Maison Goulet Glamping at St. Pierre Jolys Museum (St. Pierre Jolys)

What do you get when you pair together history and gorgeous accommodations? An amazing glamping experience, of course! The Maison Goulet is run and located by the Musee St. Pierre Museum Grounds, adjacent to the Joubert creek.

This experience brings historical roots home – literally – with overnight glamping in a traditional Métis home built sometime in the 1860s. This home, renovated as the family grew, was originally located 4 miles south of St. Pierre Jolys on the Rat River.

The Maison Goulet can accommodate up to five people with cots in the central dining/living area. And don’t worry, you won’t get cold with the electrical baseboard inside the building.

Your basic amenities are provided, like cookware, microwave, hotplate, BBQ, firepit, and a porta-potty; however, the Maison does not have running water. Potable drinking water will be supplied, and there is an outdoor tap. The only things you’ll have to bring are linens, dish towels, soap, cooking supplies, personal dishes, and personal gear. Plus, enjoy discounted food at J’em Bistro! At J’em Bistro, you can enjoy meals made from scratch and a lot of love.
