Welcome to The Barra Strait Inn!
Barry & Susan Stubbert-Samways and their entire family would like to welcome you this season to the Barra Strait Inn.
Looking for a special place to nourish the soul and delight the senses? Discover the Barra Strait Inn in beautiful Iona, Cape Breton.
Susan, Barry and their friendly staff will ensure your visit is something to write home about.
Each room in the hotel provides visitors with an absolutely breathtaking view of the
Bras d’Or Lakes. Fall asleep at night listening to the waves roll in on the shore and wake up to a breathtaking sunrise.
From this scenic vista, let us take you back in time when life was simpler. The Inn is the perfect home-base for your Cape Breton Island vacation. A quiet haven centrally located in the Highland Heart of Cape Breton Island.
Only a short distance to some of the most spectacular attractions you’ll find anywhere. Learn a few words of Gaelic right next door at the Highland Village, a living history museum & cultural centre that celebrates the Gaelic experience in Nova Scotia. Sail boat tours and guided tours of Cape Breton with airport pick up and drop off are all available upon request.
From whale-watching, miles of beaches and sailing tours, to hiking, boat rentals and pristine picnic parks, museums and festivals, it’s all within a short drive of your doorstep.
We offer 2 wheelchair accessible rooms (1 double & 1 single bed in each), 28 double rooms and 2 king size units with private bath and lake view. Our dining room features three homecooked meals daily with many traditional dishes passed down from generation to generation. Weekend dining is accompanied by impromptu entertainment. All this at a value you will find no where else on the Island.
