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.
Want to burn some calories this winter? Strap on a pair of snowshoes and go exploring on and off our trails. We have snowshoes available if you don’t have your own.
Considered as one of the all-time best aerobic workouts, cross-country skiing in the crisp, fresh Atlantic sea air is sure to refresh your spirit. For fantastic groomed trails, there are two places to check out – Ski Tuonella (25 minutes away) and North Highlands Nordic Ski Trails (1 hour away). Interesting note: North Highlands Nordic in Cape North is the site of the 1987 Canada Winter Games.
Downhill Skiing & Snowboarding
Grab your skis and snowboard and head to majestic Cape Smokey Ski Area. A short 30-minute drive takes you to the only ski resort on the Cabot Trail. Only open on weekends.
For avid hikers, getting out on the trails is a four-season activity, which is awesome for our guests. There are trails along Indian Brook and Church Pond right on the property, but also the Cape Breton Highlands National Park is only a 45 minutes drive away – and it’s uncrowded and beautiful in winter.
Sounds good to you? How about sleeping in a cozy yurt after your winter adventure on Cape Breton? Have a look at our Snow Much Fun Package!
