The Grand Narrows Hotel
Standing prominently on the eastern shores of the Barra Strait on the Bras d'Or Lakes, this grand three storey structure (Second Empire) was built as an elegant fifteen bedroom hotel in 1887. With large gathering rooms, two full length verandas, spacious bedrooms, and a grand winding staircase. It features the privacy and space of a hotel with the added touch of a friendly rural B&B. Our location on a large beachfront property ensures that guests can enjoy swimming in the clean, crystal clear waters of Bras d'Or, the largest and most beautiful saltwater lake in the world. Stroll down a quiet country road that hugs the shoreline where two natural marshes provide shelter to an abundance of birds and other wildlife. Watch the eagles soar overhead, and enjoy still summer evenings on the front veranda with breathtaking sunsets over the hills of Iona. The Barra Strait Marina and Wheelhouse Café are only a few steps away, which adds to the charm of Grand Narrows. The Grand Narrows Hotel B&B is conveniently located smack dab in the centre of Cape Breton Island, making it the ideal base for travelling to many of the Island's destinations, such as the Highland Village Museum, The Cabot Trail, Fortress of Louisbourg, numerous golf courses, and more.
Experience the lifestyle of the Scots in Nova Scotia at the Village's Outdoor Pioneer Museum or look up your Cape Breton roots at the Genealogy and Family History Centre. The Highland Village is situated on a beautiful site overlooking the Bras d'Or Lakes and is open from May to mid October.
