Stay in our Whiffs Lodge

Cozy room with en-suite bathroom.

This rustic lodge serves as the focal point of Cabot Shores. Home to our fabulous cuisine and dining room, the lodge also offers a wonderful place for our guests to gather around the fire, play games, peruse our library, enjoy our games room or join in an impromptu jam. The lodge also offers several rooms with en-suites that can accommodate two to five people.

 Our room in the lodge on night one was clean and comfortable. Dinner at the Bistro was fantastic. Great service and food. Staff were extremely friendly and accommodating.

"Pleasantly Surprised"

Cute and clean with great organic shampoos and soaps and nice lush towels. Our view was gorgeous. We could see the fishing boats at night and in the morning we had a gorgeous sunrise.

"Exceptional Experience"

Just spent a few idyllic days at Cabot Shores in Cape Breton. This is a great place for anyone, but especially for those who value environmental friendliness and appreciate having vegetarian options on the menu. We stayed in a spacious and comfortable room in the lodge
