The place was spectacular! Century home furnished accordingly - overlooks ocean and golf course. Ray (aka Razor) was a great host with a vast knowledge of local history.Accommodations were spotless and proximity to the Cabot Trail great. Of all the 20+ places we stayed at on our motorcycle trip, this is by far the best place that we stayed! Ray...

I was disappointed and disgusted to learn that the Dusky Diamond B & B was not a B & B at all. It was more of a hostel, with exorbatant pricing. Breakfast was non-existant at this establishment. There was not even coffee, nor a person to make it and greet people. I had to go up the street where breakfast...

We booked two nights and bailed after the first night. It's an empty house that no one lives in with several small rooms now used as accommodations. They leave bread/bagels/yogurt in the fridge for your breakfast (nothing was was fresh and we did not take the chance of eating anything; thankfully there is a Robins Doughnut in town) and have...

We stayed in Inverness to visit the beach and do the Cabot Trail., this was the perfect spot. It is a beautiful old home with lots of charm and character, and the views were lovely to look at sitting on the up stairs balcony. As said in other reviews, it's not your basic B&B. We met people on the beach...

Although it is a lovely old home with a grand view of the water, the behaviour of the host was disappointing and most inappropriate. Because of his behaviour we had a restless night, we met with the other two guests in the kitchen in the morning and they felt the same way, if my husband hadn't been there we agreed...

My golf buddy and I stayed at the Dusky Diamond Labour Day weekend. From my initial contact with Ray to the day we arrived everything was great. Ray and Cheryl who own the Dusky Diamond were very warm, friendly and accommodating. Their place is nestled in the town of Inverness four minutes from Cabot Links. I would recommend Dusky Diamond...

We stayed for two nights and i must say, this was the oddest B&B stay i've ever had. I have yet to see and staff. The was a set of instructions on the table when we arrived and that was it. Breakfast was a get-it-yourself kind if affair. Rates were decent, rooms were older and basic.

I stayed at Dusky Diamond this July with a friend and our time there was very much enjoyed. It is a short walk from Inverness' amazing beach and the town as a whole is also easily reached on foot. We loved that the breakfast was self serve. It allowed for us to eat when we got up at 5:00 one...

We stayed at the Dusky Diamond in the middle of July. After a very long drive to Inverness, our family arrived to a warm, cozy and comfortable room. We reserved the bedroom with two beds and were very pleasantly surprised at how spacious the bedroom is. The B&B is home to a large kitchen to which guests are welcomed to...
