make sure you stay on the 2nd floor! there is no insulation or sound proofing between the floors, which creates a beautiful raw look of exposed beams, BUT you can hear every freaking footstep of the people above you. and the elderly couple each got up 3 times during the night, so we got zero sleep

Every unit had a balcony or sitting area that looked over the lake, which was breath taking. Unfortunately, the sheets were a little on the rough side, causing an abrasion on my elbow when I slept. Please use fabric softener <3

My friend and I stayed here for one night. It was her first time visiting Cape Breton and I am very pleased to have chosen the Inn for our stay. Rooms are clean and equipped with everything that is needed. We enjoyed a night out at their on site pub. Band was awesome, food was great and we shared a few laughs with an amazing bar staff, thank you for a fun time. The most beautiful view from the balcony the next morning while enjoying a mimosa. I grew up less than an hour from Iona which is one of my favorite spots on the Island and this little town never disappoints. I cannot wait to return for another visit and I will definately be staying at Iona Heights Inn. Another piece of Heaven located on our beautiful land
