Loved everything about the place - especially location. Feels like a slice of Switzerland but with its own charm. Great host and ample space for a family of three. Easy to get on to the highway and a short distance from the nearby town.
We arrived on a cold fall day and were so pleased to find a nice warm cabin all ready for us. The property is very well maintained and our cabin was spotlessly clean. Being there on a very rainy day was great - we were able to bring in some groceries for lunch and enjoy a quiet afternoon watching some TV. If you want to eat out, it is about a 15 minute drive to town. Our host was most friendly and quite helpful in pointing us in the right direction for dinner. Be prepared for European style beds - two mattresses for a King bed and separate duvets for each mattress but very warm and comfortable.
Four of us (2 couples) rented a 2 bedroom cottage. It was very clean, comfortable and well laid out. They appear older, but well maintained, with decks and barbeques. The owner, Roland, is very affable and actually takes the time at check in to go out to the cottage and show you how everything works, very seldom does one see this now. (he also had an offroad Segway that I wouldn't have minded taking for a spin!). There are lots of trails on the property and a great view off the mountain!
We stayed 3 nights in the chalet on our golf vacation. Roland made this the highlight of our trip, as he was very professional, courteous, and provided every need in timely fashion. It is very obvious he takes great pride in his resort and rightly so. The accommodation is definitely 5- star, very clean and new.I travel extensively and this is a beautiful destination. Only hope I can return to show off this place to more of my Ontario friends. Thank you once again Roland.
We booked this accommodation because we did not find anything else available for the nights we were going to be in Baddeck. Sounded good on the website...good location. BUT, shame on the owners for "milking the cow": rundown, dirty! Clients seemed mostly families or several couples staying a week or more. In that case, this is cheap for the money. I would NOT have cooked and eaten there! The shower/tub was very dirty! It was cheap in every sense. It felt like there had been no deep cleaning in a long, long time! Never again! Sorry, Rolando. We expected much better from a German/Italian!

Thank you for your review. I have to admit that in the 22 years of the existence of Hunter's Mountain Chalets, did we not have such a devastating review. Therefore I do not really know how to react to these accusations, other than to say, we apologize for having failed your, obviously, very high expectations. To call our place dirty and cheap is simply untrue. We work hard at maintaining our rental units, as well as our reputation as being one the cleanest places in the Baddeck area, as proven by our other 112 reviews on TripAdvisor and many more on other online portals.
