“Charming B&B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2009

We spent one night here while traveling through Nova Scotia. It is a large and comfortable house. We stayed in the Hearts and Flowers room. It was roomy and cozy, with a fireplace. The bathroom was huge and had a jet tub. The queen sized bed was extremely comfortable. On a cold and blustery day, this was a nice place to come back to after visiting Fort Louisbourg. The breakfast was quite good, with home made quiche, fruit, and toast. The hostesses were both very friendly and helpful.

Nice room. Nice size. Bathroom only had pedestal sink which makes it difficult to put your toiletries someplace. Small TV in room. Good breakfast. Quiet.

We stayed at the Cranberry Cove Inn for one night, as part of a trip around Cape Breton Island, NS. The Inn Keepers were friendly and the food in the dining room for dinner was spectacular! While we did not enjoy the breakfast as much, it was still good. The location was central to the Fortress, a major drawing point, as well as the lighthouse trail. You will need a car to travel around to the lighthouse hiking trail but it would be possible to walk to the Fortress Visitor Centre, where the tours start out. The Inn was very very clean, but to us the decorating left a little bit to be desired - very flowery (but that is a personal preference). We stayed in the Cranberry Suite, the bed was really comfortable, and the room was quite spacious. While wireless internet is offered, it really only worked on the main floor. We would stay again if visting Louisbourg.

We spent an evening at the Cranberry Cove Inn on our visit to Fort Louisbourg. The inn has been updated and our room was spotlessly clean. It is evident that the property is well loved and cared for. We had a nice breakfast and our host was more than accomodating. I would recommend a stay at the Cranberry Cove Inn.

The Fortress of Lousbourg is the reason for visiting Lousbourg. Make The Inn at Cranberry Cove your spot to rest and eat.The rooms are lovely--clean and comfortable. A great reason to stay here is the dining room--available only to guests. It's the best food in Louisbourg. The hosts are anxious to make your stay in Louisbourg a memorable one. Attention wine collectors--ask to bring your wine--the food deserves it!!

Cranberry Cove Inn is an excellent choice for your vacation in Louisburg. Extremely clean, wonderful large rooms with a short hallway inside your room leading to your own private bathroom (much nicer than the usual bathroom where the door opens onto your bed!). Breakfasts you'd never dream of making yourself, with David's special touch that not only taste fantastic, but are served by Germaine's warm commentary and wonderful sense of humour. You can't go wrong staying here....it is the best!

We spent three relaxing nights at Cranberry Cove. I highly reccomend it if you are in Nova Scotia. The hosts are warm and gracious, but also give you lots of space and privacy! The rooms are well appointed, cozy, and very clean! Breakfast was very good, but the portions could be a bit bigger!!

  • Liked — Beautiful, peaceful place!
  • Disliked — Breakfast was quite small, lacking selection!
