Fall was full of amazing music, colorful leaves and stunning sunsets (as above).  Now as winter is coming, guests are still enjoying hot tubs on the decks of yurts, chalets and the lodge.  Under the stars and occasional snowflakes…

Chef’s Corner

~ Braised Lamb Shank with Tomato and Honey Barley ~

Here’s a sneak peak of one dish we will be preparing for guests over the holidays! Lamb is a great meat to cook for family gatherings. While keeping in mind that you want to treat your guests; you probably don’t want to spend your whole day in the kitchen! This all-in-one recipe is great because it only takes roughly 20 minutes of preparation, but it looks and tastes like the real deal! Click here to view recipe. Looking for a great side dish? Also try our Roasted Pepper and Potato recipe!

~ Circumambulating the Bay of Fundy ~

Late this past October Paul and Barbara took some time to make their way around (and across) the Bay of Fundy. “We had previously explored the Minas Basin part of the Bay hiking such places as Economy Point and Cape Chignecto, as well as Blomidon and Cape Split (a favourite), but hadn’t seen any of the South-Western areas of this amazing body of water.

After a longish drive from Cape Breton and two ferry rides, we arrived on Brier Island, NS’s most Western point, at sunset and managed to take a quick walk to the Western shore which we then explored more fully on the next day.” Read more on Cabot Shores Blog.

~ The Rescue of the Eagle Feather Ferry ~

Beloved by guests from 5 to 91, the Eagle Feather Ferry takes you from the end of the apple orchard to Eagle Feather Beach at Cabot Shores. Guests love taking their kids (and dogs) out to Eagle Feather Beach, with its colored rocks and the chance to swim in the Atlantic Ocean, with a rinse off in the fresh water of Church Pond.

While Barbara and Dr. Paul were hiking this fall at Fundy Park, there was serious flooding at Cabot Shores. The concrete pole holding the Eagle Feather Ferry to land was pulled out of the ground, canoes and kayaks went floating around Church Pond and the Eagle Feather Ferry sunk! Read more on Cabot Shores Blog.
