We take pride in introducing you to our surroundings. Our beautiful handcrafted log resort is located right on the Nepisiguit River in a remote forested wilderness area in the heart of northern New Brunswick. Because of our four seasons, the fall with autumn color and over 400 cm of snow in the winter and hot summers we are blessed with extreme rich beauty in New Brunswick. We invite you to come join us and take part in our many activities and adventures that our region has to offer and make your stay with us a memorable and enjoyable one.

In the Fall when the leaves start to change the robust colorslakeside that blanket the terrain through the valleys and mountain range is truly a breathtaking site. This is one season in New Brunswick which is very popular with travelers as they venture up here to see the show. Also in the Fall we see the start of wild Canadian geese making their long journey down south for the winter months along with an abundance of other bird species, moose, white tail deer and black bears that can be seen in our area in all four seasons. At Pabineau Falls, hundreds of Atlantic salmon can be seen idle in pools or soaring through the air trying to get further up river, truly a breath-taking site.

Opportunities for canoeing, kayaking and hiking are boundless and Governors is at the doorstep of a designated Natural Protected area and Mount Carleton Provincial Park. Mount Carletonmount carleton is the highest peak in the Maritime Provinces and is renowned for its spectacular scenery, history and wildlife, making it a perfect destination for hikers and nature lovers. This is truly a tranquil place, with plenty of history from years ago when wealthy mean from the United States traveled here in the late 1800s and early 1900s to hunt big game such as moose and caribou that used to roam our land. This same land used to be home to thousands of men who come in the winter and stayed in logging camps built by the wood companies for the harvesting of our wood resources. They loggers would cut and pile the wood along the banks of the Nepisiguit River and in the Spring when the snow and rivers melted there would be a log drive down the river to the mouth of the Bay of Chaleur where the Bathurst Paper Mill was located.
