The Birches at Ben Eoin Country Inn is located along the Bras d’Or Lakes Scenic Drive in the Cape Breton Island region of Nova Scotia. The Inn overlooks the Bras d’Or Lakes and lies in the shadow of Ben Eoin, which means Jonathan’s Mountain or Hill. Situated on ten acres of land with stunning panoramic views, this 5-star intimate country inn offers luxurious accommodations with 12 unique rooms, a two-storey open design grand foyer and staircase with a fireplace and comfortable seating, and a main dining room open to the public and guests staying at the Inn.

The property is immediately adjacent to The Lakes Golf Course and Ski Ben Eoin, while the picturesque Ben Eoin Yacht Club and Marina is just a short walk away. Take advantage of “Stay and Play” golf and ski specials offered throughout the year. Guests of the Inn are surrounded by nature’s beauty and can enjoy seasonal and leisurely activities such as hiking, biking and snowshoeing safely without leaving the vicinity of the Inn.

The Birches at Ben Eoin Country Inn is the perfect place for weddings and romantic getaways. The unique rural setting within minutes of Sydney lends itself perfectly to corporate retreats and special functions.

The Inn is only 25 minutes from Sydney, 30 minutes from the local airport, 10 minutes from Rita’s Tea Room, and five minutes from a sandy public beach on the Bras d’Or Lakes and a country market.  The Inn is close to all major and historic landmarks and attractions that provide Cape Breton with its rich cultural identity and traditions. Staff at the Inn would be happy to help you plan your sightseeing itinerary.  You won’t want to miss the Alexander Graham Bell Museum, a trip around the Cabot Trail, the Fortress of Louisbourg, the Big Fiddle and much, much more!
