This was my third year at the Auberge du Coq de Montagne and I feel Tripadvisor Forum members should know about this gem. I had no idea what to expect the first time I stayed there. It’s in the old village and isn’t a run of the mill chain hotel like you get at the mountain base. From Montreal an hour and a half drive and you’re amidst the mountains and the most wonderful scenery.
I can’t praise Auberge du Coq highly enough. The owners, Kay and Nino, look after every wish their guests express. That’s why once you’ve stayed there, it’s like going back to personal friends. Guests return year after year – some for over 20 years. That alone tells one how good it is. Couples, families, teams, everyone.
And what can one say about the food? Gourmet is the only word that springs to mind. If you really love your food and a wide choice for every course, this is where you have to be. The whole dining experience is fabulous and at such inexpensive prices. Dining is open to everyone, hotel guests and others. In summer there is dining on a terrace which sits right over the lake and their service is superb. There's also a large bar area with everything you could want - all types of drinks, atmosphere and exceptional service.
Bedrooms are large, well lit and well-appointed - with coffee makers, fridges & micros. There are great views and there is nothing you need that Kay and Nino won’t provide if you ask. All bedrooms are en suite and there is secure parking for 15-20 cars in the hotel as it has its own long driveway off the road. But if you don’t have your own transport, that’s easy too. The shuttle bus stop is less than 2 minute’s walk from the Auberge. It goes to the mountain in 7 minutes and into the nearest small town of St Jovite in under 15.
Auberge du Coq is situated right beside/on top of Lake Moore so in summer it’s just steps to swimming, boating & all water activities. Guests also have use of a free sauna in the hotel. There are great walks and cycle trails. In winter there’s a skating rink on your doorstep and skiing minutes away.
Kay and Nino Faragalli never advertise so I felt that I absolutely had to let Tripadvisor members know about this gem. I always check Tripadvisor forums before going anywhere and I know there are thousands of you out there who do the same. So if you’re going for 2 weeks, 1 week or just a short trip, you’ll be made so very welcome for a really reasonable price. Go for it. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
