COVID-19 Safety Measures
For everyone's safety!

Re-opening Plan

All the measures implemented are required by the different authorities, in particular the Public Health expertise and reference center of Quebec.

These measures will allow us to take care of your health as well as that of our employees. Please be advised that we have respected the public health directives issued by the federal and provincial governments. We are also committed to upholding these guidelines while continuing to offer the warm and welcoming experience that our visitors expect from the Auberge du Lac Taureau.

You will have to submit to a health questionnaire before you can enter our establishment. If you are experiencing symptoms or are likely to have been exposed to Covid-19, unfortunately we will be obliged to ask you to return at a later date, for the health and safety of all.

The entire team is following the situation very closely and will adjust according to the recommendations of the Public health expertise and reference centre of Quebec and government authorities on the measures to be taken to prevent the transmission of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Our customer service department remains available for any questions or concerns regarding the current situation. We are grateful for the support we receive from you every day and look forward to welcoming you back to our beautiful Inn after several weeks of waiting! 

Please note that for people who purchased or won a gift certificate between November 1, 2019 and March 16, 2020, gift certificates will be extended for 6 months.
