Preeminent Glamping in Nova Scotia: Cabot Shores

In 2019, Cabot Shores was touted as one of the “coolest places to go glamping in Canada” by Chatelaine Magazine. We were also recently featured in a lengthy exposé on Canada.com. Glamping, along with sustainability, wellness, and exploration, has always been an integral part of our DNA. We’re continuously enhancing the guest experience to not only align with our hospitable core values but also the latest trends in the travel industry. Glamping in Nova Scotia is in the midst of a meteoric rise in popularity, especially for those with a penchant for adventure and self-reflection. And we couldn’t think of a better location for a well-deserved, long-awaited break from the city than right here along the serene Cabot Trail.

Glamping in Nova Scotia: Yurts, Domes, Chalets, and More!

If you were to search for “glamping near me” unconsciously, you just might stumble upon our particularly rejuvenating slice of peaceful Cape Breton Island. Cabot Shores offers everything from hard-to-find dome camping to a night in a traditional farmhouse—glamping in Nova Scotia has never been this sophisticated nor sundry. Most travellers are instinctively drawn to our treetop glamping domes, which are strategically placed at various picturesque locations around our thriving, homegrown apple orchard. The yurts, meanwhile, vary in size and scope as some feature a wood stove while others are placed along the edge of Church Pond, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. All in all, we have seven distinct accommodation types, most of which complement an extended weekend of glamping with family or friends.

Adventure, Exploration, and Reflection

But, of course, glamping in Nova Scotia wouldn’t be the same without several days of adventure, exploration, and reflection amid towering sugar maples, dense thickets, curious wildlife, and the Atlantic’s patient waves. There’s no offseason for adventure at Cabot Shores. Thus, the surrounding wilderness fosters everything from full-day snowshoeing excursions to multi-day wellness retreats. During the warmest months, guests are free to paddle along Indian Brook with occasional moose sightings, explore Church Pond and its hidden coves, take the Eagle Feather Ferry (a flat bottom) out to the beach where you can sunbathe on the 2,000-foot beach, and swim in the Atlantic and then rinse off in the freshwater of Church Pond. Make sure to keep an ear to the ground for upcoming events, retreats, and concert series’.

Organic Gourmet Cuisine

Glamping in Nova Scotia is scientifically proven to improve mental and physical health as it does not entail as much preparation and hands-on labour as a traditional camping experience. And it’s important to note that all of our unique Cabot Trail accommodations are just a short stroll from a gourmet meal inside Cabot Shores Bistro. While glamping in Cape Breton (or anywhere else, for that matter), it’s vital to not only soothe the mind and free the spirit but also to provide your body with fresh, organic nutrition. The Bistro’s skilled, worldly culinary team utilizes homegrown produce, local ingredients, and health-conscious approaches. They can accommodate any and all dietary restrictions or requests.

If a glamping trip to beautiful Cabot Shores sounds exceedingly enticing, please give us a call today at 1-866-929-2584. You can also check availability online at any time.

My boyfriend and I came here on a whim for lunch while in the area. What a pleasant surprise! Loved the unique atmosphere and amazing, friendly people. Could have very well have been the best salmon I have ever eaten. Everything was cooked to perfection. Fresh and tasty. Hats off to the chef. We also had the mussels... huge portion and delicious. We took a walk about the property, one of a kind cabins/domes to stay in.. most of which, if not all had their own hot tub. Even a sauna by the water. We would definitely highly recommend eating here at the bistro even if you are not staying over night. Everyone is lovely.. they even offered to email us the salmon recipe because we loved it so much. My only suggestion to owners would be to get better signage on the roadway, so visitors can find you easier. We passed the place twice before actually finding it. I think if there were two more signs a little up the rd on either side, more people may be able to come visit this hidden little gem. Thanks so much for a great lunch and top-notch service.

Stayed at Cabot shores from October 7th-13th was an unforgettable experience. Stayed in a yurt and very spacious and comfortable. The location along the sea was gorgeous and could hop over to the beach whenever. Kayaked two of those days and could see beaver domes while doing so. Would highly try the food as well very accommodating to all dietary requirements. Recommend the chickpea massala very nice meal! Friendly staff and good accommodation. 5/5

Stopped for lunch and ordered the spaghetti bolognese. Very hearty and lots of meat. A nice satisfying meal. One surprise was to see a mandatory 10% gratuity when paying the bill. Who does this for a party of less than 5?

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.
