Very warm reception and super friendly host. The bed was so soft, and the breakfast was delicious. Suzanne knows how to treat her guests! Would recommend every time! The location is also very convenient for arriving on the island in the evening and striking out in the morning.

This host makes for a great stopover after a late leave from the Cabot Trail enroute to elsewhere. Wonderful hospitality, very comfortable room in a funky old farmhouse. Very enjoyable stay.

Suzanne was a very pleasant host who made us feel very much at home right away. Our bed was comfortable, and (shared) kitchen supplies were plentiful. Yogurt, cereal, farm fresh eggs, fresh baked scones, a selection of teas and coffee, english muffins and plenty of jams were set …

What a fantastic thing Suzanne has going at Glendale farm! Such a beautifully different experience from the typical city-based airbnb. If you want a unique, quiet home-away-from-home feel, stay here! Suzanne is a wonderful host and has thought of everything!

Wonderful host. Communicative but not intrusive. Made fresh scones for breakfast and offered eggs from her own hens for us to cook - a very nice touch! Would recommend this B&B as a good base to explore the area. Thinking it would be nice to come back at some point in the winter …

Very modest accomodation with one bath and few tiny rooms, in an old house with lots of old furniture. Slightly overpriced. Covenient located dwelling for Cabot Trail start or finish point, near the highway.

Response from Suzanne:
Hopefully, the old furniture befits the "130-year-old, 99% original house" as noted in the listing! As for being "slightly overpriced," I hope the following is taken into consideration: I provide a full breakfast spread of an assortment of cereals and breads, jams, peanut butter, honey, coffee, tea, milk, etc. I set them out for guests before they get up. I tell them to check the fridge for juice, milk, yogurt, and eggs. I don’t cook but they are welcome to, and invite them to help themselves to the staples and condiments in the fridge and cupboards. This includes unlimited farm-fresh eggs." I also provide "concierge" services such as researching what the guest wants to do and giving them ideas, phone numbers, and addresses for resources (restaurants, hikes, events, etc) so they can choose their best touring routes. Cape Breton is a huge island and one cannot do it all in a day, so I help them understand what they CAN do in a day. I also welcome pets; I wash dishes for guests who don't do it; I provide a basket of amenities including shampoos, body washes, candies, tissue packs, and souvenir postcards; I hang bed and bath linens on the line to dry instead of using the dryer (so they smell much better!); I allow last-minute bookings and last-minute cancellations. All of these items take time, effort, and cash (and in particular, food and shampoo, etc., are expensive in Cape Breton). All these points are reflected in the price. All this said, I am figuring out a way to add my House Manual to my listing, so that there are no surprises for even the pickiest guest. :)
