Mind, Body, and Soul | A Wellness Retreat in Nova Scotia

To say the last few months have been stressful certainly seems like an understatement. Current events and the demands of our modern lifestyles can sometimes leave us feeling bogged down and disconnected from our environment. The trapeze act we call life is no easy task, so it’s understandable why so many people are yearning for ways to revitalize their mind, body, and spirit. Many doctors and therapists agree that sometimes the most effective solution for a restless psyche is finding a relaxing environment amid nature’s bounty to focus on your physical and mental vitality. Whether it be a heartening hike through a lush forest or a mindful meditation, Cabot Shores on Cape Breton Island beckons you to partake in a wellness retreat in beautiful Nova Scotia. 

Unrivalled Tranquility | Cape Breton Island

Surrounded by dense woodlands and sparkling waterways, few wilderness resorts can match the abundance of tranquillity found at Cabot Shores. Our beloved isle is a mystical wonder where recreation and relaxation merge to provide an environment that graciously makes itself available for a blissful wellness retreat. Cabot Shores will offer a rejuvenating experience with such an ambiance thanks to outstanding outdoor recreation opportunities, nutritious meals, and pristine backcountry. Below we’ll share some of the ways you can improve your wellness on Cape Breton Island. 

  • Morning meditation and Qi Gong sessions will improve your physical mobility and circulation to increase your overall well-being. Sessions will last 30-minutes and are included in your customized package. 
  • Our barrel sauna is an all-natural way to raise your metabolism and sweat out toxins and muscle tension. The elevated temperature can also help decrease blood pressure while increasing circulation. 
  • Cedar soaker hot tubs will provide many of the same benefits as a sauna, no matter what the weather is doing. 
  • Wholesome and nutritious cuisine is a cornerstone of any proper wellness retreat. Not only will we provide delectable entrees, but you’ll also gain a better idea of what kinds of healthy foods you can prepare at home if that’s something with which you’ve been struggling.
  • Fresh air and proximity to water can go a long way in revitalizing your bodily systems.
  • Guided forest walks and hikes not only allow you to appreciate Mother Nature, but it’s also a low-impact form of exercise that doesn’t require much exertion.

Nova Scotia Spa Resort and Camping on Cape Breton Island

A wellness retreat doesn’t have to be at a fancy day spa in the city. On the contrary, we believe you’ll achieve more balance by immersing yourself in the fresh air, abundant greenery, and world-class hospitality. We believe that everyone should experience nature’s bounty, so that’s why we pride ourselves on providing affordable lodging options that won’t break the bank. Besides the wellness retreat activities mentioned above, we also kayak and stand-up paddleboard rentals, swimming, and a chance to disconnect from social media and other digital distractions.

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.
