A stay at Manoir Hovey comes with the promise of an abundance of fresh air in a scenic, unspoiled part of Québec, close to the U.S. This charming manor was built at the turn of the century and modeled on George Washington’s Mount Vernon home. It is nestled in English gardens in a forest on the shores of a lake, and there is a romantic and authentic way of life here. Rates include an array of onsite recreational facilities that make Manoir Hovey a destination in itself. The artful cuisine is enhanced by the wine list, which features 900 wines, and an exceptional selection of Québec’s finest cheeses. A wonderful getaway in all seasons, only 80 minutes from Montréal.
This 5-star historic manor nestles on 35 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and birch forest along the shores of Lake Massawippi near North Hatley, one of Quebec's most picturesque villages. The Manor is a 75-minute drive along the scenic Routes des Vins from Montreal and only 20 minutes from the border with Vermont. In this enchanting setting, the hotel offers thirty-seven elegantly appointed lakeside rooms and suites supplemented by panoramic vistas of gardens, lake and hills all around. Many recreational facilities are available right on site in all seasons and are included in all rates.
Protecting biodiversity and reducing carbon footprint
It is within a radius of 20 to 30 kilometers that Chef Alexandre Vachon finds both his inspiration and most of his ingredients. Heirloom tomatoes and squash, organic vegetables and native berries (haskap berries, sea buckthorn...) find their way to the kitchen of Restaurant Le Hatley throughout the seasons, delivered by the familiar faces of neighboring producers. Not far from there, in the forest, wild mushrooms are picked carefully while a few steps from the kitchen, our garden produces fine herbs and edible flowers that complete a varied menu, representative of the producers and their passion for their region and their land.
