Baby, it’s cold outside – but our recent stay at Fairmont le Château Montebello kept us warm, cozy and, of course, well-entertained (which my toddler surely appreciated).
Here are a few reasons why Fairmont le Château Montebello has become a traditional getaway for our family.
Thank you to Fairmont le Chaâteau Montebello for accommodating this wonderful trip! All opinions are 100% my own and I am so excited to share our family’s experience with you!
Last summer, we started visiting Fairmont le Château Montebello on a whim. Our family has always loved Fairmont hotels so, when we saw they had a property only over an hour away from Montreal, we were game. We figured it would be a great excuse for a quick getaway to go up north.
We welcomed spring by visiting at the beginning of the month. Since we had already been a handful of times, I figured it was time to share with you our favourite parts of this resort:
Our Family’s Ultimate Guide to Fairmont le Château Montebello
Visiting Montebello at the start of spring was definitely a different experience for our family. We’re used to coming up during the summertime, when constantly outdoors and walking around Fairmont’s beautiful property.
During the spring, Quebec can still feel brisk. And, being further up north, there was still snow and a frozen lake. However, that didn’t stop us from having an amazing time! Moreover, it was the hotel’s slow season, which offered a completely different experience. With smaller crowds, there was a beautiful, peaceful quality to our trip.
Here are some things to consider for your next trip to Fairmont le Château Montebello:
Fairmont le Château Montebello is best known for being the world’s largest log cabin; so you can bet that their rooms are extra cozy! They offer the best beds and fluffiest pillows for sleeping in. They even accommodate the little ones and provide them with tiny bathrobes – which are the cutest things you’ll ever see!
Because of the chilly weather, we spent a lot of time in our room – and we couldn’t complain. Sometimes, a good vacation means just hanging around and enjoying your family’s company.
Let’s Go Swimming!
Their indoor pool area is quite impressive! It’s extremely large and has a generous amount of seating surrounding it. Also, there are two hot tubs that are ready to warm you right up! (Psst: they even offered kid-sized life jackets, so Leo and I were able to go for a good swim while daddy worked.)
Beyond the Pool: More Activities!
You can find more than just an indoor pool on-site. Fairmont le Château Montebello is a luxury resort where activities come by the dozen: from ice skating to indoor tennis and squash, curling to à la carte spa treatments – there’s something for everyone. This is why we make it our family’s traditional getaway destination.

Being a content creator, I’m always on the lookout for our next best photo op. Whether you’re in their lavish main hall, filled with sofas and a central fireplace or in one of their beautiful rooms – there’ll surely be an opportunity to take the cutest photo for your next Instagram post!
Delicious Meal Offerings
I’m really not kidding when I say they have it all. Being at Fairmont le Château Montebello is more than just staying at a hotel. You feel like you’re right at home – but with so much more to do!
Their meal offerings are impressive with a large restaurant, a bistro and – our family’s favourite – their delicious breakfast buffet. It’s safe to say is that we bring our appetite and forget about any diets when we visit.
