Designed by Nova Scotia architect Susan Fitzgerald and interior designer Alexandra Angle who used the natural surroundings as their inspiration, the Lodge utilizes local cedar and timber in a classic yet modern blend.

Incredible Dining And Recreational Activities
Outside your door, if you can pull yourself away from the golf courses, you will find an incredible array of activities including beaches, hiking, biking, fishing, music venues, whale watching, markets, kayaking, and the nearby Glenora Distillery.
Dining options include the formal Panorama Restaurant which serves breakfast and dinner overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the 18th hole of Cabot Links. Using locally-sourced ingredients, dishes here include baked oysters, crab cakes, grilled monkfish, lobster, strip steak, and pan-seared halibut. Offering an all-day menu, the more casual Cabot Bar is a great spot for pre- or post-round drinks and a meal while the Cabot Public House is your go-to spot for live music, great drinks, and delicious food, including their Cape Breton Lobster Boil.
