Before you come
Make sure that each member of your group (and your relatives, in case of an emergency) has the address, the telephone number and directions to your cottage. There is a map of the sector where the cottages are found on our website. The members of your group can take an online tour of the cottage that you booked on our website at www.chaletsalpins.ca. Please send them this link.
When you get here
Pick up your keys at 369 du Hibou, Stoneham G3C 1S3.
The check-in is for 17h00 and the check-out for 11h00. However if the chalet is ready the day of your check-in, you will have the possibility to arrive earlier. This is a privilege with no extra costs. Please, communicate with us by e-mail or phone the day before your arrival and we will give you the information.
Call us or e-mail us at [email protected] with the address of your cottage and your arrival date. We will send you your check-in time.

Here are some rules for using the hot tub:
- Be careful, the area around the hot tub could be very icy and slippery; use it at your own risk.

How to open the hot tub:
- Lay the metal bar on the cover of the hot tub.
- Fold the first half of the cover back on the second.
- Lift both sections together. The metal bar will hold up the cover.
- It takes two people to do this to avoid damaging the cover.
- Never put the cover on the ground.
- When you are finished, put the cover back in place to prevent cooling, evaporation and contamination of the water.
- Reset the water temperature to 100°F.
- The water in the hot tub was checked before your arrival. It’s up to you to keep it clean.
