My sister and I, along with our friend stayed two nights at The Birches. We were very impressed with the warm welcome by Barbara. We felt like we were visiting family.Our hosts were wonderful, making sure all of our needs were met and our comfort seemed to be a priority. The room was lovely, the hot tub devine.Barbara served us cold drinks while we soaked, after a long day of exploring the Cabot Trail. This place is above average,by far the best of all of our two weeks stay in Canada.Thanks, Larry & Barbara for a memorable experience. If we ever end up in Cape Breton again, we will be sure to stay here!!!

Our travel plans changed fairly last minute, and we tried to cancel 48 hrs ahead of time.. they refused and gave us no choice as we didnt meet the 72 hour cancellation policy.. Im sorry, but everywhere else in the area has a 48 hour cancellation so we were a bit bitter about it.. They did what they could to make us feel welcome on arrival and the Inn itself is very lovely and modern. Inn is located 30 min outside of Sydney with nothing close by for eating (though we were impressed with there in house, yet high end priced restaurant). This place is great for the 40+ crowd but wouldn't recommend it for the 20 something couples..

I had chosen this place since our origianl B & B was unable to keep us for four nights..how fortunate. Our room was perfect with the oversized bed and extra space to stretch out. Highlight was the evening dinner. My wife and I sat down for a quiet meal after three days of driving the Cabot Trail twice (once in each diection), and walking around the Louisbourg Fort. Shortly after sitting, a large party of people arrived to celebrate a birthday. My wife and I were not up to the noise level, so we politely asked if we could order and have the meal delivered to our room. Enter our host Barb, she said that she would take care of our needs and rather than have the staff climb the stairs to our room, led us to unused suite at the end of the hall on the main floor. She proceeded to have the table set in said suite. My wife and I sat in awe as were catered and served I might add by Barb. Bottle wine, fine music, and excellent food. What a way to end the tour of the island. Thanks Barb!!!

Barb was incredibly attentive during our four-night stay at the inn. She was very pleasant and accommodating as was her husband, Larry. We enjoyed meeting them and staying at their inn! The restaurant is amazing...best dinner we had during our entire trip! We splurged on the romance package and it is highly recommended (don't miss the chocolate! chocolate! chocolate! dessert). The hot tub out back was pure heaven after a long day of hiking and sight-seeing. Our room was finely decorated, roomy, clean, and comfortable. I'd go back to Cape Breton just to be able to stay at the Birches again!

It is in a beautiful setting and the accommodations were excellent. It was only 20 minutes from Sydney. We would highly recommend this inn to everyone as the owner and staff were very friendly and accommodating. The food was excellent also.
