SUTTON, QUEBEC: Glamping It Up

A few friends keep asking me to go camping. In the winter. In Quebec. Where winter temperatures have been dropping to -39 celsius at times. Um, thanks, but no thanks. 

Just the thought of sleeping in a tent with God only knows what little critters scurrying about, bitter cold, no toilet, and even worse — no access to a hair dryer — is my idea of a nightmare. 

Enter glamorous camping.

Yes. A nice compromise for those like me that still want to be outdoors, want to say that they've been camping, but want a real bed, a real bathroom with plumbing, and electricity.

A quick Google search for "glamping Montreal", brings me to this MtlBlog's post and it's not long before I find the perfect spot. It ain't cheap. But I guess it's the price to pay for modern comfort and a little swankiness.
 

 


DOMAINE KABIN SUTTON


This place in Sutton (about 1.5-hour drive from Montreal) is my new happy place. For three days and two nights, I stayed in one of their SHAKs and I'm telling you, I could've stayed a hell of lot longer. Only 550 square feet, but so well-designed inside that it feels almost palatial. The decor is so very simple, but feels luxurious at the same time. 

Armed with the essential groceries - bread, cheese, deli meats and wine — my routine at the Kabin was simple: eat, drink, work a bit, watch Netflix a bit, dip in the hot tub and repeat. Sure there's plenty of cute shops, micro-breweries and hiking trails to try in the area, but I was perfectly content to hole up in this SHAK and do...basically nothing. 

So enjoy the photos and here's the info for the place, and I'm definitely going to make this a yearly thing. Or maybe monthly thing.
