This is our second time at this Inn. The staff is personality plus, the rooms are very clean, the view of the lake is great and to top it all the food is more than delicious. Last year we dropped in on Thursday night to be entertained with very pleasant keltic music. This year we landed on a wednesday night...

We arrived without a reservation, but thankfully that was not an issue. We didn't get a king room which would probably had a nicer view, but the room was very clean, with a very comfortable bed, and spacious enough. The meal in the dining room was excellent. Lovely setting, carefully and freshly prepared entrées, and a good wine list. Even...

Well, we stumbled on a well-kept secret in St. Peter's, (Cape Breton) Nova Scotia called the Bras d'Or Lakes Inn. If you like the outdoors and log-cabin style, this is the place for you. It's quaint, rustic and overlooks the Bras d'Or Lakes. We especially liked the 'bedrock-style' chairs that were in both the dining room and the bedrooms. They...

What a great location for an inn! Bras D'Or Lakes Inn is located right off the highway in St. Peter's, so it's easy to find and leave from for daytripping on the Cabot trail.

It's worth taking Route 104 to route 4 to St.Peter's as your route to the NFLD Ferry or Sydney or Louisburg just to stay at this Inn in St.Peter's or to visit Rita's Tea Room along the way . First, that route is really far more picturesque than the 105 through Baddeck , and St.Peter's is a good stopping point...

One of the interesting points about traveling in Nova Scotia was that some places were known about hours away. Someone in Pictou told us about the new chef at the Bras d'Or, and we came in for dinner. Somewhere I read that cooking starts with quality ingredients, and certainly that was true here - the seasoning seemed to highlight the...
