A later booking on the Cabot Trail brought us to The Normaway Inn. Reception was polite and very helpful, as were all the staff we encountered. We had a room in the main building which I would describe as 'tired chic'. Nothing wrong with that as the room was spacious, clean and a delight to stay in. The bed was... More

This was recommended to us by family - and we are really glad we heeded their advice. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay here longer. Rooms were nice, dinner and breakfast were both very nice, and they had music in the evening. Very nice experience!

This was a total surprise on how quiet and accommodating this spot was. We called on same day and got 2 reservations for 1 bedroom cottage. They are clean and definitely dated but still very accommodating. Staff are very friendly and the food is higher cuisine. A bit confusing the menu but basically it amounts to different courses but they... More

We rented two cabins in August at the Normaway for a family group of 6. The cabins are very nice - rustic and comfortable but not palatial. The setting at Normaway is beautiful with its very long treed entry drive, its pastoral setting with horses, cattle and barns. The old farm house lodge adds to the character and offers live... More

David, Jim and crew cannot help themselves. They don't even try but you feel you have been there before and you feel as though they genuinely want you to stay and to return. The Barn on Wednesday night is a must do if you enjoy down home talent and wonderful Cape Breton music. (You had better like the fiddle). (Ponce... More

Our family of four enjoyed two nights here. The kids 7 and 10 years loved the big lawn to run around and loved feeding the horses. The cape Breton music in the barn was excellent. Food was also really good. A little bit out of the way, but well worth it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night at this charming, rustic inn on the Cabot Trail and wished we could have stayed longer! It was by far the best place we stayed on our Nova Scotia vacation, due to the warmth of the hospitality and the sense of truly being away from it all, while being very conveniently located. We were... More

We love it! Great experience,a really special property, lovely people. Incredible music in the barn, lots of history there, musicians jumping in, The brothers orchestrating it all are a hoot. We felt really lucky to join in, feels a bit like camp. Don't get fussy about quirks and rusticity, go with the flow. Our White cabin #14 was a lot... More

We were looking for a B&B on Cape Breton Island, but there was nothing available within our preferred destination of Baddeck. It was Regatta Week, and everything seemed to be booked. The Nova Scotia Tour Guide listed the Normaway, People who had reviewed it on Google Maps gave it favorable mention, so we checked availability. They had a room for... More
