Mont Gabriel Resort & Spa

Arrival/Check-In: I arrived at the Hotel Mont Gabriel in the afternoon for a one-night stay. The road up to the hotel is quite steep and winding, so we initially missed the turn and needed to backtrack. Despite its tucked-away location within the Laurentian Mountains, the property feels welcoming. The lobby is rustic yet luxurious, and I waited just a few moments to check in. The friendly front desk attendant directed me toward the elevator to my room on the second floor.

Guest Quarters: The newly renovated property offers guests the choice of accommodations in the hotel’s recent addition or original 1936 logwood wall section. My room was in the newer portion of the property. It felt more modern than rustic and boasted a king-sized bed, mini refrigerator, desk, armchair with ottoman and other standard guestroom amenities. I had a spectacular view of the nearby ski slopes and lush forest from my private balcony. Though the rooms are smoke-free, I did notice a faint smoke odor on my balcony, perhaps from one of my neighbors. My busy itinerary allowed me only a brief time in my room before I departed for my evening event. This left me with just enough time to settle into the accommodations and send a few emails. I always appreciate complimentary WiFi.

Services/Amenities: Unfortunately, my stay was short, and I was not able to experience all of the many amenities and activities. The resort offers a variety of family-friendly activities including heated indoor and outdoor pools, six tennis courts, sledding, skiing, ski lessons and an 18-hole golf course. While I didn’t have time to golf, I did take a brief tour of the picturesque mountain course. I did not have the time to indulge in the on-site spa during my stay, though I perused the spa treatment menu, and it looked divine. In addition to the leisure activities, the property hosts corporate events. In total, it offers 9,243 square feet of event space within 11 different rooms to accommodate any size event.

The property offers two dining options: L’Ambroisie and St-Moritz. I dined at L’Ambroisie for breakfast on the morning of my departure. The restaurant décor boasts a ski lodge vibe with wood accents and warm colors. I sampled from the breakfast buffet, including a made-to-order omelet from the omelet station. Alongside the hearty breakfast classics, the dining experience felt Canadian — maple syrup included. Room service is also available.

The property, conveniently located between Montréal and Mont Tremblant, offers the ideal midway point for business and leisure travelers alike.

TOP TAKEAWAYS:

◆ Book your stay during the winter for world-class skiing and outdoor activities, including a ski-in, ski-out option.

◆ Regardless of the season, wander around the resort’s grounds, including a stroll through the 1936 portion of the hotel.

◆ Spend time exploring the quaint shops and restaurants of the nearby town of Sainte-Adèle.
