We had a great time at Cabot Shores. Paul and his staff were very accommodating to keep us, as a group of 10, all together so we could enjoy our time. The chalets were very clean, well equipped and spacious! I've only had lobster a few times in my life and decided to have it as one of my dinners here at the lodge. It was the best I ever had. They even cracked it to make it easier for us. It was a great place to unwind from our Bluenose Marathon run and was close to other attractions. The Cabot trail was minutes away!
"Thank you very much!"

We crossed the cable ferry at St. Anne's and headed toward Ingonish. Wanted to see the Keltic Lodge. The lodge was awesome and the drive up and back was beautiful. Good road but some potholes in one stretch. We came in on a cruise and rented a car and had plenty of time to enjoy the scenic drive.

The Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island is a great scenic drive with many opportunities for short, medium and longer hikes. I made the drive on a gorgeous day in mid-May, which is before the start of the main tourist season, which meant that many of the shops, restaurants, etc. were not yet open for the season. The advantage was minimal traffic and a pleasant driving experience.

The whole loop can easily be driven in a relaxing 8 hours with sufficient time for the dozen or more photo opps. Plan for two days if you can. Fuel up before leaving!

Several great dining places and accommodations along the way. Very good road (despite winter wear and tear). 4' snow up top ...in May.

this is a fantastic drive whether you're alone or with friends/family. The scenery is beautiful in the highlands and the views are even better when you can see the Atlantic. Would recommend doing the drive counter-clockwise. There are also plenty of great restaurants along the trail to stop at if you get hungry and the small towns that you pass through are just amazing. There are also plenty of lookouts where you can stop and take pictures.
