Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 August 2012 via mobile

The rooms at the Waters Edge a spacious and modern with balconies overlooking the lake. Staff are helpful and the art gallery / crafts store on the ground floor is worth a wander. The homemade breakfast is tasty if limited. Good for couples wanting a comfy stay.

I'm sitting on our deck at the Water's Edge Inn, looking at boats bobbing in the harbor, as the sun sets on our last night here. It's been a wonderful five days in Baddeck, highly due to having the luck to find this bit of heavenly lodging. Jeremy greeted us with his friendly manner when we arrived, and Mairi has hosted us each morning at breakfast - both are vey good representatives of the area.

Our room is a good size, very comfortable, with a great bed, nice shower (and tub), and that deck that faces the water. The breakfast room is part of the art gallery, so you get to start the morning surrounded by colorful artwork, and greeted by the cheerful Mairi.

We chose to plant ourselves down in one spot, as we did the usual tourist bits around the area - and it has worked out very well. In driving around to see various sites on the island, we saw nothing that came close to having the charm, and convenience, of this inn. I recommend it highly, and should we return, it would definitely be our first choice of lodging.

Room Tip: We had room 4, one of two facing the harbor on the top floor - out of six rooms, four have views to...

We cannot say enough good about our stay here at The Water's Edge Inn in Baddeck. A must stay location. Situated directly across from the warf and room #5 (booked due to a review we read on TripAdvisor) on the third floor had a spectacular view. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Warmly welcomed and given great recommendations (Bell Buoy Restaurant and Lynwood). The evening entertainment at the Parish was great - fiddling and guitar the evening we were there. Front row seats - we reserved and indicated we were staying at The Water's Edge and so we are not sure if that was the success of our front row seats but recommend you take it in. Great location to all shops and restuarants all in walking distance. The breakfast was really good (recommend the waffles) and the local breads are delicious. The sailing tour was spectacular and we would recommend it. Goes 4 times a day. Just sign up near the end of the warf - $25 per person (adult). Camilla was so friendly and warm and someone you could talk to for hours. Baddeck is a spectacular place to see and don't forget to go to the Alexander Graham Bell museum. What an amazing man! Recommend driving to Glace Bay to the Miner's Museum - was worth the trip.

Room Tip: Room #5 best view.

We stayed for three nights at the Waters Edge and were delighted with the room. the furnishings, the art on the walls, the fine linens, cleanliness and overall comfort. The Breakfast was more than a continental with waffles, fruit, cereals, good coffee and tea, and homemade breads, muffins, and fruit loaves. The staff even insisted we take muffins for our trip around the Cabot Trail and to Louisburg. Amoeba tour was awesome. The Gallery was a real find with unique works, and we did most of our Christmas shopping for next year. We will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies have a splendid view of the Bras dor Lakes and the waterfront at Baddeck.

The town of Baddeck and this Inn was a perfect stop for a good nights rest after driving around the Cabot Trail. The view was great, beds very comfortable, rooms were clean and spacious. The continental breakfast served in the morning was locally made and tasty. The location and staff were superb, I highly recommend.

My girlfriend and I were on a last-minute road trip to the Cabot Trail, and we stumbled on the Water's Edge. They had one room available so we took it. The room was comfortable and clean, and Wanda the cleaning lady was extra helpful. They gave us tips on the best places to see around the area, and had a great gallery of local artists in the Inn. Over all, we had an amazing stay, and most of it was because of the Water's Edge giving us such great local tips. If we go back, we will definitely stay there again, as it's located perfectly in the center of all the best sites in Cape Breton.

Pleasant B nB roomwise, with owners who are extremely friendly, interesting and helpful. As others have noted, not plush, probably somewhat overpriced, but occupies a nice spot across from the harbor.
