A rejuvenating getaway in the Laurentians, Quebec.
As Montreal is about a five hour drive from Toronto, Justin and I decided to road trip it to Quebec for a few days. Seeking a bit of relaxation before our jaunt around the city, we escaped to Saint-Adele in the Laurentians, a region in Quebec that includes the Laurentian mountains. Auberge Beaux Reves Et Spa was the ideal place for an overnight stay to get away from it all.

THE SPA EXPERIENCE
Auberge Beaux Reves looked more like a home than a hotel. The accommodation looked more like a massive, rustic cabin with exposed wooden beams and wooden staircases.
At the communal area, you could relax by the fireplace, play board games, or gather for a drink with friends. Connected to the living room was the kitchen with several tables, and large windows with views of the outdoor spa.
After we checked in and tossed our bags into our room, Justin and I went for our hour long Swedish massages. This was actually the first time that either of us went for massages in our lives!
We were led by our two female masseuses outside to a separate cabin, set up with two massage tables. The massage oils smelled so soothing, and we felt truly pampered from head to toe. It’s the perfect way to unwind after a long car ride. At this moment, we truly felt like we were on vacation.
Our room at the Auberge Beaux Reves et Spa reminded us of a bed and breakfast. The room was tastefully decorated with pictures, bits of lace, and flowers. The bathroom looked newly renovated with a walk-in shower.
However, my favourite part of the room was the private balcony. The balcony had a table and a couple of chairs, with a gorgeous view of the entire backyard. We could look out to the Nordic spa from our room. We were surrounded by tons of tall trees and beyond them, a river. If it weren’t for the constant flowing water from the hot tub, we would have heard the rushing waters of the river. It was very quiet and peaceful, and we ended up keeping the patio doors open at night so we could listen to the water as we fell asleep.
As we didn’t have much time the evening before, we saved the Nordic Spa for the following morning. But, we woke up at 6:30 in the morning to the sound of pouring rain and thunderstorms. Oh no! Well, we weren’t going to let this put a damper on anything.
We went back to bed, and woke up around 8:00am. After waking up and enjoying a little bit of a complimentary breakfast (the only thing for vegans was peanut butter and toast and some fruit), we ventured down to the spa. Thankfully by this point, it stopped raining a little bit. Besides, once you’re in the spa, who cares if it rains – you’re already wet!
For most of the time, we actually ended up having the entire spa to ourselves. The hot tub was huge. It was in such a peaceful, natural setting with big rocks all around. The view of the river was wonderful, too. We swam around and relaxed by some of the hot tub jets for a nice massage.
Overall, we had a wonderful stay at Auberge Beaux Reves in the Laurentians. The Nordic Spa and massages were definitely the highlights here. If you’d like to be pampered and immersed in nature, this is the place for you.
