Why are you reporting this puzzle?

This such a pretty place.

While the Eastern Townships of Québec are the French-speaking answer to the rural idylls of northern New England, the Manoir Hovey takes its inspiration from something a little further south — this lakeside retreat was built a hundred years ago, in the style of George Washington’s Mount Vernon plantation.

It’s a fine local alternative for those Québecois in the know, and perhaps a bit of a surprise for those of us south of the border who are given to imagining rural Canada as something vast, flat and frozen. In fact Lake Massawippi, where Manoir Hovey makes its home, is as lush as anything on the American end of the Appalachians — and this classic country inn is an escape that’s so refined it borders on the aristocratic.

Thus the antique ambience of the 41 rooms, suites and cottages — they’re unashamedly old-fashioned in style, yet modern in appointment, from the goose-down duvets on the antique bed frames to the up-to-date bathrooms and the occasional Jacuzzi tub. The cuisine, too, is upscale and proud of it, with local ingredients and traditional French-Canadian dishes updated for a 21st-century palate.

I have watched it on and off but have not caught any in a while. I must admit that I really enjoyed it as it was based on Toronto. And then I found out out it was filmed in Hamilton, and the locations I was looking up, were not Toronto. Sort of spoiled it for me as I had thorough knowledge of Toronto but not Hamilton.

I have never been but was intrigued with the photo posted on a facebook page that I follow.

It is a five star, 36 room hotel embedded in the Quebec forests, in the heart of the Eastern Townships, SE of Montreal.

Manoir Hovey, is a 5-star Relais & Châteaux property which holds a story just waiting to be heard. The private estate was commissioned in 1900 by Henry Atkinson the president of Georgia Power in Atlanta. He designed his summer home after George Washington`s residence in Mount Vernon. Inspired by the era, Manoir Hovey elegantly marries authentic architecture, contemporary luxury and unparalleled service.
