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 and then saw the property at Indian Brook where we saw the opportunity to build a special Resort and Retreat Centre, one where people can easily discover and create their favorite adventures.
The natural beauty of Cape Breton, the warmth and hospitality among its 3 main cultures all drew us to create Cabot Shores, where great stories and memories are guaranteed.
The Chalets are a Perfect Gathering Place for Two Familes, Two Couples or A Private Getaway like An Anniversary, Golfing Trip or Just Plain R&R
Year-round, you can choose from a wealth of activities including outdoor sports, nature awareness expeditions, and native cultural experiences. Canoeing, hiking, mountain biking, bird and whale watching, massages and acupuncture, and many other activities are available in Cabot Shores. You can create your own program at your own rhythm, or sign up for one of our all-inclusive adventures and retreats.
Cabot Shores is also a local hot spot for evening entertainment. Join us in Whiff's Lodge for cabaret-dinners, ceilidhs, concerts and dances to celebrate and learn about Cape Breton's culture and heritage!
Easily accessible and less than an hour drive from Sydney's airport, Cabot Shores is the ideal year-round destination - inside or out.
