We recently stayed several nights at the Waters Edge and really enjoyed it. The room was very clean and the location was convenient to all the shops and restaurants in town. Breakfast was good and featured local blueberries and fresh made breads and muffins. The hosts (Moira I believe) and her family were extremely friendly and personable. They had many...

This was the best bed we had in our ten day jaunt through the Maritimes. The staff / owners were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The hotel is right on the harbor with easy walks to dining and shopping, but not on the packed main drag.

We had a great time at the Water's Edge. Camilla warmly welcomed us right away. Her husband and daughter were delightful too. Breakfast was great. The room was very sweet overlooking the water. They treated us like family and it was lovely to see Camilla carrying her grandson around at breakfast. They were so kind and helpful, even mailed a...

My room is quaint and cozy, with decor that feels like I'm at my house. The young lady was friendly at our reception and a to tpo it all off, there's a cool art gallery built in too! Just walk across the street and you're at the marina. Beautiful little breakfast room.

Stayed two nights, great base of operation. Across the street from the harbor and yacht club. Friendly staff, studio apartment upstairs has terrific view of harbor. Suggest, however, they get a newer, updated and quieter window air conditioner.

The staff were five star friendly and the location is ideal. Our studio was spacious, comfortable and faced the water. We went kayaking from right outside our front door. The free wifi never worked in our room, which is important because cell reception is very poor in Baddeck. We were impressed with the locally made gluten free toast.

Water's Edge is right by the harbour - they own the property across the road which undeveloped so views/access are not impacted. We had a room upstairs at the back so it was quiet and well furnished. As a family of 3 there were some places that were challenged to accommodate without a second room, and Water's Edge easily accommodated...

We stayed here for two nights, and loved it. Our room (2) was on the first floor, with steps up to one side of the hall and a ramp up yo the other - handy for heavy cases. It was large and nicely (if simply), with a huge and comfortable bed. Some nice touches: Venetian blinds that closed up or...
