Enjoyed our time at The Gatehouse

  • 4 of 5

Small house has been renovated and tastefully decorated. Had all the conveniences that we required. Is situated on the road into the small town of Baddeck, however all traffic dies off in early evening, which enables a quiet evening. Only thing missing is a small deck out front, to be able to sit end enjoy the afternoon sunshine, beverage and barbeque.

Very comfortable and cozy

We really enjoyed our stay of ten days. Close to downtown Baddeck, restaurants and shops. Centrally located for travel purposes of getting around Cape Breton. We would definitely book this premises again.

A cozy, comfortable, well-appointed, convenient place to stay in delightful Baddeck

  • 5 of 5

The Gatehouse turned out to be a great choice for me and my husband as a place to stay in Baddeck. Linda and Kerianne put a lot of care and attention on the details, from the "One Ingredient" coffee in the fridge and the nice assortment of tea to the large shower, from fresh wildflowers in a vase in our bedroom to good Wi-Fi. It was within easy walking distance of the village. Highly recommend it.

Nicely furnished small cottage in Baddeck

  • 5 of 5

The owner has decorated this little cottage in keeping with the beautiful area of Baddeck, at the heart of the famous Cabot Trail. Its size is just right for two people, though if you're used to a Queen bed, get cozy in a double! Ask for TV operating instructions when you check in. The bathroom, including shower, was roomy; the sitting room was comfortable, with a table for two. The kitchen had the basics for preparing meals, but with all the good restaurants in town, might not get as much use as you'd expect. The host Linda and her daughter Kerianne were most accommodating. You can walk through their property to the shore of Lake Bras D'Or, take in the view, or go for a refreshing swim. The main street of Baddeck is .4 mile away. Don't miss the ceilidh held every evening at the St. Michael Parish Hall. Incredible Cape Breton musicians!
