On June 1st, Groupe Germain Hotels proudly announced the addition of Le Germain Charlevoix Hotel & Spa into the family. Formerly known as l’Hôtel La Ferme, Le Germain Charlevoix Hotel & Spa is a jewel in the region: a peaceful haven, nestled between the river and majestic mountains.
Le Germain Charlevoix Hotel & Spa was built on an estate formerly belonging to the Petites Franciscaines de Marie, who, since 1891, actively contributed to the site’s agricultural and community roles. For nearly 80 years they tilled the soil and fed their congregation, as well as patients of the Hospice Sainte-Anne. Their main farm building was one of Canada’s biggest wooden agricultural structures until an accident caused it to burn down in 2007. Wishing to preserve the memory of this unique place for the townspeople, and all Charlevoisiens, Le Germain Charlevoix Hotel & Spa was constructed in the footprint of the religious congregation’s former farm.
Despite the new name, today’s experience at Le Germain Charlevoix Hotel & Spa still draws its inspiration from a visit to the farm: the different pavilions are named for various farm buildings, and the hotel is surrounded by fields where sheep and cows graze peacefully. At this small, calming oasis, even time itself seems to enjoy a break.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
