With gorgeous views of Quebec’s Lake Massawippi, Manoir Hovey is the ideal year-round destination —even more perfect framed by fall foliage. Modeled after George Washington’s Mount Vernon home, it’s located less than an hour-and-a-half drive from Montreal. The Relais & Chateaux property — winner of Les Grands Prix du Tourisme Québécois 2014 — encompasses more than 20 acres of woodland and English gardens, faced by lakeshore. Most of the 37 guestrooms and suites provide panoramic views of the water. Individually decorated, rooms are fitted with Nespresso coffee machines, large flat-screen televisions, thick Frette towels and toiletries by L’Occitane. Configurations include combinations of private balconies, fireplaces and therapeutic soaking tubs.
Adding to its stellar offerings, the resort recently partnered with Éminence Organic Skin Care from Hungary. The organic, handcrafted products are featured in customized facials and body treatments in the peaceful spa. Other indulgences can be found in Le Hatley restaurant overlooking the lake. Chefs Roland Menard and Francis Wolf serve modern Quebec cuisine, accented by handcrafted regional cheeses and a wine list boasting 700 labels. For casual fare, the Tap Room Pub offers an intimate setting replete with antiques, beamed ceilings and an enormous brick fireplace made for snowy Canadian winter nights.
