Montebello Quebec for Ottawa Road Trips

Food, nature and history at Montebello

It’s October, my favourite time of year. The trees that line the road to Montebello are a kaleidoscope of oranges, yellows and reds, but even Mother Nature has some competition in this neck of the woods.

The World’s Largest Log Resort

Venerable is the word that comes to mind as my husband Dave and I drive under the portico to the main entrance of the Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello. The hand-hewn log lodge, built in 1930, is one of the largest structures of its kind in the world.

The lobby is rustic, subdued and genteel—a charming blend of sophistication and warmth. That’s due in part to the massive six-sided stone fireplace that dominates the lobby, and partly to the staff, who are truly delighted to welcome you. Perhaps that’s why Condé Nast ranks the hotel among Canada’s top 20 resorts.
