  • Phare du Pot a l'Eau de Vie Lighthouse
    Phare du Pot a l'Eau de Vie Lighthouse

    Many of the St. Lawrence lighthouses are more imposing, but few have more charm than Phare du Pot a l'Eau-de-Vie Lighthouse. Abandoned in 1964, 102 years after it was first commissioned, the property was restored in 1989, turning it into a cosy inn with three attractive rooms furnished in the spirit of the 19th century. It is a classified federal heritage building. Your stay will include return boat transfers with wildlife spotting from Riviere du Loup to the island, accommodation on a half-board basis and access to the Pot du Phare walking trails (some trails will only be open once the birds have completed nesting in early July). Facilities at the lighthouse include three rooms with double bed, sink in two of the rooms and a shared upstairs bathroom. A telescope for observing marine birds and lighthouse tours are available.
