Auberge de la Montagne Coupée

No Comments | Tags: , ,

Encompassing a boutique design with only 47 accommodations, Auberge de la Montagne Coupée located in St.-Jean-de-Matha (only an hour from Montreal), fully embraces a cozy, welcoming mountain ambiance.

Auberge means “Inn” in French and Montagne Coupée means “Cut Mountain,” a reference to the shape of the mountain from the summit down to the L’Assomption River below. The views from the rear of the property and along the picturesque walking paths that wind down into town are magnificent, providing guests with a body and soul awakening just by standing and breathing it all in.

The Auberge feels like you’ve been invited to someone’s home at every turn from the warm colors to the comfortable furniture, open floor plan, floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwoods, intricate detailing and most of all, the warm and welcoming staff.

What they call their “regular’ rooms are actually very inviting, spacious, and beautifully furnished rooms with two queen beds and intimate touches of home. They also offer Luxury, Superior, and Superior Plus Suites with upscale fixtures, two-person Jacuzzi tubs, glass enclosed showers and other luxury accoutrement.

Outside, great care has been bestowed upon the landscaping with multi-hued plants and flowers, verdant plants and trees—most of it from the natural setting—foot bridges, ponds, waterfalls, and so forth. It’s an apt compliment to the wealth of activities offered here and close by from tennis to hiking, golf, cross country skiing, horseback riding, snowmobiling and other activities.

Facial skin cleansing, full body massages, hand and foot paraffin treatments, pressotherapy, exfoliation, manicure and pedicure services are among the delights found in their Spa – many of which can be combined in one of their special Lodging/Spa packages.

I enjoyed one of the finest gastronomic meals I’ve ever had in their restaurant which features what they call high quality ‘‘ancestral cuisine.’’ Think liverwurst and black pudding flavored with fig and porto, cauliflower couscous and anise crumbles; Nagano pork cheek with mushrooms, rustic cream and mashed Yukon gold potatoes; filet mignon with Amerindian sauce with root vegetables and seasonal squash curry; and pappardelle with rabbit confit, Romanoff sauce flavored with sagebrush, and prosciutto chips. And that’s just the beginning!

Auberge Montagne Coupée offers an upscale yet low key environment peppered with dramatic natural beauty, amazing culinary fare, fine body and skin treatments and an incredible overall experience at every level, at very reasonable prices given the quality, professionalism and expertise.
