Beautiful location overlooking town harbor with a guest balcony made this a good choice. But the office closed before my 5:30 pm arrival and the breakfast service was spotty. Some couples were offered juice and hot meals; I was a solo traveler and got a piece of peasant toast and one cup of coffee. Internet did not work.

We stayed here for 3 nights in a King size room on the top floor. The mattress was extremely comfortable and we slept very well. The balcony overlooking the lake was excellent, it was a pleasure just to sit there in the evening. The room was well equipped and very clean. Breakfast was served in the ground floor art gallery...

My husband and I stayed at Water's Edge Inn and loved it. We had a lovely, large room overlooking the harbor, with a private balcony, where we sat and read our books. The bed, bed linens and towels were all great, the pillows not so much. The Inn keepers were very friendly and attentive. For breakfast there was fresh fruit,... More

We stayed 3 wonderful nights in the Waters Edge. Our room overlooked the harbour with stunning views of the harbour. The room was quite large and was in excellent condition. Waking up and watching the sunrise over the harbour was a real treat. The room rate included breakfast which was in the art and craft room located on the ground... More

Stayed in the studio apartment--third floor of one of three connected houses on the waterfront in the center of Baddeck. Had everything we needed. Skilled and devoted management. Central and convenient to everything on Cape Breton.

We just happened to book these accommodations as our plans changed and we ended up staying in Baddeck. This was a wonderful change to our agenda. These accommodations were spacious, clean, and had a local atmosphere. The balcony overlooked the harbourfront and on a warm day, it was a stunning spot to have a glass of vino. You can walk...

This was a Lovely relaxing place to stay...we had a balcony or looking the harbour which was great inthe morning and evening. Breakfast was served in the gallery and was fine-the banana bread and fruit pots particularly good.

We were in room 2 which has a balcony overlooking the waterfront. The inn is walking distance to most places in Baddeck. King bed very comfortable. Fully equipped including a mini fridge. Very clean and modern. Good wifi. Good continental style breakfast. Excellent location to begin the Cabot Trail drive from.
