July at Le Grand Lodge

As the hotel is buzzing with activity, I am pleased to take this moment to extend my greetings to all of you. Although I have been active with the hotel for many years, I was sad to see my predecessor and cherished friend and colleague
leave us.

And so, it is with great enthusiasm that I look forward to interacting among you once again and trust you will make sure to stop by and see me during your
next stay.

2nd Annual Classic: A Resounding Success!

We are extremely pleased with the success of our June 18 Golf Classic; more than 80 keen golfers joined us on the lush greens of La Belle Golf Course and 110 for cocktails and dinner which allowed us to donate $2583.50 to the Club de patinage artistique de Mont-Tremblant. From your comments, everyone had a wonderful time. Congratulations to Marcel for organizing it all and to the foursome who won the tournament with a score of 11 under par: Richard Lacasse, David Tremblay, Michel Naud and Dany Delane. See you again next year!

Grand Music!

As you may have heard, we are partnering with the Festival de musique des Hautes Laurentides. Their concert series has just started with an impressive roster of international artists, plus many of the concerts are free. Our chef, David, has prepared a special menu where you can create your own 3 course Table d’hôte at only $35, including a pre-dinner cocktail, and we are providing great rates for your stay.

If you plan on attending the Tremblant International Blues Festival, we will have a shuttle service directly to the site. See all the details below for both these offers.

I look forward to being your host in our small corner of paradise.

Warmest regards,

Michael Kucyniak
General Manager

Put your best feet first!

Summer is here, time to put away our shoes and socks and bring out our favorite sandals. Our tired feet are usually dry and the heels cracked – what better time to revitalize them with our specially designed Foot Treatment. Start with a gentle exfoliation to remove all the dead skin cells then feel the skin come alive with the deep hydration wrap and finish with a massage to provide a full relaxing effect. Not only will your feet benefit but your whole body will feel invigorated!

I look forward to pampering your feet!
