Welcome to the warmth and rustic luxury of Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort & Retreat Centre. Located along the Cabot Trail with 55 acres of private sanctuary overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Cabot Shores offers breathtaking views and outdoor adventures on site (such as kayak, canoe, hiking etc), with many recommended activities near by.
Along with many other interesting and unique accommodations (such as yurts, tipi's and domes), Cabot Shores has four bright and spacious chalets that can accommodate couples, groups and even pets! With a full kitchen, dining and living area, two bathrooms and covered terrace, you can enjoy the comforts of home while experiencing the wonders of Cape Breton Island. If you don't feel like cooking, join us in our Bistro featuring healthy menu's and organic ingredients from our garden.
Each chalet is over 950 sq feet with wooden interiors decorated with original artwork, with the best view of the Bird Islands and our private beach from the top floor. Open four seasons, have your choice of electric heat or curl up by a wood stove.
Guests enjoy our complimentary meditation and Qi Gong sessions. Rent kayaks, canoes, yoloboard, snowshoes, or simply explore our trails along the Indian Brook and ocean. Hot tub, cedar soaking tubs and infrared sauna also available. A variety of guest facilities including outdoor barbecues and wood fired pizza oven, coin laundry and wifi available.
At Cabot Shores, your hosts are Dr. Paul and Barbara Weinberg, Cosmo the guide dog and friendly staff. Barbara is an accomplished acupuncturist, vegetarian chef and gardener. Dr. Paul is a former 'road warrior', teacher and psychologist, who considers his doctorate now to be in 'adventure travel'. Paul can be found jamming on the blues harmonica and trombone, or hiking, yoloboarding or kayaking with Barbara and Cosmo.
Paul Weinberg purchased this chalet in 2004
We've traveled the world and found Cape Breton to be a unique, unspoiled and sacred place. We bought and renovated a farmhouse at Breton Cove in 2000, then saw the opportunity at Indian Brook to build a special resort and retreat center where people can easily discover and create their own adventure.
The natural beauty of Cape Breton, and the warmth and hospitality among its three main cultures (Mi'kmaq, Acadian and Scottish) drew us to create Cabot Shores, where great stories and memories are guaranteed.
Cabot Shores is not just a bed to sleep in, it is a chance to create your own adventure all in one location. With so many different and unique accommodations, you can experience something completely new each time you come - from a Mongolian Yurt to a tipi, or the quiet lodge to the tree house dome in our orchard! Kayak, canoe or yoloboard in the Indian Brook, then explore our private beach and the ocean beyond by crossing on the Eagle Feather ferry. Have a picnic by the river or hike the waterfall trail. See moose cross the water while sitting in one of our cedar soaking tubs. Try meditation, Qi Gong or acupuncture. Ask us how we can help create the adventure you are looking for.
A lovely time that will stay in our hearts and minds, Thanks
