The fire at the Strøm Mont-Saint-Hilaire created a great deal of turmoil amongst the Strøm team, our loyal customers, but also in the Smits family, who built the building, that was once their family home, with their own hands. After the fire, against all expectations, the rooster adorning the roof of the Strøm Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire, was found undamaged.
Looking back at the symbolic of this cult object.
“The house next to the Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire is the house of my grandparents. When my father was young, he was often playing on the neighboring land, which is now the Strøm Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire. As an adult, my father bought the land. At that time, it was completely undeveloped. My parents designed the plans for our family home. My father, with the help of some of his friends, built the entire building, which some years later was converted to a spa by the Dulude family. When the construction was completed, the rooster was installed at the top of the house. Over the years, we have developed a special bond with this symbol for several reasons! First of all, it was my father or my grandfather who had it custom built by a craftsman. Furthermore, our roots are European and the rooster is the emblem of France, it represents our roots and reminds us of where we come from. After the fire last December, we were curious to find out the fate of the famous rooster. And finally we were very happy to learn that it was not destroyed by the fire!” – Frédéricke Smits, daughter of papa Smits and receptionist at the Strøm Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire.
After the fire, on May 11, 2017, Julie Morin, the general manager of Strøm Spa Mont-Saint-Hilaire, was filled with emotion when she was finally able to give this object of great sentimental value back to the Smits family.
The attachment to history and symbolism can be passed on through family, but also through closely knit teams. And the bond that Julie Morin has formed with this figurine is the perfect proof!

The architectural plans for the reconstruction of the Strøm Mont-Saint-Hilaire are currently being finalized. Guillaume Lemoine recently visited our architects to approve the final details on the architectural plans. We are busy preparing the ground for the construction work that will begin this spring. We are very much looking forward to breaking ground!

Today December 26, 2016 at around 9 am a fire started in a dry sauna. The cause of the fire seems to be an electrical failure. Luckily no one got hurt.
The firefighters are presently working to get the fire under control. The new section seems to be safe from the fire. A reconstruction of the reception and the massage and treatment section that were situated in the main building will be done in 2017.
