Updated on May 16, 2024

A room is not “just a place to sleep.” Proof of this lies in these seven establishments, which, in their own special way, make any getaway here become even more memorable!

Auberge Nuits de St-Georges, in Bromont

It’s quiet, it’s chic, it has a history… It’s all good! Built in the heart of the town of Bromont, in 1881, what once was a private residence, offers nine suites, each with its unique style. With its fireplace and skylight, the sitting room is a true haven for relaxing. You can also enjoy the spa, the Finnish sauna or, when the weather permits, a view of Mount Brome from inside the flower garden. Another good note must be given to its breakfast offer which is mainly put together with organic products.

The Ecolodge of Entre cimes et racines, in Bolton-Est

Do you feel you need a fun-filled nature escape experience? Try one of the 14 cottages of this forest domain! Some have electricity and others don’t (for those who love to play at being a forest hermit!). About fifteen kilometres of roads and trails for hiking and for mountain biking, allow you to really get your blood flowing. Also on the program, rock climbing, a mini-farm and a giant maze to entertain your children.

Auberge Jeunesse Magog-Orford Hostel

Established on Merry Street, in Magog, this youth hostel is a charming landing spot for your visits to the area. Thirty-one units—a dorm and private rooms—welcome friends, families and couples who wish to stay in a place as friendly as its innkeepers. A café, a shared kitchen, a terrace where often, in summer, musical performances make this community-style travel trend most attractive.

The Ripplecove, in Ayer’s Cliff

At the Ripplecove Hotel & Spa on the Lake, you’ll find a five-star, no-fuss, friendly hotel offer. You can relax in the lounge overlooking the water. Or you might want to squat in one of the Adirondack chairs at the end of the dock. In short, as lovers, you’ll spend a truly delightful time here. Since you might also come here with a group of friends, there are two cottages offered as rentals on the site as well. Each has three bedrooms. One has its own heated pool, while the other gives you access to a private beach. Both are charmingly rustic.

La Chocolatière, in North Hatley

Dating back to 1896, originally, this building used to be … “an ice house!” Indeed, the village would store blocks of ice they would cut from the surface of Lake Massawippi! Today, it’s a cozy inn, managed by a family with seven children, which gives it its family atmosphere. Passionate about chocolate, the owners concoct gourmet breakfasts honouring their love of cocoa. So, there you go, reenergized and ready to explore this charming village on foot.

L’Espace du Carmel, in Danville

Are you looking for a place to gather the family and friends, to celebrate a special event or simply to have a good time together? Consider renting this old English school academy, which later became a monastery for the Carmelite sisters’ order from 1957 to 2010! Completely restored, it can accommodate 57 guests in 23 rooms. Outdoor lounging areas, aspa, petanque, a landscaped yard, a fully equipped kitchen to prepare your meals… It’s quite an original “chalet,” saved from being forgotten by local entrepreneurs.

The EXP chalets of the SEPAQ, at Mont-Mégantic’s National Park

For the best seats in the house to watch Mother Nature’s performances, opt for one of EXP chalets of the SEPAQ network. They’re spacious and have all the amenities, barbecue grills included, and are designed to lodge from two to four guests. You’ll especially appreciate the great fenestration, which allows you to feel closer to nature and the sky-light windows, strategically placed above your bed. Good night, dear stars! The park offers about ten of these beautiful wood modules, installed in a wooded area, near a whispering stream. Simply idyllic!
