    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Nestled along Lake Massawippi's shores – about 85 miles east of Montreal – Manoir Hovey impresses guests with its luxurious amenities and serene ambiance. Each room comes equipped with L'Occitane toiletries, flat-screen TVs and Nespresso coffee makers, but if you're looking to inspire a little extra romance, spring for a treetops suite outfitted with a king-sized canopy bed and wood-burning fireplace. According to previous guests, swinging in a hammock or taking in the scenery by canoe both make for pleasant ways to while away warmer afternoons. During the winter, you can snowshoe and cross-country ski along neighboring trails. And a meal at Le Hatley Restaurant, which serves locally sourced Quebec fare, is a must-visit according to previous patrons. For a more casual dining experience, head to the Tap Room Pub, which dishes up lighter entrees like burgers. Members of Relais & Châteaux's exclusive Club 5C program may receive extras, such as room upgrades, for staying here.

    Cozying up to Whistler's picturesque mountains and Nita Lake's scenic shores, this property makes a convenient home base for skiers.

Meanwhile, in spring and summer, you can take advantage of complimentary kayak, canoe, bike and paddleboard rentals. But if it's pampering you seek, head straight to the Spa at Nita Lake Lodge, which offers treatments like hot stone massages and vitamin C brightening facial. At the end of the day, steal away to your spacious suite, furnished with a gas fireplace, a king-sized bed, a glass-enclosed rain shower and a deep soaking tub.

    This Hilton outpost sits about 5 miles north of downtown Ottawa in Gatineau, Quebec.
