Our bridge group spent 3 nights at this charming country inn. We explored the area by day, with tips from our hosts on sites to see, hiking, lunch stops and lots of local information. We returned for dinner and bridge in the evenings. Fresh local food for breakfast and dinner was prepared with 5 star care , flavour and flare.... More

Once again at the beginning of May, parts of Canada are just coming out of hibernation!! We were the only people staying here but the welcome was just as if they were lots of visitors. Beautiful, enormous room and the food that they prepared for us for our evening meal and breakfast the following morning was outstanding.

Thank you for your most generous review! Yes, May is a quiet time but I enjoyed having the opportunity to visit with you. During the busiest times, I don't get that privilege. Your appreciation of the food is very rewarding as it makes our efforts to secure local foodstuffs worthwhile. I hope you are able to return some day. More

We stayed three nights in one of Chanterelle's adorable cottages and absolutely loved every minute. Dinner at the Inn was simply superb! Keith has a wonderful sense of humor and made us feel very welcomed. The cottage was the perfect size for us (hubby & I) and had everything we needed. We did end up needing a very large pot... More

We had the pleasure of spending several nights at the Chanterelle Inn. Upon driving up the driveway we felt confident we had made the right choice. It just got better from there. The manager was very welcoming and helpful. Our room was beautifully decorated in antique furnishings and the bed was extremely comfortable. The dining area/library was a wonderful place... More

Fabulous food, service and location. Friendly, and family run. Only came for dinner, as had read a positive review online. Would come back to stay as well! The food was absolutely incredible, and there was an impressive wine list too!

Your comments were such a welcome start for the New Year! Thank you so very much. September is such a great "food time" to come to Cape Breton as the local fruits and vegetables are so plentiful. I'm glad you were here to enjoy the bounty of Cape Breton along with its beauty. More

We spent a week at Chanterelle Country Inn in October 2014 while attending a wedding. We instantly fell in love with this serene property surrounded by colourful foliage of automn trees. Location is quite convenient - there is a Ocean View restaurant 15 min drive and Baddeck is about half an hour drive, and it is close to Sydney airport.... More

Ah, yes. the wedding was just too much fun! And the couple's guests, such as yourselves, were all so gracious and appreciative. By the time everyone had gone, I felt as if your family was mine!

What a fantastic place to visit and stay!. My wife and I traveled to Cape Breton for the week-long, international Celtic Colours music festival in mid-October. The views from the inn and cottage where we stayed were stunning; the fall foliage was unlike anything seen in U.S. The central location near the Gaelic College and Baddeck made it easier to...

Such lovely thoughts---thank you and thank you too for taking the time to write about your experience during the Celtic Colours Music Festival. It is a great celebration of the rich Gaelic heritage found in this area. Last fall, the weather and foliage were truly "showing off ".

This is a super place, and ideal location to see the sights on the Cabot Trail. We stayed in one of the cottages, that had a a 'bed sitter' arrangement with the king bed, lounge area together with the kitchen. It had a lovely deck and gorgeous view of the valley.

Thank you for your most kind words. It was just too much fun having you with us . We are convinced that having a great sense of humor must be in the DNA of Australians!

My family stayed at the Chanterelle In for four nights in August and used it as a base to explore Cape Breton Island. Our room was perfect for us -- a two-room suite with separate space for our seven-year-old son and plenty of room to spread out, though we spent most of our time outdoors or in the lounge. We...
