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 Used by nomadic peoples, it was originally made of felt and furs.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.
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.
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.
Available only during warmer months, this canvas covered yurt is secluded and private - a real wilderness experience!
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
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.
What a wonderful place you have here. Truly a home away from home.The yurt was awesome. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming.
