Comfort beyond your wildest dreams.
The site is enchanting! The inn is built on a promontory overlooking Lac Saint-Pierre, offering an exceptional view of this massive lake anchored in the Saint-Lawrence River. In fact, this is where the Attikamegs First Nation used to make their summer camp before the arrival of the French.
In 1920, developers began building a vacation resort on this very spot. They named it Tomaqua Beach, in honour of the last Amerindian who had lived in the village. After many years of activity, Tomaqua Beach closed its doors in 1960 and was abandoned until 1986, when Gisèle Poliquin's father purchased the land and the old buildings still standing on it.
In 1987, Gisèle and her husband Jean Guy Morissette began clearing this land, which hadn't been touched in years, and planned to build an inn that emphasized both its grandeur and its harmony with the natural landscape.
Since they had been vacationing in Lac Saint-Pierre for years and knowing that the landscape was one of the main attractions for tourists, the couple naturally decided to call their inn, Auberge du Lac Saint-Pierre.
What is unique about us
Depending on the season, bird watching is a very popular activity. No surprise then that Lac Saint-Pierre has been named a UNESCO world biosphere reserve! Great blue herons, ducks, Canada geese and snow geese often congregate by the inn, putting on quite the performance for our guests.
