This B&B is delightfully decorated with each room having its own individual theme. The grounds are beautiful in a peaceful setting by a small lake. Our only disappointment was that we did not get to see the moose that had been lately visiting their lawn.

We have been on a month's trip around Nova Scotia, PEI and Quebec City. We have stayed in 12 different B&Bs and 2 hotels and this was the worst accommodation. We stayed in the Iris Suite which is 2 star at best. It was in bad condition, the room smelt, and was very shabby and looked as though the furniture... More

Very nice hosts. Beautiful grounds. Bed comforter and decorator pillows are dated and need updating to something that can be laundered between guests. Need more accurate advice to guests on driving times to ferry. Ok breakfast. Generous parking.

Persian hospitality combined with German perfection the new owners make you very welcome. Breakfast is great even for vegetarians. House is very cosy, unfortunately we did not see the moose which is supposed to walk the grounds in the morning. Try it out and you will agree!

I haven't been to other types of accommodations on the Cabot Trail, but I'm sure this B&B provides one of the most comfortable stays close to the National Park. It's situated about 30 min from Ingonish - so we managed to squeeze in a hike late afternoon before returning for a good night's sleep and preparing for our next big... More

The new owners are very nice but they do not know this area and we could not get much information from them. Breakfasts are average. Accommodations were fine although the noise from the nearby road made it not as quiet as we had hoped. View of the nearby pond is nice.

We had planned a trip to Cape Breton and had booked our room at the English Country Garden Inn months in advance. All the reviews we read focused on the owners and their knowledge of the area and their amazing breakfasts and delicious dinners. Upon arriving, we discovered that the inn had recently changed ownership. The new owners were very... More

The location is lovely right on the Cabot Trail and the new owners, Heinke and Jalal were perfect Host's. Heinke has a very infectious laugh and uses it often! We had a suite upstairs, bedroom, small "office" and bathroom, but it does not have a door just a curtain across the stairs. Since it is right above the dining room... More

Indian brook is a peaceful and verdant section of Cabot Trail; and nestled in these woods lies the very lovely English Country Garden B&B. Beyond the sheer natural beauty of the surroundings, our innkeepers, Heike and Jalal, were incredibly welcoming and informative. Our room (Cabin) was lovingly prepared for us, the very delicious breakfasts were served on beautiful china as... More

We stayed in the Russian Room, which was nice and quiet, being at the far end of the house with no shared walls and away from the main road. The decor was opulent and the room was very comfortable, with a little sitting area looking out over the lake and a jacuzzi tub. Our host, Ian, was very knowledgeable about... More
