The inn is located in the heart of the Saguenay Fjord in the center of the village of L'Anse-Saint-Jean. It is surrounded by the Saguenay Fjord National Park and the Saguenay-St-Laurent Marine Park. Their outdoor activities and their rich natural environment attract tourists all year round. Both the winter activities of snowmobiling, downhill skiing or the high road of Mont-Édouard as well as the hikes in the parks and the nautical activities of the fjord are sought after by domestic and foreign tourists


Established since 1986, it has 15 rooms in 3 different categories: economy with 1 double bed, family with 2 double beds and superior with queen bed. Each room has a full bathroom, refrigerator, microwave, and private sunroom space. A shared lounge is adjacent to the economy rooms. The first floor is occupied by the breakfast dining room, the reception and a staff apartment.

In operation since 1986, it stopped annual catering and accommodation operations in winter in 2015.

Location of the inn: L'Anse-St-Jean is the center of activities in the Saguenay Fjord. It includes the following nautical activities: day cruises, kayaking, boating and sport fishing. The Terrestrial Park offers a whole network of short and long hikes.

In winter, the village becomes a crossroads for snowmobile trails. The Mont-Édouard ski center offers alpine, Nordic and high road skis. Vacationers can enjoy snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, dog sledding, and ice fishing in the Saguenay Fjord


Building architecture: The architecture of the inn with its verandas and interior corridors facilitates circulation and allows indoor and outdoor access to each room. Each unit has a privileged exterior access for transporting luggage and with snowy shoes in winter and an interior access that decreases the heating in winter and allows access to the reception, dining room and community lounge. Each room has a private portion of the veranda in front of its room's exterior door.

Decoration and construction: The preservation of the decoration and the architecture of the heritage type composes a personalized decor that is unique and incomparable to the inn that allows it to cross the apparently expensive trends. A majority of our customers' comments highlight the pleasant change of scenery


Low maintenance costs: Their design and easy access result in a low cost for room cleaning. The average maintenance time for a rented room including laundry is less than 1 man-hour. Due to the geographical position of the village, residential products, systems or technologies are still used. Both spare parts and specialists are easily found.

The land: The land with its 2 car parks can accommodate all types of vehicles including buses and commercial vehicles and gives direct access to snowmobile trails. The large unused portion allows for future development.


Competition: The new installations in the village of L'Anse-Saint-Jean will only be short-term rentals (such as Airbnb) and accommodations offering a particular experience (type:cabin in the forest). These have very high daily costs due to their fixed fixed costs or activities and to their housekeeping costs (3-4 man-hours per rental). For the 3 other hotel establishments in the village, they are in a different niche (youth hostel, adjoining a Spa or smaller number of rooms and restaurant). Traditional hotel establishments will no longer be built with our current construction costs of $3 to $4,000

per square meter.

Competitive advantages: Faced with the arrival of short-term rental housing (such as Airbnb), our low maintenance costs and our economical rooms allow us to rent our rooms for a single night at a very high price and to offer a small room with a small surface area but which has all the amenities also at a good price. A 30-40% surcharge is required for a single night or last-minute bookings.

Reputation: Our reputation has been established for many years with local and regional tourism organizations and the regional and provincial hotel sector. For the particular snowmobiling community, despite the winter closure since 2015, we remain close to agencies and organizations because the owner remains vice president of the Fjord Snowmobile Club


Travel agencies: We do business with several travel agencies. Those who offer snowmobile packages to small groups (max 15 people) are still in contact with us. For the summer season, we sell them the FIT product and now sold under the name of "road trip". Their market segment is 100% foreign and especially European.

Breakfasts: A recent survey mentions that 78% of Quebec travelers are looking for establishments offering breakfast. The hotel industry has always maintained this point of view and both Europeans (75% of our clientele) and Americans share it

The steps involved in buying a property

Could this property be “the one”? Here’s an overview of the steps involved in becoming the owner. These steps and the legal implications remain the same whether the property is purchased from an individual or through a broker.


One of the first things to do when looking for a property is to get a mortgage preapproval from a financial institution. The goal is to determine borrowing capacity, and as a result, the price range to be looking in.

Offer to purchase

The property suits the budget and needs? Time to submit an offer to purchase! This document sets out the price, the elements included in the sale, the possession date, the conditions of purchase and all other information relevant to the sale.

Need the form?

Conditions of purchase

The offer to purchase generally includes conditions. The most common are the property passing an inspection, the buyer providing proof of financing and the buyer selling their own property. Once the listed conditions are met, the property is considered sold.

Property transfer

The last step is to see a notary, who is generally chosen by the buyer. This real estate professional drafts the deed of sale and ensures that the interests of all parties involved are respected.

Once the deed of sale is notarized, the new owner gets the keys to the home. All that’s left is to move in!
