If Hilary Clinton has stayed there, you know that this place is worth a look.
Located in the eclectic village of Wakefield, the Wakefield Mill Hotel & Spa (60 Mill Rd., Wakefield, Quebec) is a short 25-minute drive from Ottawa and sits beside MacLaren Falls in Gatineau Park. In 2010, the Mill played host to a variety of high-ranking political leaders (including the U.S. secretary of state)for the North American Foreign Ministers meeting.
The original mill was built in 1838 and in 2001, the Mill began its transformation into the luxury resort that it is today. The Mill offers 50 decorated guestrooms and a full-service spa. There is an outdoor swimming pool and a fine dining restaurant led by Executive Chef Romain Riva (who in addition to Clinton, has cooked for several Prime Ministers as well). There are a couple of outdoor hot tubs with perfect views of the waterfall. The mill offers the complimentary use of snowshoes in the winter as well as a cross-country ski trailhead room.
There is a full service spa and The Black Sheep Inn is right across the street where you can catch some great music.
Best value packages are available starting at $785 for a three night stay. There are also senior packages for those 55+ starting at $282/person.
With the amount of amenities available and the stunning views, there is little doubt that The Wakefield Mill & Spa just might be Quebec’s best kept secret. Not anymore!
