How we stand out
- Hotel Pontiac occupies the historic Fort William, a former Hudson’s Bay Company trading post. In summer, it is one of the not-to-be-missed restaurants and bars in the Pontiac region where you can get a drink and a bite to eat, listen to music, and enjoy the beach. To get there, you need a car—or a boat!
- The great outdoors in Sheenboro serves as an exceptional playground for outdoor enthusiasts. The municipality is located right near the unorganized territory, TNO Lac-Nilgaut, which is a great spot for those who want to be isolated from the world.
- One of the best lookouts in the Pontiac region to see beautiful landscapes is at the summit of Oiseau Rock. You can get there by hiking a trail of 4.5 km (in each direction) at the ZEC Saint-Patrice, which is also very popular for hunting, fishing, and camping, or by taking a boat ride on the Ottawa River.
- The 1,000 acres of private land at Brennan’s Recreational Farms, which has been around for over 100 years, serve as a location for hunting, fishing, horseback riding, and snowmobiling. You can even rent a small cabin or go for a sleigh ride in summer or in winter.
