“Charming little B&B with wonderful, gracious hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

The Gagnon House is perfectly situated for those wanting to make the drive from Halifax and explore Cape Breton Island. Our room with a queen bed and private bath on the first floor was perfectly adequate for the two of us, and our breakfast in the morning was delicious. Our hosts, Judy and Daryl, are fantastic and gave us perfect advice and suggestions on what to do and see while we explored the area. Such good advice, in fact, that we literally came face-to-face with moose while hiking in Cape Breton Highland National Park!

Really nice B&B. Darryl and Judy have a beautiful clean home, and provide many healthy breakfast options. Would recommend this stop to all. Hope to one day visit again. You will not regret this choice. I stayed with my wife and our friends, and we all thought very highly of this B&B.

We chose this B and B as a halfway point on our drive from louisbourg to Halifax. Judy and Daryl greeted us warmly and showed us to a comfy upstairs room with a queen sized bed and a pull out couch for our daughter. The home is nicely furnished with a nice mix of modern and antiques. We enjoyed visiting with the hosts who shared their knowledge of Cape Breton and the music traditions of the area. The shared bathroom was spotless with plenty of towels. Judy prepared a nice breakfast of eggs, ham, toast and fruit. An excellent choice as our holiday drew to a close.

We loved our stay at the Gagnon House. Our room was very clean and comfortable with a nice breeze. The breakfast was home cooked, fresh and delicious. Darryl and Judy, the hosts, were welcoming yet discreet. We were really impressed with all the eco-friendly touches through the house and we really appreciated the knowledge of our hosts regarding hiking trails in Cape-Breton. We are looking forward to going back to this lovely B&B which offered everything we were looking, and more, for a great price.

Our stay was a wonderful experience. The room was very cozy with a very comfortable bed. We were apprehensive of the shared washroom but this was a non issue. Each morning we were treated to a wonderful breakfast and good company. We would recommend Judy and Darryl's bed and breakfast. The location worked well for day trips of the beautiful Cape Breton.

Only good things to say to Judy and Darryl for the kind warm and welcoming hospitality at their home. Lovely breakfast and great coffee. A good pit stop before driving on to Cape Breton only a few minutes drive from the causeway. The room was a bit small but the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom spotless and clean. Very highly recommended and excellent value for money. Plenty of places to eat nearby.
