This is an amazing place to stay!! Myself and my now, husband stayed the weekend of March 21-23 and got married on the property!! The owners and staff went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. The location is great and only a short drive from Sydney, and the property is beautiful. We stayed in the... More

This is a perfect place to visit if you want to find some peace and serenity. As you enter to lodge to register you can almost feel yourself breathing more slowly and you can notice that your shoulders are starting to move away from your ears. The owners of the resort offered a warm welcome and we knew that this... More

Cabot Shores Resort is a wonderful place to stay, not only in summer! It is kind of a winter wonderland. You can do a lot in the winter if you like to be outside and explore while wearing snowshoes. We arrived there in the middle of winter. The snow was way higher than we expected it for Cape Breton and... More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a romantic retreat to Cabot Shores this past week. From the minute we arrived, we felt extremely welcome and enjoyed exploring the beautiful property on snowshoes. We enjoyed a delicious supper, a relaxing evening in the cedar hot tub, and a peaceful night enjoying the warmth of the cozy yurt. We will undoubtably be back!

My boyfriend and I (both from Sydney) really loved Cabot Shores! It was really cozy, lots of activities, it felt like home! Barbara was an amazing hostess. The property was beautiful. We stayed in a yurt with the only heat source being a wood stove. It was really cozy, but let the fire go out while sleeping, so it got... More

We loved our stay at Cabot Shores inside the cedar yurt. The snowshoe adventure through the beautiful trails and then relaxing by the fire was exactly what we needed. The lodge offered a warm, friendly atmostphere where we had a lovely supper that evening, followed by a dip in the solar heated hot tub beneath the stars. I would definately... More

It was nice to be tucked away from the world for a weekend. I enjoyed the cabin very much, but my favourite part was definitely the lodge itself, with the fireplace and the atmosphere. I also tried snowshoeing for the first time, which is way easier than I had first anticipated.

I really enjoyed my stay at Cabot Shores - in a tent camping, and in two different yurts. It was wonderful to get up in such a beautiful place and then go and have a healthy breakfast followed by some gentle exercise and meditation. The area is wonderful to explore for those who love nature and the arts. Paul and... More

Highlight of my summer! I spent many peace filled hours at a river side campsite simply watching the water and the warblers feeding. Free half hour meditation and yoga offered by host Barbara got my days off to an uplifting start. Heritage chickens and the vegetable garden are well cared for, as are all the guests. Loved the variety of... More
