The Inn at Glendyer is starting to feel like my home away from home when I visit Cape Breton. The location is excellent for The Red Shoe Pub, Glenora Distillery, traditional dances, hiking and beaches. I always take a daily walk along the river. Beds and linens are very comfortable and rooms are tasteful with tubs and toilets in the... More

This is your perfect country B&B - not too fancy but with lots of character. The owner, Jill, welcomed us and answered all of our questions about our local entertainment and dining choices for the evening. She also helped us locate the beaches in the area and hiking trails in the Mabou Mines trail system. Breakfast was much more than... More

This B&B has been tastefully restored. I particularly like the soft and soothing pastels in each bedroom along with a matching quilts. The bathrooms are wonderful with very nice fittings and all the bathrooms are en suite so that you do not have to leave your room in the middle of the night. We used the sitting room which has...

This historic B&B is located in a secluded glen next to a river. The setting is wonderful as is the well tended house. The owner is friendly, welcoming and full of helpful information. We had eggs, ham, scones, juice, fresh melon and berries, yoghurt, granola, toast, tea and coffee served buffet-style for breakfast - more than ample. Make sure to... More

Lovely heritage house in a quiet setting with the Glendyer Brook running through the property. We had our best sleep on this trip in the comfortable beds with lovely linens. The huge country breakfast was more than expected. Make sure you take a walk on the TransCanada Trail that borders the property and follows the stream. Will return next time... More

My husband and I enjoyed our stay in Mabou and The Inn at Glendyer was a large part of our enjoyment of the area. The inn is located in the home of "Donald the Dyer" who brought the first industry of wool carding, spinning, weaving and dying to the area. The home has many nice architectural touches and Jill, the... More

I have stayed in most of the lodgings in Mabou over the last few years and this B&B is by far the best in the area. At the same or lesser price, it has nicer bathrooms which are all en suite. Other lodgings have a shared bathroom or the washroom is outside of your bed room. The Inn at Glendyer... More

This was one of the smallest rooms we ever had. I felt very cramped. The bathroom, however, was large and had a hydrotherapy tub. The towels were thick and big. The breakfast was buffet style and adequate although the eggs were cold. There is a one mile dirt road leading to the inn. This is an OK place but that... More

My wife and I stayed at the Inn at Glendyer during our honeymoon. It was a beautiful spot, where took a lovely walk, did the labyrinth, and had a fantastic breakfast prepared by Jill! We were there on our own, at the beginning of May, and it was one of the best stops on our trip!

My husband and I stayed here in late August. Were a bit skeptical after driving down a dirt road in the country. Were very happy to find this cute old farmhouse, beautifully restored. Just the right things were updated, and the rest left old and charming. We had a big room with a smaller room attached with a couch and... More
