My wife and I stayed at Cabot shores with our soon to be 1 year old during march break and had a wonderful time. The owners Paul and Barbara were very friendly and accommodating and made our stay feel like a home away from home. The rooms were spacious and the food in the Gobistro restaurant will have us coming...

While this place was a fun weekend getaway, it has potential to be great. The yurts, located all around the property, are beautifully decorated structures, with handpainted details that make the interiors lovely and bright. With many acres of land and heaps of snow, the snowshoeing was relaxing and you could travel just about anywhere. The evening meal was simple...

We will definately be going back. The whole experience was refreshing. The food was delicious. I have a food allergy and was thankful for how accommodating the staff was. Will be talking about this experience for awhile.

Snow shoeing was a blast and the scenery was spectacular. The Bistro had delicious food and something for everyone. Would highly recommend this resort to anyone and will certainly be...

Rooms were very cold when we got there, hall way and entertainment room (include pool and table tenis table) was with no heat (we cranked up the heat) and main hall/restaurant could...

I booked accommodations here for myself and 7 of my colleagues for a business trip in Cape Breton in February 2017. We stayed for two nights (Wed and Thurs). Accommodations were comfortable, and we felt completely at home. Paul and his wife went above and beyond to ensure we were taken care of. They even went so far as to...

Anyone interested in heading to Cape Breton I absolutely advise you to NEVER stay at CABOT SHORES RESORT!! The place is gorgeous but thats where the excitement ends. The bad far outweighs the good: -we ask to partake in the meditation, owners wife says "no i cant be around you women! You wear too much perfume and I am very...

Cabot shores is a great place to escape the noise of civilization and connect back to nature. I was looking for a camping style cottage-like-resort and was referred to the Yurts. We stayed in the forest yurt with a hot tub on both nights. It was a snow covered wonderland, on the 4th we snowshoed the Red Island Trail just...

I found Cabot Shores after doing a fair bit of research on glamping In Cape Breton and this seemed to exceed all of my thoughts and expectations so I was so eager to arrive after booking. I planned this trip as a celebration for my five year anniversary so I wanted to do something unique, special and exciting. I booked...

“We stayed in the forest yurt, which is a bit farther away from the main lodge and therefore offered a bit more privacy.”

“Cell phones don't have service/wifi in the rooms, which was perfect for us! It truly allows you to connect with nature and not just sit on your phone. There is service and wifi in the lodge, if you need to work! ”
