“Terrific stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2011

Denis and Veronique are wonderful hosts. The food was fabulous with three courses for every breakfast. Having a little taste of dessert with each meal gave us just the right attitude adjustment to take our smiles to the slopes. The rooms are tastefully decorated, spacious, clean and comfortable. We will definitely go back.

My husband and I stayed at L'Escale du Nord for my birthday weekend. To say the least, it was truly beyond our expectations! Denis and Véronique are a lovely, very friendly couple, and warm, welcoming hosts. We instantly felt at ease and comfortable in their charming home. The quality of the bed&breakfast is impeccable, from the theme of wood that covers their entire house, to the huge cinema screen and vast collection of DVD's in their 'Cinema Room,' and finally their impressive Game Room which included a convenient kitchenette. We stayed in a romantic, cozy room called Paris, which was incredibly clean, very comfortable, and beautiful. The breakfast the next morning, served by the lovely Denis, was also very impressive, and satisfying. With regret, we only stayed one night, but we definitely wish we stayed longer. We will without a doubt go back again soon to enjoy a few nights in L'escale du Nord, and we recommend this Bed&Breakfast to any travelers to Mont-Tremblant. We assure you, you will love it and there will be no disappointments.
Thanks again, Denis and Véronique, for being such wonderful hosts, and for making us feel at home. It was the perfect birthday weekend! See you again soon!

My friend and I booked a two night stay at L'Escale du Nord and we were both very satisfied.
Denis and Veronique welcomed us in their wonderful home. It is an amazing place. Our room (Grasse) was very comfortable and clean. We had access to everything in the home (spa, sauna, cinema room, etc.) We also had a massage session on site.
We enjoyed our breakfasts which included an entrée, main dish and sweet touch to complete it.
Everything was perfect and we recommend L'Escale du Nord to everyone who wishes to stay in Mont-Tremblant in a wonderful and relaxing place.
Veronique, Denis, thank you for everything!

We went for a 4 day stay in Mont-Tremblant and picked this B&B based on the reviews. We are very glad, we did because it was really great. Most of all we enjoyed it because Denis and his wife were very charming, nice, helpful, and friendly hosts. It also "helped" that the B&B was of really good quality. They have everything you can wish for, including a hot tub, a pool and a home cinema. Rooms were super, too.

We had pre-booked Escale Du Nord after finding their website on a Quebec Tourism, and we were not disappointed. The house itself is absolutely stunning as well as the grounds that it is set in. We stayed in the Nantes room, one of five rooms decorated with the theme of the city/town that they are named after, all of which are places that Denis and Veronique lived, before they moved to Canada. Ours was beautifully decorated with an ocean feel and was extremely spacious with a good-sized bathroom.

We were greeted by Denis when we first arrived, who gave us the tour of the house, which has 2 guest lounge areas, a cinema room, a guest kitchen with games room (table football and a pinball machine) and a sauna. We decided after having eaten out for the duration of our trip that we would buy salads and use the guest kitchen which was a very reasonable $10 per day, this also enabled us to keep cool drinks in the fridge, which was fantastic!

Breakfast was delicious, a 3 course surprise each morning, that had been thoughtfully prepared. We especially enjoyed the Cassoulet D’Escale, which was just fantastic. From the veranda where we ate, we had views of the deer eating less than 10metres away from us.

As well as the sightseeing of the area, we were able to relax by the pool and use the hot tub, which was great on our one cloudy day!

Denis and Veronique were extremely welcoming, friendly, and on hand to help at all times if we needed any assistance with anything. We both especially loved Denis’s collection of old sports memorabilia, and we were particularly impressed when he went out of his way to show us his rugby memorabilia as we are keen rugby fans!

All in all we had a fantastic 3-night stay at Escale Du Nord, and if we are ever back in the area we will definitely be staying there again. We both believe that this should definitely be number one B&B for the Mont Tremblant area!

Merci beaucoup Denis et Veronique!!!

When we arrived at the B&B we were taken away by the beauty of the site and their home! We were greeted by Denis and his wife Véronique and they were absolutely charming.
In the backyard, you wake up and see deers! They feed them daily and they get quite close!
Breakfast was delicious! Its not your usual bacon and eggs, but instead, a five course meal of European-inspired delicacies!
We will definitely return
Thanks for the lovely experience!

Gite l'Escale du Nord was a little corner of heaven. Located on a beautiful wooded lot, you can experience a "back to nature" feeling while being less than 5 minutes from the village of Tremblant and less than 10 minutes from the mountain resort of Mont Tremblant .
The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. The best part however were all the "added features". Unlike most B&B's where you're restricted to your room or a small common area, l'Escale du Nord has numerous options to offer guests: pool area, hot tub, 2 common areas (living rooms with fireplaces), large porch/deck, games room, movie room, sauna and massage room. Only 3 years old, and winners of several tourism awards, it really is a wonderful spot.
The hosts Denis and Veronique Roussel are warm and welcoming, with a wonderful sense of humour.
Our breakfasts were delicious, home made, 3 course affairs: fresh fruit to start, a main entree (quiche) and then a "sweet finish"....not huge in portion but very, very tasty. And great coffee too!
Definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a perfect getaway spot!
