If you are looking for a different and innovative alternative for your next teambuilding activity or corporate retreat, it might be worth looking at what the Presidents’ Suites has to offer. Permit yourself and your team to stay outside of the box and you might find that you are now able to think outside the box.
Located in the picturesque community of Haileybury, Presidents’ Suites’ historical homes are perched along the shore of beautiful Lake Temiskaming in the City of Temiskaming Shores. The area is centrally located, being less than a few hours away from Sudbury, North Bay, and Timmins, and Rouyn-Noranda and Val D’Or, Que.
The century-old homes were built and owned by Temiskaming’s early silver-mining and lumber barons. The Presidents’ Suites offer you high-end accommodation, based more on the concept of house/apartment-style living rather than that of a hotel, making them the perfect venue for your business travels, teambuilding activities, or corporate retreat. With their three large homes, 19 rooms are available along with stylish conference and breakout rooms.
The award-winning homes offer distinctly unique features. Local art on the walls and local books on the coffee tables are complemented by period furniture, fabrics and décor. On top of the historical charm of the homes, large decks overlooking Lake Temiskaming, barbecues, hot tubs, and fire pits are just the little extras that really differentiate the Presidents’ Suites from a more traditional hotel-type meeting venue.
At the Presidents’ Suites, you and your employees are treated like family and friends, and all aspects of your stay are tailored to your exact needs. Employees who feel appreciated are more motivated, more creative.
Throughout the years, the Presidents’ Suites have developed experiences that can be lived by your group. From their historical evenings and scavenger hunts to outings with local entrepreneurs that can offer experiences from hiking to Devil’s Rock, to foraging in the forest, to learning about Indigenous culture, or discovering your artistic side with spontaneous art classes. A round of golf at the Haileybury historic and scenic golf course is also possible. A network of bilingual resources can help facilitate your sessions and workshops. Different meal options can also be arranged with local caterers, or if you decide to prepare your own meal as a team activity, everything is there for you.
