My husband and I found this B & B through BBCanada. We were so happy to have found this beautiful country home. We enjoyed sitting in the lawn chairs in the field with a beer/wine listening to the apples fall off the trees. Laurel is kind and shared her knowledge of the Mabou area, Cape Breton and its beautiful music. We felt like we were visiting a friend. Our room was beautiful and large; 2 of us could get around easily without getting in each others way. It was spotless and very comfortable. Location was perfect and close to many attractions. We checked into Laurel's then toured around for 2 1/2 hours before heading off to a delicious supper at The Red Shoe Pub during which we listened to local excellent musicians Derrick & Melody Cameron, then walked down to the water and watched the fish jump for their supper. Breakfast was delicious, with local & organic ingredients. A perfect stay. Thank you!
