Our Lodge

The Accomodation
The original founders of the Little Cascapedia Club were able to take their pick of a number of choice locations to establish the permanent base for their fishing club. When you first arrive at Camp Brûlé today it is impossible not to be impressed with their final selection. Nature provides the perfect soundtrack for a serene fishing retreat – the babbling rapids combine with the sounds of songbirds in the daytime and frogs at night to serenade salmon anglers.

The lodge itself stands largely unchanged from its original construction. Built by river guides from indigenous materials it is both a triumph of functionality and a testimony to the carpentry skills of local men. Over the years, generations of anglers have adorned the interior with fishing related folk art and artifacts, providing the place its own unique rustic charm. On cool evenings anglers congregate around the open fire in the main living room for pre-dinner cocktails and inspired by the wall mounted, wood representations of large salmon caught over the years, create new angling memories or re-invent old ones. For most of the summer though, it is the screened porch that draws people. Camp Brûlé remains a fishing camp and in season, one look at the porch tells you this as each new group of fishermen and women bedeck the area with a pot-pouri of rods, reels, lines, leaders and fly tying materials.

 
Over the years we have strived to maintain the old world look and feel of the lodge whilst ensuring that guests enjoy a level of modern-day comfort, befitting of an exclusive salmon camp. Each room is equipped with ample storage space and a writing-cum-fly typing desk. Communal areas of the lodge are finely furnished and the lodge maintains a good library of fly fishing literature and magazines. For those looking for more energetic after-lunch pursuits, Camp Brûlé owns the surrounding one hundred acres of pasture and woodland, which combined with the lodge gardens provides ample space for an afternoon stroll.  

The Dining
If the sights and sounds experienced from the camp veranda take care of some of your senses then our kitchen team, make it their mission to look after the rest. Our emphasis is on home cooked food, utilizing fresh ingredients, accompanied by good wines and served in a relaxed manner. This latter point is one of the few concessions we have made in accordance with modern lifestyle changes. In years gone by one could expect to ‘dress’ for dinner and participate in a level of pomp and ceremony. Today, the general rule is informality and this guides our overall treatment of the entire hospitality side of our operation.
