We arrived at Maison Fiset around dinner time ~7pm after a long day of driving. The inn is located conveniently along the Cabot Trail in Cheticamp. Our room was standalone (like a garage converted to a living space) from the main house, in the back. I would not recommend getting this room. Although it was newly renovated and nicely decorated,...

This was our favorite place we stayed during our week long vacation in Nova Scotia. Lyne is a super hostess and spent plenty of time helping us plan our few days along the Cabot Trail. Our room was modern, spotless, and well appointed including coffee/tea maker. Breakfast was made to order, delicious and we were not rushed to eat early.... More

I've graded this B&B lower than most for a primary reason. Unlike most B&B's, this property does not have an owner who resides on the property. Instead, the manager informs you that at night she is on call and lives 6 minutes away. I found that very unusual and not in keeping with what I consider the B&B norm. That... More

Lovely accommodations. Very clean and extremely updated. Every room had a lovely balcony and the location is excellent. We used this Inn as our home base to drive the Cabot Trail and it worked out perfectly. The breakfast was delicious and the staff went above and beyond. Lynne helped to plan our days and even surprised us with balloons in... More

This B & B is situated on the road next to the harbour and our room was very comfortable with tea and coffee making, a fridge and the added bonus of a balcony. Breakfast was cooked to order and was delicious. There is ample parking and rear access makes dealing with your luggage much easier. The staff are welcoming and... More

Antiques grace the main floor creating a traditional decor that harkens back to an earlier time . Top front rooms are suites that are well equipped with modern amenities, king size bed, soft robes etc. Staff are very friendly, helpful and informative, and prepared a breakfast for us and left it in the fridge the night before so we could...

The moment we walked into Maison Fiset we felt completely at home. It is a beautiful B&b, decorated with wonderful taste. The hostess Nicole greeted us and welcomed us. She helped us choose our breakfast that would be prepared for us the next morning and then she led us to our room (Cap Rouge). It was a beautiful room, with... More

The Maison Fiset House faces the water, and had it been a nicer and warmer day, we definitely would have taken advantage of the outdoor seating. The house was beautifully decorated and our room was well appointed. The staff were all super nice and the breakfast was decent. They even have you fill out an order form of what you... More

Lynn was the most helpful B&B hostess we've ever experienced. The room left no detail lacking. Breakfast was delicious, the scenery spectacular and the friendliness touching. The room was very comfortable, newly finished, a quiet rest, beautiful balcony for everyone and had everything we needed.

This is a small inn, and we initially wondered if we would be able to sleep, since we seemed to be able to hear through the walls. We need not have worried! Our room (#8) was very quiet and comfortable. The room was very well-appointed and modern, unexpectedly so! Clearly the owners have taken the time and investment to make... More
