468. Quebec 2016 | Fairmont Chateau Montebello

Fairmont Chateau Montebello
After several nights at Au Chalet en Bois Rond, it was unfortunately time to leave and head back to Toronto. On the drive back we stayed for a night at Fairmont Chateau Montebello. I attended one of their press events a few years ago here in Toronto. Ever since then, I've always wanted to visit...& I'm glad I finally did!

So on our trip we went from our little log cabin to Le Chateau Montebello - considered to be the world's largest log cabin. I love the rustic style and cozy atmosphere in there. Definitely a great place for a winter vacation. When you enter the lobby, you are greeted with a huge stone fireplace in the middle. Lots of people lounge around the sofas relaxing.

Front desk is a small area off to the side. It was quite busy when we arrived, but the check in was a quick and seamless process. The staff were really friendly and helpful. After checking us in, they booked a dinner reservation for us at their restaurant.

The hotel area is surrounded by a lot of nature so they have numerous on-site activities. Unfortunately we didn't have time to try any of them. I wish we had stayed an extra night here. They have dogsledding, cross country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, ice skating, etc. There's also a ton of summer activities as well so it's a great place to stay year-round.

It's located about an hour away from Montreal and two hours away from Mont Tremblant (where we went for a day - more about this in an upcoming post!). If you're ever around the area, I would recommend a stay!

Fairmont Montebello Jacuzzi Suite
We got one of their Jacuzzi Rooms. They have 6 of these suites in total. There's a living room area along with the bedroom, and a jacuzzi beside the bed. The doors in there were pretty cool. They were like castle style wooden doors.

We were a bit surprised though that all of them were located in the lower level which meant that the windows were small and too high up to look out of, and the view would just be the ground outside. I like having the jacuzzi room but I would've preferred a nicer view for booking a premium suite.

Overall I really loved the suite though. The nature-inspired furnishings made it really cozy and welcoming. The jacuzzi was a fun experience and they had really nice bathrobes (always a huge plus for me!).

After dropping off our luggage, we went for a quick walk around the grounds. They have a separate building for the spa/pool/gym (which is conveniently connected to the main building through an underground tunnel though).

Fairmont Montebello Aux Chantignoles
Then we went for dinner at their restaurant, Aux Chantignoles. I really enjoyed that meal. I'll devote an entire post to it next time!

  1. What a great hotel! The jacuzzi in the room is cool, I only ever had that once in Las Vegas at the Planet Hollywood Towers. I agree though that a nice view would also have been preferable for me. Looking forward to your next post about the restaurant.
