Open year round. Choose between a beautiful chalet, a magical yurt, a treetop or tranquility dome, cozy lodge room, 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 Used by nomadic peoples for thousands of years, the yurt was originally made of felt and furs.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 10 Yurts at Cabot Shores: 9 Mongolian Yurts and 1 Cedar yurt. All yurts have their own decks, fantastic views of our lake, the Atlantic ocean and Bird Islands, or the forest, and nearby fire pits to gather around. Our nine 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 wood stove, queen and bunk beds, small table and a Japanese cedar soaking tub directly outside the door! Use of the cedar soaking tub is optional (a nightly fee of $50 plus tax) or it can be ordered as part of the honeymoon and hot tub and other packages.Wood and kindling available inside your yurt and during winter; we will start the fire before you arrive. Outdoor wood for fires in a nearby fire pit are only $10 a bundle.
- Showers and washrooms are located a short distance away from yurts with shower, toilet and sink available in the lodge. The Cedar Tan Yurt is pet-friendly. It is also close to the lodge and lodge parking lot. It has a privacy lattice around a large deck, but some folks want more isolation. Others find it a perfect refuge.
