L’Auberge du Renouveau is based on the idea of « Voluntary Simplicity » Therefore, our guests are requested to bring all articles for personal use, such as :

- Sheets and blankets;
- Pillow case;
- Towel and soap.

• Please do not forget your slippers or warm socks for boots, shoes and running shoes as well as sandals are to be retrieved at the entrance, left on ceramic tiles to protect the wood floor;
• No smoking in the dwellings;
• No animals on the property.


A moving space set between sky and forest, in the heart of the mountains and situated on the outskirts of Sutton, the property represents 47 acres of forests and green space to walk through and be infused by Nature for a true regeneration of the body and soul - The guests are entitled to the use of the wood-heated Sauna. A fresh swim in the pond brings stimulation and assures well-being. The farm animals grazing around contribute generously to the atmosphere of peace and serenity. All drinking water is spring water drawn from the ground of our forest through gravity.

*L’auberge du Renouveau provides fire wood but visitors are required to make their own kindling.


Francine Ferland opened l’auberge du Renouveau in 1989. Prior to this, she founded in partnership with Claude Paiement the Natural Food Store, TAU, in Montreal, one of the first of its kind in Quebec.
