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.
“Caz” was doing the Cabot Trail with a media crew, saw the sign for the
Cabot Shores Bistro and stopped in.
They sat on the deck and lunched on seafood chowder and home made
rolls…talked of adventures, food, hiking and Glooscap stories of the
Bird Islands, and the good fortune of getting a good cup of coffee with a homemade brownie along the Cabot Trail.

plank salmon cooked here over a fire by chef Carl Nemeth.

***TV Interview ***
Gonna be on TV interview with a bunch
of baby boomers on public TV WGBH, Boston.
Almost 4 years ago, Barbara and I went
to a mansion in Massachusetts and were
interviewed for a proposed TV documentary–
a kind of baby boomer retreat.
Not like the retreats and gatherings at Cabot
Shores–no kayaks present, no moose or eagles
in sight–but experts on
health, relationships, finance, sex, food…
It was fun but the pilot wasn’t syndicated, but
now it’s back and we got a call to go to Boston
to be re-interviewed!
Barbara and the other boomers were clear, photogenic
and engaging. The host and production crew were terrific.
Not so sure about
