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.
The Yurt or Ger is a kind of Mongolian-styled structure, comparable to a First Nations Tipi. Used by nomadic peoples for thousands of years, the yurt was originally made of felt and furs.
We have six Yurts at Cabot Shores: 5 Mongolian Yurts and 1 Cedar yurt. All yurts have their own decks, fantastic views of our lake, the Atlantic ocean and Bird Islands, and nearby fire pits to gather around. Our five Mongolian yurts are available 4 seasons and are hand painted by families in Mongolia, featuring unique handmade furniture and decor, skylights, and are insulated with felt, canvas and bound by horsehair ropes.
Our Cedar style yurt is available 4 seasons. This spacious yurt smells of fresh cedar boards with a small wood stove, double and twin bed, small table and a Japanese cedar soaking tub directly outside the door! Wood and kindling available inside your yurt and during winter, we will start the fire before you arrive.
