A peninsula on Canada's southeastern coast, the province of Nova Scotia is known for its rugged natural beauty and well-preserved traditional Scottish culture, especially in the northern highlands around Cape Breton Island. Nova Scotia's largest city, Halifax, is cosmopolitan for its size and is home to cultural attractions such as the Symphony Nova Scotia and the annual Atlantic Film Festival. Although Halifax has several fine boutique hotels, many of the small luxury hotels in Nova Scotia are located in historic small towns and in areas of natural splendor.
Bras D'Or Lakes Inn
Situated on the shores of Bras D'Or Lake in scenic Cape Breton, the Bras D'Or Lakes Inn is a small luxury hotel in the heart of the countryside. The hotel's 20 rooms come with cable television, wireless Internet access and sweeping views of the lake. An outdoor hot tub overlooks the water and an adjacent sundeck has lounge chairs and tables. Bicycles, kayaks and canoes are available free of charge to guests of the Bras D'Or Lakes Inn. An on-site four-star restaurant serves classical French cuisine crafted from local game, fish and produce. During the summer, traditional Celtic music jams, called Ceilidhs, are held in the hotel's lounge.
