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.
Enjoy 4 season lodging along Cape Breton’s Cabot Trail and the Atlantic coast of Cape Breton.
Private Chalets (lodging with great views of the Atlantic and Bird Islands)
Beautiful wooden chalets with a perfect combination of rustic charm and modern conveniences. Each furnished individually with a combination of Queen-sized day bed, doubles, single beds and pull-outs as well as two full bathrooms. Chalets will sleep up to eight and are pet friendly.
The Magical Yurts (circular lodging with hand-made and hand-painted rafters)
Want a unique tent experience to tell friends and family? Stay in one of our Yurts. Each one is raised on a wooden deck with incredible views of the Atlantic Ocean and Church Pond. (Hint, hint: Keep your camera ready to photograph a moose.) A Yurt is a Mongolian-style circular tent complete with comfy beds. Most yurts are pet-friendly.

Tucked Among the Trees
A geodesic dream getaway. The first and only of its kind in Cape Breton. It’s glamping at its best. Close to showers and washrooms. And, of course, a fabulous view to the ocean. Be sure to bring a good book to enjoy while relaxing in our unique hanging chair. Then fall asleep looking up to the stars from four skylight windows. Note that the Tranquility Dome, like the Eagle and Apple and Luna Domes, is not pet-friendly.
