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 welcomes the entire family; consider us pet-friendly.
At Cabot Shores we consider pets family, and it is not really a vacation when you leave a member of the family behind. We have 55 acres to explore, so you’ve got a lot of ground to cover! Your dog/s can swim in the Indian Brook river, Church Pond lake and the Atlantic Ocean while staying at Cabot Shores – and even boating if they are so inclined! Check out our photos above of dogs in kayaks. Cabot Shores also has a scenic system of trails and a never-ending supply of fresh air.
Pet Friendly Accommodations
We have several accommodations that are pet friendly, including:
Mongolian Yurts are pet friendly with the exception of Lil’ Red and the Sky Yurt. These yurts are available year-round and are insulated with a canvas and felt covering and bound with the traditional use of horse hair rope. Each yurt is handmade and ornately painted by families who live in Mongolia and who have lived in yurts for many generations. Yurts offer a very interesting and unique outdoor experience and have splendid views of our small lake and the Atlantic Ocean. To know more about staying in a yurt during cold weather, visit our FAQ blog. To see more photos or book a yurt, click here.
The fresh smelling and roomy Cedar Yurt is a special experience much different from the Mongolian style yurts. With a double bed and two single bunk beds, a small couch, wood stove and table and chairs, this yurt is capable of hosting up to 4-5 people comfortably. A cedar soaking hot tub is located right outside the door. To know more about staying in a yurt during cold weather, visit our FAQ blog. To see more photos or book a yurt, click here.
Lodge Rooms 5, 6a/6b (which is a suit that can be rented together or separately) are also pet friendly and each feature their own private outdoor entrance. Located on ground level, stepping out of these lodge rooms leads you to our trails through the apple orchard, to the beach, or down by the brook. To see more photos or book a lodge room, click here.
All four of our Chalets are also pet friendly and are a lot like being at home. With two floors, full kitchen and two bathrooms, these rustic chalets can accommodate between 6-8 people. There is a large hot tub and BBQ that is available for rent (subject to availability). For more photos, information, or to book a chalet, click here.
Lastly is the Breton Cove farmhouse located approximately 12km from Cabot Shores on the Cabot Trail. Capable of comfortably accommodating up to 12 people, the farmhouse has its own hiking trail bordering the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and is rich in wild flowers, wildlife and is very private.
There is a maximum of 3 dogs per accommodation unless special arrangements have been made. The fee is $10 per day, per dog.
Pets must be on a leash in the general vicinity of Cabot Shores. Please supervise your dogs at accommodations, campsites or on our trails as all our guests may have varying levels of comfort around dogs. Dogs are not allowed in our Bistro / main room of the lodge.
We would appreciate if guests kept their pets off of furniture and beds.
Please pick up after your dog! Poop bags available at reception.
Pet owners will be held responsible and a recovery fee will be applied if any damage is caused by their pets.
