Hosting up to eight guests, you will feel like you’ve come home. The living and dining rooms both overlook the Grand Cascapedia River and still have their original century-old fireplaces, creating a relaxing and cozy atmosphere. The main lodge has four large double bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. One of the lodge’s most enjoyed features is the wrap-around porch and cigar-friendly screened deck that offers you a spectacular view of the river, where countless fishing tales have been told.
