Overview

Indian Brook Hotel Rental Photos and Description

Yurts available 4 seasons with deck, fire pit and cedar soaking tubs!

The Yurt or 'Ger' is a Mongolian structure, comparable to a First Nations Tipi. Used by nomadic peoples, it was originally made of felt and furs. After being westernized by folks from Oregon and British Columbia, the Yurt has been transformed. At Cabot Shores, we have 5 Yurts of three different styles to choose from.

Mongolian Yurts

Hand painted from ceiling to floor, our Mongolian Yurts are 16.5-19 feet in diameter with their own deck. The cozy, insulated interior features comfortable beds, one electrical outlet and a skylight. Bathrooms/shower available a short distance away. Japanese cedar soaking tub available next to yurts with an unbeatable view of the Atlantic Ocean, Bird Islands and our freshwater pond. Can comfortably sleep 2-5 people. Pet friendly.

Cedar Yurt

Located near our orchard trail, the Cedar Yurt is 20 feet in diameter with a Japanese cedar soaking tub and fire pit available right outside the door. Equipped with a wood stove, two windows and dome skylight, the cedar yurt has one electrical outlet with bathrooms/shower a short distance away. With 1 double and 1 twin sized bed, and room to fit one more twin bed, this yurt can comfortably sleep 2-4 people. Pet friendly.

Wilderness Yurt

Available only during warmer months, this canvas covered yurt is secluded and private - a real wilderness experience!

About Dr. Paul

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.

Dr. Paul purchased this hotel in 2004

Why Dr. Paul chose Indian Brook

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.

What makes this hotel unique

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.

An amazing gem hidden in the hills of Cape Breton!

  • 5 of 5

I visited Cabot Shores and was blown away by the hospitality, and the breath taking views of Indian Brook and the Cape Breton mountains. We were warmly greeted by the staff and the property was so cute! Unique yurts, an infra red sauna, snowshoes for rent and lots of trails to discover, meditation session in the morning and a warm fire and borrowing library at the lodge.

We had the opportunity to have a communal meal with the owners, Barbara and Paul, which was an evening of great conversation and food!

The atmosphere is very laid back and unique, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Great place to relax!

Great place to visit!

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I made a last minute decision to leave the city for New Years, and were warmly welcomed at Cabot Shores. The place was quiet and friendly and the food was home cooked and delicious. The hikes around the property were beautiful as well. We really felt like we were able to get a much needed break from our busy lives in the city. Many thanks to everyone for making it such a great place to bring in the new year! We hope to return soon.
