First of all, apologies for such a late review; we travelled NS and stayed here in September and this review fell through the cracks of all the back to work to-do lists. I can't add much to any of the superlatives mentioned. I would travel NS and Cape Breton again without hesitation and I would love to stay here for... More

What a great place !! This b+b has 4 lovely rooms in an older house - very clean and quiet. The hosts, Ester and Alan are wonderful people. Breakfasts are AMAZING ! Lots of choices - all wonderful! This is located about 3-4 kms from Mabou.

Great location, great homemade breakfasts with scrumptious lemon poppyseed/blueberry pancakes , berries, and condiments. As a non egg eater, the free range duck and chicken eggs, were also superb. The best thing about our three day stay were the hosts,Esther and Alan. This was our second stay and we will return.

A great B&B with extremely friendly owners. The rooms are cozy, well kept and comfortable. The breakfast was great and as requested. The Inn is a bit hard to find but if you follow their instructions its no problem (trust the directions - it is down a dark dirt road).

This is an older house in a somewhat remote, wooded area next to a beautiful little stream. Our upstairs room was spacious, clean, and with all the amenities we needed. The bed must have been comfortable because we slept so soundly! The Inn was full but we never heard the sounds of the other guests in their rooms. Sipping a... More

Sitting in a rocker on the porch, sipping white wine, dozing or staring into the woods. Alan and Esther have a vocation to make you feel welcome with the spectacular breakfasts with us all sitting round the vast table enjoying the conversation, their own fascinating history and the story of the house. Lovely antique furniture , a sense of peace... More

Five of us traveling together stayed at the Inn. Esther and Alan were friendly and helpful with advice (e.g. music and lunch possibilities). We enjoyed playing music in the living room (nice piano). Breakfasts were delicious and more than ample; remember to save room for Alan's scones or muffins! A morning walk on the trail across the road was a... More

My sister and I chose the Glendyer for two reasons: we could get a room with two beds (not always easy to find in a B&B) and the hydrotherapy tub. We got much more than expected. Room #3 is actually two bedrooms so you can close off from your traveling companion or kids. The beds were comfortable, everything was super... More

In an area where there are few places to stay, this cozy inn was a real find. The inn keepers, Alan and Esther Finlay, could not have been more cordial and welcoming. Our room was very comfortable and the bed was extremely comfortable- a must have for a good night sleep. Breakfast was prepared individually and was delicious.

Wonderful place to end our tour of the Cabot Trail. Esther and Alan were great hosts, engaging in interesting conversation, providing information about the area and generally making us feel welcome. Our room and bath were very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was outstanding. Ignore google maps if it directs you to take Glendyer Road to go to or from the... More
