Fairmont Le Manoir Richelieu
Set an hour and fifteen minutes from Quebec City in the Charlevoix region, this resort property is a destination in itself. Located in the rugged peaks of Point-Au-Pic, the 405 rooms are modern and luxurious, many with views of the St. Lawrence river and bubbling Jacuzzis to soak in after a day on the slopes or hiking the local area. Golf is a highlight: the 27-hole course designed by Darrell Huxham is one of the best in the country. The hotel manages to excel at both family-friendliness (there's babysitting, an on-site playground, toys, and sports galore) as well as romance (go for a horse-drawn carriage ride or spend the night listening to live music). There are four signature restaurants, with Le Charlevoix being the most upscale—it uses ingredients native to region, as well as local art and decor. Sunday brunch at the hotel is another a favorite.
