Ten Top Summer Getaways: Hôtel Quintessence
Virtually every space at Quebec’s Hôtel Quintessence—from the spa’s massage rooms to the private whirlpool outside the presidential suite—looks out to Lake Tremblant and the pine-filled slopes of the Laurentian Mountains. Quintessence counters the rugged landscape with refinements that include inventive French cuisine, a greenhouse space for private dining, and a stunning lakefront infinity pool. Each of the 30 guest rooms also offers lake views, from an oversize tub in the bathroom. Set within the lively resort town of Mont-Tremblant, Quintessence hosts Ferrari events in summer and a stylish après-ski crowd in winter.
