Sacacomie Lodge is a beautiful property, nestled in the heart of the forest and one of our favorite places to unwind in Quebec. This huge cabin made of wooden logs, with deer horns on the wall, is an invitation to experience life as if you were living in a Canadian postcard. Located in Saint-Alexis-des-Monts, it’s really easy to access it by car from Montreal (2h) or from Quebec (2h30). A few miles away from the Mastigouche Wildlife Sanctuary and from the Mauricie National Park, Sacacomie is an El Dorado for nature lovers.
Stay. The personnel welcomes guests with genuine Quebec hospitality and the authentic decor delivers a true Canadian experience. The rooms are bucolic and absolutely charming and most of them offer a magnificent view of the Sacacomie Lake. They look quite simple, which allows you to feel instantly at home. The Junior Suites include their own hot tubs, which you will highly appreciate when coming back from a long hike in the woods. If you stay in a standard room, you could still take advantage of the splendid spa open on the great outdoor.
Eat. The hotel being located deep down into the forest, we recommend you to book the full board or the half board at the very least. The restaurant honors local products and the dining room unveils a spectacular view of the lake. The menu offers a nice glimpse of the local cuisine: bison carpaccio, elk medallion, maple syrup specialties, and ice wine… Everything is exquisite!
See. The Sacacomie Lodge is also a prime location to discover the area’s nature reserves and national parks. If you prefer to stay on site, you could enjoy the numerous activities offered by the hotel in any season. In the summertime, rabaska excursions fur trader style, speckled trout fishing, bear & beaver viewing on an all-terrain vehicle with your own trapper guide, seaplane flights… In winter, snowshoeing outings, cross-country skiing, ice skating on the frozen lake, snowmobiling & dog sledding excursions, ice driving, ski plane… After a few days, the immersion is complete.
