Enjoy a nightcap at Auberge Nathalie Ora, depending on the season either watch the night skies either on the deck, next to the Japanese style pond, or at the Point at the ocean, where the Wedgeport walking trail starts, or cuddle up cozily inside, next to the electric fireplace in the kitchen or living room.

The following morning, after breakfast at Café Brioche d'Or, visit the famous Cape Forchu Lighthouse.

Continue to the beaches of Port Maitland or Mavilette, and spend an hour or two walking a deserted sandy beach barefoot, listen to the waves and the song of the sea gulls, or just make yourself comfortable in the warm sand, and take in the sights and sounds.

Or plan for one or several days of kayaking or canoeing in the Tobeatic wilderness.

If you rather prefer golfing over tennis, take in a few rounds of golf 20 minutes away. In case you haven’t packed any golf clubs, ask the staff at the Nathalie Ora about our available golf clubs (free of charge).
