Dog-Friendly Accommodations at Cabot Shores

Cabot Shores welcomes your dogs!

At Cabot Shores we consider dogs part of the family! It’s not really a vacation when you leave a member of the family behind, so we provide dog-friendly accommodations with room to roam. We have 55 acres to explore, so you’ve got a lot of ground to cover! Your dog(s) can swim in the Indian Brook river, Church Pond, and the Atlantic Ocean while staying at Cabot Shores – and even go out in the canoe or kayak with you, if they are so-inclined! Check out our photos above of dogs in kayaks. Cabot Shores also has a scenic system of trails and a never-ending supply of fresh air.

Dog-Friendly Accommodations

We have several accommodations that are dog-friendly, including:

Mongolian Yurts are dog-friendly with the exception of Lil’ Red and the Sky Yurt. These yurts are available year-round and are insulated with a canvas and felt covering and bound with the traditional use of horse hair rope. Each yurt is handmade and ornately painted by families who live in Mongolia and who have lived in yurts for many generations. Yurts offer a very interesting and unique outdoor experience and have splendid views of our small lake and the Atlantic Ocean. To know more about staying in a yurt during cold weather, visit our FAQ blog. To see more photos or book a yurt, click here.

The fresh smelling and roomy Cedar Yurt is a special experience much different from the Mongolian style yurts. With a double bed and two single bunk beds, a small couch, wood stove and table and chairs, this yurt is capable of hosting up to 4-5 people comfortably. A cedar soaking hot tub is located right outside the door. To know more about staying in a yurt during cold weather, visit our FAQ blog. To see more photos or book a yurt, click here.

Lodge Rooms 5, 6a/6b (which is a suite that can be rented together or separately) are also dog-friendly and each feature their own private outdoor entrance. Located on ground level, stepping out of these lodge rooms leads you to our trails through the apple orchard, to the beach, or down by the brook. To see more photos or book a lodge room, click here.

All four of our Chalets are also dog-friendly and are a lot like being at home. With two floors, full kitchen and two bathrooms, these rustic chalets can accommodate between 6-8 people. There is a large hot tub and BBQ that is available for rent (subject to availability). For more photos, information, or to book a chalet, click here.

Lastly is the Breton Cove farmhouse located approximately 12km from Cabot Shores on the Cabot Trail. Capable of comfortably accommodating up to 12 people, the farmhouse has its own hiking trail bordering the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and is rich in wild flowers, wildlife and is very private.

Dog Policy

There is a maximum of 2 dogs per accommodation unless special arrangements have been made. The fee is $15 per day, per dog.

Dogs must be on a leash in the general vicinity of Cabot Shores. Please supervise your dogs at accommodations, campsites or on our trails as all our guests may have varying levels of comfort around dogs. Dogs are not allowed in our Bistro / main room of the lodge.

Dogs must be kept off of furniture and beds.

Please pick up after your dog! Poop bags available at reception.

Dog owners will be held responsible and a recovery fee will be applied if any damage is caused by their pets.

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.
