The Mabou River Inn is a wonderful place to stay! The staff is the best....seriously! We stayed one night in Room 3 and one night in Room 2 and both were tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The breakfast in the mornings is mouth watering with cinnamon rolls that are fresh from the oven and taste even better than they smell.... More

We stayed in apartment #2 for one night at the beginning of the Cape Breton trip. It was very nice having the 2 bedrooms and the washer and dryer were brand new. We didn't use the kitchen but it was very large. Breakfast was very yummy the next morning. My kids loved playing with Hunter (the dog). They didn't want... More

We stayed in Room 3 which was a very large, comfortable room with a king bed with a spacious bathroom. The place is well kept and clean and the staff was very accommodating when we had to change our reservation due to the recent hurricane. The bed was really comfortable!!! There are delicious little cinnamon rolls for breakfast in addition... More

The Mabou River inn was excellent! I wish we could have taken the Inn with us the whole trip. The people who greeted us were great - but be sure to arrive early if you want to have dinner there! The breakfast was AWESOME - cinnamon rolls to die for. We stayed in room #3 upstairs in a king! it... More

We stayed in Apt 3 and it was in a basement but roomy and cool and comfortable. Well equipped but would have appreciated paper towel and things like that. Amazing continental breakfast and friendly staff. Easy walk to the Red Shoe to eat and hear some music.

We spent a very comfortable night at the Mabou River Inn before touring the island. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast included freshly baked biscuits. The Inn is in a good location away from the main road and is in Mabou not too far from the beginning of the Ceilidh Trail. The room was large, the bed comfortable,... More

Such a find! Great place to stay and they were very nice to us! They had very few rooms open as the "season" had not yet started- but accommodated us in a lovely room! Onsite pizza kitchen was a plus! View from room of yard- etc was really pretty!!! Owner was a sweetheart- obviously loves what he does and makes... More

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
