Comments from Guests
“I would travel back every season if I could. The wide variety of what Cabot Shores offers is what helps to form its great character. No matter what season you visit in, adventure awaits.”~ Erin Davis
“I had the pleasure of being at Cabot Shores for their annual New Year’s Levee. What a wonderful occasion for the local community and for guests alike! Cabot Shores opened its doors to visitors for a day of delicious food and great company. I met a variety of interesting people. The food was delicious and plentiful. At the end of the day, another guest and I participated in the first annual polar bear swim! I can’t tell you how exhilarating it was to jump into Indian Brook at the dead of winter! I’ve never felt more alive!”~Gayle
Every once in a while, you meet pioneers who make a big difference around Cape Breton.
Jacques and Micheline started a bike club called Velo Cape Breton which helps cyclists here and from around the world explore Cape Breton, have fun and promote good health all in one full swoop.
Recently, we attended the Velo Cape Breton Annual Awards dinner to show our support and to our surprise, Cabot Shores was chosen for the “Bicycle Friendly Award” for supporting cyclists and their bikes cycling the Cabot Trail.
Cabot Shores even had a chance to present their own “Adventurers Award” to Jacques and Micheline.
What impresses us about Jacques and Micheline is their enthusiasm for active living and spirit of adventure- during all 4 seasons! Last Valentine’s Weekend, they braved a snowstorm to visit our Bistro & Lodge, and the next morning carried on snowshoeing with me and Cosmo up the Wilderness Trail to Indian Brook Great Falls.
They’re both retired but I think a better description is “re-fired” since
besides Velo Cape Breton they’ve developed trails for Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing (often by the full moon). Sound good?
It’s the kind of winter adventures offered on Cape Breton, beside
ample musical kitchen parties and getaways…
So they are the kind of 4 season adventurers we love to host at
