Having checked in at the hotel further up the street (very clear instructions with booking), we didn't really know what to expect. My first 10 minutes were spent taking photographs of all the downstairs rooms to send to my daughter - what a lovely house and so beautifully designed. It is so clean; spotless in fact. There is a gleaming...

En route to the Cabot Trail my friend and I enjoyed a lovely two night stay at The Dunlop Inn. The hospitality, breakfast and views were spectacular. A highlight was cracking open a bottle of Annapolis Valley sparkling wine on the deck overlooking the lake as the sun set. The town of Baddeck is a gem and a great starting...

Our Cabot Trail vacation started with check-in at Dunlop Inn as our base for travel. 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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

This B&B is located directly on the Bra'dor Lakes. You have access to the entire house, which is charming & beautifully decorated ! A self serve continental breakfast is laid out for you each morning . The view , overlooking the water, as we sat in the evening sipping a glass of wine, was second to none ! The innkeeper...

“Ask for a room with views of the water. One room has a bathroom on the opposite end of the hall (Spinnaker).”

“We chose a room with its own private bathroom. Not every room has one. But this is an important asset for us.”
