“Wonderful Time in Cape Breton!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011

We stayed in Suite 1 for three days mid-August. The room was perfect! Spacious and comfortable. Two large bedrooms and two bathrooms. Jacuzzi bath and king bed for us, full bath and one double and one twin bed for the kids. Beautiful large living space and kitchenette, perfect for breakfast and packing up lunches for our days on the Cabot Trail! Amazing view from our large veranda with our morning coffee and evening sunsets. Kids loved the pool. We had a great time. Thank you Werner for making our stay so enjoyable! The McKenzie's, Charlottetown, PEI!

Room Tip: We loved Suite 1, hardwood floors and very spacious. Two bedrooms and two baths!

While touring Maritime Canada in an RV we came upon the Margaree River View Inn by chance. We greatly enjoyed our brief stay, and not only as a welcome respite from the camper. The double room was clean and tidy and equipped with all the basics -- coffee maker, satellite TV, free Wi-Fi and phone. Outside were a nice swimming pool and the customary Canadian manicured lawns. What more could you want for $59 a night? The real treat was the nearby Margaree River, one of eastern Canada’s premier fishing streams. Owner Werner Buchhofer doubles as an expert fishing guide, with some 15 years of experience on the river. He has all the gear if you don’t.

Great find, great fishing!

Clean and very reasonably-priced accommodations along the Cabot Trail in central Cape Breton make me a frequent resident. I have been coming here every year now for the past ten years. The dances on Friday nights in the summer at Southwest Margaree and the afternoon ceilidhs on Saturdays at the Doryman in Chéticamp, a half hour drive from the Inn, as well as lots of hiking and photo opportunities in the area are the major draws for me. The Margarees are one of Cape Breton’s scenic glories and the Cape Breton Highlands National Park is close by in Chéticamp. This is not a luxury full-service summer resort, but an excellent motel to stay at when you are in the area or travelling through; the owner is very willing to work with you to make your stay a comfortable and pleasant one. The restaurant that once operated on the grounds is not now open, but there are other good restaurants in the area within an easy driving distance.

I have stayed at the Margaree Riverview Inn many times. I've always found it clean, quiet, and comfortable. It is very affordable considering the great location and incredible view. Moreover, management has always been accomodating and helpful.

We stayed in cabin 1, which has 2 really big bedrooms and an extra large living room. Kitchen small but functional. It was nice having two bathrooms. The view out the front door and from the porch was beautiful.
