My wife and I were delighted to have our son and his friend join us at the Duncreigan Inn on a trip to celebrate his 50th birthday. This is our third visit. We enjoyed the Inn with its wonderful breakfast. This year we found the walking trail just across the highway and delighted in seeing several eagles. We ate at the Red Shoe since we have been big fans of the Rankin Family for years. Mabou and the Duncreigan Inn are special to us.

Firstly; I am from Cape Breton; I have to say that the Duncreigan is a must for
travellers going to this beautiful Island. Its situated in the heart of Mabou and the
view of the river is breathtaking... the service is outstanding ... very private and
peaceful. At night you can relax ... listen to the river... and beyond see the Mabou
church lit up at night. Your stay includes breakfast... and much more... lively conversation; Cape Breton music floats in the background as you plan your day. The
owner Steve is a fountain of knowledge about the Island and what to do... also a
genuine host!!! I have stayed with my husband many times and shall look forward
to my next stay!

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful... I have my favourite!

My wife and I spent three memorable and relaxing evenings in Mabou, NS at the Duncreigan Country Inn. The Inn offered us everything we could have wanted (and needed) during our stay... Very comfortable accommodations (large room actually), a great bathroom with a good shower...always a plus, and, without a doubt, the best breakfast every morning. And ample off-street parking, too.

If and when we return, we will only inquire for accommodations at the Duncreigan!

My husband and I did the Celtic Shores trail via ATV this weekend. We were lucky enough to get a room last minute at this very quaint Inn along the river. We were very pleased when we pulled in to see plum and pear trees full of fruit. We received a kind welcome from a lady who showed us around the property. She even took us to the kitchen so we knew where to get coffee and wine glasses. After we checked in we sat on the deck over looking the river for a glass of wine. The Inn is decorated very nicely with many Antiques. It has a very warm feeling. There are two separate buildings. We had a room (#3) in the main building. I must say, the room was extremely clean. We turned in early after a lovely meal at the Red Shoe Pub. It was very quiet and we didn't hear a sound all night. The breakfast was probably one of the best I have had. My husband enjoyed the scrambled eggs (cooked to perfection) with bacon and sausage. There were lots of healthy options such as fresh fruit, granola and yogurt, along some yummy baked goods. I highly recommend this sweet little inn. We will be back soon! Next time we will take in a square dance!

We stayed here one night on our way north on Cape Breton Island. I chose to stop in Mabou so that we could visit the Red Shoe Pub (great food and music!), and it was also a nice driving distance from Halifax. The property is just a 10 minute walk from town. It's right off the road, but feels very private and secluded with lots of trees and flowers. Our room (#5) was spacious and very nice, with a deck, wood stove and fridge. I can't really comment on the 'service' or proprietors as we didn't have any contact with them except for a quick check-in (although this wasn't an issue for us). Breakfast was nice with some homemade items. We would definitely recommend staying here.
