Destination: Maelstrom

A 580-meter-high mountain with 360-degree panoramic views can make the Charlevoix Mountains blush with jealousy. Maelstrom is not just a mountain where you can relax. It is also a mountain where it is wonderful to move. In collaboration with Les Sentiers du Moulin and the Provincial Snow Trail (FCMQ), you can explore the mountain seasonally with mountain biking (including motorcycle-bike formula), hiking, snowshoeing, greasy cycling and snowmobile.

Since we are talking about seasons, let me tell you how wonderful this mountain looks regardless of the weather. In winter, you might think you are in the Rockies Western Canada. The air is refreshing. In the spring, it feels like we are waking up to the rhythm of buds hatching. In summer, the days are bathed in bright light while at night, the Galaxy and its thousands of stars appear on a deep blue canvas. In autumn, the colors abound and are combined with the wonderful aromas of the forest. And what about sunrises and sunsets that, regardless of the season, are enchanting, magical and fascinating.

So I offer you a nice visit to 7 of the most beautiful ecological houses, in the style of a tiny house, this incredible mountain. Having each one designed to make you live a unique and unforgettable experience, I will not be surprised that many conquer your heart for a weekend!

Where it all started. Laury-Jane Mondoux Poirier, co-owner of Lagöm and director of Maelstrom rentals, had a very specific vision for this mountain, a vision that required visibility to create a craze. He would succeed with the construction of Lagöm.

Inspired by the Swedish philosophy of life of the same name, Lagöm invites simplicity, minimalism and reflection. Because at an altitude of 550 meters, you will know for yourself that there is a lot to study from there. From the mountain, Lagöm has undoubtedly the most beautiful view.

You can enjoy it on a magnificent 3-level terrace that seems to hover over the big trees. Once inside, everything invites calm: the smell of white pine covering the walls and floors, the pure Scandinavian decor, the abundant windows that invite the beauties of the surrounding nature inside, the small touches left here and there that make us to feel like Home “.

From the first rentals, photos of visitors immortalizing their stay more than inspiration began to surf the web until they caught the attention of travel, decorating blogs, programs and magazines. We talked about Lagöm on TVA (Salut Bonjour and CASA), Radio-Canada, Pratico-Practice magazine, dozens of blogs like Narcitiy, Curiocity, MTL Blog, MSN travel and more. This visibility allowed Lagöm to consolidate its reputation and attract investors willing to participate in Laury-Jane’s vision.

Since then, many eco-lodges have been developed on Mount Maelstrom, making them an indispensable destination for the revitalization of Quebec City. We look forward to Laury-Jane’s new baby on the mountain, Hygge, a thrilling forest idea with a very lively design. It is a good bet that we will talk so much, if not more, than Lagöm.

It can accommodate 4 people.

Lagöm’s authentic architecture and resounding success have obviously made many people want to reproduce the winning formula. This is why Laos owners have been inspired by various Lagum insignia to reproduce the idea with their own personal touch. What we love about Lao is the view of the Relais ski slopes and the contrast between the different shades of wood and the elements of black material that gives the place a rustic-modern look.

It can accommodate up to 4 people.

The cache

The owners of Cache went there with an amazing idea. With its modern exterior architecture, you might consider the continuation of the style inside, but no! We open the door and find ourselves in a completely different universe reminiscent of wooden crypts in the forest. Maybe where the inspiration for the name comes from. What we love about Cache is the intimate and warm atmosphere and the furniture of the past combined with modern comforts. A charming cocoon that will surely charm you.

It can accommodate up to 6 people.

The Panorama

Panorama is a very apt name. The view of the beautiful outdoor panorama is equal to the one you enjoy inside. The harmonious combination of raw materials in combination with modern elements gives the space a successful eclectic style. What we like about Panorama is the use of landings inside to separate the spaces and the magnificent 4-sided fireplace whose view can be enjoyed both inside and outside.

It can accommodate up to 4 people.

The aura

With an architecture reminiscent of fir tops, the Aura combines perfectly with its surroundings. Inside, everything is designed to take advantage of the comforts of home, while being completely different. What we love about Aura is the feeling of being in our children’s cabins, reconnecting with the feeling of security. We also (very much) like the spa on the outdoor terrace and the quick access to the hiking trail.

It can accommodate up to 6 people.

The cabin

Apart from the thoughtful, the architecture of the cabin is fun, especially on the second floor, where twin beds are in an authentic way. There is also a shower outside to rinse your feet full of mud after a long bike ride on the many mountain trails or just to cool off on hot summer days. The Cabin also offers stunning views of the sunsets and illuminated mountains of Relais Ski Area at night during the winter season.

It can accommodate up to 4 people.

With Mica, we are in an almost futuristic universe. During the white season, it combines with the environment in its color, but surprises the curves of nature from its architecture with clean and straight lines. The impression he makes is to meet a machine from space in the middle of the forest! What we love about Mika is his extremely modern style combined with intrigue and ingenuity and his almost complete nudity that allows him to stop and fill the void.

It can accommodate up to 4 people.
