We stayed at Le Montagnard (#11) for five days in the winter for a snowshoeing holiday and loved the Domaine.
Here, you wake up to sounds of woodpeckers, the owner Bernard is always ready to suggest fantastic places for breakfast. Also, an owner recommendation, was the snowshoe trails at nearby Val David, then you come back to your cabin's private hot tub, go inside to make a fire in the lovely fireplace, and if you are still in the search for further pleasure, go to your outdoor sauna (which is simply adorable looking)for a while followed by taking a bath in the indoor jet tub: you'll sleep like a log. What a relaxing/exciting/sporty holiday you can have here!
The kitchen has everything you need to make a proper meal, and if you ever get bored, there is a huge variety of games you can borrow from reception. I did not touch the TV but it looked modern and it came with a dvd player. If that was not enough, the domaine, lends snowshoes and cross-country skis and boots free of charge.
The bedding is clean and comfortable. The inside of the chalet feels like your friend's chalet with very homey decor.
I have never met such an accomodating and attentive owner as Bernard, what a difference it is compared to staying at a hotel, the details (such as them providing with balaclavas for the Skidoo users for example) really make you feel at home, welcomed, almost among friends.
The only thing is, smoking is allowed in the chalets, so if you are sensitive to cigarrette smoke, be aware or have a glass of wine, because, well, this is Québec, and I smell cigarrettes everywhere anyway.
The Domaine Sainte Agathe is your only choice in the Laurentians if you are looking for a chalet with private hot tub, fireplace, spacious quarters, and sauna. The rest is just a bonus!
