Spend the night in a historic lighthouse
Touring Quebec’s Maritimes region? For a once—in-a-lifetime experience, spend the night in one of three charming rooms in a lighthouse at Auberge du Phare du Pot à l’Eau-de-Vie (above). In keeping with its status as a national heritage site, the lighthouse’s rooms are decorated in a charming 19th-century style, which truly makes it feel as though you’ve travelled through time.
A second lighthouse, Maisons du Phare de l’Île Verte B&B, invites guests to sleep peacefully beneath a beacon that’s been quietly sweeping over the St. Lawrence for more than 200 years. There are nine rooms across two buildings (the lightkeeper’s house and assistant lightkeeper’s house) and each is equipped with a full kitchen.
