My Husband and I stayed at this bed and breakfast during our road trip through Cape Breton Island this fall. Situated midway around the Cabot trail, the location is a perfect place to stop and rest. Although the house is located right on the road through town, it is very quiet at night and a good place to catch up on your rest. The bed is very comfortable, and the rooms, although compact, contain all that you need, including a t.v, internet access, and a tiny washroom. Breakfast is included and self-served in a small kitchen area adjoining the two bedrooms. There is also a small living room area where guests can sit and relax. The friendly and pleasant owners live in the back of the home and allow their guests their privacy while checking in on them to make sure that everyone is comfortable. There are two adjoining bedrooms, with very little sound separation between them, so expect to hear the sounds of people up and moving about (mostly in the morning). The house, the decor, the fixtures, and its interior areas are newly renovated and spotless. We enjoyed the homemade muffins, the opportunity to make and serve ourselves breakfast, the pristine cleanliness, and the very interesting reading materials made available in the living room area. An excellent value for the money spent! Definitely a place well worth stopping at if you enjoy a small, homey, cozy, and super clean night on the road.
