“Great place to stay on the Cabot Trail”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We stayed in a one bedroom chalet with separate living/kitchen area. The rooms were comfortable and very clean, and the location was great. It was far enough outside of Baddeck to be very quiet, but close enough that it only takes a few minutes to get into town. Roland was very helpful and provided us with everything we needed. The attached sunset picture was taken from the room.

Stayed at Hunter's Mountain Chalet while exploring Cape Breton. The chalet was a modular duplex that was very comfortable for the 2 couples that originally booked to 2 nights. We added an additional night in order to explore the Fortress of Louisbourg. Roland, the owner, was very "hands on" during our stay; giving good advice and meeting all of our needs while we were there. He seemed like an old friend that was there to make our stay as enjoyable as he could. We had no problem asking for the additional night which he immediately agreed to.

The chalet was clean and well maintained. Television and cable worked fine. Baddeck is about a 12 to 15 minute drive and is the closes place to find something to eat. We all loved Baddeck and Cape Brenton. It was nice to be able to have a comfortable, quiet place to rest after a full day of touring the area.

Thank you Roland!!

Room Tip: HIghwheeler Cafe in Baddeck is the place to go for breakfast. Everything there is great. We bought b...

I really enjoyed my 3 nights stay in one of the apartment style suite. We're all by ourselves and have a great time. The room is well maintained and very clean. Rolland, the owner, was quite friendly and helpful. Beautiful view outside our window.... good value..

I really enjoyed my two nights stay...The Chalet was spotless and had all the accommodations we needed and then some...Rolland was the perfect "Hostess" when we arrived. Even though we arrived later than planned...he was there to greet us and personally show us the way to our chalet.He even took the time to show us around the apartment and explain everything . I personally would recommend Hunters Mountain Chalet...I most definitely will go again if ever up that way.

We stayed in one of the apartment style rooms and that was exactly how it felt. We were on our own. The bed wasn't even made when we arrived - the sheets/blankets were in the closet. Have to say that and the fact that coffee was not provided were huge surprises. And for the price of the room, one coffee a day doesn't seem like too much to expect. Selling bags of coffee at the office seemed a bit petty.

The place was extremely clean, quiet and cozy, and the hot water was hot. The owner was more than accommodating when asked for something, but it may have been a bit embarrassing to have to ask for an extra roll of toilet paper - phew, we made it!

The place seems to have been renovated about 10 yrs ago, but not with a high quality of products, therefore the place is starting to show it's age. Several visible 'temporary' repairs.

The location was good in the sense that there was lots of roaming space right on the property and being set back from the road meant there was no traffic sound. And the drive to Baddeck was on a matter of a few minutes.

All in all, I enjoyed my long weekend in Cape Breton, but still a bit undecided how I feel about these accommodations.

My husband and I had a wonderful four night stay in one of the Hunter's Mountain one bedroom apartments. We arrived much later than expected following a long drive and Roland, one of the owners, was still very welcoming and helpful despite the late hour. He even showed us to our accommodation personally and explained the amenities.

The apartment was clean, well-equipped, and very comfortable. For people with dogs this is an ideal place, as there are lovely trails that got high ratings from our lab mix. Each apartment also has a private, and gated, deck, which is perfect for families with pets.

Other highlights included the beautiful view of meadow and conifers out of the large picture window, well appointed kitchen, and a comfortable bed after a day of exploring the park. There's even an electric fireplace that is pretty lifelike and adds to the cozy atmosphere!

We will certainly be returning and will recommend Hunter's Mountain Chalets.

Room Tip: We stayed in an end apartment which was ideal in terms of privacy. However, all apartments and chale...

We spent three nights at Hunters Chalets. Clean, comfortable and quiet. Attended the local ceilidh that was just wonderful. We were told by the folks operating the Lobster Suppers that there was no lobster to buy. WRONG! We bought four nice sized for $30. Enjoyed every bite. Would surely stay here again
