"A tree top village with Smurf-like domes rising out of the forest and Mongolian yurts in Nova Scotia? Indeed! Cabot Shores on Cape Breton Island entices you to embrace your nomadic roots and connect to nature. You can stay in one of the colourful yurts or opt for a geodesic dome raised up off the ground. Take in the lake views and the Atlantic waters on both sides, while the smell of cedar fills the air. Be sure to have your camera ready to snap a moose photo (they love it there)."

"The whole experience was so relaxed and stress free"

My only regret is that I didn't schedule more time here! Already dreaming of my next visit! I have a feeling this will be a place I visit for years to come.

~ Erin, Fredericton

"Next time, I'll stay longer"

Cabot Shores is a must for anyone wanting to truly take in the beauty of the area. Staying in a yurt is even better, and Paul knows how to make it a top of the class experience. Take advantage of the hot tub service and dinner at the bistro. The breakfast is a perfect way to start your day exploring.

~ Elizabeth, Washington

"The setting is gorgeous"

And the people are warm and friendly. I would happily have stayed longer, and hope to have the chance to go back one day. Staying here was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

~ Guest, Toronto

"The resort is in a perfect location"

Days were spent out off on the Cabot Trail and other excursions, while evenings were cozy in the Go Bistro on the grounds. Evenings were spent around the fire pit outside our chalet with our friends. Close enough to get into nearby towns for food/drink, on the Cabot Trail and still far enough that you truly feel like you are in the wilderness.
