Welcome to Fairmont Le Château Montebello

Retreat to the charming countryside of Quebec!

Please note that our indoor tennis courts are temporarily closed.

Quiet, private and peaceful — our exclusive resort manages to feel both grand and cozy at the same time. A Bucket List destination in itself, Fairmont Le Château Montebello is known for its rustic-chic flair, warm French-Canadian hospitality and cachet as the only resort within easy access of Canada’s capital.

Set on 300 bucolic acres overlooking the Ottawa River, the landmark is a quintessential Canadian resort, with 210 guest rooms and suites. Soak in the 90 years of history at this former Canadian Pacific Railway hotel and private club, and take advantage of some 40 guest activities year-round.

In true resort style, everything is right here. Lounge by the largest indoor hotel pool in Canada, swim and sunbathe outside, and luxuriate at the spa. Boat in to our marina. Play 18 holes of golf, a match of tennis, enjoy curling, ice skating or cross-country skiing. Find solitude among our tranquil woods and cycling paths. Join us for a traditional Canadian Christmas celebration or springtime Quebecois sugar shack excursion. Sip white martinis in the château’s magnificent 1930s lodge by the towering three-story stone fireplace, the iconic centerpiece of the biggest log cabin ever built. Bienvenue (welcome)!

Discover Château Montebello’s best experiences


Traditionalists rave about our classic course, once the playground of an exclusive club preserve frequented by royals, gentry and world leaders. Golf great Stanley Thompson carved his 1931 links, surrounded by thick, old-growth forest and situated along the shores of the vast Ottawa River. Practice your swing on the rolling fairways set between picturesque ravines and valleys.



Toast a milestone, special birthday or anniversary — or just celebrate life! Sip cocktails and feast on succulent roasted meats, flavourful casseroles, creative salads, fresh garden vegetables and regional favourites in the grandeur of our historic lodge. And bring the whole family — children five and under dine for free. Don’t miss our grand Aux Chantignoles dining room.

Uncover your inner glow and find your bliss.
