Manoir Hovey

575 chemin Hovey, North Hatley, Québec, J0B 2C0, Canada

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 Québec cuisine that follows flavor principles, which vary according to season (e.g., the use of birch trees to make birch syrup in spring; foraging for wild mushrooms, plants and herbs in the summer; local harvests in fall; preserves in winter). Feeling peckish? Freshly made tea and scones are available any time of day.
