Inn with Good Food for Honeymoon-Rec
Does anyone now about a great country Inn with great food/wine/rooms for my honeymoon late September?. We will be taking the train from Toronto.
I like Inn's but not the kind with too many doilies! Looking for great food and accommodation in unique Quebec setting.
Thanks in advance...
Since Auberge Hatley tragically burned down, L'Eau A La Bouche has to be the vanguard for the Quebec Inn/Restaurant. Although I have never been, it carries a boatload of recommendations, is one of only four restaurants in Canada with a relais gourmand distinction, and is also really pricey. Definetely worth a look.
North Hatley, as nice as it is, isn't accessible by public transportation. You can, however, get to West Brome, Sutton and Knowlton (Lac Brome) by bus. With the leaves usually turning colours around then, the Eastern Townships are a great place to be!
The annual Brome Lake Duck Festival, with chef demonstrations and tastings of duck delicacies is on Sept 23-24 and Sep 30-Oct 1, so imagine that Knowlton would be the most "happening" of the three.
I've never stayed there, but I imagine that the Lakeview Inn would be nice enough. I see that they even have a "Lover's Getaway" package! Don't know about their food, either, but they boast about their dining room on their "Gastronomy" page. Also, there's a number of other places in town and some of them are bound to be decent.
