Planning and hosting a special event or retreat amid these wild times is nothing short of challenging, chiefly because of strict COVID-19 restrictions. Thankfully, many safe-havens, such as Cape Breton Island’s Cabot Shores, offer a unique blend of seclusion, private acreage, natural beauty, rustic sophistication, and on-site adventure. Throughout the year, Cabot Shores’ dedicated event planning staff helps curate and host everything from waterfront weddings to long-overdue family reunions and rewarding corporate retreats amid Nova Scotia’s most beautiful landscape.
The Most Rewarding Retreats in Nova Scotia
There’s never an off-season for event planning here along the breathtaking Cabot Trail, a 300-kilometre stretch of road that circles the island. As one of the “coolest places to go glamping in Canada,” we welcome a diverse array of travellers, many of which arrive in small or mid-sized groups. We specialize in wellness retreats, which typically include yoga, adventure-based exercise, healthy meals, acupuncture, meditation, and unique lodgings. However, no two retreats are alike, primarily because we offer a diverse range of potential mid-day activities, including guided hikes, bonfire gatherings, live concerts, cider making, wildlife observations, stargazing, and culinary demonstrations. Cabot Shores’ credo remains “awaken, explore, discover,” a three-part summons that invokes thoughts of reawakening your wild spirit in a peaceful, eco-friendly environment.
Business Meetings and Special Events
Cabot Shores boasts an array of multi-functional facilities that can play host to business meetings, large family gatherings, birthday parties, and team-building exercises. With 55 pristine acres of land and eight types of unique lodgings, your next retreat will unquestionably be one-of-a-kind. Step one is filling out our special event request form, which allows groups to customize their experience. You’ll have the rare opportunity to hand-select wellness services, amenities, activities, event needs, and lodging interests. Everything from dietary restrictions to wheelchair accessibility and equipment rentals is taken into consideration. Some of our most common special events include reunions, corporate retreats, birthdays, bachelor (and bachelorette) parties, and business meetings.

Whether your group prefers to “sleep in the sky” or relishes the genuine feeling of simplicity, you’ll no doubt remember the time you all gathered at Cabot Shores. Keep in mind that retreats and special events can include catered meals, pet-friendly accommodations, hot tub parties, boat tours, and so many more add-ons.
