Reviewed 4 July 2017

I loved the Dunlop Inn. It is a cute little 5 room house right on the water. Stayed for 5 nights and used it as my home base while exploring the Cabot Trail and surrounding area. Rooms were simple, clean and well maintained. Carl and his wife Jerri-Ann run the inn and are wonderful. So friendly and always helpful with suggestions about the area, good places to eat, and very quick to respond to concerns (for example, my key started sticking in the locks, and they were quick to provide a replacement). Basic, serve yourself continental breakfast each morning which was fine. Honestly, if all I had was coffee and that waterfront view every morning I'd be content.

Overall an excellent stay. would definitely recommend this Inn to people traveling through Baddeck.

B & B with five rooms and a self serve continental breakfast. We booked the spinnacker room It was mentioned by the management at the time of booking that this room had a private bathroom across the hallway. When we saw the situation it was not acceptable. They changed us to a much better room on the ground floor . Of course everybody has to decide if they want to accept the inconvenience. Let me finish with some good points : charming staff, good location and a nice sundeck.

Room Tip: avoid room with separated bathroom.

The Dunlop Inn is a great place to stay in Baddeck. It's at the end of the main street, right on the water, with views to a nearby island and even an iconic Nova Scotia lighthouse. The colourful and comfy Muskoka chairs are impossible to resist!
The Mabel Bell room is large and comfortable, with a modern bathroom and a good shower. Bed and linens are first-rate.
The hosts are exceptional. Very hospitable and helpful in every way. A very generous self-serve continental breakfast is available in the super modern, bright kitchen overlooking the water. Nespresso coffee is a bonus!
We loved our three-night stay at the Dunlop Inn and would recommend it to anyone.

Such a great BB.

Everything is so modern (almost too modern for the area). So clean and crisp. The decor really matched the little town.

We started in the lighthouse room which was like staying in an IKEA showroom. The bathroom was large and comfortable and had heated floors.

All of downstairs is common area and I was able to watch TV late at night with a cup of tea undisturbed.

The back dock had an incredible view of the lake and light house.

Owners are so cute and sweet.

We stayed one night only unfortunately the weather was not the greatest so could not enjoy the property to the fullest. The hosts were excellent and our room was immaculate. We were in the Lighthouse Room overlooking the water. Beautifully appointed and spotless. Highly recommend this property. Only wish they had TV in the room.
