Type: Conference Center

Description: Set amidst the maple forest of the Laurentian foothills, this site offers the serenity of nature in close proximity to Quebec City. Originally built as a ski lodge, the Auberge du Mont is now operated by and located on the same site as a private secondary school celebrating 50 years of educational programs. The log-cabin style meeting room provides a charming environment for group activities and free-time mingling. A beautiful lake reflecting the color of the surrounding trees and hiking trails through the maple forest embellish this exceptional site. (See "Free Time" for further description.) Although "Auberge du Mont" literally means "Inn of the Mountain", we are best described as a conference center whose primary mission is that of education. Almost all our clientele come as part of a group, most for educational programs created by our staff. These include Road Scholar, outdoor education programs for school groups, and cultural programs for French immersion students from as far away as British Columbia. Creating outstanding educational experiences offered in an ambiance of friendship and warmth is our main goal.
