Although Google Maps tried to send us down a non-existent road, we did find the Inn and greatly enjoyed our comfortable stay. We had a lovely large room, complete with fireplace and sitting/library nook. Wonderful breakfast with fresh fruit.

A very comfortable and serene environment. Alan and Esther go out of their way to ensure a five star experience, even giving us a little package of his baked goods to take with us when we left the next morning. He had waited up without complaint for the next guests who didn't arrive till after midnight the night before, attesting... More

The tranquil country setting and close proximity to Mabou, Cape Breton makes this B&B a sought after accommodation for the area. Breakfasts & fresh baking for the road were yummy! We appreciated Esther & Alan’s knowledge & suggestions for restaurants and attractions. This B&B was exceptionally clean and very comfortable which enhanced our memorable stay.

Country Inn off the main road, in a quiet area but a short, easy drive to Mabou. We arrived after a long day of hiking and were warmly greeted by hosts, Esther and Alan. Esther gave us a tour of the common area (coffee, tea, cookies, refrigerator available). She showed us to our room (#2), with a large, comfortable bed... More

Esther and Allan are the reason why people use B&B,s .They provide an atmosphere where one can relax, have a drink in the living room, converse with them and other guests. It's how travelling should be, sharing of knowledge and travels. They provide a very quiet, very clean place to reside. The waterfall shower head in RM #1 is a... More

We really enjoyed our stay of just one night in August at Inn at Glendyer - would not have missed it! Alan and Esther are relatively new owners and real characters - and made it so much fun. They have worked hard and created a warm inviting place to stay and impeccably clean. We enjoyed sitting around the cosy living... More

Beautiful old house with friendly helpful hosts and delicious, generous breakfasts. 5 mins drive from Red Shoe pub on a quiet side road. I stayed in room 1 which was very comfortable and had a great view of the backyard bird feeder which attracted many blue jays and squirrels. I would definitely stay there again.

This was the first stop on our 10-day tour of Cape Breton and Nova Scotia and it set the bar remarkably high. The hosts were gracious, the breakfast outstanding and the room clean, comfortable, and elegant. While some may not appreciate the fact that Glendyer is not on the highway, it's rustic location simply adds to the charm and atmosphere.... More

Spent a lovely overnight stay with hosts Alan and Esther and couldn't have had a nicer stay. They are the new owners of the Inn. We had room No. 1 with a comfy queen bed and ensuite bath. Loved the original features, like the stained glass windows and the "secret" staircase in our bathroom. The floor in our room was... More

Stayed two nights with Esther and Alan and enjoyed our time very much. Rooms clean and comfortable, breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Great location close to the Red Shoe for great dinners and music and beautiful West Mabou Beach, said to be the warmest water in Cape Breton Island.
