  • “What a gem! Thank you so much for welcoming us into your wonderful home.  We will definitely return, if you’ll have a couple of aging bikers back!  *****+ for hospitality” Maureen & Gordon, Economy, NS
  • “Thank you for the hospitality. You have a beautiful home & location, and it is very generous of you to offer it to travelers to enjoy.  The food & conversation was excellent; we felt like we were at home.  Many thanks; we will surely recommend you to others!”  Joanne & Duncan, Toronto, ON
  • “After a rainy and misty day on the Cabot Trail, we were greeted with warm hospitality in a beautiful home.  The breakfast was delicious, the bed a real treat!” Joachim & Thelma, Germany
  • “We have experienced Canadian hospitality many times.  Now we have been charmed afresh by this delightful place, superb breakfasts, good company and great humor.  We will take away many happy memories” Jo & Fred, England
  • “We loved our visit here.  It seemed more like staying with friends or close relatives than a bed & breakfast.  The food & conversation and setting were all wonderful”  LuAnn & George, Joplin, MO. Their first visit comments; they have since returned four times.
  • “If ever there was a 5 star B&B, this is it!  What a gorgeous setting-we loved sitting on your bench overlooking the lake…it was lovely.  Our suite (really a gorgeous apartment) was immaculate, tastefully decorated and totally private.  But, most of all, Shirley & Bill, we enjoyed your tremendous hospitality and will always cherish our time here and with the Brydens!” Judy & Jack, Albany, NY
  • “We want to thank you for the great hospitality you showed us.  We loved every minute of it.  We felt like we were treated like royalty.  Thank you, too, Shirley, for all the trouble you went to because of my food allergies.  Accommodations were definitely out of this world.” Wayne & Sharon, Calgary, AB
  • Thank you so much for your hospitality & friendship.  We enjoyed every minute of our stay and you welcomed us into your beautiful home with such caring.  We especially like the magnificent breakfasts-and the maple yogurt.  The information and hiking book was very valuable and allowed us to focus our attention while enjoying this beautiful island.  If you’re ever in Winnipeg, please look us up.  Marshall & Jennifer, Winnipeg, Man.
  • “You have a wonderful home.  We are very happy to have found you.  The view and especially the company were all fabulous!  Absolutely five stars!!  We look forward to coming back one day.”  Scott & Diane, Pasadena , MD
  • “Your B&B is absolutely outstanding…a beautiful resort in a class of it own.  The hospitality you have shown is above and beyond anything we expected.  Why you are only rated a 4 ½ stars is beyond us!  Thank you so much for a wonderful stay-we’ll certainly look forward to our next stay at your B&B” Linda & Rick, Fredericton,NB
  • With good luck we found your beautiful paradise!  Thank you very much for being your guest.  Wonderful cookies, delicious breakfasts.  We will recommend your B&B to all our friends.”  Bertrand & Pia, Berlin, Germany
  • “Of all the places we’ve been and experienced Canadian friendliness & hospitality, you top the list.  We could very comfortably spend a week or two with you in your beautiful home and enjoy every minute.  Thank you for being such wonderful people and thank you, Shirley, for your gourmet breakfasts!  We are sorry to leave!” Nancy & Larry, Columbus, OH
  • “Thank-you for sharing your gorgeous home with us.  Your breakfasts were superb! We enjoyed strolling through the gardens and down the lane.  Wish we could stay longer.  Thank you also for your suggestions re thing to see and do in beautiful Cape Breton!  This B&B is “to die for.”  #1 on our list.  Betty & Keith,  Mariposa, CA

  • It’s hard to say goodbye after spending five wonderful days here, one more than we planned.  We would have been quite happy spending all of our vacation here, enjoying your beautiful home, the chats, laughs and the delightful company.  As we mentioned to you both…..IT DOESN’T GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS!  Thanks for some wonderful memories.”  Harold & Sheila,  Cleveland, OH
  • “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home.  You made us feel so welcome & your hospitality was amazing!  We wish you nothing but the best; health & happiness.  You are awesome people.  Keep in touch.  Look after those foxes, Bill.  Helen & Angus, Amherstburg, ON
