~Celebrate the Fall Yoga Retreat~

We met so many wonderful people during the Celebrate the Fall Yoga Retreat with teachers Blaine Carter (Embrace the Sun Yoga) and Josette Coulter (The Yoga Tree)! Here’s what one participant had to say about the retreat:

“This was my first yoga retreat but not my last! Josette and Blaine were excellent facilitators! The reatreat gave me an opportunity to take a break from lifes distractions! A safe environment where we can step back and see our true selves, taking time to watch the thoughts and behaviors that hold us back, and clear away our mental and spiritual clutter. This is what this retreat did for me!! Thank you Josette, Blaine and the wonderful staff at Cabot Shores!”

~Furry Friend Sightings~

There is no shortage of furry friends at Cabot Shores! Here are a couple cuties that showed up this fall. On the left is a young male moose who was spotted in our orchard looking for apples. On the right is a squirrel with a “magnificent beard”, most likely looking for winter nesting material.

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.
