Bras D’Or Lake has been called both a lake and ‘Canada’s inland sea’ but it is really an estuary where fresh water meets salt water creating a unique Biosphere surrounded by rocky shorelines and deep forested hills. Our Lake Front area offers wonderful photo opportunities, great reading spots, and picnic views galore! Our shore front is a sheltered cove where you can fish from the shoreline (no license necessary) or take a refreshing dip (swim shoes recommended). Adventurous guests are also welcome to use their own kayak or canoe at the lakes edge. There is an access boat ramp in downtown Baddeck for ease of launch if needed.
