Our stay at Laverne's Riverside Cottage along the river was extremely peaceful, serene, cozy, calm and relaxing. We were impressed with the newly created nature trail and access to canoes for canoeing down the river. We were grateful to wake up at the base of the mountains each morning and to have every necessity we needed at our fingertips. The cottage was so clean and welcoming and we were pleased to arrive to a nice, warm fire on in the stove to heat up the beautiful space. The smell of the wood stove combined with excellent privacy and the quietness of nature really made our stay as a family remarkable! We will definitely be back again for multiple stays. Highly recommend this one of a kind, unique cottage experience by the river! This is a super special location and there is nothing else like it of its kind!

We stayed 3 nights with Laverne and Gordon and couldn't possibly have had better hosts or a better place to stay! The B&B is a few miles/kilometers from town near the end of a long dead end road, in the most tranquil and beautiful setting. We were given the entire upstairs of this beautiful old house that Gordon had lovingly restored and made much of the furniture. Laverne prepared scrumptious breakfasts each morning, and we delighted in hearing hearing their wonderful stories and sharing in conversations. Anyone planning to visit this area should make every effort to stay here. You will not be disappointed!

My family and I have just returned from our Nova Scotia vacation, and we were lucky enough to stay at Baddeck Riverside B&B. It was very close to town, yet located on a quiet road surrounded by farms. The view from our room was amazing as we could see the river. One morning while driving into town we even got to see a black bear walking in the middle of the road! You will not find more lovely and hospitable hosts than Laverne and Gordon. Her breakfasts were great- especially the blueberry pancakes with fresh maple syrup. The rooms were great and we got fantastic sleeps each night we were there. If we are ever down east again, we will be sure to look up our new friends in Baddeck. Thank you Laverne, Gordon, Jessie and Revel.

The Riverside B&B is on the top of our list of wonderful experiences. Laverne and Gordon were so warm and welcoming. The conversations were always memorable. We could've moved right in! The room had a gorgeous view of the river and sunset. Breakfast was a feast and set us up for the day. Laverne and Gordon made this stay incredibly special.

We stayed with Laverne, Gordon and Jesse for 3 nights back in September 2016. A lovely stay. As others have said its a bit out of town but that's exactly what makes this B&B so special. You're away from the tourist buses and all the hullabaloo, and instead, you'll have peace, quiet, walks to the river, picnics if you like, a spot to read, views from your bedroom window across the valley and Laverne's home cooked breakfasts (in our case, Gordon also cooked for us), and its only a 15 min drive to Baddeck and its restaurants. Laverne and Gordon might also join you for breakfast if you're lucky and they are engaging hosts with stories of Cape Breton, the district, their families, the house and everything in between. The breakfast jams and other preserves have all been made by Gordon, who seems to be able to turn his hand to anything. He's even made a replica of Bell's plane which is now on permanent exhibition in the RAF aircraft museum in southern England. Canine Jesse is a delight and in our whole time didn't utter one word! We also spent one of our evenings 'visiting' Laverne and Gordon in their lounge room, simply talking and story telling - most enjoyable. So unfortunately the couple who rated this B&B as 'terrible' missed one of the highlights of our 4 week journey around Cape Breton and the rest of 'the Maritimes'. We like staying in B&Bs for the very reason that they aren't hotels - its a sharing of someone's much loved home, albeit briefly, which is why we rate Riverside as a 5 star experience. We'd come back and stay in Laverne, Gordon and Jesse's home any day of the week. Peace, quiet and wonderful hosts.
