At first we hesitated to go in the winter but it turns out there are plenty of activities to keep you busy, both indoors and out. Curling, hockey, tennis, billiards, ping pong, snow shoeing, and more. It was a great romantic getaway, even if there were a lot of kids around.
We dined for 2 nights and found the smaller bistro to have better food, and at a fraction of the cost.
** take note that if your package includes breakfast brunch, make sure it is not confused with the "special" Sunday brunch that they offer at a rediculous cost. We got mixed up in that BUT they did make it right.
The spa is very nice. We had a couples massage in their special room included in our package. Very nice. Their treatments are a bit pricy but they do give receipts for insurance claims. You just have to ask them to provide this for you.
All in all it was a wonderful 3 day getaway. And being only 1 1/2 hours from Montreal made it worth the drive.
