Cute little cottage in a terrific location

  • 4 of 5

This house was a great base camp for exploring Baddeck. The location is unbeatable--you can walk to the grocery store, local restaurants, pubs, etc. The bed was extremely comfortable, the shower has wonderful water pressure, and the cottage itself is more than adequate for two adults. There aren't many frills or indulgences (cooking can be a bit of a trick), but the location and overall comfort can't be beat. An easy recommendation.

Very much enjoyed our stay. Linda went out of her way to help us out on our luggage that had travel plans different than ours. We were able to explore the beautiful town - she met delivery driver with our luggage. The gatehouse was perfect - thanks again

nice location, cozy place

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 nights at this place. Very clean and cozy small house. Behind the house, there are very delicious apples (i hope Linda didn't mind we had some :)) Affordable price, close to everything.

Thank you, Linda, for your hospitality.

Sweet little cottage

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our 2 nights at the Gatehouse. It was comfortable and cozy and had everything we needed. Baddeck was actually a bit of a busy town so we were happy to be a few minutes just outside. Still close enough to walk. It was quiet for sleeping. We loved the apple trees out the back window.
