This Designer Brings A Splash Of Blue To A Lac-Supérieur Chalet


Montrealers Marie-Claude Hamelin and Marc Godin had been renting chalets in the Laurentians for 20 years before they finally decided to build their own in 2020. Just a 10-minute drive from Mont-Tremblant, Que., the 3,000-square-foot, four-season vacation house was already under construction when the couple brought on designer Jean Stéphane Beauchamp to help make the space even more vibrant and functional.

Marie-Claude and Marc, who work in accounting and finance, respectively, wanted a weekend retreat for themselves but also for their adult children, so they could all ski, bike and play tennis, depending on the season. “Spending time here is on a first come, first served basis, but each of our kids has a bedroom,” says Marc. “And, eventually, this will become a three-generation chalet.”

While the chalet is a retreat for the family, as well as for its future generations, it also hearkens back to iconic Quebec traditions. As a child, Marc’s godfather would take him to the sugar shack on a horse-drawn sleigh to tap the maple trees. Marc wanted the interior of the house to be clad in wood to recall those quaint cabins. “The oak gives a warm feeling in the winter, and it feels nice in the summer,” he says. “This chalet is my way of honouring my roots.”
