Cabot Shores Has Gift Certificates that make great presents anytime–open year round with unique lodging, bistro dining, adventure and relaxation as separate highlights or in customizabale packages. We focus on experiences here, and sometimes the best gift to give is the gift of a romantic getaway, retreat or adventure along the Cabot Trail. Besides packages, this is what your family, friends and loved ones can use a gift certificate for:
Unique & Comfortable Lodging
Lodging is just the beginning – and we have a wide selection of unique accommodations that range from yurts and geodesic domes to lodge rooms and chalets and the tiny house.
The domes with their many windows and see-through walls are an amazing experience for stargazers and are available in the warmer months. Our Mongolian Yurts and the spacious Cedar Yurt however are also an option for winter. With the fire going in the wood stove or the heater on, our guests stay toasty no matter what. Every room in our main lodge is different, but all come with beautiful original art on the walls, cozy beds and private bathrooms. If you want to surprise a family or group of friends, the chalets can accommodate 6-9 people and come with a kitchen, 1,5 to 2 bathrooms, sitting area and private deck with a hot tub, and with a fire site for camp fires just in front.
Most of of our accommodations are pet-friendly.
Dining in our Bistro
With talented chefs on site, our Bistro offers delicious food year round! Our menu includes vegetarian dishes, local fish and seafood, and hearty chicken/meat options. Guests also love the outdoor, wood-fired pizza oven and weekly summer cookouts. Let us know of dietary restrictions and we’ll try our best to accommodate.
The Cabot Shores Bistro stands for slow-cooked, nutritious and fresh meals. Lots of greens, vegetables and herbs are sourced from our organic garden just out the door. Baked goods and pasta are made from scratch. And while our guests enjoy the flavours of their dinner, they can sip on local Big Spruce craft beer, Nova Scotian wines or homemade apple cider.
We’re open daily for dinner between 5:30 and 7:30pm and appreciate your reservation at 1-866-929-2584 or online for a Cabot Shores Bistro Reservation.
Adventures on Land & Water
Hiking, snowshoeing, boating – if your loved ones are outdoorsy, they can do all that right here or in the wilderness close-by. We offer guided hikes to less known mountain summits or hidden caves, lush forests and waterfalls.
With our selection of canoes, kayaks or stand up paddle boards, guests can explore Church Pond and Indian Brook right at the resort. They might see an eagle flying over them or find the beaver dam, stop for a swim or enjoy fall foliage from a different perspective.
Healing Arts & Retreats
We welcome guests for a number of reasons, and stress relief is at the top of the list. Other than the natural benefits of being in a pristine outdoor environment, Cabot Shores offers a number of Wellness and Healing Arts services that can be applied individually or in a group setting. Acupuncture and acupressure is among the most popular, along with complimentary morning sessions of guided meditation and Qi Gong (a practice similar to that of Tai Chi). We also offer interesting guided practices such as outdoor walking meditation, yoga and wellness retreats.
To detox and relax after a long day of exploring, guests can book sessions in our infrared sauna. To treat sore muscles, warm up after a snowshoe hike or simply enjoy the night sky, imagine an evening in a Japanese Ofuro Cedar soaking tub or classic hot tub – right on the deck of your accommodation or nestled between trees with pond and ocean views.
Great Food and Music
Great food and live music is also a draw for guests. Consider a gift certificate for a frequent Saturday night event at Cabot Shores: a three course dinner, concert and music jam. See the Events section for the schedule. And check out the most recent artist(s) coming to Cabot Shores
Holidays at Cabot Shores
Many families decide to take their holidays away from home, to give the designated family or resident cook a break from cooking. Whether over Thanksgiving weekend during Celtic Colours and the changing Foliage of October, or the last week of December culminating in New Year’s Eve and a New Year’s day polar bear swim or Valentine’s Day or in summer kicking off Canada Day weekend, there is fun at Cabot Shores and a gift certificate is just the ticket.
Why Buy Gift Certificates at Cabot Shores?
We are counting on you only to gift to people who you think would enjoy the Cabot Shores experience. We are not for everyone, offering comfort at the edge of the wilderness. It is not a great place for satellite tv,paved driveways or big swimming pools with floating bars.
We are on the Atlantic coast of the Cabot Trail, along the Atlantic. There are strong winds, there is abundant wildlife, there is a great beach and a pathway to waterfalls in the highlands, but you have to get here and you’ll occasinally meet other amazing guests, often the recipients of gift certificates that give them FLEXIBILITY IN TERMS of where to stay, when to stay, and what to do when on Cape Breton along the Cabot Trail at Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort.
