Le Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant is exactly that. “

Le Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant opened its doors in 1999. This full service 4 star four-season hotel and conference center is an all-suite resort destination situated 3 minutes from the famed Mont-Tremblant ski resort, ranked #1 ski destination in Eastern North America 10 years in a row by Ski Magazine. Built on the shores of one of the largest fresh water lakes in the region, its impressive Scandinavian style log structure was carefully crafted with Canadian pine logs and boasts a 32 foot high stone fireplace, pool, sauna, steam, spa treatments, fitness facility, and year round outdoor whirlpool. 

“We know our association with DHRI is going to greatly help us make that next step. Distinguished Management brings with it not only operational expertise, but also the ability to market on a broader world-wide stage,” comments Michel Garnier, General Manager of Le Grand Lodge Mont-Tremblant. “With the success we have had and occupancy rates reaching higher than our projected goals, we are starting Phases II & III of our development project. The Tremblant area is in full expansion and DHRI recognizes the potential in our product. We are truly thrilled about this new partnership and trust in our combined expertise.”
