“Horrible!”
Reviewed 13 June 2012

I can t believe what I ve just read.. I was there for a friends party and booked a room so I wouldn t have to drive ( I live 20 minutes away) i cannot believe the price for what was offered ( nothing). For the same price ( 75 $ + taxes) , you can easily find something so much better in the Laurentians. It s completely overpriced. It should be called an ' Auberge de jeunesse' instead and the price should represent that. The place is old, is badly in need of renovations, the shower was scary, the cleanliness was dougtful and although it is a smoke/free environment, the place smelled of old cigarette ( furniture and rugs). When I checked out, i complained about the price being way too high for what was offered, the gentleman answered that he knew, that I wasn t the first to say so... Great customer service!! Bottom line, for 20$ more, you could book a much classier Auberge and get great service plus a decent breakfast ( not cheap industrial croissants).

We had a fantastic weekend cycling along the p'tit train du nord cycle trail, thanks in part to the wonderful Auberge. It situated right on the cycle path, it couldn't be more convenient.

This place is right out of the 1930's. There is a tiny lobby/reception, and a large "living room" with a gigantic brick fireplace, and a dining room that had oilskin checkered tablecoths. There was a large sign from Canadian Pacific Railway on the wall, and a collection of luggage from the 1930's. The kitchen, which was set up to serve both the dining room and a large hall at the back, had a large commerical fridge with windows - another vintage 1930. Except for the occasional modern touch, like a visa card reader on the fronr desk and an internet connection in a corner, it felt like we were entering the train station hotel from 60 years ago.
The rooms were shabby in a nice way; it looked like they had beed most recently updated in the 1950's. There was a tiny bathroom - when you sat on the toilet, your legs were under the sink. But the large shower didn't have a water saver showerhead, so there was a full blast of water - fantastic after a day on the cycle trail. We had an upgraded room, which meant there was a 10" t.v./dvd combo; other rooms weren't as well equipped. The large windows gave a view of the busy streets and the actual bike path.
Although shabby, the whole place was spotlessley clean, and had no odours or mustiness.
Mona, our hostess, was wonderful, and made us feel at home. She allowed us to keep some food in the kitchen fridge, and to make our own lunches. Saturday night we used the fireplace to make a cozy fire.
You'll hate this place if iyou are expecting Hilton chic, but love it if you want to experience a real getaway.

the bedroom had a metal bureau painted to look like wood, a round mirror

Auberge du P'tit Train du Nord (the correct spelling) is a 19 room Auberge on a linear trail that extends from Montreal into the Laurentian Mountains. It is situated in a residential section in the southern portion of Sainte-Adèle. Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by Nicolas the manager who gave us a quick tour. He proved to be a good source of information as his recommendations for dining (Chez Milot) and shopping (a glass show in Prevost) kept the womenfolk happy.

We had reserved two rooms: Mont-Laurier, a junior suite; and Bellerive, a regular double room that connected to Mont-Laurier. Traveling with my wife and two young ladies it proved to be the perfect arrangement (two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a shared living room in the middle). We found the rooms to be comfortable and clean with a view of the linear trail, petanque courts and the former train station that now serves as bicycle retail/rental shop and cafe.

The auberge served a continental breakfast that included breads, croissants, coffee, OJ and cheese et cetera. We found it quite enjoyable and satisfying.

Also upon Nicolas' suggestion we rented bicycles and rode north on the P'tit Train du Nord linear trail past streams, rapids, lovely vacation properties and serene lakes. The slight grade (<3%) northward allowed us to mostly coast back to our station.

We whole-heartedly recommend Auberge du P'tit Train du Nord as a great base to explore the mountainous area north of Montreal. It is well situated for a cycling vacation and we will not hesitate to stay again in the future. It is not the Ritz-Carlton, but we were not looking for that anyway.
