The 3 Coziest Hotels in the Garden of Quebec

Joanne Latimer | January 02, 2018

Just one hour outside Quebec, you’ll find dramatic ski hills and lush farmland—the “garden of Quebec,” providing all the city’s restaurants with their local produce. Here are the best hotels and bed and breakfasts for exploring that rich countryside.


Auberge a l’Ancrage

Why it made the list

Ideally located off the main drag in Baie-Saint-Paul, this B&B is a restored red-brick heritage property decorated with a nautical theme. The Titanic room, for example, has vintage newspaper articles about the maritime disaster. The hosts are a charming couple who cook a multi-course breakfast for guests. There’s a peaceful back garden, directly onto River Gouffre, and a wrap-around porch.

Château Mont-Saint-Anne

Why it made the list

Deep in the heart of Quebec ski country lies this hub of winter sports activities. “Ski in, ski out?” Yes, of course—but also skate, sled and cross-country ski. The resort has every kind of room—from modest studios to fully-loaded condos. Energy crackles through the four-season village, which attracts families from across Canada and Europe. A four-sided fireplace keeps it cozy. With a soaring ceiling and a large-scale model of the ski village, the lobby is a welcoming space for après ski.

Hotel Le Germain Charlevoix

Why it made the list

This one-of-a-kind property is loved for its pastoral views and modern pleasures. Built on the site of a former farm run by nuns, this ultra-modern complex has stables, a thermal pool, a spa, an art gallery, a bakery, the chef’s herb garden, and a eucalyptus steam bath. The five buildings on the property are each unique, with a unified Nordic design theme. Rooms have exposed wood and comfy big beds. Guests operating on a smaller budget appreciate the economical dormitory, with showers and no baths.
