What a great place. If you ever wanted to stay somewhere that you feel like home but do not have to do anything but enjoy yourself this is the place for you. The smell of home made bread to the pizza you can not describe. What a great time.

There were 5 of us, we stayed in the 2 bedroom suite with pullout. Room was very nice and comfortable and clean. Breakfast was great, hand made cinnamon buns and bread! We were visiting from Ontario, just on cape breton for the night, and will definitely come back and stay here the next time we come. Thank you to everyone... More

The rooms are tastefully decorated and the beds are comfortable. The owner provides a wonderful breakfast with fresh baked cinnamon rolls. It's a short walk to town and the... More

It is just a place that people are enjoying. I love having the fresh air come in the room. The breakfast was good and the cinnamon rolls the... More

Stayed here our final night in Cape Breton! Staff was very friendly, room was clean with comfy bed. The room was very quiet, this motel was more like a bed and breakfast. The breakfast was included and there was fresh fruit, homemade biscuits and cinnamon buns! It was excellent!
