In the 1920s, Boule Rock Hotel provided its guests with a heated saltwater pool. Its impressive diving platform would certainly have been safer than the edge of the wharf. If they wished, guests could even take advantage of a few tips from a swimming instructor!
Guests could reach the pool from the floor where the rooms were located, allowing them to go take a discrete early-morning dip.
This pool was only one of Boule Rock Hotel’s attractions. Most rooms offered a view of the sea. Guests could enjoy a library, a smoking room, a ballroom and a very large dining room where local delicacies were served, including the renowned Gaspésie salmon.
