We've bragged about North Hatley on this blog before, but after a quick visit to the charming village this week we just have to say it again: it's really worth a visit, for anyone who travels to Montreal. Absolutely beautiful at this time of the year, blanketed in white.
I spent the night at the ultra cozy hotel Manoir Hovey, which overlooks Lake Massawippi and is a part of the prestigious Relais & Châteaux (full disclosure: let's just say I know the owners REALLY well and get a super special deal! :) )
From my room, I had this view of the lake:
And of a little cottage (below, right) that's been turned into a luxury suite:
I took these photos very early, and the lake seemed ethereal, as the mist rose from it:
I went down for breakfast and still couldn't stop snapping photos, the view from the dining room was... stunning.
It was sad to have to leave....
