This wonderful hotel has all the qualities of a hotel but the charm of a bed-and-breakfast. It is centrally located in Cape Breton, allowing you easy all-points access to the gateways to the Highlands: Cheticamp, Ingonish, and Sydney. The rooms are quaint and very clean, and some second-floor rooms even have small balconies overlooking the town, lake, and lighthouse of Baddeck. There is a fine restaurant with occasional live entertainment of local music. Family-owned, your stay will feel like home as you embark on your tour of an amazing Cape Breton experience.
