As a Christmas gift to one another, Scott and I planned a winter getaway to Cabot Shores. We found CS while browsing the internet last year before Valentine's Day. Fortunately, we were able to book a night this year in January. We new it was going to be one of the coldest winter nights but we didn't let that hold...

I was mostly happy with staying at Cabot Shores, but I had a couple gripes that may or may only be a personal opinion. I stayed in October when the weather was very wet and a little chilly - This may or may not affect my review. The yurts were very cool, fun to stay in. The lodge had decent...

From the moment we pulled up to Cabot Shores, we knew we were in for a unique and fun adventure. After a long trek in a blizzard from the Annapolis Valley with my handsome boyfriend and 11-month pup, we couldn’t have asked for a more comforting welcome. We were greeted with big smiles from the main lodge, and then brought...

Wanting a bit of a different March Break experience, we sure found it in a cozy cedar yurt at Cabot Shores. We were spoiled with a honeymoon package that included meals, wine, mediation time and the use of a very fun outdoor Japanese style hot tub.

I love this place. Everything about this place screams Nova Scotia. I stayed in the red yurt, which was an amazing experience. I never thought I would be so cozy in a wooden hut wrapped in canvas.

“We stayed in the forest yurt, which is a bit farther away from the main lodge and therefore offered a bit more privacy.”

“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! ”
