Every fall season, we love to take a break from the city and plan a nature getaway to enjoy the beautiful autumn scenery. Last year, we went to Mont-Tremblant, as blogged here. This year, we decided to go "Glamping" in Wakefield, Quebec. So we found the cutest micro house on wheels named "La Crépuscule" that you can rent on BulleEtoile.com, they offer amazing accommodations for a more luxurious camping experience.
It's a pretty cool experience being in the middle of nature while living in a micro house that comes with all amenities, watching deer run by and soaking in the quietness of being in a remote area. It's much needed, especially if you live in a big busy city.
I recommend going to Wakefield for a one night, 2 day trip, it's enough time to see everything. It's a very quaint village with cute shops to see and cozy places to dine at. During our short stay, we went paddle boating, visited the Gendron Bridge, did some occasional shopping and of course a lovely dinner at The Village House.

While in Wakefield, we decided to go see Pink Lake, which is not in the town, however only 20 mins away. This lake has a beautiful turquoise color, it's best to go see it between 12-3pm for the best scenery. It's a really popular site, so expect a lot of tourist there.
Relaxing by the fire and roasting marshmallows.
I haven't had s'mores in so long, so we got the President's Choice S'mores kit, the chocolate was really bad. So next time, I plan on making fancy ones with Italian pizelle and belgian chocolate, that will be delicious!
Simple breakfast for two.
The owners of Bulle Etoile were kind enough to let us tour their other accommodations such as "La Hubble", which would be like living inside a very luxurious bubble tent with a clear window roof to look up at the stars. I really want to book the Hubble next time, it is a nice and romantic getaway idea. If you ever want to surprise your loved one or celebrate an anniversary, why not book this!
I also packed my nine west boots, my brocade tights from Winners and my London Fog purse which is also another #WinnersFabFind.
Of course, I had to go shopping, I bought this cute pink vest at Clothespeg which is a thrift shop located inside Café Molo, a unique and eco-friendly souvenir of my weekend in Wakefield.

Before heading back to Montreal, we had to try the Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream at La Cigale in Chelsea, it was so good!
