The Quebec Lodge is a bed & breakfast in a beautiful 4,000 square foot log cabin that was built in 1937. It originally served as the corporate retreat for the pulp and paper mill in Red Rock. The lodge has six cozy guest rooms, a great room that is 2 ½ floors high with cantilevered log beams, second floor walkway, a massive stone fireplace and a bar – perfect for meetings and evening relaxing. The dining room overlooks Lake Superior and the large kitchen is well equipped for preparing delicious meals for guests.
The aroma of a hearty breakfast will rouse you from your sleep in the morning and fuel you for a day of adventure. After a long day of fishing and exploring, relax on the large deck overlooking Lake Superior or share stories around the campfire.
The main activity at the lodge centers around the world class brook trout fishery on the Nipigon River. The Nipigon River produced the world record brook trout caught in 1915, weighing in at 14 pounds 6 ounces. The lodge uses some of the best local guides in the business and catches of 4-6 pounds are routine and can range up to 10 pounds. Who knows perhaps even the next world record is lurking down there somewhere!
