“Great Place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

My husband and I stayed here for one evening during our recent trip to the Celtic Colours Festival on Cape Breton. The room was large, had its own entrance, washroom, a small eating area, with a fridge, and ample space to spread out. Juana, the owner, was a terrific hostess, friendly, outgoing, and eager to please. Although she had a house full of people to serve, she was able to accommodate all for breakfast by having some in the kitchen, with others seated in the dining area. There was quite enough food, and we could help ourselves to fresh fruit salad, our choices of cereal, and different kinds of bread. We enjoyed meeting some of her other guests. One visitor, spending several days there, felt comfortable and happy enough to help serve us breakfast. Another young couple, just off the Newfoundland ferry and too early to check in, were made to feel very welcome in an adjoining living area, where they had coffee and could rest until their room was ready. We were interested in hearing about their recent travel experiences which they shared with enthusiasm. This house is located close to the Newfoundland ferry, and is within easy driving distance to some of the sights that people visit when in the general area. If we were to do it again, I would definitely book several days here, making it a home base for side trips to places like the fortress at Louisburg, the Miner's Museam, and the town of Sydney itself. Definitely worth the price and absolutely worth the stay. Thanks Juana.

After spending the day on the ferry, Juana welcomed us into her beautiful and comfortable home. Juana is a gracious hostess, very attentive and kind and provided excellent suggestions for dinner. She ensured we were comfortable and not lacking anything. The room was great, we had a good sleep and left the next morning after a fabulous and filling breakfast. The home is easy to find and the area it is located in is quiet. We would definitely book again next time we travel to Cape Breton. Great job, Juana!!!

We booked 2 nights at the Heritage Home B&B , thinking it was in Sydney. When we arrived and discovered that North Sydney is a separate community from Sydney (not just the north end of the city), we thought to change our reservation to one night only and move on to Sydney. One night at Juana's changed our minds and we happily used this B&B as our base to explore the area for the full time.

Juana is warm, friendly and very chatty. She makes her guests feel very at home and she seems like an old friend immediately. Well done Juana! Everything about this place is good -- location, breakfasts, and comforts of the room.

Room Tip: Our room was ground floor at the back. Very quiet.

The Heritage Home felt like home to us. Juana treated us like family, always concerned about how comfortable we were and full of suggestions about how to enjoy Cape Breton. This is a great place to stay when visiting Louisburg Fortress for the day. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Heritage Home Bed and Breakfast during September this year and we found it a lovely, homely and very welcoming place to stay. Our host was Juana who told us for the past 35years she has dedicated her time to renovating and working on the B&B to make it the wonderful place it is today. The building was beautiful and situated in the esplanade of North Sydney, with ample parking and easy to find. We were welcomed by Juana who told us about the house, and showed us our room. The room had a double and a single bed, a sitting area and antique furnishings to create a comfortable room. She also invited us to use the library area outside the room door which was a small sitting area, bookshelf and perfect views outside the window. Juana made sure we knew our dinner options in town and also gave us some boardgames to use after dinner. Breakfast for us was with her in the kitchen which we didn't mind, as we had some lovely conversations over the meal. We had homemade quiche and other assortments of breakfast fruit, juice and sweet. We loved our overnight stay at the B&B and would highly recommend it as a perfect stay in Cape Breton.

I have been riding my motorcycle around the world for the past three and a half years, and I have to say that my stay at Heritage Home was one of the most comfortable and friendly environments that I have stayed in !! Juana was amazing, taking time to ensure that I was always comfortable and my needs attended to with minimum fuss and graciousness. She went out of her way and took the time to advise me on where to find the best meals and places of interest that I might have wanted to see. The breakfast spreads are legendary, and Juana goes to great lengths to ensure that all tastes are catered for. I spent three days there during a typical North Atlantic storm, waiting for the an opportunity to take the ferry to Newfoundland, and during the time that I was safely ensconced at the beautiful Heritage Home, Juana kept me entertained with her dry sense of humor and bonhomie.
If I ever found myself back in North Sydney, and needed accommodation, I would make a beeline for Heritage Home, no doubt about it !!

We had to make last minute reservations due to a change in the ferry schedule. We were glad we had a second opportunity to stay in North Sydney. Juana is a lovely hostess. We let her know that we were leaving EARLY the next morning so she set up the coffee to be ready, and left us some nicely wrapped, delicious muffins, and fresh fruit all set for us to take on the road. Our room was very comfortable with a small sitting area for reading.
