Cabot Trail Lodge on Cape Breton Island


Home Description

Cozy Lodge with Bistro, Live Music & Beach Access

Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort is located at the gateway to the world renowned Cabot Trail near Englishtown, Nova Scotia. Rated as the best island off of North America (by Travel and Leisure), Cape Breton is known for warm Maritime hospitality, a rich culture and incredible natural beauty.

Built in 2004, Cabot Shores offers 4 season accommodations, with some rooms pet friendly. It is a great place for getaways, vacations, wellness retreats, family reunions, small weddings and other special events, and a lot of fun and adventure.

Complete with the GoBistro (specializing in Nova Scotia seafood, fire-cooked meats, vegetarian and vegan fare), the Lodge also has a friendly Great Room with a cozy stone hearth where friends, family, colleagues and musicians will enjoy relaxing together. A stage and an assortment of instruments are available - we highly encourage music jams! Live music is also available on occasion with regular ceilidhs (a traditional Gaelic social gathering, which usually involves playing Gaelic folk music and dancing) taking place only 3km away. Cabot Shores is also home to the Cabot Trail Acoustic Series and Festival.

Cabot Shores guests receive itinerary guides and tips on travelling the Cabot Trail and throughout Cape Breton: information on wildlife, hikes and local events. Located in what is known as the 'artisans loop', you are a short distance from many local artist galleries, like iron works, glass blowing, leather works, jewelry, pottery and more. Guests are also near the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, the Alexander Graham Bell museum, the Gaelic College and many other cultural and outdoor experiences and adventures.

All Lodge rooms come with queen or double beds and private bathrooms. In rooms 5 & 6 downstairs, pets are allowed. They also have a private entrance from outside and a small deck.
