Beginning August 9, Canada plans to reopen its border to fully vaccinated American visitors. Cabot Cape Breton, the award-winning golf resort surrounded by the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and the Atlantic Ocean on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, is the perfect location for a fun adventure that the entire family can enjoy.

Cape Breton Island offers incredible opportunities to explore Gaelic culture and history while staying in North America. The resort, ranked as one of the top resorts in Canada from Travel + Leisure and top ranked among the World’s 100 Greatest courses from Golf Digest, is booking up fast (summer 2022 availability is already more than 80% booked).

Exciting resort enhancements include the opening of the highly anticipated third golf course, new food and beverage partners, curated outdoor experiences, and new real estate offerings. All guestrooms feature ocean views with nightly rates starting at CA$330. The resort will be open until late October. 

Real Estate

Real estate at Cabot Cape Breton has been immensely popular following the pandemic. The Residences at Cabot Cliffs, a collection of eight seaside residences, sold out in February 2021 and the recently unveiled 12 two- and three-bedroom Hillside Homes sold out within days. The next real estate, seven Dunes Cottages in Phase 1 with pricing starting around $1.65M, was released this week. All seven were spoken for within six hours of the launch.


The Nest, a new par-3, 10-hole short course from Rod Whitman and Dave Axland is now officially open! The Nest features all of the hallmarks of links golf found at Cabot’s full-length courses with firm, fast conditions accompanied by extraordinary ocean views. Starting in late August, night golf will be available.

Food & Beverage

Cabot has partnered with local Breton Brewing and Nova Scotia Spirit Co. to serve specialty cocktails and mocktails on the courses and at Cabot bars. Private tastings and pairings are also available, featuring flights from Breton Brewing and the Glenora Distillery, home of Canada’s only malt whiskey. For a truly memorable experience, book a beachside lobster ceilidh with a private chef, live, authentic Gaelic music, fresh seafood, and sunset bonfire.

Outdoor Adventures

The resort is located on over a mile of sandy beach near the world-renowned Cabot Trail, a bucket list experience showcasing 186 miles of the most spectacular scenery in all of Canada. Area activities include hiking, biking, kayaking, and heli-fly fishing on the Margaree River. Guests can now book a private day trip adventure with Cabot’s new Sable Island Experience. Guests travel via helicopter to this storied, isolated island, where wild horses roam free and few people are privileged to go each year. The package includes a two-night stay, a picnic lunch, and guided tour on the island and two rounds of golf at Cabot Cape Breton.
