  The Telegraph House
by easterntrekker

This is a convenient place to stay in Baddeck . It's right in the center of town and is an quaint old inn....quite historic really .The Telegraph House, built in 1861 ,once contained the office of the first Trans-Oceanic Cable Company, some of the first telegraph messages in North America were sent from the office in the "Telegraph House".

The rooms in the main lodge are done in a Victorian Style . There's an add on motel section...not as nice.

Unique Qualities: During the summer months there is live music in the dining room.
