“Beautiful place to stay.”
Reviewed July 25, 2010

The Cranberry Cove is a beautiful B&B with many amenities for guests. The rooms are large, beautifully decorated and quite comfortable. There is a computer for guest use and also wifi is available. The location is great for visiting the Fortress. The breakfast was delicious. There was coffee, tea, fruit, cereal, granola, quiche and toast. Everything was delicious.

The location is central to everything you need while being in a beautiful spot. The inn is very well appointed complete with its individual room themes. The people were kind, courteous and very helpful. The breakfast was great as well,

The Cranberry Cove Hotel is simply a very nice bed & breakfast. I wish I could wake up every morning here. The building and rooms are well kept and beautifully decorated (each room has its own theme). The staff is accomdating, friendly, and helpful. The location is perfect - just a few minutes from the Fortress of Louisbourg and the downtown area (such as it is). The food at breakfast was very, very good! Make sure you get the hot stuff. We really enjoyed this place and were sorry to leave.

The main thing (and almost, the only thing) in Louisbourg is the Fortress, but make sure to take some time to drive around and see the cute beaches and vista points. A few things in the downtown are there too - gift shops, a few small restaurants, a train museum, possibly a theater. There was a fish packing plant there, though I would guess few visitors would find that interesting, other than true fish-o-philes.

The cost of the Cranberry Cove was a bit higher than other places in town but was worth it.

My wife and I spent only one night at the Cranberry Cove Inn. It was as beautiful as expected. The proximity to the fort is great. The breakfast was very good and filling. The only down side to our stay was that dinner was not available. Oh well, we had a wonderful dinner at the Grub Steak anyways. I would recommned this B and B. Thanks for taking such good care of us.

Extremely convenient location for visiting the Fortress of Louisbourg. Note many housing options in the town of Louisnbourg and this has to be one of the best. The Inn's common areas are very nice as are the guest rooms. Its upscale for Cape Breton. Breakfast is quite good. Nothing special or particularly nice about the physical location except its proximity to the Fortress and the town.

Cranberry Cove Inn is a big red house located right in the heart of Louisbourg and is very close to shops and restaurants in town. Our room, Field and Stream, was decorated in sort of a lodge style and was very comfortable. We enjoyed the comfortable bed and the large spa tub in the bathroom. The inn was over all very clean, and the hostess, Germaine, was friendly and helpful with information.

We do a lot of sightseeing during the day and cannot always find the time to have lunch, so we depend on a large filling breakfast, and for the most part, the breakfasts at Cranberry Cove filled the bill. The coffee was delicious.

We spent one night here while traveling through Nova Scotia. It is a large and comfortable house. We stayed in the Hearts and Flowers room. It was roomy and cozy, with a fireplace. The bathroom was huge and had a jet tub. The queen sized bed was extremely comfortable. On a cold and blustery day, this was a nice place to come back to after visiting Fort Louisbourg. The breakfast was quite good, with home made quiche, fruit, and toast. The hostesses were both very friendly and helpful.
