#1 of 2 B&Bs / Inns in Kempt Head
Ciad Mile Failte! Seaweed and Sod Farm is a two-room Bed and Breakfast located off the beaten path in Kempt Head. We are centrally located between the Cabot Trail and the Fortress of Louisbourg. Overlooking the beautiful Bras d’Or Lake, we are the perfect place to relax, enjoy the sunset, and reset for your next day of exploring Cape Breton Island. We admit it. It’s a bit of drive to get here but, we think it’s worth it and we’re pretty sure you will too!

Terri is a terrific host. We spent a week at her B&B as a family with a 6 year old and a 1 year old. Checking out the farm animals was the highlight of our kids. The breakfast is amazing, and the rooms are lovely (in an old heritage house). We got surprised by a snow storm and couldn't leave for a day (since the road wasn't plowed yet). Terri made us even a lovely dinner. The rooms are nice. One had a great view of the bay. It is very quite. We had a great time. Much recommended.

A little off the beaten track, this farm is a delightful destination. We arrived at sunset, a special treat viewed from the property. The rooms were comfortable, very much part of the farmhouse. In the morning we were greeted by the turkeys, guinea fowl, chickens, llamas, horses, cats, dogs, etc. who live on the farm. Breakfast was delicious and nutritious shared together at that family table and accompanied by interesting conversation. Thanks Terri, Tom and Helen. Our time with you was memorable!

Five stars aren't enough!!!! Was there a week ago for three relaxing comfortable nights. My mother & I felt like welcomed friends the minute the door opened. Yummy food...especially the world famous Sunday waffles....shared with our hosts. Friendly dogs & cats....delightful & interesting barnyard menagerie. Great recommendations for things to see & delicious food. Terri & Dave made Cape Breton one of the best parts of our 16 day East Coast adventure. And...I'll be back!!!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit! If you get there early enough, ask to see the animals. As animal lovers, this totally made the experience. Bed was comfortable and the evening was nice and quiet. Will recommend to others

The house was very nice and we really liked the room. The colours in the room were very pretty and the decorations were well chosen. It was a very appealing and comfortable room. The bed was very comfortable and had very nice bedding. We knew going in that it was a shared bathroom, but did not know about the shortage of water. I had a quick, less-than-ten-minute shower, and ran out of water. As a B & B, and especially one with a shared bathroom where many people will be using the shower each morning, I feel that you need to make sure that there is enough water for everyone to have a leisurely shower if they should feel so inclined. Breakfast was delicious and included a very yummy fruit salad. It is a shared breakfast table where you eat with the people from the other room, Terri and her husband, and two other people (to whom we were not introduced). I like this classic "B&B vibe." One of the reasons why we picked this B & B was the fact that it was a farm with animals, and we wanted to get a chance to see the animals. Unfortunately, there is a $15 charge for a farm tour. This rubbed us the wrong way, as I think farm aspect is part of the charm of this B and B and should be included with the price of the room. To have to pay an additional $15 to see a few animals seems ridiculous and like they are just "nickel and diming" you. The owner tried to be friendly but was at times a bit abrasive. Overall, our stay was decent.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. I’m happy to hear that you liked the room and the decor and our B&B vibe. I am sorry to learn about the hot water shortage. Our B&B Guests always have priority on the hot water – I don’t do laundry or run the dishwasher (or even use my shower) while guests are on the premises. It sounds like everyone wanted a leisurely shower that morning. As for the farm tour, I used to charge a small fee for the farm tours but now it is a complimentary addition for the B&B Guests. Upon investigation I have discovered that I neglected to update that part in the “Guest Handbook”. I do apologize for the confusion. That explains why you didn’t ask to see the animals in the morning. But, kudos for reading the book! I didn’t think anyone actually did that. ~terri
