“You will fall in love, and go back :)”
Reviewed January 20, 2012

The Sea Shack is the 8th world wonder, hidden in Gaspesie. It's located literraly a couple steps from the sea. There is all kind of accomodations at great prices ; dorms or privates, cabins, yourtes, tipis .. Everything you would though of, is there, in better. It is a charm to look at and very clean. What I loved about Sea Shack is that there is something to do and have fun, at every season. The staff is great and helpful and you will feel like you're part of the group after 5 minutes there.

The first time I went was in february during a snowstorm, and I just loved it, so I went back during the spring to see what it looked like. I travelled both with my boyfriend and solo and enjoyed both stays - if you're alone, you'll instantly make friends.

During winter, you'll enjoy the igloo bar, the outdoor jacuzzi, ice ring, snowshoeing, wood stove .. I literally fell in love with the place and felt home.

During spring, you'll enjoy the whales, the sunsets, the bonfires, the Ruisseau Castor parc for walks, etc..

It's not close by walking distance to any store, you'll need to have your car or to hitchhike to Ste-Anne-des-Monts for food, so bring some before to go - there is a big kitchen with all the furnitures you'd need in the main buidling and fridges to store your food.

Bring a sleeping bag - they have sheets and blankets but you'll be more comfy and it'll feel warmer, especially in the yourtes, when someone forget to put wood in the stove during night and it goes off, you'll freeze your a** off if you don't bring it !

Accomodations are clean, and matresses are foams covered with vinyl so easy to keep clean !

Some cabins have sanitaries and some don't - you might have to get dressed and walk a couple seconds to get to the sanitarian block. Be aware that if you rent one of the 4 small cabins (Viking, Fraisinette, etc..) they are on the top of the cliff so more quiet, but there is a stair you'll have to climb up to go back to your cabin everytime.

I higly recommand the Sea Shack :)

Room Tip: Yourtes dorm are fun but close to the noisy area. Small cabins are private and cools and best place...

With such headline I was welcomed by some young girl in the famous Sea Shack.
One of my dreams was to stay in the TeePee at the end it wasn't so pleasant, because it was cold, rainy and sea was very noisy. Ohh and the bar (+party) goes till 3AM, as I understand whatever day it is!
There are some very great things about this place - food is great and very delicious, there is local beer in the bar, and outside there is a damn good hot tub! Great things to experience.
I will recommend this place, but if you prepare for this (sleeping bag etc), you are very young (or you can handle a littlebit (maybe sometime more than littlebit) of noise).

It was a great try out - so I'll try to do TeePee again but somewhere where is much warmer and much calmer.

In general place was awesome!

The Sea Shack is a Festive Hostel in the heart of Gaspésie, Québec.

The property is located right on the Saint-Laurent Gulf on one side and is surrounded by mountains. There are several accomodation options on the property. Room in the main building in a dormitary concept. There is also private rooms in log cabins, the option of a tipi, camping on the beach or in a yourte. The price of the stay is very modest and the accomodations are more than adequate.

This property has a unique concept and atmosphere, aiming towards sports andor rest during the day and partying at night. The property is located approximately 30 minutes from the Chic Choc moutains, offering great hiking opportunities. There are also daily Kayack and Canyoning trips offered straight from the property for a minimal cost. Since the property has a beach and located right on the water, during the warmer days, one can swim in the Gulf. There is a Gulf front Jaccuzi for the guests' enjoyment as well.

Guests of the hostel and cabins can enjoy the amnities of the kitchen, which is shared by all guests. There is also a comfy living room and dining room with big bay windows overlooking the water. If one is lucky, he or she may see whales right from the comfort of the dining room.

At night, there is a bar on the property which offers drinks at a reasonable price. There is a camp fire next to the bar and depending on the night and the crowd, there will either be singing and guitar playing around the fire or dancing at the bar with the DJ/Bartender playing great music. Most weekends during the summer, there are bands that play at night as well so there is the added bonus of live muisic!

All in all, it is a place for the young and the young at heart. Although it is not necessarily family oriented, some families that are more open minded do go and have a great time. It is a wonderful place for people in their 20s and 30s to go and meet new people and enjoy the outdoors. The setting is truly paradise and the 3 owners (Alexis, Simon and Bastien) are young business owners who aim for quality and originality rather that for volume. Their hostel is truly a reflection of their personalities and this is what makes this place more than special.

I would be glad to answer any questions with regards to this property and my trip. Feel free to e-mail me at : marilouemard@hotmail.com
