While there’s never an off-season for romance here at Cabot Shores (Nova Scotia’s most unique resort), there’s something magical about spending Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart on our sprawling, 55-acre estate. Cabot Shores hugs the vast Atlantic Ocean, world-famous Cabot Trail, and peaceful Indian Brook—a trifecta of genuine natural splendour. Thanks to our eclectic mix of lodging options, ranging from a tiny house to the Atlantic Dome and the Flying Moose yurt, no two Valentine’s Day couples getaways are alike.
Adventurous (or Relaxing) Valentine’s Day Ideas
Because of Cape Breton Island’s coastal locale, mid-February is much warmer than 99 percent of Canada. Thus, guests have ready access to countless outdoor pursuits, such as Nordic skiing, snowshoeing (or winter hiking), and the always-enthralling search for frozen waterfalls. Couples can take full advantage of Cabot Shores’ $10 snowshoe rentals. Tramping through several feet of snowpack while flakes flutter from the sky above will make for a memorable Valentine’s Day couples getaway. Back at the resort, couples can indulge in Cabot Shores’ various healing arts, including qi gong, mediation, and reiki. We also have a barrel sauna and outdoor hot tubs, perfect for warming up again after outdoor adventures.
Delicious, Locally-Sourced Dining, Often with Live Music
The Cabot Shores Bistro features nutritious, locally-sourced fare, ranging from fresh-caught seafood to vegan delights and homemade pasta. Meal plans include a fresh, healthy breakfast and a hearty two-course dinner. The menus change with the seasons, but some of our returning favourites include the seafood chowder, Coq au Vin, and Indian and Sri Lankan curries. Cabot Shores Bistro’s interior atmosphere is warm and welcoming on chilly evenings. Fresh aromas from outdoor wood-fired cooking pair perfectly with the eye-popping plate presentation and extensive wine list. Make sure to book a reservation for the annual Valentine’s Day dinner well in advance. Last year’s dessert special was the chocolate lava cake with custard cream—yum! And this year, couples will be treated to live music by Colette Deveau, a Cape Breton singer-songwriter.
A Long-Awaited Valentine’s Day Couples Getaway
But, of course, the most important aspect of a Valentine’s Day couples getaway is the overnight accommodation. Cabot Shores is an award-winning resort featuring everything from spacious chalets to the four-season dome and the lodge. However, the main wintertime attraction is our collection of Mongolian yurts, most of which feature Church Pond views, wood-burning stoves, electric heaters, and comfortable furnishings. It’s a bucket list glamping experience that’s tailor-made for Valentine’s Day. When the sun dips behind the trees, feel free to bundle up and head outside to admire the jaw-dropping, star-speckled evening sky.
