A Little Auberge Beaux Reves and Nordic spa history from Sainte-Adele in the Laurentians.
Built in the late 1940’s or early 1950’s, this original building was a multifamily duplex. Take a drive around the surrounding area and you will find similar stone buildings all with their own unique style. These homes are very unique and typical to this part of Sainte-Adele.
Having gone through multiple owners and various renovations it wasn’t until the late 60’s or early 70’s when an English immigrant converted the multifamily duplex into a single family dwelling by completely opening up one half of the building to create a huge living space open to 3 floors.
This particular property bordering ‘’ Riviere aux mulets’’ river is located on the north end of town on Blvd. Sainte-Adele.
In 1995 the property was purchased and a major renovation was done to get it ready for the opening of a four room bed and breakfast.
In 1998 an extension was added, out back to increase the number of rooms to seven with a superb deck on top facing the river thus bringing the status from bed and breakfast to Inn.
In 2002 a 2nd building was added to the property adding six suites and a loft all with fireplaces, Jacuzzis and right on the river.
In 2009 a change in business strategy brings on the transformation of the three lower rooms to become changing rooms, relaxation room and steam room. The Inn is now open to public for day spa visits.
In 2012 many updates and renovations are done to the main building, including the rooms facing the river as well as the dining room and the vestibule to the steam room. A second sauna, infra-red heated zone and flagstone patio were all added to increase Nordic spa amenities.
Stay tuned as 2013 has many projects already underway such as the completion of a Nordic year round waterfall, private relaxation areas and a unique natural stone bolder hot tub.
