Celebrated for their majestic beauty, Quebec's Laurentian Mountains provide a stunning backdrop for Hotel Quintessence. Tucked into the foot on Mont Tremblant, northwest of Montréal, this Old World boutique hotel was declared a "gem" in November 2004 by Town & Country. Decadently spacious suites, all with French doors that open onto private balconies or terraces, feature magnificent views of Lake Tremblant. Savor traditional specialties at Restaurant la Quintessence, sip a fine vintage in a secluded wine cellar turret and spoil yourselves with a massage at Spa Sans Sabots.
A destination this classic deserves activities to match. Witness the ritual sugaring of maple syrup, play a round on a nearby golf courses, visit the legendary Circuit Mont Tremblant or cruise the lake on the inn's circa 1910 33-foot motorboat. During cooler months the winter activities concierge will be happy to help you plan cross-country skiing, snow shoeing and dog-sledding. For an unforgettable experience, embark on an aerial tour over Lake Ouimet or visit Le Scandinave, offering Scandinavian baths, thermal falls and deer watching.
