The tiny cabins are tucked away in cedar groves.
The [ÈST] Éco-cabines glamping site in Quebec's Gaspésie region is a destination for those seeking some luxurious solitude this summer. On offer are cozy modern cabins for two tucked away in the woods and a new spa that's only available to guests in private three-hour windows.
The concept eliminates the worst part of the spa experience: crossing paths with loud dripping wet strangers. The private reservation means you can carelessly wander between the baths before retreating to your isolated accommodation.
The spa includes a dry sauna, hammam, cold tub, hot tub, and indoor and outdoor relaxation areas.
Situated in cedar groves, the cabins, called [thuja], are "designed to create an experience of close proximity to nature," according to the [ÈST] website.
Large picture windows seem to blur the distinction between interior and exterior. Outdoor fireplaces allow guests to extend their living space into nature.
Each cabin also comes equipped with a kitchenette (burners, mini-fridge, toaster oven), as well as a compost toilet. The site has a separate "sanitary block" with three full, private bathrooms.
[ÈST] also has cabins that can accommodate up to five people. The larger [ublo] have the same amenities as the [thuja] (kitchenette and compost toilet), but, perched atop a cliff overlooking the Baie-des-Chaleurs, promise "breathtaking" sea views.
As of the time of writing, the two-person [thuja] cost between $169 and $189 per night for dates between May and August 2022. The [ublo] cost between $216 and $256 per night for dates in the same period, though most of the summer 2022 weekends are already booked.
