Having visited many Inns, Motels and Cottages in Cape Breton I have to say The Tulloch Inn is my favourite spot. The Inn is quite isolated and thus very quiet and peaceful. Your hosts Keith and Elizabeth will do anything to make your stay more comfortable. The rooms are bright, spacious, very clean and well maintained and fully equipped with wifi, a/c, TV, DVD, and very comfortable top quality beds and bedding. Your room rate includes a full cooked breakfast served in a charming dining room. With advance notice, Elizabeth will personally prepare dinner for her guests - her culinary skills are superb and if you are lucky enough to enjoy dinner here you will not be disappointed. Otherwise you will have a 20 minute drive to the nearest half decent restaurant. If you are planning an overnight visit or longer in the Inverness area, The Tulloch Inn May not be the closest spot but for value and quality it is highly recommended and well worth the 20 minute drive.

Tulloch Inn is located aout ten miles outside Inverness on the west side of Lake Ainslie. The mailing address is Scotsville, but Tulloch Inn is not on Scotsville's eastern side of the lake. As you're proceding south on West Lake Ainslie Road, look for the white Tulloch Inn sign at 2795, on the left side of the road. The drive into Tulloch Inn is about 1/4 of a mile along a one-lane dirt driveway. Tulloch Inn is in a quiet, rural setting. It has six guestrooms; we stayed in the McFarland Room. The room was clean and comfortable, but dated. The bed was comfortable, though the pillows were unusually flat, too flat to be comfortable. Also needed are a clock, clear instructions for using the TV, and an accurate TV channel listing. Morning noise in the hall will be heard, as all six guest rooms are on the second floor. Note: no elevator available. When you check in, you'll be asked to choose a time for breakfast. The breakfast menu is pre-set, choices are limited, but the prepared food was very good. For dinner, it's an easy drive in to Inverness, where we'd recommend Route 19 Brewing (see separate review). For fine dining, there's Panorama or the Cabot Bar. For ultra-fine dining, make a reservation at Glenora Distillery, about three miles south of Inverness. Bottom line, hospitable hosts Keith and Elizabeth provide a comfortable place to overnight at Tulloch Inn. Recommended!

Well, it is nice to be away from low lying seaside areas when a hurricane hits. It was an unsettling 24 hours. The power was out, and the wind and rain was ferocious. The inn was designed to withstand 200 mph winds, so it turned out to be a pretty safe place to be. It's really a scenic location with great lake views, which we enjoyed in the daylight even though the lake was pretty churned up. The inn is away from town, and away from the highway, so plan to be self-sufficient (even in good weather) and enjoy the fine meals that Elizabeth and Keith prepare. I am sure it is very quiet when there are is not a big storm underway. The rooms (4) are super-clean, scent free, and well furnished. There is a common living room and a dining room downstairs that are enjoyable shared spaces. The balconies are nice with great views, although we did not have the opportunity to enjoy during our time. Elizabeth and Keith were super hospitable and had answers to all questions, and were calm during the storm. They went above and beyond in fixing delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner on their camping stoves, since there was no power (and all 4 rooms were occupied). Great place to ride out a storm, but I bet it would be even more enjoyable during milder conditions. Thanks Elizabeth and Keith!

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms facing lake have the best views, but there is not a bad room in the place

We arrived at the Inn the night before the hurricane hit. Keith and Elizabeth were lovely and gracious hosts. The Inn lost power on the next afternoon and did not regain it before we left 4 days later. Even with all of that we made the best of it. Elizabeth cooked meals over a camp stove and was still able to provide wonderful things. The view from our window was beautiful overlooking Lake Ainslie. We will definitely return, hopefully the weather will cooperate this time.

If getting off the main trail is your thing this is a great spot. Very clean and beautiful spot. Nice view of the lake but sadly no access. The owners are so pleasant and fun and they can cook! Breakfast is included but i regret not getting the supper which you can reserve when you book because it smelled amazing.
