History

Welcome To Gisele’s Inn Baddeck…. where European charm, and warm Cape Breton hospitality create a unique experience!

In 1976 Hans and his wife Helen Sievers became owner/operators of the 23 room Gisele Hotel when they purchased this stunning 4 acre property from Hans’ mother who had operated this original MacNeil family home as a Bed and Breakfast for many years.  The original home has been added to, and renovated, and is one of 3 original homes built by well-known local contractor Neil MacNeil in the 1800’s.  Silver Dart Lodge, and Inverary Inn also feature homes built in the 1800’s by the MacNeil family.

Auberge Gisele’s Inn has seen several expansions and renovations.  From its beginnings as a tourist lodge, Hans and Helen Sievers have added many new buildings creating a total of 78 well appointed and comfortable guest rooms.  The Sievers family has always been dedicated to providing quality accommodations in Baddeck.

Our 4star dining room opened in 1976 with 52 seats. As demand for a fine dining experience grew, so did our dining room.  Mr. and Mrs. Sievers expanded it over the years to develop it into the 130 seat dining experience we offer today.  We have received many awards and accolades for our fine food and we continue to strive to provide our guests with delightful meals with a French flare. Some of the finest cuisine on Cape Breton Island can be found right here.

Mr. and Mrs. Sievers, and all of the staff here at Gisele’s wish you a warm and wonderful stay, and all the best on your Cape Breton adventure!
