Stay in one of our Magical Small Yurts

Small Mongolian Yurts

What’s a yurt (or ger)?
A yurt or ger is the home of the Mongolian nomads. Its history dates back thousands of years and yurts are still widely in use year round across Mongolia. Our beautiful yurts are made using mostly natural products, hand crafted by a Mongolian family on a principle of fair trade. Gers are sustainable, leaving no footprint and comprise organic material like felt insulation and horse hair ropes. - From Groovy Yurts website

Rated One of Top Three Hotels in Nova Scotia

"Situated on 55 acres, Cabot Shores offers ocean views from its lodge, private chalets and farmhouse. The hotel, which prides itself on eco-tourism, is a place to go for bird-watching, kayaking and canoeing, or simply for peace and quiet."

~ USA Today

"We Can't Wait to Come Back."

Between guided morning meditation, great coffee and breakfast, private hot tubs overlooking the Atlantic, recommendations for stunning local hikes from Barbara, the location and the view, we couldn't have imagined a better experience in Cape Breton.

~ Emily, Halifax

"Highly Recommend Sunrise & Sunsets."

We absolutely loved our time here. If I could offer better than 5 stars I would. The food was outstanding and the same can be said of ALL staff. We stayed in one of the yurts and explored the property, which was also great. I highly recommend sunrise and sunsets.

~ Krista P., Nova Scotia

"Lulled Asleep by the Sounds of the Waves! "

Staying in a yurt with an ocean view was a fun and unique experience - how nice to watch the moon rise over the ocean and be lulled asleep by the sounds of the waves! The gourmet restaurant on site was a pleasant surprise.

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.
