Map & Directions

The hotel is less than two hours from Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport by taxi and two hours from Burlington International Airport. It's a rural location, so unless you’re planning to stay on resort it’s best to bring a car, and parking is freely available on site.

Set in 35 acres of pretty gardens overlooking Lake Massawippi, the AAA 4-Diamond Manoir Hovey is a quiet retreat made for romantic getaways. The property began life in the 19th century, modeled after President Washington’s summer mansion Mount Vernon, and is now an intimate Relais & Chateaux resort with only 37 rooms, a first-rate restaurant and the atmosphere of a private estate. Staff are welcoming and friendly, known for remembering guests’ names.

Populated by British loyalists at the end of the 1700s, the Eastern Townships still feel "more English than England," notes The Guardian, despite being only a 90-minute drive from bustling Montreal. This is rolling farm country, complete with clapboard churches and wooded slopes, and the pretty little town of North Hatley fits right in, complete with its bakery, antique shops and century-old architecture.

Beyond the romantics, epicures come from across the country to try the award-winning Quebecois cuisine (Lonely Planet raves that it’s one of the best in the area). Don’t miss the heaving cheese cart, overflowing with local raw-milk and artisan cheeses. The more relaxed option is a cozy pub, complete with lakeside terrace. There’s an on-site gym, and a range of activities to try, from cycling, kayaking, tennis and swimming in the summer to snowshoeing and skating in the winter. Best of all, they are all included in the room price.

Rooms are all unique -- the country-style rooms are prettily furnished with antique beds, floral prints and checked fabrics, while more modern rooms have sharp furniture and glass-topped tables. Many come with whirlpool baths and some have fireplaces. Opt for a room facing the lake for picturesque vistas -- the best have terraces with front row views of the sunset.

Enjoyed Most: I was there a little out of season and the weather was not great but I didi enjoy the solitude and beauty of the setting
Other Comments: dinner and the service were excellent however I found the service too be a little too fawning. eg I would prefer my bottle of wine to be closer in order that I may pour it as I please. It seems senseless for a waiter to pour a dribble simply for the sake of doing so. Also too much hovering around spoils the moment. I'm not trying to make a big deal of this, it is simply an observation and I realize that it may be a quirk of mine. I very much enjoyed both the food and service overall.

Enjoyed Most: Ambiance, very attentive and courteous staff. lovely setting, beautiful room -KING, fireplace, whirlpool tub and complete water view. Ample space. Interior and exterior fireplaces going all the time -very romantic!
Other Comments: Very limited facilities both there and at the small town of north Hatley close by due to season -somewhat expected, however Manoir Hovey Pub was closed completely which left only the main dining room as the place to eat or enjoy a drink ( very expensive ) and of course not a place where you would hang out with a few friends.... We were impressed overall -a tribute to it's character and tranquility -perfect 'total relaxation' for a couple of days. Future guests should be well aware there is no 'Hot tub 'area -interior or exterior and that the nearest town is a 20 minute drive....

Enjoyed Most: Lovely grounds. All staff we encountered were well versed in friendly and efficient service. Admired their ability to switch from French to English very quickly. The room was lovely and tastefully decorated.
Other Comments: Dinner menu, while well executed was long on presentation and short on quantity. Thank goodness for dessert. It was outstanding.
