A Diamond in the Rough
Le MICA is a truly unique escape that offers the immersive experience of living in nature without completely disconnecting (if you have anxiety going off the grid).
Le MICA is a luxury micro home located in the middle of the “Maelström” recreational forestry area. It’s the perfect escape if you’re craving fresh air, a digital detox (although there is WIFI) and awe inspiring views.
Although you’ll never want to leave Le MICA, the “Maelström” boasts a multitude of outdoor activities, such as mountain biking, snowmobiling, snow shoeing, ski touring and 20km hiking trails accessible through all seasons.
Like a Moth to a Flame
Once you’ve checked off your outdoor activity for the day, make your way into the living room and put your feet up by the fire. Le MICA is a beautiful, thoughtfully designed home by M4 Architecture. It may be a micro home but it’s macro in design. Equipped with a Scandi-inspired gas fireplace, coziness is at your fingertips with this minimalist touch.
Sleep in the Clouds
Le MICA has two bedrooms but can sleep six thanks to a simple pullout sectional sofa in the living room. Whether it’s a group booking or friends stay late, le more le merrier at Le MICA. (But we’d recommend bringing an eye mask to ensure your shut eye isn’t interrupted when the sun comes up.)
The Best Bird’s Eye View
The pull-out sectional neatly packs up without much effort, so you can start your day lounging by the fire and taking in the view with a fresh cup of coffee. The clean design lines in the house contribute to the minimalist aesthetic and sense of calm. This Airbnb is truly therapy in the form of a vacation!
Fine Dining at Le MICA
The Airbnb’s kitchen may be on the slim side, but it was designed and outfitted to be incredibly user friendly, so whether you’re visiting for the first time, or a repeat booker, you’ll feel right at home in Le MICA’s minimalist kitchen.
Modern Comfort in Le MICA
The minimalist theme carries through to the Airbnb’s single bathroom where you’ll find a modern spa shower with natural wood and tile, a minimalist vanity, and a toilet with unbeatable views. The simple hardware keeps things organized while being uncluttered, so nothing comes between you and your selfcare routine.
A Four-Season Retreat
The covered outdoor patio is outfitted with pot lights, which means you can enjoy the great outdoors long into the evening (whether that starts at 4pm or 9pm). Imagine sitting on the patio during a spring rain, or a crisp winter night under the comfort of a cozy blanket. This is how to disconnect from the hustle and bustle, and reconnect with nature.
Save a Seat for Mother Nature
Not only is there an outdoor fire pit but Le MICA also has a barbeque for guests to cook up a storm with, and sleek outdoor furniture to top it all off. At Le MICA, everything was designed to maximize the appreciation of the outdoors.
A Micro Chalet’s Stairway to Heaven
Le MICA is a vacation home unlike any other. With sweeping views of Quebec’s Laurentian Park, and breathtaking sunsets at the highest peak of Lac-Beauport, this Airbnb is so much more than a rental, it’s an opportunity to truly experience nature, and find peace of mind.
Sounds like heaven on Earth, right? It can all be yours. Visit Le MICA on Airbnb to learn more.
