On site

Our mission is to offer curated stays on our 80 acres of forest. We aim to keep the land as untouched as possible. Our main trail is an old logging trail which leads up to beautiful Lac du Castor. It’s a one kilometre hike over mountainous terrain to get to the lake. Please be warned that there are some more abrupt uphill sections, so it can take between 20 to 30 minutes to reach the lake. There are lots of lovely spots to stop and rest along the way. 


In summer, it is possible to hike along the trails on the property, or lounge on the dock and take a refreshing swim in the waters of lac du Castor.


Winter offers the perfect opportunity to explore the land by snowshoe. Two sets of snowshoes are available per site, and there are multiple trails to choose from.
