The hubby and I spent two nights here on a 23 day roadtrip. We had a room in the east building. It was immaculate. Besides the beds there were two extremely comfortable chairs. The bathroom was why I didn't give the room 5 stars. The sink had chips and the bottom of the toilet seat was missing two of the...

The lodge sits on a hillside overlooking a beautiful lake. The rooms are clean and spacious with nice balconies (lake view rooms). There is a small restaurant on site that serves breakfast and dinner. There is also a self serve laundrymat, swimming pool and fitness center.

I highly recommend Silver Dart Lodge. We were doing the cabot trail and we stayed at a chalet that was cozy and view was beautiful. Staff were wonderful and the restaurant on site was amazing! Thanks for the great stay!

This lodge is a couple of kilometres out of town but presumably most visitors have a car so that is not really a problem. It is set in some pleasant grounds and our room had a nice view over the water. The room was OK although a bit dated. We took the "Cabot Trail Touring Package" which gave us two...

The place itself is surprisingly nice for being in the middle of nowhere. The room was a little old and needed some updating but they had it looking pretty good. Bed wasn't super comfortable but was acceptable. Restaurant looks very nice inside but the food was average at best and a little overpriced. Given the fact there aren't many options...

Very nice room , all rooms have a nice view. The room was clean and the bathroom counter area was right as you walked into the room. It made the privacy alittle difficult. There is laundry on the premises, however quite pricey. It is a perfect location close to the beginning of the Cabot Trail. There is a restaurant and...

For a small town this lodge was amazing. Great location and a short walk to Baddeck where you could find food, shopping or enjoy a Ceilidh in the evening which is a must. Food at the restaurant was delicious for both Breakfast and Dinner. Very relaxing lodge, borrow a bike, take a walk on one of the trails or have...

Upon arrival we had trouble getting a parking space. Two buses loaded with people had parked taking up a great bit of the parking. The buses were also unloading with people walking all over the parking lot toward their respective rooms making it difficult to navigate. When we finally did get by to a distant parking space, I walked through...
