our stay. What we can provide is a review of the attitude and service of John, who runs the property, which should provide insight into what a stay would be like. Two days before our... More

Well, what can I say...nothing apparently. These people booked a cottage off season,(like the worst winter in Cape Breton history) I warned about the winter Eastern Canada was having but offered that if they were brave enough to land here from California, I`d do what I could to have a cottage up and going for their visit. It was for... More

We stayed in the Bute Aran cottage and found it fantastically well equipped modern accommodation. It had fantastic views from the living area and galleried bedroom across the lake. The hot tub was great fun in any temperature, even zero! Highly recommended.

In most inns, you feel like a customer, here we felt like we were John’s guests. Having checked in, John sat with us to give his recommended itinerary of the local attractions and restaurants. We especially enjoyed the Baddeck Gathering Ceilidh and the Celtic College, giving us a greater insight into the culture and history of Cape Breton. We had... More

Apply it here. Seems they’ve all been used already. This establishment met all of our needs and exceeded all our expectations during our week long stay in Baddeck. We stayed in a cabin with a full kitchen. (Note: breakfast is not provided with the cabins and must be negotiated separately.) We greatly enjoyed our daily visits in the Inn with... More

We stayed at the Broadwater Inn for a single night in Baddeck before heading off on the Cabot Trail. John is a nice host, the breakfast was good and the West room was nicely appointed. The view from the room was beautiful.
