Interlake Itineraries: St. Laurent, MB


My Cabin

St. Laurent, Manitoba, is a charming rural Métis community nestled in the picturesque Interlake region of Canada. St. Laurent is the oldest living Métis community in the world!

Known for its serene landscapes and proximity to Lake Manitoba, St. Laurent offers a peaceful retreat for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts. With a rich history, friendly locals, and various recreational activities, this idyllic town welcomes visitors to experience a slice of authentic Canadian countryside life.

Ever since I was a little girl I have been coming out to my family cabin in St, Laurent Manitoba. My Grandpa’s Dad and Uncle built the cabin in the 1950s. Every summer my family and I have been living at our cabin. This all changed when the flood of 2011 hit our and many families’ homes and cabins. After many years of repairs and updates on our cottage, we are finally in a state of peace.

Notice the little library on the right. Three years ago we started our little library on Venice Road. Now there are multiple libraries down our road!


The Beaches

St. Laurent beaches are often overlooked. These beaches include Sandpiper Beach, Twin Beaches, Pioneer Resort, Laurentia Beach, and Johnson Beach.

Big Tree Park (Parc Gros Arbre), located at Sandpiper Beach, is a must-visit when you are in St. Laurent. Big Tree Park Park is an inviting park great for picnicking and beach. The highlight of the park is the Big Tree which somehow survived the dreadful flood in 2011. Visitors are encouraged to take photos of the over 325-year-old cottonwood tree.
