Tee off where captains of industry and royals once did at this private club-turned-public-course. Play one of Quebec’s top-rated links, 18 holes designed by the great Stanley Thompson that winds through the forest framing panoramic vistas and rocky outcroppings between mountains and river. Craggy ravines, tributaries and dramatic elevation changes keep golfers challenged and engaged. You’ll feel like you’re the only one playing. Apres game, recount the day’s wins at the Golf Club Terrace and 18th hole bar.LEARN MORE
Curl up by the flickering fire at our inviting spa and wellness haven. In a chalet-style log cabin surrounded by the resort’s century-old woods, the ambiance is pure serenity. With décor inspired by Montebello’s natural beauty, the pitch roof, peeled log space naturally lit by a wall of windows feels more like a traditional Quebec home overlooking the marina, river and greenery. Read, rest and reboot. Get a healing massage by the fire, a pedicure on the veranda to the sound of birdsong, try a detoxifying body wrap or invigorating scrub. Or update your look with a pro manicure or pedicure. Nurture beauty both inside and out.LEARN MORE

And this year, we’ll be upping the ante for our 90th anniversary. Learn more.
