About
Under NEW Ownership in 2013 we are settled on the shore of the Bras d'Or Lake, this family run Motel sits on top of a beautiful hill overlooking the lake. We have a private beach and docking facility, and a heated in-ground pool. Our Cabot Restaurant is open daily for Breakfast and Dinner, with most seats providing amazing views of the lake. We are 5 minutes drive from the Village of Baddeck, and the Alexander Graham Bell Museum. A wonderful stop for two nights when traveling around the world famous Cabot Trail. We are a small, comfortable, CLEAN, family motel that specialize in making our guests feel at home. We are " A refreshing stop along the way..."

The place is easy to find and convenient to the Cabot trail. They have a nice simple restaurant on site. Nice view of Lake D'Or. Reasonably priced for the area, friendly staff, clean somewhat dated rooms

We stayed in one of the 'chalets' as the rooms were all booked. The chalet was very tiny and dated. The mattress was horrible, but we did enjoy a dip in the lake and the pool. It was not worth what we were charged.
