Kénogami Lake is a long lake in the Town of Kénogami, south-central Quebec in the Laurentian Highlands about 150 kilometers north of the Saint Lawrence River. The lake is 21 miles long and has an average width of 3/4 of a mile. Its area is 57 km² and it is 11 to 102 meters deep. "Kénogami" means "long lake" in the Montagnais dialect.
This area has a long and storied history of tourism. From the days of ski trains dropping off weekend vacationers, who were then met by horse-drawn sleighs, the Laurentian Highlands now has ultra modern facilities replete with champagne style lodgings and accommodations, vacation rentals, chalet rentals, condo rentals, bars, bistros, night clubs and restaurants. An outdoor adventure to welcome early spring occurs every March during “sugaring-off” when maple trees are tapped and the sap boiled down in a sugar shack—cabane à sucre—then served in a dining hall with music, dancing and traditional Quebec delicacies such as ham, baked beans, crêpes, eggs poached in maple syrup and maple taffy on snow. Maple syrup from the area is world famous and is sold across Canada and around the globe.
Here, just outside the door of your vacation rental, you can enjoy the longest ski season in eastern North America stretching from November to May. The Highlands feature a wide range of accommodations and vacation rentals, small inns, chalet rentals, bed and breakfasts as well as grand old hotels with European ambience and chefs who create cordon bleu meals. Visitors can also choose to stay at a resort condo, chalet or campground; or stop in at a pâtisserie (bakery), a fromagerie (cheese shop) and a dépanneur (convenience store) for a bottle of wine to make their own meal.Lac Kenogami last minute deals on vacation homes will be highlighted in red if available.
