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

On the advice of a forum in TA, it was suggested a stay in Mabou would be a smart overnight before our final destination in Cape Breton. Excellent choice made more so after I finally found a room here after there being no vacancies in town. My daughter and I were greeted by the most marvellous couple who displayed a... More

The Inn at Glendyer is off the beaten track but well worth the trip. Alan and Esther are delightful hosts and their home is lovely. Alan offered help and advice in answer to my questions in advance of the trip and they were very informative about the area. Their home is decorated beautifully and the ensuite rooms are very comfortable.... More

We can't say enough great things about our stay with Alan and Esther in their beautiful rustic mid 1800's country home. The moment we stepped in the door, we knew we had chosen a winner. The granola baking in the oven greeted us immediately, and the wonderful smells of breakfast cooking served as an alarm clock. Our hosts made us... More

We booked this B&B for a two night stay and were so glad we landed here. It's outside of Mabou on a dirt road (about 2 miles) but it is charming, well appointed, clean, comfortable and run by two adorable and most helpful people. Alan and Esther really want to make your stay memorable. The house is a beautiful and... More

This Inn is made best by the hosts and the breakfast. Lovely fresh fruit salad and homemade granola. It was a very warm welcoming place and it was fun to meet the other guests. Would definitely recommend to any visitors.

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.
