We were looking forward to our trip around Cape Breton and after reading reviews on TA we were excited about this B&B. So we arrived on a day of torrential rain after driving from Baddeck, we were greeted warmly and shown to our room which was very nice. We then asked where would be the best place to get some dinner for the evening (it was 3pm at this time) as we knew it was shoulder season so less likely for things to be open late. The suggestion (albeit fine) was to nip to the take out down the road and grab something there as they closed at 5:30. Off we went; upon arrival we figured it was a grocery store as well and ideally wanted to eat something a little more nutritious. We phoned back to Oakwood and asked if may borrow the kitchen to cook some pasta "no" was the straight answer. So, we asked if we could use a microwave to heat some soup instead "no" again... To cut a long story short we ate at 4pm and not again till the following morning which was to a poor/average breakfast. There was no sympathy or lack of realisation to the situation we were in and not being able to accommodate a microwave for 5 minutes so we could eat some dinner was so poor on their behalf as hosts. Disappointing stay.
