“Gorgeous, relaxing honeymoon.”
A smaller studio cottage that is very private with a lovely view through the trees up a huge bay. Sightlines have been pruned halfway up big pines for your enjoyment. Sitting on the screened porch, perched out over a steep rock formation and reached by French doors from the living area, is just like being in a treehouse. The covered entrance deck is the place to sit and see the sunrise or have a glass of wine and watch your dinner on the BBQ. About 40 meters from the water and you don’t need to be closer, Filles du Roi is a bit of heaven.
We are filming the interior and exterior of this cottage in the spring. We took a few winter photos recently that will show you the exterior. The interior is done to the same quality as the rest of our cottages have a look at Brebeuf, Hopkins or Radisson.

A BRIEF HISTORY
In the late 1600s the French population of New France, mainly in what is now Quebec, were
principally missionaries and fur traders. There were few women and a lot of men – an approx 1:6 ratio of women to men. In order to address this, Jean Talon (Intendant of the colony) and King Louis XIV sent eight hundred women to New France over a period of years. They were later
given the name les Filles du Roi (daughters of the king). Today, two-thirds of French-
Canadians can trace their ancestry back to these brave women.
From time to time we will interest you with developments at the lodge - projects, competitions, the river & the environment.
