So natural, so close

The Larch Tree Resort

In the Upper Laurentians, two hours from Montreal, lies a peaceful haven in the middle of nature designed for families, groups, outdoor enthusiasts, occasional fishermen and hunters of small and large game.

On the Lac à la Peinture or in the forest, in the paths of the resort, you will feel far, very far from the hubbub of the cities. And we will do our best to keep it that way throughout your stay.

The little story

The Larch Tree Resort

In the fall of 2015, Vincent Gignac, a real estate entrepreneur and avid hunter and fisherman, and Claudine St-Pierre, a public sector employee, a Montreal couple, acquired a 230-acre territory in Ascension, on which a large lake with pure water and two rustic cottages are located. Their goal is to make it a recreational and tourist project in their image; simple and welcoming.

After three years of effort and investment, Station les Mélèzes opens, named for the presence of hundreds of conifers of this species throughout their domain.
