Choose Auberge Le Baluchon for its beautiful natural surroundings... and let us spoil you!
The Baluchon Ecology-Outdoors Concept was created in 1982 by seven students, inspired by the leadership and vision of Louis Lessard, a biology student, and Yves Savard, a graphic design student. But Le Baluchon only really got going in December 1982, when Hydro-Québec ceded its commercial rights to the old Damphousse Mill. At about the same time, three other key figures in the development of this exceptional resort joined the team: Céline Lessard, Gilles Lessard and Jean Marc Gauthier.
With such considerable support, the corporation was able to launch the idea of establishing a multi-purpose tourist resort on this site. Over the years, Le Baluchon has learned to stand out from the rest, earning many prizes and awards along the way.
The site was even used to film the mini-series "Marguerite Volant", broadcast in 1996.
Recognized as being an exceptional high-end resort, the Baluchon concept is centred on the guest experience.
