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 :)
