The Cardinal

Peace by the water

The Cardinal is a cabin located on the eastern shore of Pointe de la Truite. His minimalist design and bright atmosphere will charm outdoor enthusiasts. It has private access to the Poisson Blanc reservoir just a few meters from the building, and an outdoor living area with benches, a fireplace and a picnic table. The Cardinal is designed to accommodate a maximum of 4 people (1 queen bed and 1 double bed), in summer and winter.

The Cardinal is only accessible by foot or snowshoe. To get there in the summer, you can use one of our transport carts, in the winter, one of our sleds. You can also take advantage of the equipment and boat rental center at the reception pavilion for your daily activities. The cabin is located less than 300 meters from the reception pavilion and the parking lot (4 minutes by foot). It is energy self-sufficient; its lighting is powered by solar energy. It does not have a traditional electrical outlet, only USB ports.
