The Yurt & Tipi At Cabot Shores: record number of inquiries

This season, record number of inquiries are coming from our websites and over the phone concerning our Yurt and Tipi.  A few folks even contacted us during winter, but for now they are closed till mid-May (you can see the winter frame of the Tipi on the right of this page)

Boat Tours and Adventures

Incredible coastal vistas provide the backdrop to the abundant sea life found in the north Atlantic, featuring
whales, seals and many seabirds and fish. You never know what may come up ‘out of the blue’!  Dolphins, tuna, halibut, the ebb and flow of thousands of mackerel coming with the tides…

Here we offer Whale Watch Excursions (zodiac and big boat), puffin tours; lobster adventures, deep sea fishing; and the more portable tours with Yolo Boards (Stand Up Paddling), canoes and even sea kayaks…

Building a Wood-fired Pizza Oven

Atlanta Guest Sees Cape Breton Moose

Tom and his wife Judith are from Atlanta, Georgia and they’d never seen a moose before.
The first night, upon arrival, they were standing on the deck of Whiff’s lodge, facing the
ocean and hearing that they might see an eagle or moose, from the Lodge or from their chalet.
Just then an eagle flew overhead and it made Dr. Paul look like a prophet…
The next morning, Tom, an artist and writer, came into the lodge for breakfast and had an
even better story to tell…
You’ll see it in this short video.
