The Bras d'Or Lakes in was clean, the staff friendly and well situated to explore the area. Cape Breton is known for its fiddle and Celtic music. The Inn hosts weekly Ceilidh events. We were fortunate enough to be there for the first one of the season. It was a series of groups/families performing, singing, and dancing local music. It... More

I would highly recommend the Bras D'Or Lakes Inn. We chose this Inn because of reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The Inn and the rooms were very clean (an absolute must for me); the staff was friendly; the owners were lovely and helpful; we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

We had a large group and the Inn was very accommodating. The checkin was quick, and the rooms are rustic with modern touches. Very comfortable bed, great desk, good heating/cooling controls. We ate in the restaurant and the food was excellent. Great service, too. We were staying out of season, but they opened up the bar for us and even... More

This inn is located on the lake.... what a view! You can sit by the lake and relax. The place is rustic and cozy. The beds were confortable. I could see the sunrise from my bed. We were a bit disappointed that we had to pay extra for breakfast which was good and varied. The place could use some renovations.... More

What a lovely surprise to find such a well appointed room in such beautiful spot. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was well worth the added cost - omelettes, crepes, fruit, etc.

We arrived in St Peter's without any idea where to stay. After a quick look round and seeing all three inns in town, we opted to see if the Bras D'Or had any rooms. Fortunately they did, we got a very warm welcome from the staff and a large room on the main room overlooking the lake. The room was... More

We are delighted that you chose to stay with us in St. Peter’s. You are right, we just upgraded all our in-room coffee makers to the K-Cup® technology!
