Came to Sutton after a short break in Quebec city. Prior to my arrival I know Sutton is famous for it’s mountains and skiing but when I left I am convinced this is an all season destination – really friendly people, beautiful scenery and above all excellent accommodation thanks to Lynda and Jay at Gite Vert Le Mont. As a traveller who stays at hotels more than up to 15 nights a month around the globe, I am very impressed by this lovely home away from home.
Tthe lovely B&B is right next to the centre of village with some really interesting and good shops. It’s located on the main road leading to the mountain for skiing (4kms) and will give you good access for winter sports, hiking, walking, or visiting vineyard. There are a lot of small villages nearby which are picturesque.
We stayed at Room 1 – Alice Spring. The room has some art works that Lynda acquired in Australia. It’s done in a very subtle way that blended into the character of the house. There is an en-suite bathroom with shower and a walk-in wardrobe. The room is large with plenty of sunshine. We particularly like the huge bed and the crispy bed linen.
The atmosphere of this B&B is very homely and cosy – just like staying with your old friends. Nothing is too much trouble. The house throughout is well decorated and very comfortable.
Excellent breakfast. There is a very warm dining room where guests can have breakfast from 8 to 10, and if the weather is good guests are welcome to make the most of the sunny veranda for breakfast. It is a very relaxing way to start the day. Nothing better than waking up to fresh brewed coffee, fresh juice and your choice of food – fruit compose, egg the way you like it, smoked salmon, bread, bagel, etc – all freshly made or local sourced.
The owners Lynda and Jay are very accommodating and hospitable. They welcome guests with coffee/tea and home-made biscuit or cake. They have a lot of local knowledge if you would like to go to different villages or vineyards. They also know Montreal and Quebec city well if you need any information.
I generally like sunny weather when I travel but one day during our stay it was raining. The house was so peaceful and quiet. The rhythm of the rain gave a cosy atmosphere. This is the magic about Sutton and Gite Vert le Mont – every moment is enjoyable and unforgettable.
And this B&B is definitely the best place to stay. I will definitely return and have no reservation in recommending it to anyone.
