I've been out of town all week, travelling through the Quebec countryside, spaaing and feasting while we push our way through the snow using various modes of antiquated transportation, among them dogsledding, snowshoeing and even the horse-pulled sleigh ride I'm enjoying here, at Auberge Le Balachon, in Saint-Paulin.
This place is amazing. Not only do they have a great spa and fine gastronomy, but there's also a waterfall-flanked boardwalk, 5km of river skating, dogsledding, horseback riding, a grand caban a sucre, and the new Eco-Cafe, which serves and sells products from over 35 local producers.
Not too shabby for a little inn in the woods.
