The hotel is well situated - very short walk into the town. Its decore is a bit dated but was clean and well maintained. Rooms are large and the one we had also had a porch with chairs and looked to the water.

We had our dogs, so stayed in a half-chalet - a bit noisy with the family next door, but not a problem for us. Very nice room, with a great view. Terrific staff, very pleasant and helpful. Lots of amenities, which is great for families. Across the street from a gorgeous lake which is warm enough to swim. Had a... More

We had booked a room at the Silver Dart Lodge from the UK for one night as part of a tour of Nova Scotia.

Lots to like about this place, starting with the very comfortable king size bed in a large room that included a sitting area, plus a porch with a view of the lake. There's also a heated pool and a laundry building, which we were glad to have. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. Overall the facility was very... More

We chose the Silver Dart Lodge (named after the plane - history is everywhere!) because it is a great jumping off point for the Cabot Trail - whether you're travelling clockwise or counter clockwise. We liked the drive up to our room which was clean, comfortable and had a great view of the lake. Do not get sucked into their... More

The buildings, hallways and rooms look like a motel. But the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the lodge sits on a hill with a pleasing view of the water. The onsite restaurant is very good. It's a 15-minute walk to Baddeck which has a number of dining options. There's a nice swimming pool but a very disappointing fitness room.
