Hotel Intel: Scandik takes glamping upscale in the Laurentians’ Ste-Marguerite
Chalets Scandik is a new getaway that has removed the camping part of glamping.
On the outskirts of Ste-Marguerite-du-Lac-Masson in the Laurentians, Scandik chalets are well-equipped with everything you would want in a cozy country cabin, including kitchens, bathrooms with showers, Wi-Fi, electricity and heated floors, which is a less expensive way to go than radiators.
Each chalet offers a summertime life revolving around individual landscaped patios with barbecues, firepits and garden chairs. The glamping part comes in because guests bring their own bedding, towels, toiletries and food.
“It’s lower maintenance and more sanitary that way,” said Isabelle Jouin, an interior designer who has developed Scandik with her husband, Dominique Hamel, a construction contractor, and their children, Jacob, 10, and Maelie, 11.
