“Beautiful setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

This place has such a great amount of space around it - beautiful! We went on the Segways and it was so much fun and well guided. It is convenient for the Baddeck area. Bring some supplies like coffee and you'll be set, although it isn't far into Baddeck for a supermarket.

Stayed August 2013, travelled with family

The hotel is in a secluded location with beautiful big grassland view. The cottages are big and clean with basic necessity. We had a good one night stay here while we are on the way to Cape Brenton. Would have given it five stars if the hotel manager has not mentioned that he preferred us to clean the dishes... Isn't that supposed to be covered by the fee?

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

We spent two nights at Hunter's Mountain Chalets while driving the Cabot Trail. The location is right at the base of the trail so the location is very convenient. Here's the thing: the place is clean, the people were lovely, and you get an entire apartment instead of a room for the night. I think travelers are hesitant to criticize well-run family places and so am I. However, for the sake of having all the information I will say that if you are used to the amenities of a hotel you may want to stay at one in the town of Baddeck. The decor here is "grandma's house" as are the bed linens. There are very few TV stations and reception for both TV and WiFi is spotty. There is no air conditioning. Whether or not Hunter's Mountain is for you completely depends on your personal preferences but you should make an informed choice.

We spent 3 very comfortable nights at Hunter's Mountain Chalets - a perfect base for exploring the Cabot Trail. Our chalet was very clean, comfortable, spacious and well-appointed - and the bathroom was huge! The wooden/panelled inside gave the chalet a rather alpine, rustic feel, which was lovely too. The views from the chalet are wonderful too. It is just off the Cabot Trail road, but the expansive wooded grounds completely conceal the road, and there is no noise from it either. There are also sign-posted walks around the grounds, although we unfortunately did not have time to explore these. We also had a very warm welcome from Roland, and he explained everything and answered all our questions.

Despite being outside Baddeck, it is very easy to get to the centre within 15 minutes (by car), and there are plenty of options there for eating if you don't want to cook. The chalets themselves have all the cooking facilities you would need though, and there is even a barbecue (shared, one between two chalets), and an outside decking/terrace area where this can be used.

We stayed at Hunters Mountain last August when we planned our trip around the Cabot Trail. Everything was perfection. From the warm welcome and taking us to the our cabin personally to show us where everything was, to the perfect location for round trip around the mountain. Loved sitting outside on our own deck and just enjoying nature.

I want to thank the post “Beautiful, Clean, Excellent - great location!” on
29 Oct 2012 by JanePhiladelphia_11.
We applaud her excellent review!
We stayed two nights in a comfy chalet
with all the ammenities and outdoor patio with bbq. These comforts allowed us to really enjoy our own lovely dinners and breakfast in a breathtaking setting on the gateway to the famous Cabot Trail. Everthing was first class including the care and kindness of the owners! Hunter's Mountain Chalets was a highlight of our Nova Scotia vacation!
