Venue

Fairmont Le Château Montebello, the world’s largest log cabin, is nestled in the heart of the scenic Montebello village. Surrounded by nature, the hotel is famed for its rustic yet luxurious accommodations, excellent service and refined gastronomy.

Historically founded as a private club in 1930, Fairmont Le Château Montebello has had the privilege of hosting many political figures, royalty and other celebrities.

The resort is now an ideal destination both for leisure and business travelers.

Although Montebello, QC can be easily accessed from both Montreal and Ottawa, we recommend NAPS attendees fly to Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport in Montreal (YUL), because ground transportation to Montebello will only be accessible from Montreal.
