I shared a small homey suite that was very clean and comfortable with quilts on the beds and fully furnished kitchen. Good hiking trails nearby and the owner's dogs will gladly join you. Breakfast...

What a great place. If you ever wanted to stay somewhere that you feel like home but do not have to do anything but enjoy yourself this is the place for you. The smell of home made bread to the pizza you can not describe. What a great time.

We stayed at the Mabou River Inn on our way to the Cabot Trail. It is a wonderful change from the cookie cutter hotel rooms that we had been staying in. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the beds are comfortable. The owner provides a wonderful breakfast with fresh baked cinnamon rolls. It's a short walk to town and the... More

Stayed here our final night in Cape Breton! Staff was very friendly, room was clean with comfy bed. The room was very quiet, this motel was more like a bed and breakfast. The breakfast was included and there was fresh fruit, homemade biscuits and cinnamon buns! It was excellent!
