While Saint Sauveur is located about two and a half hours from Ottawa, it makes for a great weekend drive from Ontario’s capital.

The small town is located inside of the stunning hills and views of the Laurentias Mountains and is actually less than an hour away from the must-try Mont Tremblant ski resort.

Why is Saint-Sauveur the perfect weekend destination? There are many reasons.

For one thing, the small town offers great walking paths and you will find yourself exploring all of the different shops, galleries and restaurants even if you didn’t originally intend to.

In addition, they are quaint restaurants also available and one of the best is the 40 Northh Steakhouse & Bar, which has been described as potentially being home to some of the best steaks in the country.

If you are looking for a place to stay while you are in town and on your weekend getaway, Le Chateau Montebello (392 Rue Notre Dame, Montebello QC) comes highly recommended. The high-end hotel offers great views and a fantastic restaurant. It was built in the tradition of the “Great Camps,” similar to Rockefeller’s compound in New York’s Adirondacks. Located in the woods between Ottawa and Montreal, the hotel was constructed from 10,000 cedar logs. There is a six-sided stone fireplace in the main room.

While it doesn’t receive a lot of attention, Saint-Sauveur might just be one of the best weekend getaway trips in Ontario.
