The Bras d’Or Lakes Inn is a natural meeting place and a great venue for entertainment whether it be a single performer or a group.
We are a strong supporter of local and regional musicians providing a venue for the summer entertainment at least 5 days a week and available Tuesdays and Saturdays as well . We have both the upstairs lounge and the downstairs Session Lounge to provide the ambience and seating required. We are always on the lookout for Maritime musicians who would like to perform regularly at the Inn or book one time performances.
Our Ceilidhs are always fun. Ceilidh is the Gaelic word for a Kitchen party where musicians, storytellers and dancers perform for each other and all the guests. Musicians from the audience are always invited to participate, no matter what their choice of instrument. Come join us for some great Cape Breton music.
We are located on Hwy 104/Route 4, St. Peter’s, Nova Scotia, at the intersection of the Bras d’Or Lakes Scenic Drive and the Fleur-de-Lis Trail and where the ocean meets the inland sea. The Inn is easily accessible from anywhere on Cape Breton Island.
We are a Canada Select four and one half star property catering to the discriminating traveller and business clients looking for comfortable accommodation and great dining in a rural community setting. We host our wedding parties, conferences, business meetings, retreats and the travelling public with the goal to provide good service and a wonderful experience. Our staff will work with you and your guests to make your event successful, reflecting your own uniqueness and our professional delivery.
Our main floor dining room can accommodate 125 guests for either a plated or buffet style breakfast, lunch or dinner. For smaller groups the space can be divided into both meeting and dining areas. The Sessions Lounge in the lower level has a raised stage and also provides space for meetings, entertainment and special functions and seats 90 with a bar licence to accommodate 150. A sound system is available in both the main dining room and Sessions Lounge. Wi-Fi is available onsite.
We have nineteen well-appointed rooms available – three Kings, two Queens and fourteen Doubles (i.e. two double beds per room). Each room has a flat screen TV, cable, microwave, fridge, coffee maker, ironing board, iron and hair dryer.
The menus for each event are developed in consultation with Chef Jean Pierre Gillet, a past member of the Chain-de-Rotisseur and are prepared under his watchful eye. His team can provide an excellent assortment of culinary delights and accompaniments whether for a morning starter, midday break, multicourse meal or buffet.
