Contemplate magnificent seascapes at the Shipek cottage rentals

Located on the banks of the river, the Shipek rental cottages provide spectacular views across the water and are the ideal place to enjoy breathtaking sunrises. The name “Shipek” comes from the Innu word for “salt water” and refers to the vast St. Lawrence River that criss-crosses our ancestral lands.

Each Shipek cottage rental is designed to accommodate 2 people (except chalet 16 for 4 people) in a quiet, peaceful atmosphere. Your total comfort is assured by the many amenities such as electricity, a well-appointed kitchen and full bedding. The cottage’s proximity to the river makes it an exceptional location for watching wales from the shoreline.

Treat yourself to the Shipek cottage rental experience for a vacation on the shores of the St. Lawrence!
