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. We have over 55 acres of hiking goodness.
