We came to Baddeck because it is centrally located to visit the many places on Cape Breton Island (North East end of Nova Scotia). It is an excellent location to negotiate the picturesque Cabot Trail and has several advantages. It is the location of the Alexander Graham Bell museum. It is 10 minutes from the Gaelic College. It is a village that is quiet and has a beautiful harbor. Turns out that Alex Bell picked the location for his home away from Washington, DC so that gives you a clue about the environment. There is a great boardwalk for quiet walks at habor edge - Bell and his wife can be found hanging out there any day you would like to meet them.
We spent 3 days at this site and found the Inn probably the best choice in town and excellent value. It has a fine restaurant for all meals and specialize in lobster dinners. Food was as good as you will get and prices are reasonable - $21 for that lobster dinner. The room we had upstairs over the office and restaurant was spacious, period furniture, good bed and private bath, all spotless. Common area was nicely appointed but limited is size. This Inn was was an excellent value pick and we will use it again if we ever have another chance to visit the Canadian Maritimes.
If you want high-end accommodations for this area - the Keltic Lodge some 94 km up the trail will be happy for your credit card and can no doubt provide all the trimmings and breathtaking views.
