Gîte du Mont-Albert -- For a resort with a 4 star rating, it is hard to beat the Gîte du Mont-Albert. This mountain lodge resort is run by the Quebec Parks Network (SEPAQ). If you take a package deal, you will get luxurious accommodation plus breakfast and 3 course dinners cooked by a chef. The chef is able to accommodate any dietary requests, even vegan. The Gîte rooms are spacious and all have magnificent views over Mont Albert. The package deal works out to be very reasonable - as at 2007, a 5 day package per person during winter a little under $600. During winter, the lodge offers many skiing and snowshoeing trails, many of which commence from the site, meaning that you can leave your car and completely relax. In summer, these become hiking trails. Be warned, the rooms are without TV, to help you truly relax and enjoy the great outdoors surrounding you. There is also a pool during summer (completely snowed in during winter) and a sauna all year round. The front entrance area features many places to sit and while away the evenings with puzzles, games, reading, alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages from the bar and delicious snacks. All in all, it is an amazing place to stay and given all that you get for the price, incredibly reasonable.
