Ermitage du Lac

Arrival/Check-In: The journey to arrive in Mont-Tremblant from Laval was a substantial one. More than an hour of driving through snow and frigid wind brought us to a hotel at the base of Tremblant. The façade and presentation are charming and grand, and a quick step inside the lobby tells you the charming aesthetic is not limited to the exterior of the building.

We arrived in Tremblant relatively early in the morning. As a result, only a few of our party’s guestrooms were available. We left and took as much time as possible seeing Tremblant, having coffee in town and getting lunch. Even with all of this extra exploring, my room was not ready until it was nearly time for a severalhours- long hike down the mountain. The wait could be attributed to our early arrival, but I wish I had a little more time to explore my accommodations before heading out for a night of adventure. The front desk could not give me an exact time to expect my room, so it was a lucky check that helped me realize it was available before the night’s activity.

Guest Quarters: As it turned out, the wait for the room was completely worth it. My suite-style accommodations included a full bathroom with a deep and accessible tub, a fireplace, a full sitting area, a half-kitchen and a great deal of space to stretch out and get work done between activities. The room offered plenty of space for relaxing while I recovered from intense winter activities.

As to the décor, it was a joy to spend time in the rooms. A single maroon accent wall brings out the wooden furniture and provides a pleasing break for the eye. The room artwork also pleased, while the fireplace and cabin-esque aesthetic made me feel like a traveler staying in a remote winter village.

The stylish living and sleeping quarters and sleek bathroom really helped to ease the transition of moving between three different hotels in the course of five days. On my final night in Tremblant, I stretched out on the couch with a book to pass some time before bed without feeling cramped.

Services/Amenities: Ermitage du Lac has many amenities and services necessary for a ski resort. It offers ski lockers, continental breakfast options (to allow for early risers) and a fitness room. In the warmer months an outdoor pool is open, but a hot tub is available all year-round. The hotel also features indoor parking, if you prefer; a game room; and limited meeting space, making the hotel a good bet for a small retreat.

What Ermitage du Lac does not have on its own, guests can find with a short venture into Mont-Tremblant village with its many shopping and dining options, with a walk of less than five minutes. The village also offers a convenient lift, bringing guests to more shops and the gondola, which goes to the top of the mountain for skiers and snowboarders.

TOP TAKEAWAYS:

◆ The close proximity of the hotel to the ski activities is perfect for rising early and hitting the slopes before it warms up in the afternoon.
◆ Mont-Tremblant offers great shopping and delicious dining within a five-minute walk of the hotel.
◆ The accommodations are stylish, spacious and comfortable, perfect for stretching out after a strenuous day on the slopes.

Global City Guidebook: Rotterdam

Situated about one hour from Amsterdam, Rotterdam, the second-largest city in The Netherlands and Europe’s largest seaport, is the more futuristic city of the pair. Rather than rebuild as it was before, following its near-destruction in World War II, Rotterdam looked ahead, and its extraordinary architecture is a result. The city has always focused on healthier living and working environments, and today it engages in climate-adaptive urban projects. Two areas harken back to old Rotterdam: Delfshaven (Delft Harbor) and Oude Haven (Old Harbor). Rotterdam is always alive, especially in springtime.
