Reviewed 2 August 2014

Just got back from this hotel a few days ago…
Unfortunately the week we were there the weather did not co-operate with us and we had rain and cold for 4 days… And at this particular resort there is not much to do if bad weather… So we jumped in our vehicle and made our way out to Montreal and Saint-Jorome which was excellent and only 30 minutes from resort…
Other than bad weather room was nice but could have been cleaner… Very dark décor and a few light bulbs needed replacing.

The worst part was at 8pm resort was deserted with no family activities at all. There was something of a movie night which we were quickly disappointed with. I had approached the older front lady clerk about the show when she replied said had “NO IDEA” so when we arrived there this movie was at least 15 years old and not family appropriate at all… Also not 1 person had shown up for this movie… So we again disappointed, went back to our room and were asleep by 9:30pm… The next morning I asked a very nice young girl at the front desk about the movie, she stated its been the same one for a long time and there really is no interest in that show at all??? LOL!!! Who would have thought to update that???

So from a family perspective which most of the visitors being families with young children…

1.A kid friendly movie night would be a plus to have so parents and children have something to do in the evening

2.A children’s club should be ran nightly and some updates to the resort in the entertainment area would also be a good thing.

3. The indoor pool needs more attention (Cleanliness)

On the plus side tennis was great there is mini golf on site and there was a lot of updating of landscaping going on there as well. Not a bad place but not a Wyndham Standard resort…
Not 100% if we will be returning or not. It’ll be a while for sure.

Room Tip: Don't try to upgrade not flexible at all...

Hello from our studio unit in bldg H! As you can imagine, the free wifi is working well! When we planned our trip, it was to be a week of sun and fun spent in, on and around the lake .... but mother nature pulled a trick on us and sent fall in a bit early :(

This is an awesome resort, not 100% certain I would rank it at RCI's gold crown designation but certainly it's a fantastic 4* destination. Our unit is a studio....one double bed, one queen size pull out couch, smallish 4 pc bath and mini kitchen with most necessary appliances to get by. The bed is comfy and the unit is clean. We have seen a few ants in the bathroom, will report it when we check out.

All of the public areas are clean and in fantastically maintained shape with one very small exception....the deck/dock area is in bad need of paint. Lots to do...kayaks, canoes, pedal boats, nightly fire pit on the beach, an onsite excursion company with tons of things to pick from, indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs, etc. Language is NOT an issue....almost everyone speaks at least a bit of english and are visibly pleased if you make an effort to say a few words in french.

Since mother nature threw us such a curve ball, we took the opportunity to explore the surrounding area. Each of the small towns have their own atmosphere but in particular, Saint Sauveur and Tremblant are awesome. Eat at the local family owned restaurants for some authentic local meals! Can't comment on the onsite restaurants as we have not tried it yet but the menu looks wonderful.

This is a wonderful resort tucked away in a great place. It's very kid friendly with lots of free activities. Our one bedroom room in building H was perfect with a well stocked kitchen, nice roomy bathroom and a comfy queen sized bed.

Minor anion eps amounted to the high prices;
1.). The restaurant was excellent but you pay quite a lot especially if you buy some of their over-priced wine.
2.). You are not allowed to take anything to the beach. All food and drinks must be purchased from the snack bar and again the prices are a bit high if alcohol is involved.
3.). There is another organization on-site that provides paid tours. I wanted to go on a 2 hour fishing trip ($99) but was told I needed a second person at another $99 or they would either shorten or cancel the trip. Tours to Montreal or Quebec were outlandishly expensive.

But contrary to this there were lots of free activities. Paddle boats, canoes, kayaks, billiards, tennis, hiking trails, etc. the best area to visit is St. Sauveur only 10 miles away. If we had it to do over again we would have skipped the expensive on site restaurant and eaten at one of the 100 restaurants there.

Room Tip: Our building H was up the hill. It was secluded but is the closest new unit to the activities below...

Very clean, quiet beautiful lake plenty of things to do from fishing for muskies up to 15 pounds to swimming, canoeing, paddle boats, indoor outdoor pools,hiking trails, guided tours to Montreal and Quebec city. Many small towns surround the resort. The resort itself is very clean with a great helpful staff.

Room Tip: Double beds, not good for tall man. Bed in loft against the roof.

My wife and I were very pleasantly surprised with our visit to the Lac Morency last July. Our cabin and the resort were always clean and the staff were consistently very helpful. The lake is relaxing and quiet, and the resort is well-equipped for your enjoyment of the water. The spa, indoor and outdoor pools were very well maintained. The gourmet restaurant has a great view and is very up-scale. This is a great place for couples or families to spend a week in the outdoors. There are plenly of other amenities and activities to keep you entertained. We have been to many other locations, and Lac Morency was an enjoyable experience.

When I booked this resort for mid March I thought we'd be coming sort of off-season but winter just won't let up and we have had 2 snowfalls in our week here already. Yesterday was 15 cm. When we woke up the snow-blower was already outside and the snow plow had already cleared the road. It wasn't long before two guys with shovels were outside clearing our short walkway. We are seniors so we did not use the winter activities available but we watched many guests having a great time. There were snowmobiles, broomball & free skates (they had a rink cleaned off on the lake), ice fishing and even a couple of teams of dogs for dog sledding. I would love to return when the lake is not frozen solid. Go for the orientation on Monday morning at 9:30. They serve the most incredible Danish pastries I have ever eaten! We were told they are made by the pastry chef in the restaurant there. The orientation was only about 30 minutes and very informative, including a map showing the short-cut to Saint-Saveur. The fellow switched from French to English and back so everyone understood everything. We had not been to Quebec in many years because our last experience was not good. When people found out we spoke English they would pretend they couldn't understand us even though sometimes we had heard them speak a bit of English previously. (We had car trouble and no one would help us.) Not the same this time. After they said Bon jour and we responded with Hello they would switch to English for us. Really appreciated it as my high school French is mostly forgotten. We had a problem with the heat in our unit and they were prompt in sending someone to look at it. It could not be fixed so someone even helped us move. New unit, dishwasher wasn't working right. Again, someone was right there. Easy fix this time because it turned out it was just the door not locking shut. I do not mean that things were run down. It was just things that can happen and I only mention them to show that staff responds quickly. We found the units to be very clean and well laid out. We did have dinner at the restaurant and it was excellent. 3 course Table d'Hote for $40. Very upscale. This is an excellent price but they also have a deal of 8 dinners for $317 which includes tax and gratuities. So a couple could have 4 dinners each there. I had brought some ingredients for meals in our unit so we didn't take them up on that deal. (It would be good to know about this ahead of time.) Our unit is up on the hill and there is a wonderful view of the lake below. Unfortunately all we can see are leafless trees, frozen lake and snow right now so we need to come back again. We're told they have grape vines and make their own ice wine here. Can't sell it yet due to licensing regulations but that will come. All in all a great place to vacation. Positive all the way!

Room Tip: Ask for a room up on the hills so you have the best rooms. It is only a short walk to the lake even...
