Overlooking Lac Massawippi, with a private beach, this elegant retreat feels rather like a private estate, with many activities, such as tennis, boating, and bicycling, included in the room rate. Built in 1900, the manor was modeled after George Washington's Mount Vernon. Rooms have a mix of antiques and more modern furniture, richly printed fabrics, and lace trimmings; many have fireplaces and private balconies that overlook the lake. Le Hatley restaurant serves excellent
Quebec cuisine: try the Mullard duck breast or the Appalachian venison loin. There's a tasting menu, including wine, for $90. Home-baked scones, clotted cream, jam, and more than 40 teas and infusions are served at the traditional English afternoon tea.
