Quebec ‘micro refuge’ Grand Pic is a tiny cabin with big views

A remote retreat that’s expertly crafted

Guests will need to strap on their snowshoes to get to this remote ‘micro refuge’ on the tip of Quebec’s Pointe de la Truite.

Local studio L’Abri designed the tiny home in collaboration with interior design firm Vives St-Laurent, which is tucked into a stand of trees close to the water. The timber-panelled cabin has enough space to sleep four, as well as an extra summer mattress on the terrace for warm nights.

Grand Pic is positioned for guests to immerse themselves in nature, including a due west bay window for optimum sunset watching. In the winter, visitors will need to use skis, snowshoes or sleds to get there.

The surrounding Poisson-Blanc Regional Park offers a long list of activities, including fishing, hiking and rock climbing. Cabin guests can also rent a canoe to explore the nearby lake, before heading back to Grand Pic – available from $175 per night – to soak up the warmth from the wood-burning stove, and cook up dinner over the campfire.
