The Sacacomie is an enormous log chalet that overlooks the lake and forest surrounding it. This magnificent building is in a park of several acres criss-crossed with many paths, some running past various little refuges (yurts, tents, sugar houses, chalets, etc.) dotted here and there and where a coffee break is arranged during organised activities. A friendly moment around a fire that allows you to get to know other guests and maybe even make a few new friends.
The reception opens onto a large stone fireplace, some sofas and, on the wall, unsurprisingly, an enormous bearskin you can't help but wanting to stroke? The decor is sedate: comfort and nature are the watchwords of your stay here!
A stable block with 11 horses offers family trekking (children from the age of 9) into the heart of the forest. Summer treks also provide the opportunity to see beavers...and bears! A few farm animals (young goats, geese, rabbits and chickens) also live at the stables with the horses.
The lake offers many leisure activities both in summer and winter. Skating and seaplaning are among the winter activities offered, whereas in summer you can also go canoeing and swimming, as well as seaplaning.
Under the reception, a television room with two sofas allows early birds to support their teams when they are playing. Nearby, a pool table and table football are ideally located to entertain both children and bigger kids on rainy days.
A little further along, a small spa, which doesn't quite match up to the standard of service provided by the hotel, impatiently awaits its successor (planned for October 2008)
This hotel gives you the opportunity to do more or less the same activities as other hotels, but the equipment certainly isn't the same: the dog sled is handmade by local craftsmen, and you can take it out as a family with no fear of being cold. Sitting comfortably and feeling pampered, guests cannot fail to enjoy these often chilly activities.
A small shop near the reception sells very chic items such as bearskin slippers, rabbit skin bags, and beaver fur hats. Keep your credit card nice and warm!
