Companies are heading in a new direction, breaking the traditional rules of the past and taking innovative ways. Business leaders are on the lookout for unique places that will help their teams to relax and feel comfortable, so the team building sessions and brainstorming are more fluid and effective. That's one of the reasons why companies rent a cottage instead of a hotel for their "Corporate retreat". Here is my Top 6 reasons to rent a cottage for a corporate retreat.

Team Building and increased productivity:

A corporate retreat in the countryside, away from the four walls that welcome every day your team has the potential to foster camaraderie and improve employee productivity.


Renting a cottage is more profitable than a hotel. For example: the average price per night in a hotel for a room in Quebec is between $ 100 and $ 200 / night (3 to 4 stars). The chalets at the corner of Gabriel in the Appalaches Chaudière 5 bedroom costs $ 30 / night / person. Equipped with nearby activities such as canoeing, fishing, skiing, dog sledding, snowmobiling ... Consider also the savings to prepare meals at the cottage rather than dining out.

Accommodation and meeting space:

A cabin is much more spacious than a hotel room. Also, simplify logistics by renting a chalet serving both accommodation and meeting space for your group. Our cottages offer up to 4 to 5 bedrooms, with 2 neighboring properties. Creative meeting spaces such as living room, dining room or the lake can inspire great ideas.

Flexible hours:

In a typical meeting at the hotel, you must adhere to the schedule for meals, housekeeping, the opening hours of the pool and exercise room, etc. In terms of renting a cottage, you can set your own schedule. For example, a mountain race to start your day, trout fishing in the evening, eat and drink when you want.


Hotels are built to accommodate hundreds of people at the same time which can become annoying with customers coming and going, elevators, and crowded pool. The cottage will give you the privacy you need throughout your stay. In addition, you and your team will be able to walk through the forest trails, enjoy outdoor activities, or dine at local restaurants. Relax and recharge the batteries before returning to work.


Studies have shown that happy workers are productive workers. Reward your employees for their hard work and recalibrate the team away from the everyday to relax. A stay at the cottage allows business managers to show their appreciation for their employees by rewarding them for their contribution.

The cottages Au coin du Gabriel offer ideal spaces and quiet private settings with large spaces to maximize the opportunity to relax, have the freedom to be really creative and offer its full potential.
