Our Journey

Have you ever been somewhere that takes your breath away, that is so beautiful you feel there's magic in the air? That’s how Paul and Barbara (the owners) felt when they explored the land and then created Cabot Shores. We hope you’ll feel the same way!

"We Had the Most Wonderful Stay"

Beautiful location with so many wonderful aspects of nature you don't normally get anywhere else. The staff are all friendly and respectfully, willing to help you with any issues. I could not have asked for anywhere better to stay when visiting Cape Breton.
