Baddeck Heritage House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 17 Baddeck B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 August 2013

My husband and I traveled by motorcycle to the infamous Cabot Trail and this B & B was at the ideal location. Baddeck is at the beginning and end of the Cabot Trail. This quaint town is like picture postcard material...something like in a Norman Rockwell New England maritime village, and our hosts at the B & B (Liz & Dick) and the whole town like the characters in his paintings! They are the most down to earth friendly and lovely people!! As soon as we got to the B & B we felt so at home!! Dick actually moved his car out of the garage so we could park our bike in it! They were so accomadating ,and not in the least bit intrusive. Our room was so clean and comfortable...I needed a step stool to get in bed! It was the best sleep I ever had!!Liz's breakfasts were out of this world and she even gave us a choice of main course! Let me tell you it was hard to choose. Besides that they gave us a goody bag of their homemade scones and breads to take with us for the ride! Two days were not enough time to stay here... in fact I want to adopt them as my family!!!! After riding all day we picked up some Alexander Keiths, there was a guest frig to store them and Dick even made sure we had nice mugs instead of drinking from the can! We enjoyed them on their nice outside deck and they even had a little inside spot if the bugs got too much! This place was so homey and relaxing... walking distance to picturesque waterfront marina and nice shops and restaurant... and yet still maintained a close knit community atmosphere. The fact it was the our starting point to ride the Cabot Trail was perfect!!
I really miss this place...we'll just have to visit again!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Kidton Light room...the bed and pillows were so very comfortable!!

There is little I can add to the reviews of this superlative B&B.

From the moment of arrival, you will know that you have chosen the right place to stay. Liz and Dick provide the perfect combination of professionalism and charm. The rooms are spotless, the beds great. Though it was warm when we arrived, the room cooled off nicely for sleeping. But by far the best is breakfast - - this may have been the best breakfast I have ever had at a B&B. A week later, we're still talking about what we had and what we'd try the next time!

This was our last night in Cape Breton and our experience at Heritage House was a wonderful capstone to a great trip. As we were leaving, Liz and Dick presented us with left over scones and bread from breakfast. We savored those goodies all the way to Halifax.

HH is very convenient, just enough up the hill to be quiet but very easy walking to the restaurants (ask Liz and Dick for recommendation about where to eat) and to the evening Celidhs.

Watch for the red car that parks out front of the Celidh parish hall at 5 pm. Go pay your money and pick your seat then. You will probably not be able to get a seat if you wait until 7-7:30.

Next time we go to CBI we will stay here on the way out and the way back. It's that good.

Liz and Dick are welcoming and caring hosts. The B&B is spotless, located in town on a large
well landscaped lot a block from the main street. The room had a flat screen tv, a firm mattress, and a large bathroom The breakfast was first rate, and the other guests from Ohio and Ontario
joined in some stimulating conversation. .

My husband and I do not usually do B&B's, but after this experience we are B&B believers! The accommodations are very comfortable and the hospitality could not be better. Liz's breakfasts, alone, are worth staying an extra day for! We had never visited Nova Scotia and only had a few days to experience the best of NS and Cape Breton. Dick pulled out a map and showed us exactly how to make the best of our time there. He started by showing us where to go by and pick up a picnic lunch, then which trials would be the best to hike and finally where to stop for cookies on the way back. And then, Dick handed us a goody bag of scones (the best I've ever eaten) and muffins to take with us on our day of exploring. We were most grateful for these as we came off the Skyline Trail. He assured us that we could explore Cape Breton in one day and we did manage to do that. We left the Heritage House around 8:30 am, stopped at EVERY overlook, took a very long hike, had a picnic, browsed around Cheticamp, ate dinner in Ingonish, missed our turn for the ferry and finally arrived back "home" around 10 pm to find Dick patiently waiting to take our order for breakfast the next morning. Even though the weather was a bit misty and cool, it was a memorable day and so wonderful to come back to such cosy accommodations. My only regret is that I did not plan enough days to explore Beddeck more thoroughly. Guess we will have to come back!

My husband and I visited Baddeck last summer, and we were so very fortunate to stay here. Liz and Dick are the nicest people, and they serve the most delicious breakfasts!! The house is close to town, so most everything is within walking distance. The room was comfy, and we loved the bed (even though it was way high for my short legs!) LOL

You won't go wrong staying here!

We were lucky to have booked three nights, especially because Liz has three special breakfasts that you order the night before. Your selection will be prepared individually for you, and served at the time you also selected before hand. We tried all three - all delicious. The accommodations were spotless, and the bed very comfortable. Liz and Dick went out of there way to make the stay special, even to the point of helping us package unneeded luggage to mail back to the states (the little Miata trunk just wasn't big enough). The location is just right - easy walk to Baddeck center and the waterfront. Also, in 5 - 10 minutes you can walk through the neighborhood to the Alexander Graham Bell museum - a MUST when visiting this lovely section of Cape Breton. We are already planning to return to Nova Scotia next summer, with a stop over at Heritage House for a night or two.

This was the least expensive of seven B&Bs we stayed at on our East Coast road trip, and it was also one of the best. We stayed three nights in the Bras d'Or Room, which was clean and comfortable. The ensuite bathroom is very large and also very clean. The breakfasts offered were good and the food plentiful, although a bacon and eggs option would have been more to our taste. The host couple were friendly and helpful. All in all, we would heartily recommend Baddeck Heritage House.
