What’s not to like? Lovely place, lovely stafff, pub grub, comfortable room and bed. Overlooking the lake, and next to the Gighland village centre, there’s enough here for a night as you tour Cape Breton.

There is a short set of interior steps from the front entrance to the rear door (the property sits on a hill) but you will access the upper rooms from the back parking lot so there is only one step up into the rooms.
