Overview

On the Ottawa River, with its own marina and within a 10-minute walk of Manoir-Papineau National Historic Site and Sanctuaire Notre-Dame d'Etchemin, this AAA 4-Diamond hotel is the world's largest log structure. The main centerpiece is the impressive hexagonal rotunda with 65-foot stone fireplace.

Founded in 1930, this rustic and historic hotel may be showing its age but is still beaming with charm. From the sprawling grounds to the chalet-inspired decor of small but comfortable rooms, Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello is memorable inside and out.

On-site dining options vary; fine-dining at Aux Chantignoles open for breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch, bistro fare and cocktails at Seigneurie Bar open daily from 5:30 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. The outdoor barbeque on the terrace at Le Riverain is open evenings throughout the summer.

With panoramic windows overlooking the marina, the hotel's spa with center fireplace feature registered massage therapists and offer treatments such as maple sugar body scrubs and green blanket body wraps. Adjacent, the 75-foot indoor heated pool is encompassed by red cedar logs and floor-to-ceiling windows.

During the summer months the resort has a host of activities included in the CA$25 resort fee, ranging from stand-up paddle boarding, pedal boating, cycling, canoeing and hiking along the five-kilometre trails within the resort. There's also an 18-hole Golf Club, designed in 1929 with views of the surrounding Laurentians, as well as family-friendly fun such as on-site weekend movie nights, arts and craft at Bello's Club and nearby horseback riding.
