Laurel's Bed and Breakfast

4596 Hwy 252



Laurel’s Bed and Breakfast is just minutes from the heart of Mabou village, near the Sunset Coast of Cape Breton.

Laurel’s Bed and Breakfast is a beautifully restored 1880s home, set far back from the road (rte. 252). Every morning, guests enjoy a full breakfast of local and organic foods. In the warm weather months, enjoy a beverage in comfort on the wrap-around deck, or take your chair up into the field and marvel at the glorious view. In the colder weather, take advantage of the surrounding fields and forest for snow-shoe and ski activities. Later, come warm up by the fire.

There are two large bedrooms, each with a Queen bed. One of the rooms has a private bath, the other, an ensuite bath. Each room is bright and welcoming, and both have beautiful views of the surrounding fields and hills. Laurel’s is an LGTB-welcoming B&B.

What to do?

Fine food and great music abound in all seasons. The famous Red Shoe Pub, the Glenora Distillery, and the Mull family restaurant are just around the corner. You can hear music, or dance the night away at any one of several local Cape Breton dances. Visit our local Farmer’s Market in the Mabou Arena on Sundays 11-2, June-mid October, visit the many artist and artisan galleries/shops found in villages all along the Ceilidh Trail. Take a drive to the Cabot Trail, about an hour away from Laurel’s Bed and Breakfast. Nearby are several family farms and the Mull and Mabou rivers. The glorious beach at West Mabou Provincial Park, and the Celtic Shores Coastal Trail are a few minutes away. If golf is your game, find your way up the Ceilidh Trail to our world-famous golf course, Cabot Links in Inverness. In winter, x-country skiing and snowshoe trails are just outside the house, or very close by.
