Bay Wind Suites
Ranked #3 of 7 Cheticamp B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 November 2016

My husband and I decided to head to Cape Breton for our honey moon as his family lives there. Unfortunately, it was late October, so while our stay in Cheticamp was nice, nothing was open, including the restaurant attached to the suite. We ended up eating Co-op chicken and watching described video tv since we couldn't figure out the remote. The suite itself was beautiful and cozy and had a great view- but we were the only people in the whole building, which was a little creepy. I would stay there again but I would definitely make sure it was not on the off season. We also ended up in the wrong suite, but it saved us money and it was a cold rainy evening so we didn't mind at all!
Overall- very pretty and sweet place to stay, just check that you're there during tourist season!

We enjoyed being on the water although it was a bit pricey. We were charged $214 although their website shows less expensive rates. The bed was only full size and not the most comfortable. It was raining and we had a leak in our bathroom ceiling. Called front desk. All that was done was put the trashcan under the leak and no discount was even offered on the room.

Arrived at 3:30 pm, all locked up, phone number on door. Fortunately someone saw us at the door. It was made clear to us that it was the end of the season, effectively closed, no restaurant, no-one on the premises except us. We were given the keys, explained where to find the room. Climbed the steep exterior stairs to the room. A wonderful view bout found that the room had not been touched since the previous occupants. Managed to catch the helpful lady and then the management arrived and told us to return in one hour.
Getting ready for bed we found that the bed linen had not been changed. The bed linen was crumpled and it either had not been taken off or the launder sheets were extremely badly cleaned. We slept on top of the bed. Fortunately the towels appeared to be clean and fresh.
A very uncomfortable night. Couldn't wait to leave.

We request the Bayview Suite..upstairs with a view of Cheticamp Island. The decor is simple and plain but very clean. The decor is a bit dated but it is close to the Trail and a nice restaurant downstairs.

We stayed in the lighthouse suite with accessibility to the boardwalk. We were very happy with the two room suite. It was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Our bathroom shower was dripping however it really wasn't too big of an issue. We ate in the restaurant upstairs for supper and it was excellent with amazing views. Bay wind suites is an excellent location in Cheticamp and very close to the national park. We were very happy with out stay and would recommend bay wind suites.
