Bras d'Or Lakes Inn
Ranked #1 of 3 St. Peter's B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 21, 2013

Was a nice lodge type inn, thought we would have more of a lake view. Beds were very comfortable. We found that the room we had was noisy from the other room doors closing. They were very loud. So for comfort, cleanliness give it a 4.

Thank you for letting us know of your experience with the door(s) near your room. The manager has scheduled for a review of this issue in general as one room was already identified for attention by staff.

The lake view is best from the dining room, deck and dock areas due to the original design and layout considerations for the property. Each room in the Inn has different vantage points to the lake, if any. We are sure to inform our guests of this when a lake view is requested.

Please be assured we are focused on providing very good value with our location, accommodation and dining services and your comments are appreciated.

We stayed July 15-17 2013. This was our third stay at this Inn and I have to report that, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We had two dinners in the restaurant as well as the breakfast buffet, it was excellent. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Would recommend this Inn as the place to stay in the St Peters area. Thanks for the great stay.

Jean-Pierre and Rhoda are great hosts. Maritime hospitality at it's best. Clean, comfortable rooms, attentive and friendly staff. The breakfast buffet is a great deal as well. Close to all there is to see in St. Peter's.

We do hear quite often about how comfortable the rooms are. And nothing like a great breakfast after a good sleep. Pleased to have made you visit to our village on the canal noteworthy for you.

The inn is in a great location and made a refreshing change from chain hotels/motels.
The room had everything we needed and very comfortable beds.

The restaurant is EXCELLENT! We had a delicious evening meal there. It's a classy restaurant without being pretentious and offers good value for money. There was a large party of locals dining there, which is a sure sign of great standards.

The buffet breakfast is really good and they make savoury pancakes and omelettes to order in the buffet area.
If we were doing our road trip again, we'd definitely stay longer at the Bras d'Or Inn.

Always great to meet visitors from across the pond Paula and we are very pleased that you enjoyed our location next to the Bras d'Or Lakes on the Bras d'Or Lakes Scenic Trail. We are pleased that you appreciated the cuisine and venue of both the main dining room and buffet area. May your next road trip, wherever that may be, provide you with similar memories.

Stumbled on this lovely lakeside inn after a long travel day in our rental car. Looked very inviting as we drove into St Peters, and we were well rewarded during our brief stopover. A family run business with all the friendliness one could want. Rooms clean, nicely appointed with very comfy beds. Dining, a Nova Scotia experience with lots of seafood on the menu - Digby scallops & lobster our choices. Breakfast next day reasonably priced and staff very friendly and attentive.
Highly recommend a stopover in this very well turned-out rural Nova Scotia village on the Lake.

We happened upon this restaurant - it was not listed in our guidebooks or GPS. What a shame, as the dinner was excellent. Fresh greens, fruits, seafood prepared just perfectly. I only wish we had known about it in time to stay overnight. Nothing in Port Hawksbury comes close.

My wife Judy and I spent 3 nights in June at the Inn and were very impressed. Our room was nicely decorated and clean and the bed very comfortable. The owners Jean Pierre and Rhoda went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Great buffet breakfast each morning and our dinners each evening simply delicious. Location is great right on the water and close to walk to the town. We would certainly recommend to our friends and not hesitate to return again. Thanks Jean Pierre and Rhoda.
