dot Inn at Glendyer
Esther and Alan provide their guests with a warm welcome in their beautiful and impeccable historique home filled with beautiful antiques and furnishings. Each morning they cuisine excellent breakfast with such attention to details such as homemade jams, muffins and choice of breads and egg dishes (fresh from their hens). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a comfortable room with en-suite and charming little sitting room.

We were very fortunate to have had the opportunity to stay here. Our room was fantastiic, the breakfast divine and our hosts-amazing! Mabou is a quaint little town but don't let that fool you, there is lots happening especially on a Monday night! Thanks for being a part of our first time trip to the east! We hope to be back.

This was truly and beautiful country experience. The place was very comfortable and having everyone sit down for breakfast together in the morning was fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The Inn at Glendyer is in a tranquil setting close to the town of Mabou and the Cabot Trail. Alan and Esther are wonderful, helpful hosts and their home is beautiful. Our ensuite room was very comfortable and the breakfast was outstanding.

Our first impression as we drove up was this was the very definition of quaint, and we were not wrong. Absolutely amazing, a gem! Lovely home, wonderful hostess and beautiful area. What more can I say, we will be back next time we're in Cape Breton. The "home" (this isn't just an inn, we felt completely at home here) was filled with wonderful antiques and beautiful decorations, it was clean and well kept. Thank you so much for the early morning tea :) Out of all the hotels/b&b's we stayed at this week, this was the favorite by far. Great value, comfy bed and oooooh the tub!

My mom and I just returned home from a wonderful visit to the Mabou area, and the most enjoyable part was our stay at The Inn at Glendyer! It is an amazing combination of old and new together, and the decorating and cleanliness are second to none!....not to mention the lovely breakfast buffet...yum! It may be a wee bit from the main road, but the quiet and serenity are worth that extra mile!This is a Four Star Inn for sure!!

We stayed here for just one night and would have stayed longer if time permitted. We had room 2 which was beautiful and our friends had room 3 which was also nice. The breakfast was great! The house was so cute and in such a nice quiet location. Would love to stay there again.

My wife and I just spent a glorious time at the Inn at Glendyer. We have to feel a little sorry for anyone who spent the night elsewhere. If you want to get away from it all, yet be not too far away, this is the place. Located a mile along a well-maintained dirt road, this Inn at first glance took us back to a time when life was simpler. Yet when we were in our room, so beautifully appointed with the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in, digital TV, wifi, and an air jet bathtub, we realized we were not roughing it all.

Jill is a most pleasant and gracious host, and the hearty breakfast was delicious. We will be back.

The Inn at Glenndyer offers a perfect beginning spot to explore Cape Breton from the western side at Mabou. The Inn is colorful, older, clean and the rooms attractive and spacious. Jill, the innkeeper, is gracious and helpful with trip information. At the inn you are near the ceilidh's in Mabou. For meditation, there is a labyrinth in the backyard.

Our only disappointment was that we couldn't book two nights due to prior reservations. This is what all B&B's should be measured against. Updated country living at it's best. We hope to be back again. Jill, you were wonderful and thank you for the flowers.

- Travis & Jo, from Houston. TX 26 September 2009

Our two-night stay at the Inn was wonderfully relaxing and very enjoyable. Our room with ensuite bathroom was rustic but exceptionally clean. Jill has done a spectacular job with the place.

Jill, you should probably post pictures of the hot tub... what a spot that is! With the serene sound of the river flowing by your place could be called "Haven at Glendyer" instead of "Inn at Glendyer". Thanks for making our stay so wonderful.

Simply WONDERFUL! A beautiful Inn. My mother and I stayed for three nights in June. The hostess is very nice and extremely knowledgable about the area and helpful. The rooms are nicely decorated and extremely comfortable. The full breakfast is another great treat. One of the best B & B's I've stayed, I am looking forward to returning.
