“A lovely B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

My husband and I stayed at l'Escale du Nord in August. We were there to cheer on our daughter as she participated in Ironman Mt. Tremblant 2013. Denis and Veronique were lovely hosts. Breakfasts were scrumptious and the property was very nice. We did not have an opportunity to use any of the amenities such as the hot tub, pool, movie room, etc. because our schedule was dictated by our daughter's race. On the morning of the race we needed to leave the property at 5 a.m. and Veronique kindly provided baked goods and juices for us to take with us for breakfast. We enjoyed talking with Denis and Veronique and would heartily recommend this B&B to other travelers.

My wife and I stayed for 5 days in mid June and we had thoroughly enjoyable time. Denis and Veronique and their family were wonderful hosts and they made us feel very welcome. They have a great knowledge of the area and were able to recommend many activities such as walking trails and canoeing as well as restaurants in the village. The facilities at the lodge were excellent whether it was swimming , hot tub or just relaxing watching a movie. A special treat were the breakfasts specially prepared by Denis.

Thank you Denis & Veronique & Antoinne.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2013

I recently visited Mont-Tremblant and stayed at this Escale du Nord B&B with my family. Beautiful place, great location, not such warm hosts or environment. We were not aware or informed that the hot tub could only be used till 10p.m. Since you open and turn it on yourself I thought we could do it anytime. One night we only had 5 min to enjoy it after a long day on the mountain. Maybe Denis thought we were using too much energy or water, or having too much fun. We were charged for lots of extra things we didn't expect. We were not told that we'll be charged for using a small fridge in the kitchenette in the basement. We were not told that pop is 3$ each. Actually every other B&B I've stayed at had complementary drinks and even hot chocolate( if it is close to a sky resort). How cheap do you have to be to make money on pop?
The rooms are not comfortable. Lots of useless things that occupy space( for decor??) but not enough room to put your things and only one chair to sit on. A huge boat paddle hanging on the ceiling right above your head and actually one of the strings that was holding it was ripped.I Could not fall asleep until that thing came down. Not thought through.

Bonjour

Votre commentaire a retenu toute notre attention et mérite quelques précisions de notre part.
Les invités qui viennent dans notre gite, veulent principalement se relaxer et trouver de la tranquillité. Il est évident que notre spa ne peut pas fonctionner après 22h00 car cela nuirait au confort de ceux ci. Ce n’est pas dans un souci d’économie mais plutôt dans un esprit de respect envers nos invités.
En ce qui concerne les suppléments, c’est clairement indiqué sur place et sur notre site web que l’utilisation de l’espace cuisine entraine un cout de 5$ par personne et par jour. Tout comme le mini bar, les prix sont en fonction des boissons.
Pour finir, la chambre a été modifiée afin de recevoir votre enfant et par conséquent, nous enlevons un fauteuil afin de vous libérer de l’espace. Une penderie et une commode de 4 tiroirs sont à votre disposition pour le rangement de vos affaires. La chambre est décorée avec des objets et des meubles en concordance avec le style de la chambre.
Notre gite se différentie d’un hôtel standard avec une chambre standard. C’est ce qui fait notre originalité.
Pour finir, je vous ai répondu en français (ma langue maternelle) là, il est vrai que j’ai un niveau en anglais au dessous de la moyenne !!
Sincères salutations
Denis

I recently spent a few days skiing at Mont Tremblant and stayed at Escale du Nord. This B&B is about 7 miles from the ski area and maybe 2 miles from town - very convenient location.

Denis and his wife Veronique are very gracious hosts. The B&B is very homey while modern - some B&Bs can be a little too "country" in terms of decor and amenities but not here. Each room references a city or region in France - I stayed in the Lille room. Denis and Veronique are from France and brought a little slice of it to their B&B.

Breakfasts were all really delicious, with fresh fruit every day, the main course, and then a little dessert/muffin to end it all. I enjoyed it all! I didn't take advantage of the sauna nor the hot tub but I did book a massage while there. Marjolaine is a local massage therapist who has a room at the B&B so it was very convenient to have her come there. Denis was able to book my appointment with her. She was great.

The pictures of the room on the site do justice to the size of the rooms. Sometimes I have found in the past that the room looks larger online than it is. My room was a nice size with a private bath.

The only minor suggestion I have would be to put a small shower caddy in the shower. It was awkward to keep my shampoo and soap on the floor of the shower.

I have stayed at a lot of B&Bs and definitely rank this one pretty high up on my list. Between gracious, helpful hosts and a convenient location, it's a great choice if you are visiting this area of Quebec.

Room Tip: See if you can get a room where you can see the deer feeding out your window. They come every morni...

The B&B was beautiful, and breakfast was amazing! The rooms were very spacious and clean and the beds were incredibly comfortable.
After a long day of skiing it was great to relax in the hot tub and watch deers to pass around!
We had a wonderful time at this B&B! I highly recommend it!

When we arrived my boyfriend and I, we met Denis, our host. He is kind, thoughtful and very welcoming! He showed us his wonderful B&B with many accommodations. Our room was perfect and we loved the decoration and the concept of bringing France to Quebec culture. L'Escale du Nord is clean and comfortable and the breakfast is delicious! Thank you for the experience.
