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.
Matt, Kali and master craftsman Nico Stocklin built a wood-fired pizza oven.
It was built from fire brick and local clay, used as mortar. After it was constructed, a chimney was
added and a metal roof to protect it from the fury of the winter weather and sea winds at Cabot Shores.

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.
