Pot à l’Eau-de-Vie islands


Pot à l’Eau-de-Vie Lighthouse

Many of the St. Lawrence lighthouses are more imposing, but few have more charm. Abandoned in 1964, 102 years after it was first commissioned, the Pot à l’Eau-de-vie lighthouse was restored by Duvetnor in 1989, turning it into a cozy inn with three attractive rooms furnished in the spirit of the 19th century. It is a classified federal heritage building. Stand watch at the gateway to the continent like the last lighthouse keepers, come spend a day at the lighthouse.
