Treehouse in Canada: Chalet Perché
The Chalet Perché is a stunning treehouse in Canada located in Quebec’s Upper Laurentians. This region is a huge wilderness area of stunning natural beauty encompassing mountains, 4,500 lakes and rivers, and a wildlife reserve. For these reasons, it is obviously a popular area of tourism. Therefore, what better way to enjoy it than to book into a treehouse and completely escape from the rest of the world. From the Chalet Perché, guests will feel as though they are the only people in the whole forest. There is simply no better way to recharge and reconnect with the world.
The whole construct of the Chalet Perché creates feelings of magic and mystique in the beholder. It is divided into sections, and each is connected to the other by an arrangement of staircases, walkways, and rope bridges. A wooden staircase leads up off the forest floor, across a small bridge to the main house. Following the verandah around leads to another small bridge, which allows guests to access an additional, slightly higher, platform wrapped around its own tree. This area is perfect for morning coffee, or any quiet moment to just sit back and absorb everything the forest has to offer.
The Chalet Perché hovers more than 5 meters off the ground, so guests cannot help but feel that sense of adventure and wonder felt as a child. The surrounding area has plenty of options for those needing to burn a little energy during the days. This is definitely an area that celebrates winter, as may be expected from a treehouse in Canada, with dog sledding, ice fishing, trapping, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing available. During other seasons canoeing, swimming, fishing, cycling, and hiking should be enough to keep even the most active of families entertained. The whole area of the Upper Laurentians is home to more than 4,000 lakes and so much untouched forest, it really is a dream come true for nature lovers.
A stay at the Chalet Perché starts at €150 per night. The cabin is suitable for families as well as couples and can be booked through AirBnB.
