Located only 75 minutes from Montreal, Manoir Hovey is a five-star Relais & Chateaux property on the shores of Lake Massawippi, just outside of North Hatley, one of Quebec’s most picturesque villages. Manoir Hovey is truly one of Canada’s most charming and romantic inns. The Manor offers 37 beautifully appointed bedrooms and suites, and hosts year-round activities, conferences, weddings, and special events. An award-winning four diamond restaurant, Le Hatley, showcases contemporary Quebec cuisine complemented by an extensive wine list. Overlooking the lake and surrounded by English gardens, the dining room has a tranquil setting with breathtaking views.
Now guests can enjoy new experiences for the coming year, including complimentary foraging tours on property with the chef, every weekend in season. The following are foraged right on Manoir Hovey land:
The Flying Bicyle
The VéloVolant is innovative and spectacular. Soar through the treetops on a suspended recumbent bicycle which travels only as fast as your pedal strokes; you control the speed. VéloVolant is the highest of its kind, supported by towering maples and pines connected by high performance cable. The 1000-meter circuit meanders across a mountainside passing through ravines and over waterfalls. This is an experience that will take your breath away. Package includes one night stay, entry to Velo Volant, a picnic, four-course dinner at Le Hatley Restaurant, and full gourmet breakfast (gratuities on meals included). Prices start at $275 (CAD) during high season, per person.
