And so I find myself at Chateau Montebello Quebec -should you ever find yourself contemplating a weekend sequestered away from the distractions of Ottawa or Montreal – do consider this very pleasant retreat.
The promotional material offered by the Hotel website does not do justice to the resort. The entire experience, in my view, has been well calculated to inspire maximum relaxation.
How to get there:
By Car – 401 east towards Montreal. At exit 721 take Hwy 416 towards Ottawa. Enter Ottawa and join the 417 east towards Montreal. Exit at PineGlenn and head north towards Carling Avenue. Join the Ottawa River Parkway from Carling and take the Island Park Drive bridge towards Aylmer Quebec – follow signs for highway 50 east towards Montreal. Leave 50 at Thurso and take Quebec Highway 317 south and then join 148 east towards Montreal. Through Pleasance and Papineauville, to Montebello. Look for the signs for Chateau Montebello as soon as you enter the town.
