A classic small (2-room) b&b in distant rural Cape Breton. The host and hostess were sociable, the breakfast was delicious. The room was smallish but prettily decorated, with an on-suite bathroom. There was a comfortable sitting room with lots of electrical outlets. We ate the boxed lunch we'd bought earlier on their deck. They had hummingbirds.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights while touring the Cabot Trail. It is a lovely home with two guest rooms. The rooms are a good size and each have private baths. Our bed was the BEST and most comfortable bed in which I have ever slept. (Alfred later told me that they just bought it - so... More

We travelled as two couples from May 23rd 2015, through May 31st to Cape Breton, and were excited to stop over in Cape North for an evening with Alfred and Kathleen! We travel frequently and decided this would be a good alternative to a motel or cabin, and we were not disappointed. We arrived just after 6pm, and our hosts... More

A very pleasant stop on our trip around Cape Breton with welcoming hosts Alfred and Kathleen. We had a nicely furnished bedroom with huge bathroom adjacent to a comfy sitting area. This B&B was spotlessly clean and modern. After dining at "Angie's" down the road we returned and spent an enjoyable evening with our hosts. We truly appreciated being able... More

My mom and I stayed at this charming bed and breakfast for one night on our way through the magnificent Cabot Trail! The hosts Kathleen and Alfred were so friendly and welcoming. Our room was cute, spotless clean, with a beautiful ensuite bathroom attached. We had our own sitting area, where we enjoyed talking with the both of them. We... More

I had to find a place to break up my Cape Breton trip in two. Cape North seemed to be a natural stop, so, I found Country Haven. The price was right, with a cooked breakfast? I was sold. Upon arriving, the hosts were generally pleasant, but I could not say that they were very warm. The room was fine,... More

We had an excellent stay at this Bed & Breakfast. We had our own bathroom and it was very large, which was great to store all our suitcases (we travelled through Eastern Canada for a month :p). The bedroom was very clean and comfortable. It was a bit small, but there is a living room reserved for guests, with a... More

This is a great warm and friendly country BnB. Hosts Alfred and his wife were fun to talk to and are excellent hosts. No AC in the room, but it did filter in from the main living area. Opened the window in the mid-night and were fine with the breeze. Adjoined bathroom was spotless and very nice. Breakfast was scrambled... More
