Autumn Magic: Chez Montebello, Québec
By Jane and Dave Finn
Montebello Quebec – It’s the first week in October, my favourite time of year. The days are still warm and sunny but there’s a bit of a nip in the air at night. The leaves are turning and the trees that line the road to Montebello are a riot of colour; brilliant orange, burning yellow and blazing red. Breathtaking to say the least but even Mother Nature has some competition in this neck of the woods.
The World’s Largest Log Lodge
Venerable is the word that comes to mind as we drive through the portico to the main entrance of the Fairmount Le Chateau Montebello. The impressive hand-hewn, log lodge was built in 1930 and is reportedly the largest structure of its kind, in the world.
ATV Adventure at Camp Explora in Montebello Quebec – by Laura Byrne-Paquet
Montebello, Quebec – I have to admit, I was a bit nervous when I saw how my 16-year-old daughter Stephanie and I would be exploring the wooded trails around Montebello, Quebec.
Our vehicle for the expedition resembled a bright yellow golf cart on steroids. Rémi Tremblay, owner of Camp Explora in Montebello, Quebec, unplugged the electric ATV from its outdoor outlet and reminded us to put on the astronaut-style helmets he’d given us.
