Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort is a Wellness and Wilderness retreat centre located along the serene landscape of the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Open year round, Cabot Shores offers a mixture of outdoor adventure, interesting and relaxing accommodations and health services. We are also pet friendly!

Enjoy your time with us in a room in Whiff’s Lodge, a Mongolian or Cedar style Yurt, or one of our Chalets big enough for the whole family. We also have a Tipi, Atlantic glamping Dome and a tree-house style Luna Dome sheltered by clusters of trees in our orchard. Camping available facing the ocean as well as bordering the calm waters of the Indian Brook. For larger gatherings of family and friends, ask about the Breton Cove Farm House located 12km away from Cabot Shores. Our Bistro is also open year round and serves a fresh variety of Seafood, Grilled Meats, Soups and Chowders plus vegan and vegetarian options as well.

Adventures from Mild to Wild:

If you’re passionate about the outdoors, Cabot Shores is the place for you. Kayak, canoe, hike and snowshoe on-site and enjoy the beauty of both the freshwater Indian Brook and the ocean beyond. Take yourself across on the Eagle Feather Ferry to our beach, explore near trails or join us for guided hikes, puffin and whale excursions, waterfalls and more!

Gate of Life Healing Arts:

Cabot Shores offers services such as Acupuncture, Qi Gong, Japanese soaking tubs and an Infrared Sauna onsite. We are happy to provide an initial guide to meditation and the use of our cedar meditation house. Stay in touch via our newsletter to be notified of our yoga and meditation retreats.
