Description: Manoir HoveyThe only hotel on the shores of Lake Massawippi, Manoir Hovey is a charming historic property, set in a magnificent manor house, originally built in 1900, and inspired by George Washington's home at Mount Vernon. After a long and eventful history, this magnificent property was purchased by its present owners in 1979, and since then has been offering luxurious accommodation, fine cuisine and unique facilities in a magnificent lakeside setting.
A wonderful spot for relaxing stays in North Hatley, one of Quebec's most picturesque villages, and a haven for artists and artisans, writers, theatre lovers and outdoor enthusiasts of all kinds, Manoir Hovey offers a fabulous range of on-site activities in all seasons. In summer and autumn, guests can choose from kayaking, canoeing or paddle-boarding on the lake, tennis on an illuminated tennis court, and cycling on the resort's fully equipped touring bikes. In winter and spring, options available include snowshoeing, ice skating or ice-fishing. There are a number of excellent golf courses in the region, along with mountain centres for winter sports.
Manoir Hovey's Le Hatley Restaurant offers a bold new approach to Canadian cuisine, with a terroir-driven menu based on seven seasonal flavour profiles created from the finest local and regional products from Quebec's rivers, lakes, fields and forests. The restaurant's award-winning wine list features over 900 labels, with excellent pairings available for every dish. The Tap Room pub is a more informal venue, ideal for cosy meals by the fireside in winter, or al fresco dining by the lake in summer.
