Our overnight stay with golf the next day was the plan. From the moment we arrived at The Birches everything was pretty well taken care of. My wife was given a tour of the facilities and we were told that in the morning our carts would be waiting for us and we could just drive over to the course. Perfect....

Stayed at the Birches last week. From the moment we walked through the door, we were treated to the best hospitality Cape Breton has to offer! We were guided to our room complete with canopy king size bed, fireplace and jet tub. We were served drinks on our balcony in the brilliant sunshine. Our meal at Malcolm's was absolutely terrific....

Greeted at the door upon our late night pre-arranged arrival we were welcomed warmly by the hosts/innkeepers, Barbara and Lawrence. Our adult sons who were travelling with us on a Cape Breton golfing trip were shown to a spacious room with two double beds, corner fireplace, french doors and wrap-around balcony. My husband and I were treated to a corner...

This was our 1st night's stop after the 1st leg of a 4 day sailing race in the Bras D'or Lakes, in Cape Breton, NS. (The inaugural Race The Cape) After 30 miles of sailing, this inn proved to be just what tired bodies needed. Lovely atmosphere, gracious hosts, excellant breakfast and great beds!

If you are looking for a quaint Victorian style B&B filled with chintz, look elsewhere. We stayed one night at "The Birches" en route back to mainland Nova Scotia after spending a day at Fortress Louisbourg. The building is a modern two story building with large lobby/entrance. The owners, Barbara and Lawrence, walk the extra mile to make sure you...

Spent the last leg of our CB golf trip here and it was certainly the highlight of the trip. The rooms were large, comfortable and well appointed. Loved the fact that all the rooms were so different but each luxurious in their own right. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Dinner at the restaurant was excellent! Great menu, terrific service.

Traveling from Florida to Nova Scotia, we spent two nights at The Birches, with golf at The Lakes Course next door. This was the front end of our trip and none of the hotels or golf courses during our stay could touch the quality and style of these great places. At the Birches, the rooms are large and very well...
