We spent a weekend here during the Celtic Colours festival and had a great stay. We arrived Friday and were able to take advantage of one of their pizza nights - very good and delivered to our room it was just the thing after a day on the Cabot Trail. The breakfast is much more than a regular continental -... More

We stayed here for three nights and had a great time. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, the staff is ultra friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was excellent. The location is within walking distance of the Red Shoe Pub and very near some nice walking trails. We are looking forward to staying here again!

We were so pleasantly surprised by this little inn – the quality cotton linens, the clean and modern bathroom, and the breakfast each morning was wonderful. I would highly recommend Mabou River Inn. Also, if you’re stopping in Mabou (or even if you aren’t), make plans to head to the Red Shoe Pub in town for dinner. It’s wonderful!

We stayed here on Oct. 8 while touring the Cabot Trail. Our room had a King Size bed and pull out sofa - very comfortable and a nice size bathroom. There is some "hall noise" - but it was a fairly quiet night so it didn't disturb us really. Very clean and the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was... More

Recently renovated, the inn offers exceptionally clean and comfortable accommodation. Our room was large, and easily had room for the king size bed and all our baggage. This is not 'fancy', but certainly adequate for the area, and the friendly staff were very helpful. The breakfast highlight was the warm biscuits and cinnamon rolls, and we were sent on our... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Dave Cameron and his staff are just so friendly and accomodating. And, the included breakfasts were awesome - excellent homemade cinnamon buns, and homemade breads. The Red Shoe Pub is in walking distance - THE place for Celtic and Breton music. We also visited the Farmer's Market on Sunday - this was very interesting.... More

Recently booked Apt # 1 but discovered it was a downstairs room which was unsuitable for our needs. Staff changed us to an upstairs room which had a deck at the end of the hall where we could sit in the evening. The rooms have no in room coffee which for me was a major drawback. Spacious and well appointed... More

We chose the MRI for a 3-night stay because of its proximity to the Red Shoe, which turned out to be an easy, 10-minute walk down the road. We got so much more than what we expected. All staff members, including the young ladies who were working the front desk and pizza kitchen at our Saturday night check-in, were sincerely... More
