Stay in one of our Geodesic Domes

Sleep in the sky.

We call it Treetop Village - You will call it amazing. Located in our apple orchard, each geodesic dome rests on an elevated deck that gives you a great view of the Atlantic, Bird Islands and Cape Breton Highland Hills. You can choose the Luna Dome and the larger Apple Dome which are connected and great for families. There is also the Eagle Dome and our newly built Blue Heron Dome. These off grid structures are NOT yet pet friendly.

"A tree top village with Smurf-like domes rising out of the forest and Mongolian yurts in Nova Scotia? Indeed! Cabot Shores on Cape Breton Island entices you to embrace your nomadic roots and connect to nature. You can stay in one of the colourful yurts or opt for a geodesic dome raised up off the ground. Take in the lake views and the Atlantic waters on both sides, while the smell of cedar fills the air. Be sure to have your camera ready to snap a moose photo (they love it there)."

"...secluded from the rest of the world."

From the inside of the dome we were able to star gaze and feel spectacularly secluded from the rest of the world.

"...get away from the hustle & bustle"

We really loved our stay at the Eagle Dome. It was such a great place to get away from the hustle & bustle of life. We loved the dome itself and found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.
