La Malbaie, Canada
Nestled on 2700 square feet with exceptional views of the St-Lawrence River, this stunning three-bedroom mountain lodge is a unique family getaway! You’ll be met with magnificent scenery no matter when you decide to visit, whether you’re taking in the mist of autumn mornings or enchanting snowflakes as they drift down from the sky. Just minutes away from the village center of charming La Malbaie, you’ll love the classic, yet exceptional feel of this lodge.
As you step inside the home, you’ll be struck by the originality of the design, an open-concept ground floor that is accentuated by cathedral-like ceilings that rise to soaring heights. The constant presence of timber, oak beams, and large windows bring an exceptional brightness to the house, cheering you up as soon as you enter. The alpine elegance of the living room exudes from every corner – you’ll love spending leisurely evenings around the impressive four-sided fireplace, keeping warm on a cold winter’s night. To keep you extra toasty, there are also heated floors throughout, as well as a sauna.
The high, vaulted ceilings of the home continue on into the kitchen, accentuating the feeling of grandeur already present. Focusing on a center island, this gourmet space is large and airy, allowing multiple hands to assist in the kitchen when it’s dinnertime. Let the master chef of the group take advantage of state of the art appliances and coffee machines to whip up something delicious that everyone can enjoy. You’ll love dining underneath the glittering chandelier that hangs over the dining table.
With three beautiful bedrooms, you and your guests will be lavished with comfort. The master bedroom is located on the ground floor and has a unique character, with a cathedral-like ceiling whose gable is entirely glazed. This bedroom features its own private bathroom and also offers access to the outdoor terrace. On the garden level, you’ll find two other gorgeous bedrooms, one with another king-sized bed and one with two twins. Both offer access to the terrace.
The garden area of this lodge is full of surprises! The majority of the space serves as a spa, complete with a sauna, hammam, and a relaxation area.
One of Canada’s first holiday resorts, La Malbaie is a perfect alpine getaway for those looking for a little bit of everything. Surrounded by natural beauty, you’ll find plenty of opportunities for leisurely hikes in the summer, or even snowmobiling on your own property in the winter! Mont Grand-Fond ski area is only a 20-minute drive away, perfect for taking a day on the slopes. All along the St-Lawrence River, there are plenty of wonderful towns, filled with boutique shops and culinary exploits beyond your wildest dreams.

Memorable family moments !
The best house there is for a rustic getaway ! My family and I enjoyed very much ! Close to every activity we chose, but far enough to have a calm and serene place. Not to forget the exceptional view on St.Laurent river : we couldn't get enough of it. Surely will go back at my next trip to Charlevoix.”
A wonderful winter getaway
We had a fabulous get away at this incredible home. Photos don’t do it justice! Our host Monique and her caretaker Guy were gracious and very attentive. Highly recommend this property. ”
July 4th Summer vacation at Chalet Monibear Spa
Chalet Monibear couldn't have been a better experience for our family. Elegance, Serenity, and exploration of the Charlevoix region and cozy La Malbaie, Quebec was surreal and right at your fingertips. As advertised, breathtaking views of the mighty St. Lawrence river and La Malbai from every luxorious room. Days were started at the spa and then filled with hiking, shopping, sightseeing, and fishing. Evenings were typically met roasting marshmallows on open firepits down at the campsite or dining with friends and capturing glimpses of beluga whales from the deck (binoculars included). Monique and Guy couldn't have been a better host and property manager, taking their time with many inquiries about the Chalet and activities. Merci!! ”
