We ended up cancelling our other reservation at another hotel and booked at Maison Fiset at the last minute. They were very accomodating and the price included a delicious hot breakfast. The place was very clean, quiet and had a lovely view of the water. I would definitely recommend Maison Fiset.

The inn is extremely clean, beds are very comfortable, everything you need in the bathroom, however the room (room 7) was just a touch on the small side, but came with a private balcony which was wonderful to take in the sea air. Lynn was very fun to speak with, Knowledgable and gave us some great tips about the area. Madeline prepared an excellent breakfast for us. She made the best French toast and the coffee was excellent. We would stay here again.

Perfectly delightful B&B experience in Chéticamp, Cape Breton. Very pleasant host, good breakfast, comfortable and quiet room. The owner also pre-booked a tee-time for me at Le Portage Golf Club (which is also very nice, and in perfect condition). Definitely recommended.

Elegant historic home, 8 rooms & suites, some with private balconies for magnificent views of the harbour & beautiful sunsets; our suite "L'isle de Cheticamp" was outstanding, super comfortable king bed, luxurious furnishings, linens & pillows, large jacuzzi bath, fridge, just a few of the many amenities to make your stay amazing! Very quiet & relaxing surroundings! This inn was extremely clean and safety protocols evident throughout. The complimentary full hot breakfast cooked to order was a great start to our day. Private free parking at back. Walking distance to many restaurants & shops. Very pleasant & friendly staff!
Owner Lyne Larade, an extremely pleasant & welcoming host, was most knowledgeable of the area & its history, well informed & helpful to make our trip most enjoyable. Fall colours were just starting to appear ... made our trip even more scenic! Thank you, Lyne !

The Maison Fiset House overlooks Cheticamp Harbor on the Cabot Trail Rd. We only stayed one very comfortable night here. As intrigued as we were with the presence of a jacuzzi in the room proper, we didn't make use, but we could have. The large comfortable king size bed fit easily in our "Cheticamp Room." There was plenty of bureau space, both for hanging and folded clothes. A door on our 2nd floor room opened to a small deck complete with seating and a partition separating our "deck space" from the room across the hall. The best thing about the Maison Fiset was our hostess, Lynn. She recommended an excellent local restaurant upon our arrival but it was at the delicious full breakfast where she excelled. Unfurling a map of the Cabot Trail Park she detailed all of the most desirable trails and places of note that we had to visit in the nearby Highlands National Park, and then some. Staying at the Maison Fiset House was one of the high points of our Canadian trip.

I spent 3 nights at Maison Friset & it was an enjoyable stay. Staff friendly and go that extra mile. The room was a good size with ensuite and the bed was so comfortable. Breakfast is included and there is a great choice of food.There is free parking and it is near the local restaurant’s and local tourist offices. Maison Friset is a must stay at place and I highly recommend it.

Excellent accommodation. Our 3 night stay was absolutely perfect. Will definitely rebook if I return to that area again! Owner Lyne was great to work with as we were a large group of friends traveling through the area. We booked the entire property while we were there and each room and both rentals are very lovely. The rentals in the back offer a little more privacy and are stocked with anything you could possibly need.

We were very lucky to get a last minute booking here for one night July 2022.
The house is beautiful, right on the waterfront and we received another wonderful Cape Breton welcome despite being late for check in.
The room was nicely furnished, comfy bed, lovely ensuite, good linens and towels.
Continental breakfast included juice, cereal, fresh fruit, eggs, muffins, pastries, toast, tea and coffee.
Can definitely recommend

Spent two nights here to explore the iconic skyline trail and whale watching. It is a homey place, perhaps stuffed with too much furniture in a heavy style , perhaps unsuited for a seaside location. However, it is spotless. The hotel manager is a charming lady that goes out of her way to help customers. Overall, a good place to stay.

This place is a beautiful little gem. Rooms are beautifully set up with all the attention to detail to make your stay luxurious and comfortable. Impeccably clean, and the owner Lynne is so welcoming and helpful. We highly recommend it and it’s a great reason to visit Cheticamp.
