Five of us stayed at the Inn last night after a hectic four days of traveling in lovely Cape Breton. We hadn't stayed there before, but the reviews looked encouraging... It was a wise choice. The house is impeccably clean, with tasteful antiques all around. The new owners (Alan and Ester) are exceptional hosts, and welcomed us warmly to their... More

What a pleasant experience. We came here after hiking the Skyline Trail on a hot summer day in July. Ester and Alan are such genuine, soft hearted and delightful people. It was good to sit down with them in their sitting room getting to know each other and exchanging stories over wine and tea. The sitting room is also equipped... More

We spent 3 nights at the Inn in July 2014. The new owners, Esther and Alan, are wonderful. The rooms are very comfortable with private bathrooms. We stayed in Room 3, which had a cozy sitting room attached to the main bedroom. The location is very close to Mabou with many hikes, Celtic music opportunities, and beautiful beaches within 5-10...

My friend and I visited Nova Scotia for the first time this July, I had booked a night at The Inn at Glendyer so that we could hear music at the Red Shoe pub. Esther was reassuring when I called that afternoon, saying that we could come in at any time we needed, and we should enjoy our long drive... More

When we arrived in June, 2014, Alan and Wai Ping Finlay told us that they were the new owners and had been on the premises for two weeks. This B&B had been closed for about six months during the ownership transition. The Finlays did all they could to make sure that we were comfortable. The house and grounds are lovely,... More

We were here in September and wanted to hear as much local music as possible. Wow! We came to the right place. Not only did Jill make us feel welcome, she even has the daily music events posted in the hall. She learned our music tastes and steered us to the right venues. Our room was comfortable and cozy and... More

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
