Between the Gulf of the Saint Lawrence and the Atlantic Ocean, on the world famous Cabot Trail, Cabot Shores - Adventure Resort is the place to explore Cape Breton's marvels.......

The Resort offers a combination of 4 star accommodations (Chalets and Lodge Rooms), alternative shelters (Yurts, Tipis and Wigwams) and adventure and retreat programs.

Nestled amongst the trees and well spaced for privacy, our chalets accommodate 2 to 8 people. They have a living room, a kitchen and a dining room, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. A porch opens onto sweeping views of the Atlantic. The kitchen is fully equipped (fridge, stove, utensils) and each unit has ceiling fans, electric heat, and a TV and DVD/VCR. Laundry facilities and Barbecues are available on premise.

Our main lodge combines comfortable bedrooms and suites with private bathrooms with warm and welcoming common areas. Enjoy our restaurant's delicious organic menu while attending a concert or evening entertainment in the Main Hall, or simply relax on one of our decks, reading a good book while keeping an eye on the beach and the ocean in case an eagle would decide to show up...

If you feel a bit more adventurous, stay in one of our wigwams or yurts to enjoy fully the beauty of Cape Breton's natural marvels. Wake up at the sound of birds or spot a moose from your yurt's deck...

You can also participate to our adventures on a daily basis, canoeing up the Indian Brook, sailing to the Bird Islands, or fishing with one of our local guides.

There is something to do for everybody at Cabot Shores, so come enjoy a unique stay in Cape Breton #1 Adventure Resort!
