Open year round. Choose between a beautiful chalet, a magical yurt, a tranquility dome, cozy lodge room, tipi, or a campsite. Cabot Shores is the perfect base camp to explore Cape Breton and the Cabot Trial. But first, explore our great packages.
Cabot Shores is located along Indian Brook, which leads you west to three amazing waterfalls and into the Indian Brook wilderness. Go north and you meet the French River wilderness. We have maps and have worked on developing a wilderness trail on the south and north sides of Indian Brook. By summer, you can add swimming and boogie boarding to the exploits on Indian Brook and by winter, snowshoeing. Enjoy geocaching? Get out your GPS, because there are caches throughout Cabot Shores, and all along the trail to Indian Brook Great Falls.
Hikes are of different levels of difficulty, from the Red Island Trail – which can be reached by beach or 3km down the Cabot Trail from us – to the highest waterfall (North River). Waterfalls are a bit of a favourite with us. Here’s some of what you’ll discover:
Duration: 4-5 hours round trip. It really depends on how often you stop for wild strawberries, swims, or the occasional photo.
Duration: 15-20 minutes for each location. The two falls are about a four-minute drive from each other.
Duration: 4-5 hours round trip. This is a tricky one, be sure to check with us for a list of supplies.
Duration: 4 hours round trip. The views are so breathtaking, your hiking boots will transform into dancing shoes.
Duration: As long as you like. We have maps, advice, and even guides if you need them.
