Welcome kit

for condo owners

Welcome

Wahhoooo! There you have it!

You are a newly proud owner of an amazing condo at Le Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant, the chic family chalet, the perfect space for wellbeing, relaxation, and discovery. And it’s great! The condo structure has it so that you’re not having to complete the tedious tasks of opening and closing the chalet come spring and winter! The condo rather ensures a home base where it’s possible to experience spring’s renewed energy, summer’s warm and magical nights, fall’s comforting colours, winter’s fairy-tale scenery and every day, the campfire’s warm welcome on the beach or by the rink, in the central lobby or in the comfort of your own condo unit, your second home. We’re delighted to welcome you as new owners.

On May 31, 2023, Activar Hôtels and Messier, Savard and Associés (MSA) partnered to acquire Le Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant. The hotel and its common spaces are managed by Activar Hôtels’ operational team. The building, its evolution and the land it sits on, are managed in partnership by Activar Hôtels and MSA.

This guide is meant to inform you on essential questions you might have on your condo, its management, and your experience as an owner. The agreement between the condominium syndicate and Activar Hôtels and MSA sets the frame for the relationship and the actions taken by all parties. You can find a copy of this agreement online, at the end of this page. We hope our guide will prove to be handy and be a happy welcome.

Welcome home!

Reservations

Twice a year, you will receive an advance booking notification that will allow you to confirm the dates during which you want to occupy your unit for both the summer and winter periods. You have the right to use your unit for 36 days per calendar year; 18 during the summer period and 18 during the winter period.

The summer period (May 1st to October 31st)

  • Notice to be sent, at the latest, on January 1st.
  • You must confirm that dates you want to book, at the latest, by February 1st.

The winter season (November 1st to April 30th)

  • Notice to be sent, at the latest, on May 1st.
  • You must confirm that dates you want to book, at the latest, by June 1st.

Certain restrictions apply and are mentioned in the notice. Other rules also apply. Please see the condominium syndicate collective agreement for further details.


Spontaneous bookings

If you must make a spontaneous booking, you can contact the director of accommodations (see Key contacts section). If the hotel is more than 80% occupied, spontaneous bookings will not be accepted.


Cancellations

If you have a need to cancel a booking, this can be done with any member of the front desk team. In the case of a cancellation, less than 48 hours before the guaranteed arrival time (4 p.m. on the booked day), the unit will not be returned to the management pool for rental and therefore, there will be no revenues generated for the originally booked date(s). If the cancellation is made more than 48 hours before the guaranteed arrival time, the booking can be cancelled without any penalty.


Restaurants and common spaces

Le Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant offers three choices of restaurants. As a condominium owner, you benefit from a 15% discount on all of your purchases at any of these three restaurants.

Chez Borivage restaurant

For dinner (usually Tuesday to Saturday, from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m.*)

Our meals are concocted with fine aromas, stunning presentations, exquisite flavours and they are served in a relaxing ambiance. We honour Quebec’s culinary diversity, and our wine list offers you an array of choices to enhance your dish.

*The restaurant may be closed due to hotel occupancy or private functions.

For breakfast (served daily from at 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.)

Breakfast can be served buffet-style or à la carte, depending on hotel occupancy. The breakfast buffet offers a variety of choices: cold platters, hot platters, sweet or salty selections, topped off with an omelette station at which a chef will cook you a custom-made omelette.

The Whisky Bar

(usually opens every day at 4 p.m.)

Located near our prestigious stone fireplace, our Whisky Bar is the ideal setting to have an excellent meal from our varied bistro menu and to enjoy a Scotch or one of our signature cocktails (with or without alcohol) in a comfortable ambiance.

Yolo beach bar

(Open over the summer season only: from the Victoria Day weekend to the Thanksgiving weekend, from noon to 4 p.m.)

Hit the patio on Lac Ouimet for beverages and beach-style snacks under the sun.

Banquet services for events

Le Grand Lodge’s team has concocted a diversified menu for events hosted at the hotel. Many formats are available: an array of appetizers, multicourse meals, a service bar set-up and special requests. As a condominium owner, you have the benefit of renting event rooms at no cost for your group events or you can pass on the benefit to any group you refer to the hotel. Please direct any event requests to general management and they will forward the information to the proper person.

  • 15% discount on all your purchases at any of the three on-site restaurants
