Trout Point Lodge, Relais & Chateaux is pleased to announce that it is the only Canadian property featured an article on “tackling the backcounty in luxury” in the May, 2011 edition of the widely circulated magazine Men’s Journal.
The Lodge is among 7 hotels & resorts chosen for the article, which distinguishes each property for the range of activities offered along with a rugged, natural location. The distance of each hotel or resort from a Starbuck’s is also taken as an indicating of pristine remoteness. Trout Point leads in this criterion, being 162 miles from the nearest of these popular coffee outlets.
“The real charms of this cozy, 100-acre forest retreat are earthbound” notes the article, after mentioning Trout Point’s new staff astronomer. “The white spruce log and chiseled granite main lodge, surrounded by water on three sides, where a Celtic guitarist and fiddler jam beside a roaring stone fireplace; renowned Cajun & Acadian cooking classes; and naturalist-led kayak and hiking trips . . .”
Other properties mentioned include Lake Placid Lodge, also a member of Relais & Chateaux, in the Adirondack Region of New York (3 miles from a Starbuck’s), and Tordillo Mountain Lodge in Alaska (70 miles).
Men’s Journal has a circulation of over 722,000 and is the “sister” publication of Rolling Stone magazine.
