“great base camp for touring cape breton island”
Reviewed January 7, 2005

Our family visited the inverary this past summer. The accomodations were simple, but clean and well kept. The lake is beautiful and the dock area has paddle boats, kayaks, canoes, and paddle bikes for rent ($5/day) to hotel guests. Our children (ages 8,12, and 14) spent hours paddling around the lake near the harbor. They found starfish, oysters, and numerous other treasures. The hotel has suitable food, nothing special, but there are several restaurants within walking distance in the small town of Baddeck. This is a great starting point or base camp if you are planning on exploring the Cabot Trail. The national park entrance is about a 40 minute drive, but at least you are centrally located between the 2 halves of the Cabot Trail. The staff was helpful and pleasant. It is definately a place our family would stay again.

Food good and staff attentive and pleasant. Main building quite old. Bathrooms have been renovated but rest of furniture old, creaky and in disrepair. We were told it was "antique" but that is just not true. The drawers in the dressers required side to side movement just to get them in or out. No attempt has been made to refinish or even make the furniture serviceable. Television picture snowy and there is no internet access from the rooms unless you use your own telephone to dialup. In the lobby a less-than-adequate dialup computer for a single guest to use. While the surroundings are indeed quite pleasnt and the views excellent, the resort does not neet standards that we expected for the hefty room rent.

We recently spent two nights at the Inverary in Baddeck. A great spot with full facilities (spa, tennis, restaurant, pub). Staff was very nice, friendly and helpful. The room was fine if a bit dated by big city standards. Don't miss the Alexander Graham Bell historic site while in Baddeck.

This Lodge is right next and currently related to Inverary Resort.
It is a pleasant, but not lavish hotel that provides good service and we feel a good value for $ spent.
You can use the Inverary pool and ammenities. We had breakfasts at the onsite restaurant and they were good.

Our room provided a respectable view of the lake!

We would recommend this for those who don't want to spend for the luxury of Inverary but still want nice clean & pleasant accommodations.

Spent four days at the Inverary Resort in Baddeck. Surroundings were indescribably beautiful and the natives and staff are as nice as can be. Town was teeny, tiny, so don't expect much in the way of shopping in Baddeck. Resort was very comfortable, well maintained and the rooms were quiet, clean and reasonably elegantly furnished. Food was very good.

The location couldn't be more beautiful. The Inverary in is nestled in Cape Breton Island, a wonderful place. Spent alot of time there as a child, staying at the Inn. I'll be going back soon to stay again. The accomadations are
beautiful, the area is grand. Very down to earth to comfortable. I loved it!
