Accommodations

From the time the partners acquired this salmon camp on the Restigouche River we have been focused on a gradual transformation of changes and upgrades to the structures and grounds. RRL guests returning each season are witness to these changes. Though the years we have and will continue with the projects and upgrades that will enhance the visits of our guests and owners alike.

The accommodations at the Restigouche River Lodge offer these features. A main dining lodge, a premier guest lodge, a two bedroom cottage and a three bedroom guest camp. With the different layout of the camp buildings we are able to offer our guests, family or group bookings many lodging options.

Camp main lodge

 

The RRL Main Lodge

   A special dining experience is served three times daily in our main lodge, said to be the best dining on the Gaspe. At the Restigouche River Lodge we are fortunate to benefit from the gradual building changes that has left a unique footprint to this salmon camps layout. Our main lodge serves not only as a dining lodge, it is a place for our guests to mingle. Mingle 24 / 7 coffee, tea, cold drinks and baked delights are always at hand. When a guest wants some quite time he or she needs only to stroll back to their cottage for some personal time. In the lodge you can relax with a choice beverage and warm up by a crackling fire. Take in the beauty of the Restigouche River, a spectular upriver view of Home Pool is on the canvas from the screened veranda.

It is our quest to bring the true Atlantic salmon lodge experience from yesteryear to our guests. We have surrounded this camp with perennial gardens, beds of roses, peonies and other fragrant flowers. Stroll the winding gravel pathways through this garden. Your journey from the upriver side of the Highland Camp brings your through this hillside garden. Walking the path through the garden you will cross a small bridge and a babbling brook on the way to the dining lodge. Stop and take in all that nature has to offer at one of the garden benches along the way. On your way you might stop to meditate by the lower pond, watch the birds and let your hectic life dissolve into the peaceful surroundings of the Highland Camp Hillside Garden.

Two Bedroom Cottage (Camp Head)

Camp Head sits on a slight bluff overlooking the Restigouche River just down river from the Guest Camp. A short walk across the foot bridge brings you to the Lodge. This cottage is believed to have been constructed in the late sixties and has served as the owner’s camp for the prior owners. It is the perfect family accommodation, sleeping four guest with two baths and a large living area. There is a screened porch that serves for rod storage and as a changing room to get in and out of wet ear.

Three Bedroom Guest Camp (Camp McBrearty)

From the time of King Grants this section of water had been leased to others by a succession of owners. The camp was constructed when one of the unknown prior owners began fishing this section of Restigouche River water. The camp has gone two major construction additions over the years. This camp serves the RRL well as a larger six guest accommodation. This is our closest camp alongside the Restigouche and guests can keep an eagle eye on Home Pool. Three bedrooms all with private baths and a large living area are the features of this camp.
