After staying at La Porte Rouge for four consecutive years, I thought it was time to write a review of the Augerge which is reflective of our experiences over this time period.
We have travelled throughout the world. We have been skiers for innumerable years. La Porte Rouge captures the ambience of l'ancien village de Mont Tremblant while meeting the expectations of those who associate Mont Tremblant with the Intrawest culture.
I should note at this point, that we feel that when we visit a culture where English is not spoken, we feel obligated to communicate in the language inherent to the community ... "when in Rome do as the Romans do." The fact that all the employees of La Porte Rouge are fluently bilingual is a "bonus" in our opinion, for visitors to Quebec. More significantly, all the employees strive to meet the needs of their guests, regardless of culture/language spoken. Bravo!
La Porte Rouge accomodations are simple but very, very, clean. One can quibble about details, but don't forget the forest for the trees: L'Augberge Porte Rouge doesn't claim to be a 5* "resort:" what it does offer is experienced, friendly, attentive staff and, if one is a skier, particulary efficient rooms. What more could one ask?
La Porte Rouge has an answer to the latter question: some very fine dining. A new chef this season has taken the dining experience to a new level. Combine chef's artistry and creativity with a pricing which is incomparable and La Porte Rouge offers incredible value for one's money.
Yes, there are menu items which are "optional" and more expensive ... but think about the reality of their situation ... one cannot offer a complete 5* Michelin menu at the price being charged by La Porte Rouge. Le nouveau chef est formidable. Forget about "buying up" on the menu: his daily offerings, in combination with his presentation, reflect the oustanding value offered by the Augerge.
La Porte Rouge is a hidden gem amongst the Intrawest "vibe." We highly recommend it to one and all.
