Excellent and clean. Rooms are much nicer than photos show....more like a boutique hotel really. Very clean and classy! 2 beautiful soft beds in a clean room. Excellent breaky though a bit odd as they are weird about quantities eaten! Excellent view.

The food is amazing and is home cooked with quality ingredients and recipes. In addition to it being a B & B they also offer dinner for a charge. We missed that the first night of our 2 night stay but had dinner the 2nd night. They have an extensive bar menu so then we enjoyed a scotch later in... More

Our room was spotless, spacious and comfortable. There is ample parking. The highlight for us was undoubtedly the food. From... More

The restaurant has beautiful seating on a veranda with a great view. The locally sourced food is good, but not outstanding. The cooking is imaginative. We found the desserts had too many added spices, where a simpler recipe would actually have been better.

We spent 3 very pleasant nights in one of the cabins. Thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations and features including a very comfortable and well equipped cabin plus the beautiful inn was a delightful place for meals.....excellent fare. Would love to return on our next Cabot Trail adventure.

Kitchen with coffee maker, microwave, stove, dorm style refrigerator, pots & pans, etc. Beautiful view from the deck. You can cook or partake of excellent breakfast or evening meal at the Inn. Foods are locally sourced and elegantly prepared. The Chanterelle Inn &... More

We stayed at Chanterelle Inn for a night on our trip to Cape Breton and the Cabot Trail. Friendly and welcoming staff, clean room, and beautiful setting. We had a terrific time and the screened in porch was perfect for our dinner. Thank you for a great stay!

This inn is unique in its ability to make you feel at home, if your home has a 5-star chef. Earlene uses (primarily organic) locally-sourced produce, meat, and fish for the most part, so her breakfast table far surpasses the typical, uninspired food most inns serve. The dishes made with the chanterelle mushrooms grown on the property, such as the... More

My husband and I stayed in Cottage #1, the wheelchair accessible cottage. Accessible it was not - the worst part was all of the little stones right in front of the ramp to the cottage. Very difficult to access; the ramp itself was wobbly; inside was OK but very crowded. We froze the first night as the heat had been... More

We assume that traveling as a handicapped person is difficult and try to go out of our way to to reduce the barriers. Because of our concern for these guests, one of whom was handicapped, we offered them the choice between a room in the inn or the cottage. Both meet the Province's structural requirements for accessibility. They chose the... More
