Indian Brook chalet description

Welcome to the warmth and rustic luxury of Cabot Shores, four-star Adventure and Retreat Center. Dr. Paul and his friendly staff will ensure that you enjoy the finest comfort for a rare experience with your friends and family.

Cabot Shores is a 55 acre private sanctuary, with all modern conveniences, breathtaking views, and a 2000 ft private beachfront. Nestled in this peaceful setting that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, you will discover a magnificent lodge, 4 chalets, and a selection of alternative shelters (yurts, tepee, and wigwams).

Whiff's Lodge has 7 bedrooms each with air conditioning, 4-piece private baths, and queen or double beds. Our cafe-restaurant offers fine dining and breathtaking views of the Bird Islands and their famous puffins. One of our suites is Barrier-Free.

In our chalets, you will enjoy the freshness of the native wood, the original art, the the openness of the kitchen, dining and sitting area. Each chalet is over 950 sq ft and can accommodate 2 to 8

They all have 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen (fridge, stove, microwave, and utensils), ceiling fan, electric heat, and a TV and VCR. Relax and take in the spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean from the upstairs living room or while sitting on your covered deck.

Our alternative shelters are a unique opportunity to experience a different style of lodging in a beautiful wild setting. According to the culture of your choice you can spend a comfortable night in a yurt, a wigwam all big enough to host up to 6 people.

We also provide a variety of guest facilities including outdoor barbecues, shower facilities and coin laundry.

There is a restaurant serving full breakfast and dinner, with lunches packed by as well.

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: Your costs are Barbara and Dr. Paul. Barbara is an accomplished gardener, acupuncturist and vegetarian chef...Dr. Paul is a former 'road warrior', teacher and psychologist, who now considers his doctorate in 'adventure travel'. He loves to hike with Barbara and their dog Cosmo, to yolo board and to jam on the blues harmonica and trombone.

                          Why the Owner Chose Indian Brook:
                          We've traveled the world and found Cape Breton to be a unique, unspoiled and sacred place. We bought and renovated a farmhouse at Breton Cove in 2000 and then saw the property at Indian Brook where we saw the opportunity to build a special Resort and Retreat Centre, one where people can easily discover and create their favorite adventures. The natural beauty of Cape Breton, the warmth and hospitality among its 3 main cultures all drew us to create Cabot Shores, where great stories and memories are guaranteed.
