Hinterland is a German word dating back to 1888 and meaning “the land behind,” referring to the land beyond any coastal settlement or urban area. Hinterhouse, located in a densely forested hillside with sweeping views of the Mont-Tremblant Valley, shares the spirit of remoteness.
Designed by Montreal-based Ménard Dworkind, this home will indeed strengthen your connection to nature, starting with its sustainably-harvested materials: cedar, red pine, and Douglas fir. Flanked by windows, the 930 square foot living space provides forest views from every angle and centers around a rotating wood stove.
Seeming to emerge from the hillside itself is a sauna-as-replica of the main house – accessible via a winding staircase, carved out of the earth. Engage in the detoxifying Scandinavian spa pastime, followed by a splash of cold in the outdoor shower, and a rest in the hammock.
Speaking of restoration and cycles, the Hinter company plants ten trees for every booking. We can’t think of a more stunning base camp for exploring the regions beyond.
