About The Inn

Hovey Manor is truly one of Canada's most charming and romantic inns. Guests enjoy seclusion, affordable luxury and haute cuisine on 1800 feet of prime shoreline on Lake Massawippi in Quebec's Eastern Townships. The Manor was built at the turn of the century as a private estate modelled after George Washington's Mount Vernon home. Since 1950, Hovey Manor has been a prestigious resort inn, with complete facilities on-site for year-round vacation pleasures. The inn serves an international clientele and an exceptional bilingual staff extend personalized service in English or French.

Located on Lake Massawippi, just outside one of North Hatley, one of Quebec's most picturesque villages, the inn is only 75 minutes east of Montreal and 20 minutes north of Vermont.


Rooms at Hovey Manor are individually appointed and most have beautiful views of Lake Massawippi. Thirty nine guest rooms vary from small cozy rooms to spacious luxurious rooms with fireplaces, large Jacuzzi tubs, canopy beds and private lakeside balconies. Two very special suites, the Pines and the Briches, are among the most luxurious and beautifully appointed in all of Quebec. The Birches, as its name indicates, has a bathroom (pictured above) with vaulted ceilings and wallpapering that evokes a birch forest. The Pines has its own screened-in porch, perfect for sipping cocktails on a lazy summer day. Both suites are equipped with king-size canopy beds, double Jacuzzis, cuisinettes, wood-burning fireplaces and very large balconies with plenty of patio furniture. 

"Hovey Manor is an inn. Her table is that of a great restaurant. And the restaurant runs according to the grand hotel tradition. With an important and stylish staff; with an elaborate and intelligent wine list ... with a menu which offers not only a quality cuisine, but which gives a place of honour to regional products and their producers." -Françoise Kayler, La Presse

At Hovey Manor, the pursuit of a fine, innovative cuisine expertly served is a major preoccupation. Hovey Manor is one of Quebec's few "Table de Prestige" and enjoys an enviable reputation for its cuisine and wine cellar. Dinner, often accompanied by classical musicians, is the highlight of the day with varied and elaborate menus.

On-site facilities include the following:

  • Two sand beaches
  • Heated outdoor pool
  • Kayaks, canoes, paddleboats and windsurfers
  • Night-lit clay tennis court
  • 12-speed Touring bicycles
  • Cross-country skiing
  • Skating (skates supplied)
  • Ice fishing
  • Exercise room
  • Games room
  • Lake cruises aboard an antique mahogany boat

Activities enjoyed near to the inn include cycling, hiking, golf, horseback riding, dog sledding, snowmobiling and indoor tennis and squash.
