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...

We stayed here only one night while touring Nova Scotia. Our room was clean, quiet and very comfortable. Both our dinner and breakfast in the dining room delicious. Would have liked to stay longer but our travel plans did not allow time for this, unfortunately.

We were impressed with the facilities and the close attention to our needs by the owners and staff. Jean Pierre, owner and chef, operates a gourmet dining room. The Inn's location, close to the canal and within walking distance to the village of St. Peter's is also convenient. The best accomodations and restaurant within miles. Ted F.

My overnight stay was off-season and my experience might not be be the same as someone who stays in the summer. The staff was very helpful, the bed was comfortable and the room pleasant. And the meals were special-delicious. I am recommending the Bras d'Or Lakes Inn!

My husband and I stayed at this inn in early October on a month's tour of Nova Scotia. We had booked online, and upon arrival we were given room #24. The room was well appointed with comfortable beds and the usual amenities, clean with a full bathroom. We went out in the evening and then watched some TV. However, once...

Thank you for taking the time to report this event. It is true that room 24 does have a humming sound from the freezers. Although it doesn't bother most people it can keep others awake. This room has a nice view of the canal. During winter we are working on having this situation fixed. I was happy to hear that...
