Overview

About the property

All domes come with double beds and private decks.

Domes, geodesic and 3 treehouse domes are new shelters at Cabot Shores.

The domes are each 16 feet in diameter. Circular, they have a bay window with great views, a side vent and extensive skylight portals offering you a view of the stars by night and the occasional eagle flying overhead by day. Outside are fire pits and picnic tables.

The Luna Dome is a tree house built for two. It sits in the apple orchard and gives you a view of sky and bay.

Next to it the Apple Dome sits on a treehouse deck between apple trees with a nice view of Kelly's mountain and the bay. It has a double bed and a swing chair.

The Eagle dome has a great view of orchard, ocean and stars.

For nature lovers: The Atlantic dome sits on a low platform in the trees, has a double bed and a swing chair.

Spare mattresses for friends or children fit easily in Apple, Eagle and Atlantic Dome. The domes are only available in warmer months. For winter, think about our cozy Mongolian Yurts with heaters and/or wood stoves!

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, hiking, stand up paddle boarding or kayaking with Barbara and Cosmo.

Dr. Paul purchased this house in 2004

Why Dr. Paul chose Nova Scotia

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 house 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 chalet, from the cozy lodge to the tree house domes in our orchard! Rent a Kayak, canoe or stand up paddle board to explore the pond and Indian Brook, then visit 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.
