While waiting for the water in the Keurig to heat up so that I could have a pre-bedtime decaf I noticed on the bookshelf in the sitting room a selection that was entitled Fine Art. That title described for me all the aspects of this B and B. The decor and appointments were well thought out and the furniture fit the motif. There was a relaxed comfort in the home and it was clear the the proprietor had recently completed a thorough renovation of the "public" portion of the home as a B and B. The whole scheme comes together exceedingly well.
We were encouraged to use the home as our "home away from home" and, in contrast to some B and B's where you were expected to be away from the home during the bulk of the day, these landlords opened their home for your use throughout the day.
The recent renovations and new furnishings made the bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms clean, crisp and comfortable. The breakfasts were tasty and thoughtfully prepared in a setting that was classy with a mood set by very quietly playing classical music. On the one occasion where we needed to be out before 7:00 AM, muffins and a variety of cheeses were left next to the coffee machine to take with us.
The pricing for the stay was very reasonable, to the extent that we felt we received exceptional value for the cost. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone wanting accomodation in the Sydney area of Cape Breton. All Cape Breton communities and attactions were within a resonable distance from this location and the waterfront and mainstreet were within a 10 miniute walk.
