Spent 4 nites here while exploring Cape Breton and area. Great location close to hiway 104. Across the street from picturesque Baddeck marina. Sailboats at anchor, view of surrounding hills right from your own balcony. Easy walking distance to many eateries, watering holes and shopping. Short walk to Alexander Graham Bell museum. Hiway access to Cabot Trail, Louisbourg etc. Large... More

My room is quaint and cozy, with decor that feels like I'm at my house. The young lady was friendly at our reception and a to tpo it all off, there's a cool art gallery built in too! Just walk across the street and you're at the marina. Beautiful little breakfast room.

Stayed two nights, great base of operation. Across the street from the harbor and yacht club. Friendly staff, studio apartment upstairs has terrific view of harbor. Suggest, however, they get a newer, updated and quieter window air conditioner.

The staff were five star friendly and the location is ideal. Our studio was spacious, comfortable and faced the water. We went kayaking from right outside our front door. The free wifi never worked in our room, which is important because cell reception is very poor in Baddeck. We were impressed with the locally made gluten free toast.

Water's Edge is right by the harbour - they own the property across the road which undeveloped so views/access are not impacted. We had a room upstairs at the back so it was quiet and well furnished. As a family of 3 there were some places that were challenged to accommodate without a second room, and Water's Edge easily accommodated... More

We stayed here for two nights, and loved it. Our room (2) was on the first floor, with steps up to one side of the hall and a ramp up yo the other - handy for heavy cases. It was large and nicely (if simply), with a huge and comfortable bed. Some nice touches: Venetian blinds that closed up or... More

Stayed for 3 nights in June at the Waters Edge Inn. From the outside the building looks a little tired, but we were really impressed with our room which was Room 2 (located in the next door building). Really large, spacious room with great views over the water. Had all the usual amenities and the bed was huge and really... More

There's a well kept secret about Cape Breton - the best place to stay is the Water's Edge Inn in Baddeck. What makes it the best? Location, location, location: It's in the center of Cape Breton, it's in a town, AND it's on the water with a wonderful view of the harbor and it's lighthouse. Only a few miles from... More

A great location by the water and convenient for driving the Cabot trail. Enjoyed the gallery -a nice selection of artists. The room was fine, but nothing special. Breakfast was a disappointment -stale breads (maybe a few days old?), waffles and a fruit cup. We expected more for the price. The hosts were pleasant, but we wouldn't stay there again.
