#1 of 2 Speciality lodging in Lac-Bouchette
Travellers' Choice
A few minutes away from the majestic Lac-St-Jean, on wooden grounds located at Lac-Bouchette, the Ermitage Saint-Antoine is a destination appreciated as much by pilgrims than people on an inner quest or travelers seeking natural beauty and tranquility. Founded in 1907 and animated by the Capuchin's religious order, this national shrine offers great quality logging (cottage, hotel, camping), a restaurant and many more activities and services: guided tour, heritage buildings, museum and works of art, walking trail, the famous Kapatakan (trail) of Our Lady (a 215 kilometers Compostela-style pilgrimage) and so much more. The Ermitage Saint-Antoine a must-see to discover... once more.

The restaurant was clean and airy, good service and interesting variety of food. We enjoyed the soup, tourtière and the veggie burger. The blueberry pie dessert was relatively small and had too much sugar; we expected a more authentic filling, given its popularity in this area. A bit pricey overall but fairly good quality. Good option for a meal, with few alternatives nearby. Nice lakeside views. Ermitage rooms were OK but small, a bit warm even with an open window in cool overnight temperatures. Fairly quiet overall, good place to sleep in a very nice surrounding.

We went there with the whole family last winter for 3 nights in a Chalet. The place is simply magnificent if you want to rest and walk on their great premises. Even though in winter almost everything is closed, the peace of it, the beautiful snowy trails and having the possibility to have mass everyday was great for us. Frere Sylvain received us very warmly and recommended us things to do and see there and nearby. It is a relative close drive away from Zoo Sauvage at Saint Felicien, which is a really great zoo worth to visit.

This property is run by Monks and is a religious site but open to all travellers who just want a place to stay and eat on an overnight trip. Rooms are nifty and comfortable at a very reasonable price. The meals are also excellent and non expensive, with a full menu of meals and wines.

L'Ermitage Saint-Antoine is a Catholic Church retreat. It provides accommodation in dormitories and small rooms, as well as camping area. The centre has a dining room, serving breakfast, lunch and evening supper. There is also a gift shop, church, and monastic centre. All facilities are available to all visitors. The campground is in three areas, one a small sheltered area with space for about 10 units, each site having 3 services; sites are fairly level. The second area is more open and is an extension of the parking area, with sites being part tarmac and part grass, with some sites sloping, each one has water and electricity. The third area is a field setting, with some electricity points and water taps. There is also a sewer dump point. All sites are of a good size for larger units. Showers and washrooms are fairly basic, with only one shower in each section, mens and womens, with free hot water, when they work. They are located away from the campground areas. The grounds of the centre are extensive, and there are numerous walks, some signposted through woodland and by the lake. There are many features of religious significance around the grounds. The reception is for the whole centre and its facilities, and can therefore be busy when there are a lot of visitors. The meals in the dining room are typical hostel cafeteria standard, nothing exciting, but there is a choice. The reception has one computer for free internet access. All staff were helpful and friendly.
