What does one look for in a holiday and especially in an accomodation? My criteria and not necessarily in that order are the 3 P's (ok, I do come from a logistics background!!) price, proximity, politeness and Le Boise Du Lac scores 5 stars on each of these. Compared to some of the big brand hotels/chateau in the area my wallet did not have a big hole at the end of our stay, the motel is located right on lake duhamel, think half the rooms face the lake and the other half dont - you may want to put a 'special' request through if you do need a lake facing room and more likely than not the hosts will be willing to accomodate your request. Fabienne & Vincent are both excellent hosts, smiling, helpful and very patient ! We were a large group of 8 adults and 4 elementary school going kids and I can tell you there was enough to do for all on the motel/private beach premises. The paddle boats/canoes are in great condition and any novice or expert paddler/rower can enjoy these freebies that one will be hard pressed to find in the very 'touristy' resort/village area of mont-tremblant a few miles away.
this said, we spent a day at the resort , again lots of stuff for kids to do. My favorite was the Luge. I recommend taking the pass for 3 rides!!
Coming back to the motel, the only down side I can think of, if at all, was the spread of the breakfast. If muffins, toast, orange juice, cereal , coffee is enough to get you going then you will not have any complaints. I would have thrown in some fruit and eggs but again the kitchen is fully equipped so bring your own provisions and eat one less meal outside! They also have 2 bbq pits and if you request Vincent he can even rig up a camp fire, we could not do this as it rained on the day we were supposed to roast the marshmellows :(
There are no parking fees, bathrooms sizes are decent, mainly they are clean and bathroom linen is changed as per your preferance. Beds are comfortable.
We would go there often if not for the long-ish drive from Southern Ontario!
