dot The Gathering House B & B
Loved staying with Jean and Ken - they were great hosts - the house is in a great location, and easily accessible to wandering around Nova Scotia. Hope we get to return one day soon ! xo

After a horrible flight from Tokyo, Japan Gene met me at 3am and had my bed already for me. It was hospitality of the finest kind. The next morning she prepared "eggs in a hole" toast with a poached egg in the center. It was just as my grandfather used to make. Day two was a tower of fruit on top a waffle. The price of the room would have been enough for the food alone, but I had a comfortable bed and hot shower on top of fabulous breakfasts and good conversations. The Gathering Place is a must for anyone going to Cape Breton. They will not be disappointed!

we stayed with Jean and Ken in september 2009 and were overwhelmed with their friendship.The moment we walked in to their wonderful house we were made to feel very welcome They gave my wife and I some valuable information when we told them that we wanted to travel along The Cabot Trail,we had the names of b&bs along the trail and they proved to be wonderful places to stay,almost as good as The Gathering House.Thank you once again Jean & Ken.

My stay at the Gathering HOuse was an unforgettabe experience it opened for me a new way to travel never having used a B&B before I was somewhat reluctant to seek accomodations anywhere but an Hotel or Motel. I seemed so welcome in the Gathering House the breakfast was delicious and more than ample. The Hostess and Host were friendly and accomodating. I will definatley seek out the Gathering House when I next visit Cape Breton.

Glad to see you are still in business. I spent 2 lovely nights in your home ... about 7 years ago. Time Flies!

Obviously you continue to be wonderful hosts.

We enjoyed the setting, the home, and the company! Jean and Ken were very kind and the breakfasts were wonderful. They were extremely helpful in helping us get around the area, which we really appreciated!!
