Wake up early at Cabot Shores and you'll see a sunrise above the Bird Islands, the Atlantic and Church Pond.

Walk along the southern part of the property and you'll see eagles taking fish upstream to their nest past a waterfall. Moose and other wildlife are occasionally seen from a distance in our nature sanctuary, where you can stop and pick wild blueberries and
raspberries in season.

Go inside your chalet and you'll feel that the local fresh spruce and hemlock shines from the sunlight going through your large windows. Two floors, you have upstairs and downstairs bedrooms, two baths, a full kitchen and dining room/living room.

Outside you have a covered deck for reading and in front of your chalet is a fire site where you can have a campfire or cook food and eat on your picnic table.

Down the path is access to Cabot Shores' lodge which has a Bistro in the Great Room. Often there is live music and for 2-3 nights a week you'll find live music nearby. The Cabot Trail Acoustic Festival comes in September and the famous Celtic Colors in October.

Your chalet is available all 4 seasons, well insulated and heated by electric or wood heat. Outside you can elect to use a Japanese cedar soaking tub or have your own private Softtub. Lots of guests use the chalet as a home base for the Cabot Trail and exploring Cape Breton.

Area Information:
Your chalet is right on the Cabot Trail, considered by National Geographic and Conde Nast as one of the best drives in the world.

Along the Trail are hills looking out on the Atlantic. Cabot Shores itself has a 2007 foot beach with one side touching the Atlantic and the other on Church Pond. Guests can go there via our Eagle Feather Ferry, a rowboat with a rope/pulley used solo by a 91 year guest and even a 5 year old, with many ages in between.

On Cabot Shores itself is a nature sanctuary going next to hidden coves in the Pond where you can find wild ducks and geese, even a beaver dam. Along Indian Brook on our south boundary is a superb swimming hole and holes for several strains of trout.

Along the Cabot Trail, near your chalet, is an artisan's loop featuring: silver pewter jewelry of Celtic design; local leather workers, wood workers, potters, hat makers and other local craftspeople

Less than 2 miles away is a church which has Sunday services open to the public and during summer Ceilidh (celtic concerts) twice a week.

Your chalet at Cabot Shores is mid way between two of the best golf courses in Canada - Highland Links in Ingonish and Bell Bay in Baddeck.

In Baddeck you'll also find the Alexander Graham Bell Museum and just up the road from your chalet is the Cape Breton Highlands Park.

Outside your door, depending on the season, you can hike, snowshoe, x-country ski and rent canoes, kayaks and stand up paddleboards.

We can help you to arrange local puffin, whale and sailing tours.

Our Bistro has a variety of local seafood, meat and vegetarian fare, while chalet guests also like to participate in frequent pizza parties taking place between your chalet and the lodge in a wood fired pizza oven (see video).

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What can you do at Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort?
A: While Cabot Shores is conveniently located on the Cabot Trail and near the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, there is plenty to do on site. With 55 acres of natural sanctuary surrounding our accommodations, you can experience the fresh waters of the Indian Brook, Church Pond, and the ocean beyond from our beach. Canoes, kayaks, stand up paddle boards, and in winter, snowshoes are available for rent. Trails along the property lead you through our orchard, to the beach, and the forest by the brook - and one continues on to a spectacular hike to a waterfall. Take the Eagle Feather Ferry across Church Pond to our rocky beach and spend the day looking for the treasures that wash ashore. Book a Japanese Cedar hot tub, a session in our Infrared Sauna, or take advantage of our complimentary Qi Gong and guided meditation sessions. Acupuncture also available.

Indoor activities include a ping pong and pool table, board games and card games, and library.
Q: Do you have a restaurant?
A: Our Bistro at Cabot Shores is open daily and offers a menu of homemade cuisine with fresh ingredients straight from the garden. Our specialty is vegetarian and vegan food!
