Esprit Riverside BnB/HI Auberge Esprit/The Pointe Camping

Situated on a spectacular peninsula jutting into the Ottawa River, The Pointe (camping), Auberge Esprit (hostel) and Esprit Riverside BnB (private rooms. cabins and cottages) are ideally located mid-way between the world famous Algonquin and Gatineau Parks. Auberge Esprit/The Pointe, accredited by Hostelling International (network of lodgings offering clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation), is a unique, rustic camp catering to travellers, backpackers, course participants and rafters alike. Groups welcome!

Across the bay from Auberge Esprit is our new Esprit Riverside BnB.  It features a variety of accommodations including private rooms, cabins, cottages as well as a 3 bedroom suite.  Riverside is a quieter, more private option for those looking for something more comfortable after their day's adventure.

Both Auberge Esprit and Esprit Riverside BnB are well off the beaten tourist track yet are still easily accessible by public bus to Pembroke or Fort Coulonge, by Moose Transport (backpackers' budget transportation company) or by an Esprit shuttle from Ottawa/Gatineau.
