conference facilities outside of Montreal

I am helping to organize an international conference in the fall of 2012. I have been asked to scout out potential venues for the post conference of about 50 people. They are looking for a place about an hour outside of Montreal, not over the top expensive but with decent rooms, dining areas, food and good conference facilities. As people will be there from all over the world they would like a place on a lake and near stuff to do. A spot that will showcase our beautiful country!!

  1. I'd try Mt Tremblant or Chateau Montebello.

    1. Magog is also beautiful, but I dunno if they have the facilities.

              Thanks Allyson...looks great. I am going to look like a star with the conference planning commitee!! All suggestions are appreciated so I can give them a variety of choices. BTW I am very much a volunteer on this gig.

            The Ripplecove is actually in Ayer's Cliff. But it's right on the lake and is one of the few 4 star kitchen's combined with a 4 star accommodation around. The cost must be over the top though.
            If there, head to Wood's snack bar in the centre of town for a sublime poutine experience. And save a bit of cash to.
