The Grand Narrows Hotel is conveniently located in central Cape Breton making it the ideal home-base for traveling to many of the Island's destinations Standing prominently on the eastern shores of the Barra Strait on the Bras d'Or Lakes, the Hotel is intrinsically tied to the rich history and culture of the area and is an enduring testament to the era in which it rose. Local scottish dances, Gaelic learning, and Scottish museum are only a stones throw away. Highland Village Museum, and Feis an Eilien are only a 5 min drive.
We are located on the Bras d'Or lakes, nestled between the lake and a backyard pond. The b&b
