We stayed at Green Highlander - Rosy Dawn room - on August 4 2009, our second night on Cape Breton Island.
The room is standard but not spectacular. However, the balcony overlooking the street and harbour is very nice.
The night we stayed they were having fireworks and they were great. The balcony was the perfect place to view them in comfort.
Breakfast the next morning at Yellow Cello was your standard restaurant breakfast fare. This Lodge is not the typical B&B experience but was certainly ok.
We had supper at the Baddeck Lobster Supper and the food was really good. The wait to get in was a bit long and hot. We thought they might have a take a number, we'll call you system which could work better so that a person could wait outside instead of a narrow hallway that services both the in and out traffic!

I booked this place and he raised the rates during the process - even though he had no real reason. We thought the photos and his description of the Boathouse looked great so we booked it anyways. What ever you do stay clear of the "Boathouse"!!!! We arrived and checked this place out - we walked away immediately. The owner was ignorant about it. Maybe he should have 'disclosed" a bit more about the property before we booked it! The "Boathouse" is essentially a garage that is situated in his back yard. He fails to tell you that it is on his postage size back yard about 20 feet from his own house. Even worse the "Boathouse" (and his own house) is positioned on a sliver of land that is wedged between the water and a secondary highway. Your pillows are literally less than 10' feet from the road. Traffic noise is one thing - but how about a vehicle plowing right into your room if it goes off the road! I suggest that you stay clear of this place. We ended up staying at the Telegraph Motel - staff were great - and we got 2 rooms for less that the price of the "Boathouse". Needless to say - with the owner being such a jerk - we did not eat at the Yellow Cello. It looked tacky anyways. Happy travelling.

Stayed here as our 2nd stop doing the Cabot Trail. Enjoyed being able to be "outside your room" in the sitting area/lounge to read, check emails and relax...all with a wonderful view of the harbour. Great location to explore the town and breakfast in the restaurant below was handy.
We had the downstairs 2 bedroom suite which worked well with our 8 year old daughter .. 2 other rooms upstairs (singles I think)

Only complaint would be that the Yellow Cello Cafe employee we went to get the key from at check-in was quite rude as though we were interupting him (he was wrapping napkins/silverware at the time) and the other tenants in what we believe was the apartment side of the same buliding the B&B was in were quite noisy all night long...voices, doors slamming etc.

All in all, it was a great location, clean and a nice roomy setting.

The Green Highlander Lodge is a great place to stay. The owner is friendly and courteous, the in town location is perfect for walkimg around and getting out to dinner, and the rooms are nice and well-kept. This is also a good place for small children, but ask for the room on the first floor.

During a trip through Cape Breton that included 1 night in Baddeck, we stayed at the Green Highlander, having booked it through the Visitor Center up the street; it is a small 3-room B&B that sits above the Yellow Cello Cafe, which is also owned by the same people who run the B&B. In addition, each room is named after a type of fly (fishing) and offers its own individual balcony. (Mine was Tawny Rose and overlooked the Public Dock.) Breakfast can be had at no extra cost downstairs at the aforementioned cafe, where you will need to pick-up/drop-off your keys. Very convenient to everything, but then, Baddeck is not a large village.
