It was marvelous! Why is it so few Canadians know about it and why doesn't Le Chateau Montebello promote it to its guests!!!
From the chateau it's about a 2 minute walk to the Manoir - I'd say it's on the same property but perhaps not. The Manoir is run by Parks Canada. Anyways, a most beautiful elegant home - the lower floor that you see is furnished in many originals owned by the family. The guided tour costs about 7.00 and is worth so much more. You learn about the social mores of the time, the political connections of the Papineaus, etc. the gorgeous dumbwaiter in the dining room is to die for. I will try to time our next visit so that we can take High Tea the way the family would have enjoyed it. We're so glad that we accidentally found it on one of our walks - I still can't believe that it isn't actively promoted.

This was a tour of the main floor of the Papineau manor. The main floor is restored to what it would have looked like when the Papineau's lived there with 80% of the original furnishings (other 20% are supposed to be replicas). The guide was so knowledgeable and interesting. I found it fascinating to get a peek in this historical home and listen to the stories our guide was telling us. We were staying at the Fairmont Montebello for a few days so it was a fun way to pass some time while there.

I would not go out of my way to go to Manoir Papineau, but the surroundings are nice and Montebello is a nice stopover area if one needs to take a break on their way to Montreal or Gatineau/Ottawa. Buildings are well preserved, nice short walking trails, some animations. Probably much better when they are hosting special events

It was interesting to learn a bit of history during our recent visit to Montebello. Walking the grounds was enjoyable.
