Cabot Shores: Home to the Finest Cape Breton Chalets

Finding the perfect chalet in Canada that fits your family’s size, style, and budget like a puzzle piece is no small task. However, a trip up to Nova Scotia’s award-winning Cabot Shores will assuredly be the best decision that you make this summer. Cabot Shores is widely celebrated for its environmentally-conscious practices, geodesic domes, and 55-acre private sanctuary. The bottom line is that there’s never been a more enticing time to visit breathtaking Cape Breton Island, particularly for those who value an extended stay in a rustic yet distinctly Nova Scotian chalet. Luckily for you, Cabot Shores boasts the finest Cape Breton chalets, all of which can be utilized throughout the year.

The Best Cape Breton Chalets | The Chalet Lifestyle

Today’s hospitality buzzwords include cleanliness, isolation, remote, beauty, and seclusion (among many others). In a way, this five-word collection perfectly encapsulates the chalet lifestyle that’s readily obtainable at Cabot Shores, one of the most luxurious glamping sites in the country. Yes, our secluded, restorative haven features yurts, domes, a farmhouse, a lodge, and sprawling tenting acreage. Still, there’s just something superlative about spending a week or two inside one of premier handcrafted Cape Breton chalets. 

First and foremost, our wooden chalets exude simplicity, charm, and comfort, with equal dashes of modernity and hinterland. Secondly, each chalet has an optional hot tub on the deck that peers out toward the Atlantic. It’s quite common to see guests basking in the hot tub around dusk with a glass of wine in hand. The chalet lifestyle should include home-cooked meals, coffee on the deck, stargazing, s’mores, roasted weenies, and picnics on the lawn.

Explore the Cabot Trail

Cabot Shores’ overall appeal is equal parts outdoor adventure, gourmet cuisine, utter isolation, and distinctive lodging. At the end of the day, most visitors value our private acreage and proximity to the island’s best exploratory pursuits. Upon arrival, guests have instant access to a wide variety of watercrafts, such as kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards. An abundance of hiking trails, fishing honey holes, and hidden caches are also within reach. All of these potential mid-day activities are within walking distance of the chalets.

The island itself is known as a paddler’s playground, hiker’s paradise, and angler’s sanctum. And, because the Atlantic Ocean is so close to our small fleet of Cape Breton chalets, many travellers explore the coastline after a short voyage aboard the property’s Eagle Feather Ferry.

A Well-Deserved Summertime Escape

Provincial and national parks are beginning to re-open for hiking, native birding, and geocaching—stay informed by visiting this website often. Cabot Shores’ Bistro, meanwhile, remains open for delivery for those who opt to not use their chalet kitchen. Breakfast and a two- or three-course dinner can be delivered. Much of the menu comes from the on-site gardens and orchards, as well as fresh-off-the-boat lobster through mid-July. Whether you aim to plan a much-needed digital detox, glamping getaway, or wellness retreat, Nova Scotia’s Cabot Trail might be precisely what the family needs right now.

We had an excellent stay! We stayed in the tiny house and got the hot tub as an addition - the house was an adorable little cabin, very clean and had everything we needed (mini fridge, microwave and more!). The hot tub was worth the addition! Paul and the staff were so considerate, he even called me before we arrived and let me know how the roads were and to make sure I knew how to get to the tiny house since we were probably arriving after dark. I can’t say enough good things! We will definitely be back!

My husband and I got married at Cabot Shores last October, after staying there multiple times in the past and falling in love with the scenery and food!! Paul was amazing to deal with leading up to the wedding! I was definitely a needy bride lol and he was always so patient and helpful with everything. The whole thing went off without any issues at all and my guests had a great time and raved on and on about the food! We are huge out door people and loved the whole vibe ! We can’t wait to go back again soon and make more wonderful memories at this slice of heaven in our favourite place in the world, Cape Breton !!

An unforgettable experience for a family trip. A yurt experience is more than just lodging, especially if you have young children. What is most impressive of all is the owner and his wife, who are so kind and affectionate.

Stayed in the Phoenix Dome for 2 nights and had the most wonderful experience. The dome was lovely and stayed warm through the night. The highlight of our stay was the food. My husband has been a chef for 20+ years and was blown away by the quality of the food. We had dinner one evening and the salmon was absolute perfection. We were lucky enough to be the only guests for breakfast so they cooked us a few items instead of the buffet and we enjoyed every bite. Hands down the best scrambled eggs I have ever eaten! The staff were so wonderful, kind and accommodating. We would love to return and spend more time here exploring the trails and relaxing on the beach. Thank you to everyone at Cabot Trail for such a wonderful experience!

Hot tubs were great, overlooking the gorgeous water view. Yurt was super comfortable, very spacious, and even when the fire died while we were sleeping, we stayed cozy and warm - the bedding was superb. Recommendation for Red River Trail was great, and we enjoyed the hike very much.

The staff at Cabot Shores actively took opportunities to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. Our Mongolian Yurt was comfortable with the wood stove and outside hot tub. Would strongly recommend calling these fine folks and discussing your stay with them.

Very nice place to spend a couple of nights in the nature! My wife and I enjoyed our stay.It might be a good idea to install a heater in the dome as it can get chilly at night.

We had a great stay in the Eagle Dome! We loved watching the sunset and sunrise, and being able to hear the waves from the ocean. Next time we would stay a few more days and prepare a bit better - we weren’t packed for off grid but we made it work. Outhouse was a few steps away, shower and toilet a short walk. We didn’t get the hot tub or use the sauna/other amenities but would certainly consider it next time.
