Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed our visit to Scottish Thistle/Baddeck very much. We were very impressed with the speed that the resort attended to our call when we reported there was a problem with one of the showerheads in our condo.

I would recommend the Scottish Thistle and the entire resort to anyone I know who is travelling to Cape Breton, and we would certainly stay again at the Scottish Thistle.

Clean, spacious and luxurious!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed with another couple and we had all the space and amenities required for a few nights. This home is also conveniently located for us to visit all the local attractions and trails. This is one of those rentals where you walk in and automatically start high fiving each other for booking such a great place!

Mostly great!

  • 4 of 5

The home is lovely and functional with 3 bedrooms. The loft with a pull out was very uncomfortable. We did not try the pull out in the living room. It was a hot weekend and if air con not possible, then fans would be a welcome addition. (The ceiling fans helped but didn't crank up very high.). The home is well equipped with everything you could need for cooking or hosting. When the weather is fine, the outside living space is also great. Rhonda and the Inverary folks were great. The unlimited golf for four people makes for great value. We would definitely go back.

Nice Clean Modern Place

  • 5 of 5

We're four guys who were on a golf trip. Lots of room for all of us, couple of showers, three bathrooms, bbq, lots of cooking equipment and things like a keurig.

Easy to get to, the resort knows you're coming when you check in and its easy access back and forth to the trans-canada.

We had a wonderful girls getaway weekend here. Not golfers but we enjoyed the hiking and shops close by and loved the house so much we said said twice "let's just go back to the house". It was warm and welcoming. The check in was easy as was the booking. Perfection! Highly recommend it!

Perfect golf location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed 4 nights and really enjoyed the house. Very clean, comfortable and quiet. Good value which would be even better with 2 couples that golf. Personnel at the Bell Bay golf course were very friendly and helpful.We drove up to the Highlands course one day and really enjoyed that also. Front desk people at Inverrary Resort were not quite sure where the condos were, so make sure you get directions.

Would definitely return here.

The property is situated on the world famous 'Cabot Trail' in the town of Baddeck. Baddeck is considered to be the start and end of the 'Cabot Trail' due to its location on the Trans-Canada Highway. Baddeck is centrally located in the heart of Cape Breton. Some attractions that are in driving range are: The Alexander Graham Bell museum, Fortress of Louisburg, Uisge Ban Falls, Salmon Camp Fishing Lodge in Margaree, Glen Breton Scotch Distillery, Margaree Beaches and the St. Ann's Gaelic College to mention a few. Also Cape Breton is very well known for its culture in Celtic Music, Baddeck is centrally located in a great area to access all venues that are held across the Island and is only approximately a one hour drive to all other Cape Breton golf courses.
