Hinter hideouts

An award-winning collection of unique spaces that are a blend of innovative design and sustainability.

On a densely forested hillside in La Conception, Quebec, Hinterland can be found in the Laurentians, a relaxing 15-minute drive from the Mont-Tremblant ski resort. In cabins designed to “see time pass”, there’s a strong emphasis here on what really matters… peace and quiet.

Carefully selecting each minimalistic element with nature in mind, Architectural firm, Menard Dworkind, has blended a Norwegian mountain vibe with tasteful Japanese design cues to create Hinterhouse and Hintercabin.

Booking well in advance is recommended.
