When we first arrived, the person checking us in was on the phone. She handed us our keys and a form to fill in and that was it...she seemed too busy to deal with us. When entering the Inn, there was a strong musty smell. The house and our room was very clean but I did find a silverfish in the bathroom at one point. The room is supposed to have a queen size bed but it is a double bed. The breakfast is ok but the bread is sliced so thin that it becomes hard when toasted. The only real positive thing going for the Inn is the wonderful view from the back deck. It was very busy when we checked out as well and then found out 2 days later that they charged us for an extra day on our credit card...we are still waiting for them to correct it. The first night there we ate at the Telegraph Inn (also owned by the same people). The food was ok (veggies were under cooked and they ran out of mussles) but there was no air conditioning so it was very warm inside. Although the view was great, I don't think we would return.

I have stayed in several inns and B&Bs around Nova Scotia and elsewhere. The view and atmosphere here are among the best in the province. You are literally at the water's edge, looking out at a lighthouse and a bay, and the hill where Alexander Graham Bell and his family once lived so they could better experience the beauty of the area. Enjoyed great hiking and photography opportunities nearby. Baddeck is very quiet this time of year, with a real village feel. Lots of attention to detail at the Inn, tastefully appointed and a relaxing common room to hang out. Skipped the breakfast to get an early start on a hike so cannot comment.

Yes, the view over the waterfront was nice, but when we booked the room, management did not tell us that it was right next to the Yacht Club the weekend of their annual party. That meant we were up until 2 a.m. annoyed by very loud music.

Second, the place is very vulnerable to crime. Because of the loud music, I could not sleep and went downstairs into the living room. I found the sliding glass doors wide open. There was a screen but it was not locked. Anyone could have easily gotten into that house. I called the emergency number to report the problem, but forget it -- don't expect a return call.

Third, the breakfast was awful. We were served bread (no bagels, muffins, rolls), weak coffee, and apples/bananas. The advertisement for this place should say "Bed but no sleep and meager eats." When we checked out, we nicely told management about the above problems, their exact comment was: "Is that all?" Not even an apology -- very arrogant. Stay somewhere else.

What a wonderful stay at the Dunlop Inn! We had the Heuser room. Small, but cozy, comfortable and charming. The house itself is beautiful with a kitchen open to the guest so you can cook your own meal if you so desire. The breakfast is simple: Homemade bread, jam, juice, milk, coffee or tea, fresh fruits. We met really nice people and everybody was having a great time and felt at home. The backyard has a deck right on the water and a gorgeous view. You can walk everywhere from the inn: restaurants, boutiques, Alexander Graham Bell museum... or take a boat to the little island. Would definitely recommend it!

Five rooms, all but one en suite. Four up some pretty steep stairs on the second floor. Unless you travel light, go for the one on the first level.

Very nicely furnished with direct waterfront views in a convneient location across the street from the Bell Museum.

Adequate breakfast.
