Cabot Shores is the first and only 4 season wilderness resort on the Cabot Trail of Cape Breton Island
Located on the Cabot Trail, Cabot Shores was founded in 2004, when Dr. Paul and Barbara created a gathering place including a geobarn lodge and four chalets on 55 acres bordering Indian Brook, Church Pond and the Atlantic. Cabot Shores is the first and only 4 star, 4 season Wilderness Resort which is at once an adventure destination, gathering place for couples and families and groups, and a jump-off point for the Cabot Trail and other iconic spots around Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia.

Peter Findlay’s Review
“Thanks, Dr. Paul. What a treat to have your gorgeous retreat as the base for our filming (of “Mysterious Ruins: Cape Breton:”).
Not only is it a spectacular setting and a home away from home, but it also allowed own team our own little headquarters and clubhouse.
If only every shoot was so much fun! (Peter Findlay: Toronto, Ontario)”

Cabot Shores has the pleasure of introducing guest Chef George Smith to food lovers & culinary adventure seekers alike during their monthly winter and spring feasts.
Chef George Smith and wife Cora-Lee own and operate The Dancing River Sprite in Middle River, NS, where they hold “literary” dinners each month, with lively re-tellings of a chosen classic book and dishes inspired by its passages. At these events, menus are set out for the six-course meal, but rather than describing the dishes, they provide cryptic clues about it’s ingredients. Part of the fun, then, is placing the tastes as you eat. Nearly […]
