Christine DeRepentigny,
General Manager
“I’ve been at the Microtel Casselman for almost three years now and there’s not a morning I get up and don’t want to go to work. I have a great team! And I love to meet people.”

Time for a road trip! Where to?
I’d take you for a drive through the countryside roads. They are so peaceful and the fields (I’m married to a farmer!) are beautiful, changing colours with every season. We’d visit a few Popsilos and we’d definitely end up at the St-Albert Cheese Co-operative for good eats and local products and I’d hope to cross a colourful painted cow that’s part of their art exhibit.

“I really appreciate that the hotel is like a second home to some of our guests who come to work in the area. We get to know each other seeing as they stay for a few months. I even feel a hint of nostalgia when they leave.”

Time for a road trip. Where to?
I’d take you to La Forêt Larose for some trekking. It’s a wonderful experience, especially in the pandemic context. The parking lot will be full, but rest assured, in the Forest’s grandeur, the rails never cease to offer moments of peace and stillness. In the summer particularly, I’d choose to go to the bike path in Embrun. The Expérience Café & Smoothie Bar is conveniently located by the path for healthy snacks and treats. My favourite smoothie is the Hulk!

    “We were doing a small trip for a mini vacation, and decided to spend the night here. The check-in was easy and quick. The hotel was adhering to the Covid guidelines. The room was basic, but very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was served in a lunch bag. There are lots of dining options nearby. We enjoyed our stay.”
