The Vertendre is a private & sustainable estate that rents and sells modern chalets / Shelters with contemporary design. It's 1000 acres of mature forest that invite you to rejuvenate yourself, by outdoor activities or the art of idleness. Located on the southwest side of Mount Orford, our Orfie cottages are eco-energetic, spacious and fully equipped. Our Shelters, 100% energy-independent lofts, offer a unique adventure by walking to get there and experimenting some kind of "glamping". Connect with the energy and beauty of nature!

Had a great time on our short stay in our ZooBox. All the necessities were provided and appreciated that it wasn't a compost toilet. A couple of small repairs were needed, though nothing that affected our enjoyment of the space. Water is drinkable and tasted fine. Would have appreciated a little more hot water, though it did make the end of the shower very invigorating. It was wonderful waking up to a forest view and hearing the frogs calling. We had a great time hiking, and the trails were very well maintained.

If you need to hide in nature but do not need to rough it, this is it. Le Vertendre is a good place to disconnect and evade. Embrace simple pleasures with cozy happiness in a Zoo "Hygge" Box. I shall return for a retreat in winter.

Hello, Nice weekend with my sister in a Zoobox at Le Vertendre. I was a little bit afraid at first when I heard the concept. But when I arrived at the place it was wonderful. You feel alone and safe you can walk in the nature, even if you are a bad orientation^^ just have to follow the marks on the tree and see the beauty of the landscape 💗 Amazing experience everyone should try it! You are not going to be the same after you passage to Le Vertendre.

We stayed in Zoobox 67 and had a great view of the water. There is a dock close by and you can see people on canoes/kayaks. Our stay was great, the layout of the zoobox is perfect for 2 people. Only downfall was that our bath was clogged when we first arrived and even after it was fixed it took a really long time to drain the water therefore you can’t necessarily fill to even half the tub or else you’ll be draining the water for about 40-50 mins with a loud rumbling sound and cannot leave since you have to turn off the drain. But I would still recommend this place as it was beautiful and peaceful and the hike to Mont Sylvio Lacharité was nice as well. Would like to return and visit another zoobox eventually :)

Raise your hands if you are a traveler who is interested in eco-tourism, self-sustainability, and green travel! This spectacular gem which is located on the forgotten side of Mont-Orford, in Eastman Quebec (about 1.5 hours from Montreal), was designed to stimulate any individual with its creative and passionate approach to sustaining a GREEN Quebec! Believe it or not, this Zoobox is 100% self-sufficient! A perfect getaway submerged in nature. The zooboxes are equipped with everything you need - a king sized bed suspended from the ceiling, outside shower & bathtub on wheels, fully equipped kitchen, solar panels, and gorgeous folding glass doors. The staff was super friendly, the zooboxes where very clean, and also well spaced out from each other to give you that privacy. We HIGHLY recommend these unique accommodations and we would definitely go back again.

We went up there twice, once as a couple in the spring and then again with our kids in the winter. Every time was absolutely perfect. Takes you back to the basics and find time to talk to each other and listen. The rock climbing wall is amazing the kids obviously love it, but also the mezzanine beds is a great place for the kids to escape to when playing, makes you realize how little space we all really need! Customer service is ALWAYS the best, they are present, available and all around great! Thank you !!

It was a beautiful place to be with family. Plenty of activities for kids and adults if you love the outdoors. If you like taking picture it’s a nice location to have a unique shots early in the morning. Our house came with everything from internet to grill. The lady at the office was really kind and respectful. I will be coming back again. Cheers
