Through no fault of anyone, we weren't able to stay. The remnants of Hurricane Mathew took out electrical power the night before we were to check in. I give the proprietor Josie high marks for her efforts to contact us in advance. We were exploring Cape Breton during the day and expected arrival by early evening. I wasn't able to... More

I chose the Red Roof because of these TripAdvisor reviews and I am happy to report that there is no false advertising going on here. Josee and Jim met us in the driveway with hearty handshakes and we were then met by dog #1 - Charlie. We stayed only one night in the Sunset Room and we were very sad... More

If you are a nature lover, you should immediately feel at home at this beautiful B&B. Josée and Jim are amazing and have a beautiful property with many friendly animals. As backyard chicken ranchers, we were pleasantly surprised with young chicks and the free range chickens. Alpacas and donkeys were also very fun to see for the kids. We stayed... More

We only had one night here, as a stopover between Kejimkujik and Cape Breton. We had the family suite, which is a beautiful big room over the garage (very quiet). A great place to recover after five days of camping. The house is big and beautiful, and the hosts are so welcoming - especially the dogs!.

A very relaxed stay in a stunning building with lovely hosts. A pleasant drive into Antigonish which we really liked as a small town. Josee recommended a great restaurant and her breakfasts were true home cooking. As a bonus her many and varied dogs were friendly and the alpacas very cute!

We loved the stay at this B&B. Josie has a passion for hosting and sharing her love of animals and for cooking. She made us feel right at home by giving us a tour of the chickens, alpacas and donkeys. Her three dogs are very well trained and beautiful rescues.

Our family of 5 stayed with Jim and Josie on dropping off our oldest at St FX university in Antigonish. It's about a half hour drive to the lovely university town.
