Chic Shack….

…a name that sounds so simple, but truly is the best way to describe a cluster of secluded cabins in the Laurentians. Located just 15 minutes from Tremblant, my family and I had the pleasure of staying in a modern, curated shack located in an area called “Chic Shack” to disconnect from the city (and virtual school).

Absolutely submerged in nature’s beauty, this new development was anything but a “shack”. With its open concept design, exposed lumber ceilings and minimalist style, Boreal Habitat had everything our family needed to feel luxuriously comfortable during a much-needed mini vacation. 

Spacious enough to easily accommodate my family of 5, this 1100 square foot cabin was ideal for our stay, or even an adult only trip. It’s attention to hosting detail, commitment to support local companies and artisans, and 4 different ways to make the perfect cup of coffee (HELLO THE KEY TO MY HEART), we will definitely make the Boreal Habitat our destination over and over again – no matter the season.

We spent hours together around the kitchen island, enjoying the wall-to-wall windows that looked out into the wilderness, and lit a fire in the wood burning fireplace and transformed the abode into cozy bliss.


Since the cabin was only minutes away from local winter adventures in and around Mont Tremblant, our family took every opportunity take part in the seasonal fun.  Tubing at Aventure Neige and skating on Lac Mercier were the perfect alternatives to skiing and great winter activities only minutes away. At times, we just walked and hiked in the nature outside the chalet.

All in all, our little family winter get-away was exactly what we needed to recharge, reset, and reconnect…both with nature and ourselves. We came for the perfect winter get-away, and will definitely be back to in other seasons for no doubt will be a different view and experience.
