We lucked into the Lighthouse suite which has panoramic views of the waterfront, Kidstone Island and the gorgeous bay.Hostess Geri Dunlop and her fiancee Carl were fantastic. Our accommodations were very comfortable and exceeded our expectations. This Inn was described to us as the "best... More

We were her in early May and we're happy to find this little B&B. We recommended it to others we met after our stay. Rooms are small and cozy. One of the rooms (Spinnaker) has a bathroom separate from the room, but this wasn't a problem at all. Good continental breakfast downstairs and nice view of the water. Hosts were... More

This place is perfect! Perfectly renovated, perfectly clean, perfect amenities (super duper common kitchen, living room, TV room)... at an extremely reasonable price and on the water edge! If we were closer, we'd be in it!! I love the innkeeper Jeri-Anne, too, what a sweetheart! Highly recommended.

The views from the dining and sitting rooms, and from our bedroom, were mesmerizing. Water, lighthouse, boats, plus tree-covered hills--all right outside the windows (any closer and we would have been underwater). Also nice location at the edge of town, across the street from Alexander Graham Bell historic site, with a good cafe up the street and a variety of... More

We traveled with our 3 year old and had a blast in the Lighthouse room. The room is cozy and modern with an amazing view of the lighthouse. The staff is super nice and the breakfast is nice. Will definitely come back in the summer!

Great B&B. Very clean. Loved the antiques. Bedding and towels were first class. Comfy, quiet, Lighthouse room overlooks the water. Lots of windows for fresh sea air. Hostess was sweet and set up the breakfast as if it was her own kitchen. You can sit out on the deck or around the kitchen island and chat with other guests. Right... More

The Dunlop Inn is a beautiful house right on the water, and the upstairs Lighthouse Room has a 5 star view of the lake and, of course, the lighthouse. It boasts a very comfortable bed, modern furnishings, and a bright bathroom, all spotlessly clean. Jerryanne is a cheerful, competent innkeeper who provides an ample continental breakfast each morning. The inn... More

This is a luxury B&B set right in the heart of Baddeck and literally on the lakeside - it is a good base for exploring Cape Breton & Cabot Trail.

“had the spinaker (sp?) room with the separate private bathroom across the hall...may be a nuisance if you're up frequently through the night”
