I have never felt so recharged as I did with only one night at Cabot Shores! It is rare for some people to consider a winter getaway, but I have to say that this was the most wonderful vacation - and it was only 40 minutes from our home!

I stayed in the forest yurt, a private, peaceful, Mongolian style tent that was both rustic and luxurious. Days were spent hiking in the Highlands, while nights were spent stargazing from...

It was our first family winter camping adventure and...

The beautiful chalets were fully equipped, clean and comfortable. We took full advantage of the hot tub, did a day trip up the Cabot Trail, cooked big dinners in...

This was a great spot to spend some time with my new husband :) The food and staff were amazing! The staff were very accommodating gave us a honeymoon experience that I don't think we could have received anywhere else. We really enjoyed out time at Cabot Shores and loo forward to returning :)

It was an amazing stay, beautiful scenic view, cozy, a lot of activities. The cedar yurt was absolutely beautiful and comfortable. The food was one of our favourites.

“Cell phones don't have service/wifi in the rooms, which was perfect for us! It truly allows you to connect with nature and not just sit on your phone. There is service and wifi in the lodge, if you need to work! ”
