Eric – Blue Cottage

Very spacious, good for a large family or a group of friends. It could be combined with a complete downstairs suite for a very large group. Alain is very helpful, completely bilingual and a super nice guy. He can also sell you discounted Mont Ste-Marie ski passes, as competitive as Groupon or pre-season discounts, that is a bonus as no long term planning is required. Short drive to the mountain, less than 10 minutes. If you want fancy and modern then Alain’s other property Resort Lac Ste-Marie is probably a better fit, toured it before, it is very nice. If you are fine with an older more cottage-like experience and the odd broken or worn out thing, then the tons of flexible space to hang out with a group of friends makes this place really hard to beat. I have stayed here twice and would stay again, all things considered it works well for small groups.
