Why Anne-Marie Mcgowan chose Baddeck
We had been visiting Cape Breton/ Baddeck for a number of years before we had the opportunity to purchase Compass House. We have been working hard to remodel and update it. We hope that you will enjoy our home as much as we do. If there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable please ask!

We love the atmosphere in Baddeck. Compass House really gives you the opportunity to experience life in the village. The locals are so friendly and welcoming and you are a stones throw from everything you need.

Celtic Colours retreat
This was the perfect place to stay for Celtic Colours and exploring the beautiful island! Wonderful house, we’d love to come back :)
Great home to spend a week in.
Good location in the village, comfy furniture and beds, well equipped. We enjoyed our week at Compass House and would go back.
The property is well located, clean, and the owner gave us lots of useful info. She was available and we always received prompt responses to our questions. The wifi was efficient and we really enjoyed our stay!!
Great space; great location
Very clean & lots of space. Sunroom with bed & half bath was super. Location was perfect to walk anywhere in town. A barbeque & microwave would be good additions. I would definitely recommend this house.
This was my first experience with a private rental of any kind. I’m blown away. My grandmother’s family is from Baddeck, so we love the area. Several of my family stayed together for long weekend. We all LOVED this house. It has classic style but is up to date, well laid out, extremely spacious, very comfortable, and 3 bathrooms!!! The owner was responsive to my questions, very proactive and helpful. I almost didn’t want to give a review for fear too many would find out about my amazing find but I want the owner to be successful so I can come back every year. This house has everything you need. I can’t wait to come back next time!
This delightful, spacious, well-appointed house was situated perfectly, right in the centre of Baddeck. Anne Marie was so helpful and gave us lots of information in response to our requests which served us well. She made our stay so much smoother.
We all loved Baddeck and this home from home in particular! Many thanks!!
