Luxury Log Cabins Sheltered by Lush Wilderness
Blueberry Lake Resort’s 2,340-square-foot Papineau chalets have floor-to-ceiling cathedral windows looking out on 300 acres of wooded scenery in the Mont-Tremblant region of Quebec. The property is lined with hiking trails.
On the main floor of each chalet, there’s a kitchen and a living room with a stone fireplace; the main floor, second floor, and basement are where you’ll find the bedrooms. Each chalet has a game room with a pool, ping-pong, or foosball table, as well as a private hot tub. Outside, there’s an expansive balcony featuring a barbecue pit and a 270-degree view of the area.
During your stay, you can keep the family occupied with a wide variety of activities. Each winter, the resort converts a tennis court into an ice-skating rink, and the 15 miles of trails surrounding Blueberry Lake become a haven for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. Afterward, you can unwind by the fireplace in your chalet or head to the onsite spa. This getaway includes four $50 vouchers that you can use toward massage services.
Labelle and Mont-Tremblant, Quebec: Canoeing and Hiking amid the Laurentian Mountains
Labelle and Mont-Tremblant are havens for outdoor activity—located in the Laurentian Mountains, they’re filled with national parks and rivers. In the winter, the area is best known as a skiing destination, but in warmer weather, many visitors gravitate toward fishing and golf. Mont-Tremblant National Park has some 400 lakes and six rivers; it’s worth hopping on a kayak or canoe for a group tour of the scenic Red River. To experience the region’s natural beauty without leaving dry land, take a ride in a horse-drawn cabriolet through Labelle, Mont-Tremblant, or another quaint mountainside village.
