This hotel had closed the bedrooms for the winter on the day we were there so we weren't able to stay. Next time in the area we will certainly stay here. It is a tiny bit pricey but well worth it when compared to the alternatives. The owner was very helpful about finding us a place to stay further along... More

What a beautiful, pleasant , enjoyable inn, with a touch of good old country charm.It was so comfortable and very clean. The beds were like sleeping on a cloud. The washroom in our room was so clean with lots of room. Their breakfest was so good, with homemade cinnamon rolls, that melt in your mouth. The hosts were so accommodating... More

The Inn is a perfect place to stay. We stayed in room #2, which had a king size bed, a complete bathroom, flat screen TV and is very clean. The surroundings are quiet and is conducive to a good night sleep but the best surprise is the breakfast. The owner David is up early and making fresh cinnamon buns, tea... More

This was a perfect place for us to stay. We also visited the Glenora Distillery and the Red Shoe Pub and both those places were very close to the Mabou River Inn. Our basement suite was clean and comfortable. Our friend was unwell while we were there so the one bathroom was a bit difficult but we managed okay. Breakfast... More

This inn in Mabou is a quirky place, apparently once a private school. Our bedroom was comfortable, the beds were wonderful, and it looks like it was re-done very recently. Everything was immaculate. The quirk was having our bathroom, although exclusive to us, across the hall. The hosts were lovely and helpful with local information. The public rooms were beautiful,... More

Absolutely loved it! The Mabou River Inn is a spotlessly clean, well-appointed inn on beautiful grounds in the village of Mabou. Room #2 is very spacious, with a magnificent kingsize bed that was by far the most comfortable we've had in 3 weeks of travelling the Maritimes (1 boutique hotel and 10 B&Bs later!). The common rooms are welcoming, the... More

Good location. Rooms are very clean but the one we were in was a bit crowded. We found the bathroom being across the hall rather inconvenient. We would stay here again but would ask for a different room with an ensuite. Overall a very nice place with very friendly staff.

This is a great spot in Mabou, Nova Scotia. It is in an area sometimes passed by since it is off the Cabot Trail a little. But there are beautiful places near by to visit, with great fishing and vistas overlooking the ocean. The Inn has very special breakfasts, lots of warm friendship and a wealth of knowledge about the... More

Stayed here Sept 7-8th to attend a wedding. Beautiful location. Modern room, spotless, very comfortable bed. Had breakfast next morning (included) coffee was really good, homemade porridge bread and yummy cinnamon rolls. The host who was there to greet us for breakfast was a sweetheart. Would come back.

My husband and I spent 2 nights in this friendly and well appointed inn close to the downtown area of the village of Mabou. Our room on the second floor was nicely appointed, the breakfasts offered were delicious, with the best biscuits and cinnamon buns encountered in a long time! Staff were so helpful with day planning and knowledgable about... More
