The Chic-chocs Mountain Lodge is located in the heart of an exquisite a wildlife preserve approximately 315 miles north east of Quebec City. Three years old, it consists of an modern18 room building with lounge, dining room, sauna, and outdoor hot tub. It is located at the end of a 20 mile gravel road, and you reach it after a 90 minute ride through the preserve in a small but comfortable bus. In winter, when the snow is several feet deep, the last five miles of the trip are made in a special "snow cat." You receive an introduction to the wildlife preserve during the trip, and when you arrive, you are warmly met by the staff and shown to your simple but beautiful rooms, all of which contain full baths and feature fine views. No air conditioning is provided or required.
As we went in August, activities at the Lodge centered around hiking, mountain biking, kayaking, and fishing. All equipment is provided (bring bike helmets), and activities are guided according to your abilities and wishes. While we don't ski, the Lodge is in its glory in winter, and we'd love to return then. The guides are knowledgeable, friendly, and you eat your meals with them and other members of the staff.
The Lodge is located in the heart of French-speaking Quebec in the Gaspe Peninsula. We were the only Anglophones (we both have a smattering a high and college French and looked forward to the opportunity to try it out. Many of the the staff are bilingual and all were extremely gracious to us in this regard.
Simply put, the experience was superb. The food, prepared by resident chefs, reflects a high-end approach to Quebecois cooking (we had duck, quail, steak, etc.) and the bar supports an excellent international list of wines and beers (these are not included in the otherwise all-inclusive daily rate). Vegetarians are cheerfully and deliciously accommodated. After a hard day outside, it was a delight to return to delicious meals, good conversation, and an early bedtime.
