Cabot Shores offers a lovely retreat in the wilds of Cape Breton. The hosts and staff are wonderful and very accommodating. Our lodge room was a bit too cozy for our needs and Paul was able to work us into one of their chalets to give us more elbow room. The chalets are really wonderfully designed small vacation homes. Our chalet, however, didn't get any housekeeping service during our 5 day stay. For the cost, I was expecting the chalet to be serviced daily. (More like a hotel than a housekeeping cabin)
We signed up for a vegetarian meal plan. Barbara prepared wonderful lunches and dinners for us. The dining room in the lodge is very nice and we enjoyed meeting other guests. The breakfast buffet is basic but very adequate.
Dog lovers will enjoy the company of Cosmo, who enjoys a quick pat or a couple of hours of hiking in the woods near by.
Those who are new to the area should note that Cape Breton and the Cabot Trail is very spread out. Cabot Shores is located in a section that is wonderfully isolated and wild.
One more thing. The bugs were hungry but heavy duty bug spray (25% DEET) did the trick.
